What Lottery Game is Played Tonight?

what lottery game is played tonight

When selecting which lottery game to play tonight, several factors should be taken into account. First is whether or not you want the chance of a massive jackpot win; secondly is what are the odds of winning; both factors will help guide which games best match up with your goals and expectations.

While selecting a game that supports your goals, you can increase your odds by selecting certain numbers. For example, numbers that have not won in twelve or fewer games account for over 75 percent of winning ones and this could be because human intuition suggests it could soon return into contention.

Another way to increase your odds is to opt for state-run lottery games instead of multi-state lotteries, as state-run games tend to offer larger prizes and better chances of success than their multi-state counterparts. Also, by opting out of multi-state lotteries you reduce the likelihood of sharing any jackpot prizes among multiple players, which can sometimes be uncomfortable or awkward situations.

At last, it is essential to play smart. According to Kenneth Alexander from USC Mathematics Department, lottery gambling does not make financial sense but many enjoy the dream of winning big. He advises not spending more than $2 on any ticket and playing with money that you cannot afford to lose.

Although there is no definitive answer when it comes to choosing the best lottery game, Jared James, former PriceWaterhouseCoopers CPA and Mergers & Acquisition Specialist has come up with an idea which may increase your odds of success: purchasing multiple tickets together at once for maximum odds.
