Product Information

Intro to Advantage Gold

If you're looking for a way to pick the best lotto numbers to win your lottery game, Advantage Gold is the solution. This program uses lotto history, which we provide for hundreds of games around the world, in order to help you find out which numbers have a good chance of hitting in the next drawing and which numbers to avoid. You can use the program's Smart Picks for a fast and easy method, or use any of the charts to look for patterns and choose the numbers yourself.

For best results, use Advantage Gold to choose about half the numbers in your game, and then use a wheel (like those in the Wheel Gold programs) to give you sets of tickets to buy that will guarantee you'll win a specific minimum prize. There are no guarantees without using a wheel.

Getting the Most Out of Lottery Software

Advantage Gold™ helps you learn many facts about the lottery numbers for your game so you can play smarter and choose the lottery numbers with the best chance of winning. With Advantage Gold™, you can:
  • Spot a Hot Number just BEFORE it gets hot - so you can be on it when it STARTS its winning streak.
  • Know when to play--or when not to play - specific lotto numbers for each drawing.
  • Tell which "cold" number is best to play. (No, it is NOT the number out the longest!)
  • Save money by being able to tell when a number is about to start a long losing streak BEFORE it loses 15 or 20 games or more.
  • Eliminate one-quarter to one-fifth of the lotto numbers in your lottery game, and turn a 49-number Lotto into a 39-NUMBER game.
  • Follow certain easy rules to know how many cold, lukewarm or hot numbers to include on your tickets.
  • Cash in on the most predictable indicator - the balancing Bias Tracker®.
  • Know which of last game's WINNERS have the best chance of winning again the next drawing.
  • Know which of last game's LOSING numbers have the best chance of winning the next drawing.
  • Spot at a glance which numbers are hot and which are not.
  • Avoid buying lotto tickets that are guaranteed to lose.

For best results, strategize with Advantage Gold™ to choose a larger group of numbers (about half the numbers in your game's number field is a good range), and then use one of the Smart Luck Balanced Wheel® programs (no wheels are included in Advantage Gold™) or free lotto wheels to produce a set of combinations. Play every combination the wheel produces, and you have a much greater chance of hitting the winning jackpot! See more about wheeling.
