Picking Your Numbers
Numbers that show up more frequently than other numbers are known as hot numbers.
Hot numbers are statistically more likely to come up in a winning line.
On the flip side those numbers that appear in winning lines less often are known as cold numbers.
Cold numbers are statistically less likely to come up in a winning line.
So, to give yourself a statistically higher chance of picking numbers that will come up in the winning line simply avoid cold numbers and choose your picks from the hot numbers.
How do you do this?
You simply look up your powerball official site for the hot and cold numbers.
Hot and cold numbers are only half the story of how to win at powerball though.
Most lottery players will simply choose random numbers for their picks.
Of course many players use significant dates or numbers that seem in some way special to them or that stand-out. They look for “signs” such as a repeating number that comes up consistently such as the number on a bus they see is the same as the number on a door they notice that matches a registration on a vehicle that caught their eye etc. This is probably more to do with selective attention than any mystical, Godly or universal intervention though.
Picking random numbers in any lotto game is useless and choosing your numbers based on their “significant” meanings will give you no added advantage of other players.
However there are certain sequences of numbers that are very unlikely to be drawn and so to give yourself a fighting chance in a lotto draw you should avoid those numbers that are less likely to come up in the winning line.
Once you’ve decided on a method for choosing your numbers you still have work to do. There is more you need to do to win the powerball after you have your chosen numbers.
Once you have picked your selection you must then wheel those numbers!
Wheeling is an often misunderstood concept even among lottery players who use it.
Firstly, let me dispel a lingering myth: lottery number wheeling is not a means of landing a jackpot win.
Although wheeling your numbers will significantly increase your odds of landing a jackpot prize it is not the main aim for using it.
Many people are disappointed when they learn that there is no method for securing a jackpot and still cling to the desire to land one. When they learn about wheeling they get excited about winning the jackpot and want to wheel as many numbers as possible to make their dream a reality.
So, can they succeed?
Yes, wheeling numbers does give you a huge improvement in your odds of winning a jackpot prize but this is not its main purpose and you should never get caught-up in chasing the jackpot. If it happens great but if it happens it is mostly down to luck and we don’t want to rely on luck; we want to rely on the mathematics of probability manipulation.
