4 Steps to Winning the Lottery

Without a doubt, this website is full of lucky numbers and lucky combinations.

Millions of dollars have been won with lotteries.

However, in order for you to be lucky with your numbers and lotteries, you must match the following 4 criteria.

You must have:

  1. A valid ticket.
  2. The proper draw date.
  3. The proper lottery.
  4. The right combination of numbers for a draw for either a grand prize, or a lesser prize.

A Valid Ticket

To purchase a valid ticket, you only need the cost of a lottery ticket, and a place to purchase your ticket.

You must also be legal age to play.

You will need to find a lottery ticket reseller, or even purchase the ticket online and you are good to go with a valid ticket.

A valid ticket also means it is not expired, or has not been cancelled by the purchaser or reseller, or has not been lost.

It must also meet the validation requirements when the ticket is presented for claiming your prize.

The Proper Draw Date

Although some lotteries allow you to buy tickets in advance (with multiple draws option or by subscription), when you purchase a lottery ticket, it is usually for the upcoming draw for that particular lottery.

Keep in mind, some lotteries have more than one draw per week. Some are even daily.

The Proper Lottery

This may be obvious, but it is here to cover you basics.

Many lottery resellers sell lottery tickets for more than one lottery. When you purchase your ticket, make sure you are purchasing it for the lottery you want to play. Some lotteries sound very similar, for example in Canada there is Western 649, Atlantic 49, Ontario 49, Quebec 49, BC49 or just Lotto 649. Similar to Western Max, Quebec MAX and Lotto MAX.

The Right Combination of Numbers

The first 3 steps are very easy to do. In fact, every time you purchase a lottery ticket, you are performing steps 1 to 3 without even thinking. It is step 4, which is the dream-maker step.

The final step, choosing the right combination of numbers...well, that's where lady luck plays a huge roll. In fact, that's where lady luck plays the only roll. It is out of your hands and out of your control.

This website has, mind you one day delayed, steps 2, 3 and 4 from above 4 steps, but unfortunately, not step 1 - a valid ticket. Wouldn't it be nice to have 20/20 hindsight?
