# The Lottery Game Plan

Last updated on March 21, 2024

Do you follow a lottery game plan when playing? If not, you must create one for yourself. The odds of the lottery are your tough enemy. Remember that only one combination will be picked to win the main prize out of millions of numbers. It’s the type of odds that no system can predict or manipulate, not even by your favorite psychic guy next door.

Remember that there’s no way you can trick the lottery.1 It’s not easy to win a lotto jackpot. That’s a mathematical fact that you cannot change.

Lottery draws are completely random. However, my mathematical studies show that it follows a deterministic behavior, which is your key to playing the lottery with the best shot possible. Read on: A Truly Random Lottery with a Deterministic Outcome

In short, there is a mathematical way to play the lottery.

However, a mathematical approach to increase your chances of winning is one thing.2 Playing the lottery with the right mindset is another thing. You must understand that the lottery is only entertainment for a cause, and a lottery game plan is essential.

You win only after a long streak of losses. Your lottery losses are just the price of the entertainment. Some players do not realize the concept of “fun” in the lottery. In the end, they chase their losses. This attitude is a clear sign that a player is falling into a lottery addiction problem.3 With the proper mindset, any negative consequences could be prevented.

## Be a Responsible Player

I propose the following lottery game plan to cover both the mathematical aspect and the lottery as an entertainment activity so you can play the lottery with more chances of winning without losing your shirt.

## The Lottery Game Plan Explained

The primary objective is to save enough money to play more lines, then repeat the process repeatedly until you win.

Picture yourself like a war general who fights with a war strategy (game plan), enough soldiers (more tickets), and strengthening his people (saving money) before going to war.

### 1. Choose a strategy that works

When I say strategy, it doesn’t count the hot numbers and other strategies that don’t work.4 Many lottery strategy myths are going around the internet, and it pays to know them if you want to win. So the next time you play the lottery, don’t pick numbers based on the most common winning lottery numbers.5

I propose a lottery game plan that is based on mathematics. I recommend using combinatorial math and probability theory to determine the dominant combinations in the lottery. Read on: How to Win the Lottery According to Math.

### 2. Play more lines to increase your chances of winning

It’s hard to win the lottery if you play one line. That’s a fact.

The main reason you want to play the lottery is to win. The best way to achieve that is to play as many lines as possible. However, buying tickets randomly is not a strategic approach. Mathematically speaking, buying many tickets can be more effective using a lottery wheel. Read on: Lottery Wheel: A Clever Mathematical Strategy That Works

However, playing the lottery with more lines is not cheap. So, you must check your financial capability to know how much you can save for your lottery entertainment.

You know how much money you can save if you set a specific number of lines you can play.

Alternatively, you can start a lottery syndicate so you can cover as many lines as possible.6

### 3. Save money to play more lines

Budgeting is king. This step is a crucial part of your lotto-playing strategy. You don’t want to sacrifice your groceries to play the lottery.

Failure to save money for a lottery game means a big disaster.

Like I always say, you should set aside money for your entertainment.

There is nothing wrong with dreaming of becoming a lottery jackpot winner one day. But you have to do it with the right attitude and discipline.

The whole point of saving money on lottery entertainment is that you are spending money you can afford to lose.

If you win the lottery, you can enjoy your life all you want. If you keep losing, you can move on without losing your shirt. Your next move is to start saving money again for the next round of lottery play, and you don’t sacrifice anything.

Remember that the lottery is just entertainment. It’s not fun playing when you can’t pay your utility bill.

### 4. Know when to play the lottery

If you have enough savings to cover all your lines, then you know it’s the perfect time to play.

The expected frequency, computed through the probability formula, will allow you to determine how to time your play. For example, if your favorite pattern just appeared in yesterday’s draw, then it’s unlikely that the same combinatorial pattern will occur in the next draw. It will take some more draws before a similar composition reoccurs.

A lottery game plan must consider the success-to-failure ratio of your combination.7 Use the Lotterycodex calculator to calculate this information for you.

### 5. Prepare the numbers

Use a lotto number generator to make sure that your combinations belong to the group with a more favorable success-to-failure ratio.8

Use the same set of combinations over and over. Some lottery systems allow you to use the same form over and over. If you are playing multiple lines, this will save you time. There is no need to change your numbers each time you play.9

If you consistently play the same set of numbers, it’s just a matter of time before one of your combinations becomes the winner.

### 6. Play The Lottery

Usually, the jackpot keeps increasing if no one wins.

It would be best to never look at the jackpot prize to affect your action. Whether it’s the minimum jackpot prize or higher, play the lottery. As long as you have enough savings, you’re good to go.

If you sign your ticket, no one can steal it from you. A lotto ticket is a bearer instrument, meaning anyone can claim the prize if they lose their ticket. You can only claim the prize upon presenting a valid ID when you sign your name.

Additionally, when you play the lottery, do it with a positive outlook that you will win. Think positive so that you attract positive results.

### 7. Check the results yourself.

Do not give your tickets to the lottery cashier to check if you won. The cashier may return a different ticket you did not play. If you must hand your ticket to someone, ensure you have your signature at the back to prevent anyone from stealing your good fortune.

The best thing to do is to check everything yourself. For example, the experience of one devastated UK player after the UK lottery group Camelot refused to pay his multi-million-pound prize for his failure to check and keep his ticket.10

### 8. Save your small winnings

If you did not win the jackpot but did win some small division prizes, add your winnings to your lottery fund. Adding more to your savings will allow you to play more lines.

Saving money should be a priority when designing a lottery game plan.

Of course, you always have so many options. If you have been reading my articles, you know that I put my money in the stock market and mutual funds rather than the lottery. So, I suggest you consider investing part of that small winnings into your retirement plan.

But if you are into fun, add your small winnings to your lottery entertainment fund to add more tickets the next time you play.

### 9. If you win the jackpot

Keep quiet and relax. It’s possible that during this time, you will find yourself in a maze of confusion. As a jackpot winner, you need to stay calm.

Probably the best first step is to “STOP” planning what to do with the money.

When you know you’re a lottery player, do nothing for one month.

In the interim, look for three people:

• a certified public account
• a lawyer
• a certified financial planner

Keep your ticket in the safest place possible until a team of professionals is put in place to manage your new-found fortune. And when I say “professionals,” I mean the ones licensed to do professional services. I didn’t mean just about anyone who happens to have bookkeeping know-how or your best friend for 40 years.

### 10. Claim your big prize

If you already have a financial team, let them claim the prize on your behalf. Deborah Jacobs of Forbes recommends staying anonymous if your state rules permit it.

Rules on winner publicity vary by state. In New York, for example, winners’ names are a public record. Elsewhere it may be possible to maintain your anonymity by setting up a trust or limited liability company to receive the winnings, says Beth C. Gamel, a CPA with Pillar Financial Advisors in Waltham, MA. A client of Gamel’s who won a past lottery did that and had a lawyer claim the prize on behalf of the trust. In South Carolina, it’s also possible to remain anonymous.
