How to Pick Lucky Lottery Numbers for the Aussie Superdraw

How to Pick Lucky Lottery Numbers?

The last Australian Superdraw of the year is approaching fast.

On Dec 31st, Australian Lotto 6/45 will have a special jackpot worth a magnificent A$31 MILLION!

With such a life-changing prize up for grabs, getting those lottery numbers right has never been more important.

So have a quick look through LottoExpress’s list of the 5 most common ways of picking lottery numbers and decide which one is perfect for you!

 

1. Play Hot Numbers

According to the frequency theory, certain numbers are believed to have a better chance of being drawn than others.

These “hot” numbers are ones that have shown up frequently in past draws. So it stands to reason that these numbers are likely to show up again, leading to a higher chance of winning.

The two most commonly drawn or hot numbers in the Australian Superdraw between 2006 and 2014 were 21 and 1. These were drawn a lucky 14 and 13 times, respectively.

Other hot numbers include: 2, 5, 7, 23, 27, 30, 32, 40

 

2. Play Cold Numbers

“Cold” numbers are less common and barely showed up in previous draws.

This theory is based on the law of averages which states that all numbers have an equal chance of being drawn – and that the longer a specific number hasn’t been drawn, the more likely it is that it will show up next time.

The top two cold numbers in the Australian Superdraw held between 2006 and 2014 are 18 and 28. Both have only shown up three times!

Other cold numbers include: 20, 24, 36, 37

 

3. Play Hot & Cold Numbers

If you enjoy lotto strategy but can’t decide on which number theory feels right for you, why not mix it up?

Shortlist some “hot” and “cold” numbers and play both, to improve your chances of winning.

Did You Know? 7 is considered to be the universal lucky number.

 

4. Play Quick Picks 

If you don’t fancy the hassle of number-picking, consider letting the computer do all the work for you.

Quick Picks are randomly generated numbers that assign your lottery numbers for you. A majority of lottery players prefer this quick, stress-free option for a couple of reasons.

For one, Quick Picks tend to cover the less commonly used numbers in each lottery’s number pool (the full spread of numbers available to pick from).

There have also been a  few convincing stats linking Quick Picks and jackpot winners.  For instance, according to the US Powerball website, between 70-80% of winning lottery tickets sold are quick picks.

 

 5. Play Your Personal Lucky Numbers

Finally, the classic option: playing your own lucky numbers.

Lot of lotto players prefer playing numbers that have personal significance to them and there are both pros and cons to this method.

One downside is that most people’s lucky numbers are often birthdays, anniversaries, and other important calendar dates. (In other words, numbers between 1 and 31.) But for all major lotteries, the number matrix extends well beyond 31, meaning a whole range of numbers is left out.

But on the other hand, some lottery observers insist that you should pick your own lottery numbers, because there is a good chance that quick pick systems assign commonly used numbers.

The Lottery You Should Play, According to Your Star Sign!

Let the stars decide: Find out which lottery is right for you, based on your star sign!

Astrology, horoscopes, star signs….We’re all familiar with the notion that the planets can have an influence on our personality.

Many even use their horoscopes for making decisions about their future, finances, and even their love life.

But what about the lottery?

If you’ve ever wondered which lottery is perfect for you according to your star sign, LottoExpress has got you covered!

Here’s how to pick the right lottery for you, based on your star sign:

 



lottery and horoscopeARIES (March 21 – April 19)

As a fire sign, energetic Aries is always on the go. One of the most active zodiac signs, it’s in their nature to take action, sometimes without thinking it through. Always up for a challenge, Aries are characterized by their confidence, enthusiasm and determination. However, they can also be impatient and short-tempered.

American Powerball is the perfect lottery for this fiery sign. With its record-breaking jackpot sizes that reach into the billions and enormous rollovers, American Powerball has all the dynamism, speed and massive payouts that an Aries craves!

Lucky Numbers for Aries: 1, 9

Lucky Days: Tuesday

 


lottery and horoscopeTAURUS
(April 20 – May 20)

People born under the Taurus sign are usually very practical, responsible and dependable. They can also be extremely stubborn, which often comes in handy when it comes to seeing things through! You can always count on a Taurus to be the voice of reason in any moment of chaos or disorder. Many also have a fine appreciation for beauty and material pleasures.

Australian Lotto 6/45 is a practical option for the Taurus lotto player. With the best odds of winning the jackpot and being 42% easier to win than other 6/49 lotteries, this weekly lotto is as reliable as it comes – a perfect match for the most reliable sign in the zodiac!

