Lottery Strategies to Help You Win Republic of South Africa Lotto 6/52
Lottery numbers are randomly drawn. But randomly drawn numbers form patterns that can be tracked and used to our advantage. Having carefully analyzed all the drawings in past lotto results of more than 200 different lotto games worldwide, with histories going back as far as 1955, we have verified the following incredibly simple rule:
That which is LEAST POSSIBLE happens LEAST OFTEN.
The key to Smart Luck’s successful lotto number selection methods is playing the probabilities. If you play a pattern that occurs only five percent of the time, you can expect that pattern to lose 95 percent of the time, giving you no chance to win 95 percent of the time. So, don’t buck the probabilities.
How to WIN Republic of South Africa Lotto with 8 Easy Lotto Tips
ODD-EVEN LOTTO NUMBER TIPS
When you select your South African Lotto numbers, try to have a relatively even mix of odd and even numbers. All odd numbers or all even numbers are rarely drawn, occurring less than 3 percent of the time. The best mix is to have 2/4, 4/2 or 3/3 odd/even, which means two odd and four even, or four odd and two even, or three odd and three even. One of these three patterns will occur in 81 percent of the drawings.
HIGH-LOW LOTTO NUMBER TIPS
Winning numbers are usually spread across the entire number field. If we take a number field and cut it in half, we have the low half and the high half. In a 52-number game like South African 6/49 Lotto, numbers 1 to 26 would be in the low half, and numbers 27 to 52 would be in the high half. All high numbers or all low numbersare rarely drawn, occurring only 3 percent of the time. The best mix is to have 2/4, 4/2 or 3/3 high/low, which means two high and four low, or four high and two low, or three high and three low. Winning number groups with these three patterns occur in 81 percent of all drawings.
LOTTERY NUMBER GROUP STRATEGIES
Look at a list of past winning numbers for the Republic of South Africa Lotto game, and you’ll see, more often than not, that one or more of the number groups is not represented. For example, in the combination 5-14-17-32-38-49, there are no 20’s. Tracking and studying Number Groups can help you decide which group to omit and which group to give extra heavy play.
LOTTERY GAMES SKIPPED STRATEGIES
List the number of games skipped (games out) since the last hit (win) for each of the winning numbersduring the last five games. Then mark the number of times each skip occurred. If any skip from 0 to 5 did not occur, play the Lotto numbers that are out that many games. (Help working with lotto games skipped.)
LOTTO NUMBER SUM ADVICE – PLAY A BALANCED GAME®
After you choose six numbers you want to play, add them together and make sure that the sum of the six numbers adds up to somewhere between 122 and 196. Sums that fall within that range will account for over 70 percent of all lottery jackpots won.
REPEAT HITS LOTTERY TIPS
In Republic of South Africa Lotto, on average, one lottery number will be a repeat hit from the last drawing 56 percent of the time.
HOT NUMBER LOTTERY SECRETS
Numbers that have been out (losers) for five games or less account for about half of the winning numbers drawn. Losing numbers that have been out for seven games or less account for about two-thirds of all the winning numbers. Numbers out ten games or less account for about three-quarters of the six winning numbers. This tells us that hot numbers are more likely to hit, but don’t forget to include at least one long shot in your group of 6.
COLD NUMBER LOTTERY SECRETS
It is difficult to know when a cold number will end a long losing streak. If you play a number every drawing because you think it is due, you could be chasing it for many months. (Number 45 in New York Lotto sat out 100 drawings before it finally hit.) Although, when a number has been out for 70 games or so, it might be worth chasing. Use Advantage Gold charts to follow the trends and play cold numbers only when they have the best chance.
