Why has my lotto ticket lost?

We’ve all found ourselves asking the question: “Why has my lottery ticket lost again?” Whilst we can’t provide you with an exact answer, we can offer you a few pearls of advice on the matter. Hopefully these thoughts will help you enjoy your lottery gaming more – and they might even help you win more too!

You could be entering the wrong lottery

If you’re not winning enough lottery prizes to keep the game fun and rewarding, it may be time to start looking at some of the different lotteries that are available to players worldwide through online lottery sites.

Depending on the site you’re using, you can get involved in any of a huge array of draws, including the European multinationals EuroMillions and EuroJackpot, and America’s world record breaking games MegaMillions and Powerball. Which lottery you should choose to play is all down to which you value most highly: the biggest prizes or the best odds. American draws generally provide the former; European draws, the latter.

These things take time

Immediate big-money pay-offs are exceptionally rare in lottery games; so much so that players hitting the jackpot on their first try almost always makes the national news headlines. Bear this in mind when you’re playing – good things come to those who wait!

You might need to change the way you’re thinking about lotto

If you’re feeling really upset about losing at lotto, it may be time to re-evaluate why you’re playing the game in the first place. Above all, lotteries should be great fun – tense and exciting but never upsetting. You can’t play lotto with the attitude that you’re counting on winning the jackpot sometime in the near future, but you can certainly count on the fact that there’s always a possibility that the unbelievable could become a reality.

You need to be consistent

Consistently playing the same lottery numbers won’t make you any likelier to win, but it will protect you against the horrible fate that befalls some unlucky lottery players; watching your lucky numbers getting called the one week you forget to play them!