Lucky Numbers for Taurus: 2, 4, 6, 11, 20, 29, 37

Lucky Days: Monday, Friday

 


lottery and horoscopeGEMINI
(May 21 – June 20)

Symbolized by twins, Geminis often have a versatile personality. They can be social, expressive and fun-loving as well as serious, thoughtful and often indecisive.  Ruled by Mercury, Geminis are often excellent communicators and make good writers, journalists and artists.

Australian Powerball is the perfect lotto for this dual-natured sign. Inspired by American Powerball, this Australian lotto offers huge prize payouts like its American counterpart but with the bonus of Australian tax-free winnings!

Lucky Numbers for Gemini: 3, 8, 12, 23

Lucky Days: Wednesday

 


lottery and horoscopeCANCER
(June 21 – July 22)

Deeply intuitive, loyal and sympathetic, it’s not always easy to figure out a Cancer sign. With the moon as their ruling planet, Cancers can often be sensitive and prone to mood swings. Strong family ties and a tranquil home life are important to most Cancers and they are always ready to lend a helping hand.

Canadian Lotto 6/45 is a great choice of lottery for a Cancer. Much like this often-misunderstood sign, Canada’s largest lotto is sometimes lost in the shadow of  American classics like Mega Millions and Powerball. However, with overall odds of 1 in 6 and annual payouts of over CAD$905 million, it’s definitely a lotto to keep an eye on!

Lucky Numbers for Cancer: 2, 7, 11, 16, 20, 25

Lucky Days: Monday, Thursday

 

lottery and horoscope

LEO (July 23 – Aug 22)

Self-confident, cheerful Leos are born leaders and expect to achieve anything once they set their mind on it! A typical fire sign, Leos are risk-takers and always up for adventure. They also tend to be temperamental and egoistic. Ruled by the Sun, Leos are generous, loyal and often have a great sense of humour.

EuroMillions has all the excitement and drama a Leo enjoys. Europe’s largest transnational lottery (with jackpots reaching up to €190 million and 13 prize categories) make it one of the world’s most rewarding lotteries – perfect for this king-of-the-jungle sign!

Lucky Numbers for Leo: 1, 4, 10, 13, 19, 22

Lucky Days: Sunday

 

lottery and horoscopeVIRGO (Aug 23 – Sept 22)

Practical, analytic Virgos are often the most cautious of all the zodiac signs. They have great attention to detail and a methodical approach to life, leaving little to chance. Most enjoy organization in every aspect of their lives and are great communicators. An Earth sign, Virgos are grounded, hardworking and organized – but can also be shy and very self-critical at times.

Irish Lotto 6/45, with its superior stats, is probably the only lotto analytic Virgo would enjoy!  Thanks to its impressive overall odds of 1 in 29, as well as the fact that it is 76% easier to win than other 6/49s lottos due to its small number pool – Irish Lotto is known as one of the most winnable lottos around.

Lucky Numbers for Virgo: 5, 14, 23, 32, 41

Lucky Days: Wednesday

 

lottery and horoscopeLIBRA (Sept 23 – Oct 22)

Fair-minded, gracious Libras are usually characterized by their keen minds, diplomacy and peaceful nature. Partnerships are important to Libras, who often dislike doing anything alone. They tend to avoid confrontations and can be known to carry grudges. With Venus as their ruling planet, most Libras have a keen eye for beauty and like to be surrounded with art, music and gorgeous places.

German Lotto 6/49 is an apt choice of lottery for Libras who tend to prefer quality over quantity. With new rules in 2013 for better odds, chances of winning this European lotto have increased by 74%!

Lucky Numbers for Libra: 6, 15, 24, 33, 42

Lucky Days: Friday

 

lottery and horoscopeSCORPIO (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Passionate, mysterious and relentless – you’ll know a Scorpio by their determination, loyalty and their desire to be always right. While many Scorpios may come across as calm and aloof, there is usually a maelstrom of emotions brewing under the surface. They have a tendency towards jealously and distrust but despite this, make excellent leaders.

Spanish Lotto 6/49 is the perfect fit because much like this water-sign, there is more than meets the eye to this lottery. For instance, if you hit all the main numbers and the bonus number, you win not one – but two – jackpot prizes!

Lucky Numbers for Scorpio: 9, 18, 27, 36, 45,

Lucky Days: Tuesday

 

lottery and horoscopeSAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Curious, energetic and idealistic, most people born under Sagittarius are travelers at heart. Their open-mindedness, philosophical world-view and desire for freedom motivates them to constantly seek out new experiences. Like other fire signs, Sagittarius can be impatient and quick to anger but tend to forgive easily.

