Free Lotto Tips

New York lottery officials certainly know how to ruin a game. Since September 2001, the game has had a 6/59 number format. It was bad enough that they raised the number field to 59 and the odds to 45,057,474 (22,528,737 at two plays for a dollar), but almost the entire prize pool goes toward paying off the jackpot and the seldom-won second prize of five numbers plus the bonus number. Less than 18 percent of the prize pool goes toward paying off the 3rd, 4th and 5th prize categories. So, it's either win one of the two top prizes, or nothing. To play New York Lotto, choose 6 numbers from 1-59. Drawings are held twice a week, on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Now New Yorkers are further challenged with MEGA Millions' astronomical jackpot odds of one in 259 million and odds of one in 175 million of winning Powerball. The only decent games left in the state are New York Take 5 and New York Pick 10 Keno.

Lotto Extra is a add-on feature added March 3, 2007 to New York's traditional Lotto. For an extra $1 bet you can play Lotto Extra to get more prize levels and better odds of winning more cash prizes, but it is still better to play a lower odds game.

GAIL HOWARD'S FREE STRATEGIES TO HELP YOU WIN New York Lotto 6/59

Here are a few lottery tips on number selection from Gail Howard's lotto strategy book, Lottery Master Guide, which have been customized for this specific game: NY Lotto 6/59. (Additional best tools for this game.)

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 learning how to win New York Lotto with 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 New York Lotto 6/59

ODD-EVEN LOTTO NUMBER TIPS

When you select your New York 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 four 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 84 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 59-number game like New York Lotto, numbers 1 to 30 would be in the low half, and numbers 31 to 59 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 79 percent of all drawings.

LOTTERY NUMBER GROUP STRATEGIES

Look at a list of past winning numbers for the Lotto game you play, 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 138 and 222. Sums that fall within that range will account for over 70 percent of all lottery jackpots won.

REPEAT HITS LOTTERY TIPS

In Lotto 6/59, on average, one lottery number will be a repeat hit from the last drawing 46 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 ten games or less account for 76 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.


Lotto Wheels Improve Lotto Odds

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. For New York Lotto, that means you should wheel less than 34 numbers of the 59 total. Otherwise, you'll be spending MORE money chasing a SMALLER guaranteed prize. You benefit more by wheeling a carefully selected group of lotto 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 the game 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 lottery numbers thoughtlessly or foolishly are destined to lose even before the drawing takes place. By knowing which 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 NY Lotto 6/59, with two drawings a week, a set of 6 numbers has a chance of being drawn once every 433,244 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 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. New York Lotto 6/59 has 59 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.
