Although there are a ton of “methods” designed to beat the lotto from picking significant dates to using a lottery number generator software and even those who rely on magic spells. However if you are really serious about winning Powerball prizes then you will need a much more scientific approach.
However, you should note that professional lottery players have a different mindset to most other players. When they target the powerball with their techniques they are not aiming for the top prize.
Just like the techniques involved in other lotto games such as pick 6 or pick 3, the most successful Powerball strategies do not target the jackpot prize. Why is this?
Well would you prefer to win one big prize of, say, $5 million or would you prefer to win 100 prizes with each prize being worth $500,000?
Obviously you would want the 20 smaller wins because they equal $50 million!
Also win you win only once you run the risk of having to share your prize with other potential winners. If there were a lot of winners on the draw you won on then you may end of getting much less than you expected and maybe not even enough to retire
The Odds of Winning the US Powerball
The U.S. Powerball game is a 5/69 lottery format. So the rule is to pick five numbers from 1 to 69. There are 11 million ways you can do it in Powerball. So your probability of matching five numbers is 1 in 11 million chances.
However, to win the jackpot, you also need to match the extra ball called the Powerball from 1 to 26. So the odds to win the Powerball game becomes one is to 292 million.
In simple terms, you might need 292 million attempts to win the jackpot. So if you play one ticket every week, then you need 292 million weeks to win. That sounds like playing for 5.6 million years or possibly more.
The odds are so terrible that you probably have a better chance of becoming the next Governor of the State of California. So it’s not easy to win the Powerball.
In my opinion, the Powerball is one of the hardest lotteries to win in the world.
But Americans do play anyway. And if Powerball is one of your favorite lotto games, then you might as well do your best.
That said, mathematics remains the only way to get the best shot possible. And specifically, I am talking about combinatorics or combinatorial math and probability theory.
The Powerball, like any other lottery systems in the world, is a random game. So you cannot predict the next winning numbers.
Fortunately, you can improve your probability of winning if you know how to use a lottery wheel properly in combination with number patterns.
Now let me show you what combinatorial math and probability theory can do to level up your lotto playing strategy.
These two mathematical tools are essential in the study of number patterns that can help determine the best combinations to play and the worst ones to avoid at all costs.
Before we go to the advanced patterns, let’s start with the simple pattern first.
