4 Cool hints to win any of the EuroMillions Prizes!

Here are some smart hints and tricks to hit any of the 13 prizes of EuroMillions Lottery.

Prefer a combination of odd and even

Avoid using all even or all odd numbers because that never works. A 3-odd/2-even or a 2-odd/3-even ratio for the 5 normal numbers corresponds to the 68% of the EuroMillions Lottery drawings.

Use a blend of high and low numbers

Never make a mistake of choosing all high or all low numbers. The probability of such a drawing to occur is less than 3%. Prefer to use a blend of high and low numbers. For that divide the 50 numbers into half and you get the first 25 in low category and the next 25 in the high category. Now choose with wit and strategy.

Its good for you to follow 'sum' advice

Once you are done with choosing the 5 normal numbers, add them up and check what the sum amount to. A sum of 95 to 160 for the 5 normal numbers gets a chance of up to 70% of the drawing. Choose carefully to get the sum around this range.

Always pick a digit from the last drawing

Believe it or not, at least one digit from the last drawings will invariably repeat or have a 43% of the chance to repeat without exception! So smart players will always add a digit from the last results. Go through the last results and don’t miss out the prize this time!

5 Don’ts to avoid wasting EuroMillions tickets!

Never make the following mistakes that might waste your ticket. STOP. THINK. CHECK. And then CHOOSE!

Don't use the set already drawn before

Choosing numbers same as already drawn before will be a failed attempt. Do you know that a once drawn set of seven numbers might repeat in 1,344,598 years! So raise your eyebrows and be serious.

Don't choose numbers coming in succession

Avoid being so random in choosing to just end up with consecutive numbers. Not even 4 consecutives show up in a rare chance. Select strategically and come up with a handsome set.

Don't settle for the multiples

One of the reasons people lose the chance of winning any prize is selecting the multiples like 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 or 9, 18, 27, 36, 45. Don’t be that silly.

Don't keep the last digits same

Most of the players try to choose numbers with patterns, for example; the same last digits (14, 44, 24, 34, 4). Keep in mind that this does not works. If you know about probability, then for at least 4 same last digits, the probability is > 2/10 of 1% of the draw.

Don't play calendar numbers

Choosing all 5 normal numbers between 1 and 30 is same as sharing your hot seat with dozens of participants. As mentioned in the tips and tricks above to win a worthy prize, it is wise to use a blend of low and high numbers between 1 and 50.
