The Do’s and Don’ts of Playing Lottery
It’s true; luck does play its role when it comes to lottery winners. However, there are the dos and don’t of playing the lottery to bear in mind if you want to maximise your chances of winning and avoid any costly mistakes.
So, whether you’re a first-time player or a seasoned pro, don’t get too caught up in the draws before knowing the dos and don’ts of the lottery draw you’re planning on entering.
Let’s start on a positive note with the do’s of playing the lottery:
CHECK LOTTERY DRAWS SPECIAL FEATURES
Checking the unique features is one of the most important do’s when playing the lottery. The Lottery Office offers a range of unique features that can help you boost your chances of winning. For example, the ‘Joker’ is an optional game that can be played alongside La Primitiva. Selecting this option will randomly assign a seven-digit number to you to be used in a raffle with seven fixed prize categories.
Several lottery draws have features that give you more opportunities to win, so make sure you’re aware of them.
There’s no harm in being lucky, but playing smart is the best way to win the lottery. The Lottery Office offers a range of syndicates that can help you play smarter and increase your chances of winning for less cost. We also offer systems that allow you to pick more or fewer numbers than are normally allowed in a lottery. This boost your chances of winning a prize when compared with a standard lotto game.
Now, let’s look at the don’ts of playing the lottery:
DON’T PLAY IF YOU CAN’T AFFORD IT
This may seem like an obvious one, but you’d be surprised how many people play the lottery when they can’t afford it. Also remember that if you can afford to play to always do so within your budget. If you’re not in a position to afford to lose money, then don’t play. The last thing you want is to end up in financial trouble!
DON’T BE RELIANT ON THE LOTTERY AS A SOURCE OF INCOME
If you’re playing the lottery, it should be for fun and not because you’re relying on it as a source of income. The odds of winning will always be stacked against you, so it’s important to remember that the lottery is a game of chance and not a sure thing.
DON’T ADMIT DEFEAT TOO QUICKLY
If you don’t win the first time, don’t give up! The more times you play, the more chances you have of winning. Persistence can be key when playing the lottery, so make sure you keep at it, and who knows, you might be our next big winner!
DON’T FORGET TO ENTER YOUR FAVOURITE LOTTERIES
There are so many different lotteries to choose from these days; it can be easy to forget to enter your favourite ones. Ensure you set reminders for yourself so you don’t miss out on any big draws! If that’s not working for you, check out our multi-play options and enter up to 20 games in advance!
DON’T FORGET TO CHECK RESULTS
This one is important! Always check your results after the draw to see if you’ve won. We can’t stress enough how many people have missed out on life-changing sums of money because they simply forgot to check the draw results.