American Mega Millions is one of the few lotteries to entice this star sign. With jackpots up to US$656 million and impressive overall odds of 1 in 15, the chance of winning a lifetime travel fund is too good to pass up for the ever-wandering Sagittarius!

Lucky Numbers for Sagittarius: 3, 12, 21, 30

Lucky Days: Thursday

 

lottery and horoscope

CAPRICORN (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Practical, disciplined Capricorn is said to be the most serious of the zodiac signs. Their strong sense of independence and self-control means they have the potential to be great leaders, but it also makes them slightly stubborn and critical. With Saturn as their ruling planet, most Capricorns are great at financial saving and strive for the best in everything they do.

Eurojackpot is the ideal lottery for the practical Capricorn. Designed for more frequent jackpot payouts, this European lotto produces more winners on average than other lotteries of its size!

Lucky Numbers for Capricorn: 1, 4, 8, 10, 13, 17, 19, 22, 26

Lucky Days: Saturday

 

lottery and horoscopeAQUARIUS (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

Independent and original, Aquarius-borns are deep-thinkers and highly intellectual people who enjoy helping others, especially when it comes to problem solving. In fact, without mental stimulation, Aquarius-born people quickly grow bored and lose motivation. They are sometimes pegged as aloof and uncompromising, but that’s because they know exactly what they want!

Australian Oz Lotto is the perfect lottery for this Air sign. With the largest jackpot on record in Australia, 2 bonus numbers that offer additional chances to win, and better jackpot odds than most 6/49 lottos, it’s clear to see why the analytic Aquarius-born would go for this Aussie lotto!

Lucky Numbers for Aquarius: 4, 8, 13, 17, 22, 26

Lucky Days: Saturday, Sunday

 

lottery and horoscopePISCES (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Gentle Pisces is often hailed as the most tolerant of all the zodiac signs. They tend to be selfless and are always willing to help out without looking to get anything in return. As a water sign, they have a high level of emotional intelligence and empathy for others. Generous to the end, Pisces can sometimes be too trusting of others.

British Lotto 6/59 is the perfect lottery for this compassionate sign. Besides making thousands of millionaires, thanks to its lucrative prizes, this lotto has contributed over £35 billion since 1994 for good causes and charitable projects all across the United Kingdom.

Lucky Numbers: 3, 7, 12, 16, 21, 25, 30, 34, 43, 52

Lucky Days: Monday, Thursday

5 Things You Should NEVER Do After Winning the Lottery

How to Prevent a Big Lottery Win from Ruining Your Life?

If you’ve won a major lottery win, congratulations! Now here’s what you need to know about keeping that cash…

Imagine you’re holding the winning numbers for the US$205 MILLION American Powerball jackpot.

Winning the lottery is a definitely a life-changing moment – but not always for the better.

Sudden wealth brings its own host of problems and news feeds are littered with stories of major lottery winners who lost it all.

So if you’re lucky enough to land a substantial sum of money on the lottery, here are the top 5 things NOT to do.

 

 1. GOING PUBLIC

Why: You’ll attract unwanted media scrutiny, attention from “long-lost distant relatives” and scammers looking to make a quick buck.

Do This Instead: Remain anonymous when you claim the prize. Many state lotteries allow you to send a trusted representative on your behalf.  If people around you notice the change in your lifestyle – the new house, new car – it’s still a good idea to say as little as possible. Mention you’ve come into money, but don’t say how much.

what not to do after winning the lottery

2. QUITTING YOUR JOB THE NEXT DAY

Why: You may have won a life-changing amount of money. But this is NOT the time to make hasty decisions.

Do This Instead: Take some time and allow your win to sink in. Many financial experts recommend not making any major financial-type decisions – like quitting your job – within the first few months.

 

3. HAVING NO FINANCIAL PLAN

Why: Even if you’ve won hundreds of millions in the lottery, you’ll be surprised at how quickly you can lose it.

Do This Instead: After you’ve knocked the top two or three things off your bucket list, it’s time to get serious and consult a professional. If you want to stay wealthy for years to come, seek financial help and make a plan for the future.

 

what NOT to do after winning the lottery

4. HIRING THE FIRST FINANICAL PLANNER LISTED ON GOOGLE

Why: You’re trusting this person with your money. Do you want someone who’ll do what’s best for you or what’s best for his own pocket?

