About FL Lotto Game

Free Lotto Tips

Florida Lotto 6/53 is a pick-6 Lotto game with high jackpot odds of one in 22,957,480. (Florida Fantasy 5 is a much better bet.) Florida Lotto began in 1988 as a 6/49 game and has been using the new 6/53 format since October 27, 1999. You choose six numbers from 1 to 53 to play and there are no bonus or powerball numbers drawn in this game. Drawings are held twice a week, on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

The jackpot starts at $3 million and is split for multiple winners, or rolls over if there is no winner. Florida Lotto also began a new option for the game called Florida Lotto Plus in which you can raise your bet from the Classic Lotto $1 per ticket up to $2 or $3 per ticket. The increased bet will give you a higher jackpot. A $2 bet wins you an additional $10 million to whatever the jackpot prize is, and a $3 bet wins you $25 million in addition to the jackpot. Five winning numbers pays a generous $5,000 on average.

Florida Lotto 6/53 has five ball sets, which are tracked in the Advantage Plus software. Of course, we never know before the drawing which ball set will be used. Ball sets are replaced every four years.

Florida Lotto Jackpot History

The largest Florida Lotto jackpot was $106.5 million on September 15, 1990 which was split by 5 winners. The largest single ticket won $81.6 million on March 29, 2000.

GAIL HOWARD'S LOTTERY STRATEGIES TO HELP YOU WIN Florida Lotto

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 190 different lotto games worldwide, with histories going back as far as 1955, Gail Howard has verified the following incredibly simple rule:

That which is MOST POSSIBLE happens MOST OFTEN.
That which is LEAST POSSIBLE happens LEAST OFTEN.

The key to Gail Howard'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 Florida Lotto 6/53

ODD-EVEN LOTTO NUMBER TIPS

When you select your FL 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 only one percent of the time. The best mix is to have 2/4, 4/2 or 3/3, 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 80 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 53-number game like Florida Lotto, numbers 1 to 27 would be in the low half, and numbers 28 to 53 would be in the high half. All high numbers or all low numbers are rarely drawn, occurring only two percent of the time. The best mix is to have 2/4, 4/2 or 3/3, 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 lottery numbers for Florida Lotto, and you'll see, more often than not, that one or more of the number groups is not represented. For example, in the combination 5-14-17-32-38-46, 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 numbers during 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 124 and 200. Sums that fall within that range will account for over 70 percent of all lottery jackpots won.

REPEAT HITS LOTTERY TIPS

In FL Lotto 6/53, on average, one lottery number will be a repeat hit from the last drawing 53 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 in FL Lotto. Losing numbers that have been out ten games or less account for 75 percent of all the 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.

Lottery Pools and Lottery Syndicates

POOL YOUR WAY TO LOTTO RICHES

Several of the 107 Lotto jackpots won with Gail Howard's lottery systems were won by groups of people who pooled their money. Sharing the ticket cost with others stretches your Lotto budget. By playing with a group, you can afford to buy more lottery tickets—and play larger wheeling systems—than you could (or should) by yourself. Draw up an agreement and have the members of your pool sign it.

How to Get Lucky in Florida Lotto

CASH IN ON THE LUCK OF OTHERS

When you form a Lotto pool, your group is also pooling its aggregate luck. A jackpot could happen because of the luck just one member brings to your pool. Select your partners carefully. Share your luck with winners, not losers. Avoid negative people. Not only are they unlucky, but they dampen enthusiasm and drain energy from others. You want to enhance your own luck, not dilute its strength. One quick way to tell winners from losers is simply to ask them: "Do you think you are a lucky person?" Many people quickly admit, "I'm unlucky. I never win anything." They won't bring good luck to your group either.

CASH IN ON A POSITIVE ATTITUDE

No one should play games of chance out of desperation because they need the winnings. The needy have a greater fear of losing the hard-earned money they gamble with. It is just one of life's dirty tricks that the very fear of losing blocks the winning forces. Thoughts are charged with energy, especially when triggered by emotion. Fear attracts exactly that which one fears. A strong desire for a goal that is charged with positive energy, attracts a positive response, especially when every effort is made to attain that goal.


Buy Guaranteed Lotto Prizes with Wheels

Wheel Six Gold

After you choose the best numbers with number strategies, you can improve your odds of winning larger prizes by using lotto wheeling systems. It's simple, easy as A-B-C to wheel pick-6 lotto numbers using the Balanced Wheels in the Wheel Six Gold lottery software. You get a minimum win guarantee with every wheel!

Lottery Wheels

USE BALANCED WHEEL® SYSTEMS

Balanced Wheel® Systems allow you to bet a large group of numbers (more than 6), play scientific combinations of that group of numbers, and get a specific minimum win guarantee. Balanced Wheels® force all the winning numbers that are in your group to come together to give you at least one prize if some or all of the winning numbers are in your chosen group.

