EuroMillions Winning Tips
EuroMillions (Euro Millions, Euro Millones) is the world's first international multi-country lottery game. It's Europe's biggest-ever, rolling jackpot lottery game. EuroMillions was launched by France, Spain and the United Kingdom with its first drawing on February 13, 2004. The game is currently available to players in Austria, Belgium, France, Ireland, Luxembourg, Portugal, Spain, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom. A Euro Millions player must be a permanent resident in a member country in order to purchase a ticket in the country and in order to collect a prize.
NEWS: As of September 24, 2016, EuroMillions has added another number to the Lucky Stars pool, so this is now a 5/50 + 2/12 game.
EuroMillions is a Powerball-type lotto game in that numbers are chosen from two different number fields. Five numbers are chosen from 1 to 50; and two numbers (Lucky Stars) are chosen from 1 to 12. There are twelve prize categories which means 12 ways to win Euromillions lotto. To beat the odds of one in 139,838,160 (up from one in 116,531,800 previously) and win the EuroMillions (EuroMillones) jackpot, you must have all seven winning numbers correct. With rollovers, jackpots are expected to top £ 50 million. Tickets in the UK now cost £ 2.50. Drawings are now held twice a week on Tuesday and Friday.
The five balls that are chosen from 50 are claret colored, which we will refer to here as the Red Balls. The twelce balls from which two are chosen are golden colored "Lucky Star" balls.
In spite of the fact that the high odds of the game make your chances of winning Euro Millions are low, there are several things you can do to play the game smarter.
How to WIN Euro Millions
Below are a few lotto tips to help you pick euro millions winning combinations, but Gail Howard's book, Lottery Master Guide, explains all of her successful methods of number selection in great detail with examples of patterns shown throughout.
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 lottery 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 lotto ticket 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 the EuroMillions Lotto Game
PLAY A MIX OF ODD AND EVEN LOTTO NUMBERS
Choose the best Euro Millions Lotto numbers with a fairly even mix of odd and even numbers. All odd numbers or all even numbers are drawn less than 3% of the time. The best mix is to have 3/2 or 2/3 which means three odd and two even, or two odd and three even. One of these two patterns will occur in 68 percent of Euro Millions lotto drawings.
PLAY A MIX OF HIGH AND LOW LOTTO NUMBERS
Winning numbers are usually spread across the entire number field. Cut a number field in half to get the low half and the high half. In a 50-number game like EuroMillions, numbers 1 to 25 would be in the low half, and numbers 26 to 50 would be in the high half. All high numbers or all low numbers are rarely drawn, occurring only 3 percent of the time. A mix of 3 high/2 low or 2 high/3 low occurs 68% of the time, so this is a good bet.
OMIT ONE LOTTERY NUMBER GROUP
Look at a list of past winning lottery numbers in the Euromillions results, and you'll see, that usually one or more of the number groups is not included. For example, in the combination 5-8-14-17-32, 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.
PLAY NUMBERS WITH A RECENTLY RARE GAMES OUT VALUE
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 five numbers you want to play, add them together and make sure that the sum of the five numbers adds up to somewhere between 95 and 160. Sums that fall within that range will account for over 70 percent of all the 5-number sets of winning EuroMillions Red Balls.
CONSIDER INCLUDING ONE NUMBER FROM THE LAST DRAWING
In EuroMillions results, on average, one lottery number will be a repeat hit from the last drawing every other drawing or 43 percent of the time.
PLAY HOT NUMBERS THAT HAVE A LOW GAMES OUT VALUE
Numbers that have been out (losers) for six games or less account for about half of the winning numbers. Losing numbers that have been out for 12 games or less account for about three-quarters 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 5.
DON'T USUALLY INCLUDE A LONGSHOT NUMBER
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 109 Lotto jackpots won with Smart Luck 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 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.
USE BALANCED WHEEL® SYSTEMS
Balanced Wheeling® Systems allow you to bet a large group of numbers (more than 5), 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. To beat the odds of winning Euro Millions, your best chance to win is by wheeling less than about 30 of the 50 total numbers. 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 Gail Howard's lotto book, Lottery Master Guide.
Most of Smart Luck'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 our lottery winners, too. And when you win a jackpot with Smart Luck 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, we will honor that.
HOW TO CHOOSE THE BEST EURO MILLIONS NUMBERS
Treat EuroMillions as two separate lotteries. One is a pick-5 from 50 numbers; the other is a pick-2 from 12 numbers. Advantage Gold software tracks the histories of the Red Balls and the Lucky Star balls in two separate files, which treats them like two separate drawings, each having its own set of charts to make it easy to strategize.
Wheel the Red Balls using the Balanced Wheels® in the Wheel Five Gold software or the book, Lotto Winning Wheels for Powerball & MEGA Millions. After a few Euromillions drawings, include in your wheel all the virgin numbers that are yet to be drawn until they have all had at least one win. To give you immediate access to wheeling systems, you can use the FREE pick-5 multiple-jackpot winning Balanced Wheels for the Red Balls.
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 the weekly EuroMillions drawing, a set of five numbers plus the two Luck Star balls has a chance of being drawn once every 1,344,598 years!!! This should also answer the question we are so often asked, "Shouldn't I keep playing the same set of numbers every week because they are due to hit sometime?"
AVOID BETTING FIVE CONSECUTIVE NUMBERS
Even four 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 five numbers from one number group, such as all single digits, or all teens, or all 20's, etc. All five winning numbers drawn from one group is highly unlikely.
AVOID THE COMBINATION 1-2-3-4-5
The most popular set of numbers most often played is: 1-2-3-4-5. 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 and 7-14-21-28-35.
AVOID ALL SAME LAST DIGITS
Many people like to play same last digits, such as 3-13-23-33, 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 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. EuroMillions has 50 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 we recommend 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.