Do This Instead: Do your research on different financial planners. Interview the ones who make your short-list and compare their responses before you make any decisions. Find out about their experience and the types of strategies they have in mind. Finally, make sure you understand how they’ll be charging you.

 

 5. TRYING TO HELP EVERYONE

Why: It’s great that you want help out your family and friends. But helping the wrong way can often lead to disastrous results.

Do This Instead: Consider the impact your lavish gifts and donations might make on your nearest and dearest. For instance, buying your folks a million dollar house might seem great on paper, but would they be able to handle the property taxes on their own?


So now that you know what NOT to do after winning the lottery, you’ll know exactly what to do if you end up winning one of the world’s biggest lottos.

Plus, when you play with LottoExpress, you are guaranteed your privacy. Whether you win US$5 or US$5 Million, you are never asked to make your winnings public. We ensure that you start your new life, hassle-free!

How to multiply my chances of winning the lottery?

LottoExpress shares exclusive tactics to improve your chances of winning the lottery!

“Is there a sure-fire secret to winning the lottery?”

In a word?

No.

There isn’t any “sure-fire” or foolproof way to win the lottery, despite all the claims out there. When it comes down to it, the lottery is a game of chance.

However, there are a number of tactics that CAN help you increase the likelihood of a lottery win.

Here are 6 simple things you can do to boost your chances of winning!

 

1. PLAY  

This one’s a bit obvious but it’s worth stating: the first step towards winning the lottery is to play.

As the lottery is a game of chance, playing – and playing regularly – will improve your chances of winning. Most lotteries have draws once or twice a week. Pick a favourite, decide the number of draws you want to go for, and try your luck!

If you don’t fancy the notion of playing the lottery weekly or bi-weekly, here’s another strategy to try. When you do play the lottery, buy more tickets. This will improve your chances of winning for that particular draw. Many people go this route – buying multiple tickets when the jackpots are extremely high.

 

2. USE QUICK PICKS

Another tactic is to use Quick Picks when selecting numbers.

When you use Quick Picks, computer-generated numbers are chosen for you at random.

Studies show that people who pick their own numbers, often select them based on days of the month (birthdays, anniversaries, etc.) This means that numbers over 31 are often neglected. Experts claim that by using Quick Picks, the numbers assigned to you are more likely to include those higher digits more effectively.

Plus, according to the Powerball website, 70 to 80% of lottery winners were Quick Picks!

3. FORM A LOTTERY SYNDICATE

Forming a lottery syndicate is by far one of the most common tactics employed by lottery players.

Basically, you multiply your chances of winning by pooling your money with your mates, colleagues or family to buy a large number of tickets for a specific lottery draw.

This way, you have a share in a large number of tickets, at an affordable price. This tactic has seen quite a bit of success as some of the largest jackpots have been won by syndicates.

However, keep in mind that if you win as part of a syndicate, your winnings will be shared among the group.

 

4PICK THE MOST COMMONLY DRAWN NUMBERS

Veteran lottery players will often talk about ‘Frequency Theory’ or ‘Hot Numbers’.

Simply put, certain numbers are believed to have a better chance of being drawn than others. To boost your winning chances, simply make sure you have a couple of these numbers in your ticket!

If you look at number frequency stats for specific lotteries, you’ll see this is true: some numbers DO show up more frequently than others.

For instance, the top 5 numbers that most commonly show up for the US Powerball are: 26, 22, 16, 41 and 35!

5. TRY LOTTERY WHEELING SYSTEMS  

Out of all the tactics employed, lottery wheeling systems may be the most complicated, but they are known for improving your odds significantly.

Simply put, wheeling systems are a technique that lets you play every possible combination for your selected range of numbers. By doing so, players are often guaranteed a win! There’s a lot of information out there on lottery wheeling systems, so if you decide to go this route, do some research first!

 

6. LASTLY, CHOOSE YOUR LOTTERIES WISELY!

Some lotteries have better odds of winning than others – that’s just a fact.

While this does not guarantee a win, it does mean that you have more chances of winning a prize playing these lotteries than others!

For instance, the Australian Lotto 6/45 has the best odds of winning the jackpot.

Irish Lotto has great overall odds of 1 in 29 and it’s also 76% easier to win than the UK National Lottery.


Thanks to online lottery websites like LottoExpress, you now have the opportunity to choose and select the lotteries with the best odds from around the world!

You can also enter multiple draws with a few simple clicks, instead of physically having to go outside and purchase a ticket!
