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.

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.