It's true that the more numbers you wheel, the easier it is to trap the winning numbers in your chosen group. But to get the most leverage for your money, the optimum number of numbers to wheel is not more than four or five numbers over HALF the numbers in your game, which for Florida Lotto, means you shouldn't wheel more than about 32 numbers. Otherwise, you'll be spending MORE money chasing a SMALLER guaranteed prize. You benefit more by wheeling a carefully selected group of numbers.

THE BEST WAY TO WHEEL ALL THE LOTTO NUMBERS IN YOUR GAME

Any one wheeling system that covers ALL the numbers in the game is too spread out, making the win guarantee not worth the wager. There are smart ways to wheel all the numbers in Florida Lotto by using Trap-by-Overlap and other wheeling strategies covered on pages 137 to 142 in the Lottery Master Guide.

Most of Gail Howard's lottery winners used a Balanced Wheel® in addition to her Smart Luck® number selection methods. You can use a FREE interactive Balanced Wheel® System that won multiple jackpots. Read about Gail Howard's lottery winners, too. And when you win a jackpot with Gail Howard's lotto systems, tell us about it so you can be added to Gail Howard's growing list of winners. If you don't want your name publicized, Gail Howard will honor that.

Save Money by Knowing Lotto Numbers to Avoid

Lotto players who select their numbers thoughtlessly or foolishly are destined to lose even before the drawing takes place. By knowing which Florida Lotto number combinations and patterns to avoid, you'll have an advantage over such players—and save money, too.

AVOID NUMBER COMBINATIONS THAT HAVE BEEN DRAWN BEFORE

Many players like to bet the numbers that have won someone else a big jackpot, and by doing so, they are almost guaranteed NOT to win one themselves. In FL Lotto 6/53, with two drawings a week, a set of 6 numbers has a chance of being drawn once every 220,745 years!!! This should also answer the question Gail Howard is so often asked, "Shouldn't I keep playing the same set of numbers every week because they are due to hit sometime?"

AVOID BETTING SIX CONSECUTIVE LOTTO NUMBERS

Six consecutive numbers have never been drawn in any state or international lotto game. Gail Howard has all the drawing results for more than 190 state and international lottery games, going back more than fifty years! Even five consecutive numbers is a very rare occurrence that, in most Lotto games, has never happened once.

AVOID BETTING ONE LOTTO NUMBER GROUP

Never choose all six lotto numbers on a ticket from one number group, such as all single digits, or all teens, or all 20's, etc. All six winning numbers drawn from one group is highly unlikely, especially when there are many number groups like there are in FL Lotto with 53 total numbers.

AVOID THE LOTTO COMBINATION 1-2-3-4-5-6

The most popular set of numbers most often played is: 1-2-3-4-5-6. Thousands of tickets are bought with this combination every drawing. The selection is too far out of balance to come up in a random drawing.

AVOID PATTERN BETTING

Pattern betting is an even more popular method of marking bet slips. Patterns of numbers marked in a row to make a straight line, either across the bet slip vertically or diagonally get heavy play—which means sharing the prize with others if the numbers are drawn as winners. Other designs such as patterns of initials or numbers or crosses also get heavy play.

AVOID NUMBER MULTIPLES

Other popular combinations that get heavy play are the number multiples, especially 5-10-15-20-25-30 and 7-14-21-28-35-42.

AVOID ALL SAME LAST DIGITS

Many people like to play same last digits, such as 3-13-23-33-43, or all digits that end in seven, or some other favorite lucky lottery number. Even four same last digits occur in less than two-tenths of one percent of all drawings. Winning sets of numbers with three last digits the same occur in less than 3 percent of all drawings. Winning sets of numbers with no more than one repeated last digit represent nearly 90 percent of all drawings.

AVOID LOW NUMBER COMBINATIONS

The majority of Lotto players like to play the calendar numbers, such as birth dates and anniversaries—and their children's ages. This means that the most heavily played numbers are 1 through 31. Lotto 6/53 has 53 numbers. If you play only the calendar numbers, you might be sharing your jackpot with dozens of other winners. It's not to say that you shouldn't play your personal numbers if you feel these lucky numbers are good to play. But Gail Howard recommends that you include a couple of high numbers so that just in case your numbers do hit, you win a prize that's worth something.

NIX LOTTO QUICK PICKS

Quick Picks are used by lazy people who want to be in the action without putting any effort into winning. When you read articles about jackpot winners, it appears as though they all used either Quick Picks, birth dates, or their children's ages. The vast majority of people do play that way. If the majority of tickets sold are Quick Picks, then it makes sense that the majority of jackpots won should be won with Quick Picks. However, when you see the actual statistics, as Gail Howard did, you'll find that you have a better chance of winning by picking numbers randomly out of a hat than by using Quick Picks.

In Lotto, the Trend is Your Friend

The shortest, easiest way to search for Lotto numbers that have the greatest probability of winning is to track the trends. Gail Howard's Smart Luck strategies show you how to understand and use historical data.
