How To Try And Boost Your Irish Lotto Chances
Last Updated: Friday 11th August 2017, 10:05 am
The Irish Lotto jackpot for Saturday night will stand at a mighty €7 million, having been rolling over since a lucky winner from Co. Cavan pocketed €6.4 million on Wednesday 5th July, and players across Ireland will be considering whether there are any strategies to try and increase their chances of winning.
While many fans of the game will choose to stick to their favourite numbers or opt for a Quick Pick, another option could be to look at the Irish Lotto Statistics page. You can find out which numbers have been drawn most frequently, which numbers are the most overdue and which numbers are drawn together most regularly as pairs or triplets. However, it is worth remembering that the odds are the same for all combinations, regardless of whether certain numbers have been hot or cold in the past.
The only way to truly boost your chances of winning is to buy more tickets but, to keep costs down, you could try teaming up with friends or work colleagues in an Irish Lotto syndicate. You would have to split the winnings, of course, but you would have a share in more entries and then be able to enjoy any success together.
Another tactic is to try and choose numbers which are not selected by other players. Many participants like to use significant dates such as birthdays, but this limits you to numbers between 1 and 31 and it is more likely you would have to share any big prize you win. You should also avoid using patterns for a similar reason, as it is likely that particular sequences such as multiples of seven might be picked by lots of players and everyone would be left with a smaller prize if the numbers did appear.
If you want to play with a random selection, you could test out the Irish Lotto Number Generator. A Quick Pick has the same effect, but the Number Generator allows you to keep creating new lines until you are happy with your selection.
Regardless of how you choose to play, it promises to be another exciting draw with such a big jackpot up for grabs. You can choose numbers online or go to any authorised retailer to put yourself in with a chance of winning. Good luck!
