Most people say that winning the lotto is never going to happen to me, and they are right. It will probably never happen to you either. The cost to have a ticket is small though and many of us are prepared to invest that small amount to have a chance of winning Big Money. Why do people play the Lotto? When asked they say that by winning the lotto they can afford to buy the things they dream about, vacations, cars, homes; all the finer things in life are then within reach.
There are thousands of Lotto games played all over the globe. The numbers differ, 5 balls, 6 balls, 1 or 2 extra balls etc. The rules are basically the same and the games are operated by official state companies or private companies with special rules and often under official supervision. A funny thing is that Lotto is not only forbidden by some states it is also run by that same state. Anyway, in many countries and states the Lotto is a state owned company which has a primary responsibility to promote education and good health facility for the general public.
Let me clearly state that Lotto Is A Game Of Chance. If you have one ticket in a Lotto your chances, depending on which Lotto it is, is something between 1 to 5-15 millions. Not very much, but every ticket has the same chance of winning the Jackpot. A look at the odds of winning lotto - in any of its various forms - reveals low probability but high returns if you do. An accurate figure of your chances of winning a 6/49 Lotto Jackpot is 13 983 816 to 1. But your chances of winning any price is better, often something like 50 to 1.
If you are interested in doing your own research on lotto numbers or keno numbers, there is software to help you analyse almost any Lotto game. Cracking the Lotto is the latest software that people are using to play the lottery. Another tool is Expert Lotto, a universal lottery tool which can improve your chances to win. But most persons trust blind luck to pick the winning numbers.


Most people know a syndicate gives you a much better chance of winning. Playing in a syndicate increases your chances of a win and in general you win more often. If you for example play all the numbers of an extra ball in a lottery, by yourself or together with other persons, you will always have one ball with the right number. So if there are 6 balls in the game, you will need to rely on Luck for only 5 balls. That is the basic reason for many to join different kind of syndicates. Many companies have made it a business to set up and run syndicates. One good reason to join is the simple fact that you can not drop or misplace your ticket. It is always checked and covered by the company.
Florida Lotto and Mega Millions Lotto are two of America's biggest Lotto jackpot games. In Europe the UK National and EuroMillions Lotto are two of the biggest. Generally one can say that the US based games have bigger wins but they generally pay less up front. And you have to pay taxes on your winnings. The UK National Lotto and EuroMillions Lotto are two of the richest, lump-sum, tax-free lotteries in the world.
