Lotto 649 has made many commoners millionaires and has turned the lives of many others. It is considered as a non addictive form of gambling. Since the winning numbers are drawn randomly there is no method perfected till date that can predict a set of winning numbers. Players who have been playing for years have, however, devised certain strategies and techniques to improve their odds of winning the mega prizes.
Some common strategies used by players include studying past records and identifying hot and cold numbers. Hot numbers are those numbers that appear more frequently in winning draws and cold numbers are the ones which rarely appear. The best strategy is to identify 14 winning hot numbers and make sets of these numbers and play the game. Another strategy that is commonly used in Europe and North America is the syndicate system. In this system a group of like-minded people get together and play the game using combinations of predetermined numbers. If anyone wins the prize the prize money is distributed evenly amongst the members. This system ensures that your risk is spread and you can bank on others luck as well.
