Apparently There Is a Way to Trick the Lottery

If you’ve been following the lotto world long enough, you probably already know everything about the Carolina Pick 3 daily drawings in North Carolina that sometimes has thousands of winners per draw. And if you don’t, that example could be a good learning story for everybody who wishes there is a way to trick the lottery.

The Learning Example To Help You Trick the Lottery

Every so often there is a story about thousands of North Carolinians winning money at the local lottery in the news. The thing that makes it distinctive (and interesting to all of the avid lotto players) is the fact that there are sometimes thousands of winners per draw.

Just recently the lottery officials announced that nearly 10,000 people are going to split the amount of 3.6 million dollars after guessing the right 0-0-0 combination in their popular Pick 3 game. The game is as simple as it sounds: players pick three random digits, and the combinations of the three same numbers, popularly called “trips”, are the most popular in the game.

How Is This Even Possible?

The odds of matching all three numbers are 1 in 1000, so it’s no wonder 9307 tickets with the winning combo were purchased this time. The top prize in Carolina Pick 3 is $250 for a 50-cent ticket and $500 for a one dollar ticket.

And as mentioned, this isn’t such a rare occasion in the Carolina lottery: a few months ago almost 8000 people won prizes for guessing the devilish 6-6-6 combination. So basically every time that “trips” are drawn, a huge amount of people win money.

So, what can you learn from this? Is there a way to trick the lottery after all? Well, not quite, but kind of. If by “tricking” you mean using every trick in the book to win the lottery, then yes. And we are going to list some of those “tricks” now.

Secret Lessons

First of all, the Carolina Pick 3 teaches us that we should pick the game with the best odds for winning. Just think about it: almost 10,000 just won prizes in one draw, simply because the odds for them winning was really good. Don’t dismiss the small lotteries either: they are often the ones with better odds, and it’s better to have higher chances of winning a bit smaller amount than the other way around, don’t you think?

Secondly, think about using the most frequent numbers (quick disclaimer for the unknowing: you can find the most drawn numbers for many lotteries online, and they should be your no. 1 pick). Sure, that also means you’ll probably have to split your prize because many other people also use them, but again, you’ll have to admit it’s better to win something than nothing.

Lastly, choose a game with frequent draws, or play many different games: the more you play, your chances for winning rise proportionally.
