Instant Win Lottery Games - How to Increase Your Odds of Winning
I'm talking about people that have won big jackpots on instant-win lottery games.
The odds of winning any lottery game are bad and that includes the instant scratch-off games too.
But there is a way to increase your odds of winning.
Read on to find out how.
This article isn't about tips or tricks for picking a winning lottery ticket.
Rather, it's about math - the mathematics of odds.
So here's the simple way to increase your odds of winning instant-win lottery games - Buy more tickets.
OK, I know what you're thinking - Everybody knows that.
But does everybody know how much it actually increases your odds of winning? Probably not.
I will use an example to show you how buying more tickets betters your chances of winning a scratch-lottery jackpot.
New York Lottery has an instant win game called $1,000,000 Cash Blast.
It costs $5 to play and the odds of winning the $1 million jackpot in the game are approximately 1-in-2.
If, instead of buying just one ticket, you buy two, your odds would get much better - 1-in-1.
Going even further, if you were to buy, say, 10 tickets, your odds of winning would then be 1-in-265-thousand.
Do you see how buying more tickets betters your odds? All you have to do to calculate the odds of winning is to take the starting odds of whichever instant-win lottery game you like to play and divide it by the number of tickets you buy and that would be your odds of winning.
Now, I'm not trying to get you to spend more money on lotteries because that would be foolish; in the long run, you'd be virtually guaranteed to lose money.
I just wanted to show you how quickly odds can change when you buy more tickets.
