If you have any tips on selecting lotto or keno numbers in general or for a specific states game and would like to share them with everyone, please E-Mail them to me. Or if you should have a specific question about a lotto or keno game, send me the question. I will add it to the Hot-Tips page just for your comments, tips, questions, and answers.

When you sit down to make your selections to play try to keep these guide lines in mind. Just by following a few of these tips should help you pinpoint more winning numbers. In doing so will help eliminate numbers or sets of numbers that are not likely to be drawn.

The **SUM** of each of your sets of combinations to play can mean
the difference between *Winning and Losing.*For example : Lets
say one of your sets of numbers to play was ( 3 7 12 23 31 37 ) which
has a sum of 113. While the combination itself doesn't look that bad,
the sum is still just below the average sum of winning numbers that
have been drawn. The average ( SUM ) for a Pick6 Lotto Game is between
121-186. The average ( SUM ) for a Pick5 game is between 63-116.

Another thing to keep in mind is not to play sets of numbers that are all Odd or all Even. Example : You should not play combinations like 3 17 21 37 41 53 - all Odd or 2 8 18 28 34 42 - all Even. While this may happen some time in the future the odds of it happening are quite slim. You want to get all the odds you can in your favor. So try to split up your sets of numbers with say ( 3 ) odd and ( 3 ) even or ( 2 ) even and ( 4 ) odd etc.

As you make your selections its a good idea to include number selections that run consecutively. For instance lets say you have chose the numbers 15 25 and 37. You should also consider selecting a consecutive number either higher or lower as well. A very high percentage of winning selections will have ( 2 ) numbers drawn this way.

When you get ready to select your numbers, it's always a good idea to
have a list of the previous numbers drawn. Scan the drawings to see how
the ** Neighbor** numbers have been doing. For instance the
numbers drawn for New York Lotto54 April 6, 1996 was 1-10-12-29-38-50-43
then on April 10, 1996 the numbers 14-16-30-31-46-53-13 were drawn. If you
look at the drawing you will see that the numbers ( 12 & 29 ) were the key
Neighbor numbers to the very next drawing. The next drawing came in with
( 13 14 30 31 ) thats four numbers out of the seven numbers drawn.

There are a few sets of numbers that you should not play as they a very slim chance of ever being drawn. Consecutive sets of numbers at the beginning and ending of your lotto game should not be played. Example : Your lotto game has ( 35 ) total numbers. Don't play the numbers 1 2 3 4 5 or 31 32 33 34 35. Your lotto game has ( 51 ) total numbers. Don't play the numbers 1 2 3 4 5 6 or 46 47 48 49 50 51. Each week people spend thousands of dollars on sets of numbers just like these.

Another point to remember is that most lotto games have a number range that extends beyond that of the calendar. If you lotto game has ( 49 ) total numbers and your not playing any numbers higher than ( 31 ) you may have to wait a very long time before your numbers come in. One way to over come this problem is to start your number selection at the high end and slowly work down from there.

As amazing as it may seem you Do Not Need hundreds of past drawing in order to pinpoint the winning numbers. At the very most you could use ( 50 ) drawings but you can do very well by using ( 10 ) drawings. Most of the time the numbers to be drawn next will have already appeared in the last ten drawings. If you track the numbers you will probably find that a few of them have been drawn quite often. If you find a few numbers that have been Hot but have Not been drawn for a couple of drawings you should consider them.

Repeating numbers are ones that seem to repeat themselves more frequently than any of the others. You should watch for numbers that have a history of repeating themselves after being drawn. Just by knowing this could mean the difference between cashing a ticket or throwing it into a recycle bin. Lets say the number ( 12 ) has a history of repeating itself after being drawn and that it was just drawn today. You might want to use it as a key number when you wheel your selections.

TIPS for **QuickDraw** the game you can play every five minutes. You
select from ( 1 to 10 ) numbers. The most popular play is for ( 3 to 4 )
numbers. You can make some serious money playing ( 6 ) numbers.
As you know the game is pretty fast so you don't have a lot of time
to be writing the numbers down. Make yourself a chart using squares about
3/4 of an inch. Number them just like the QuickDraw board 1-10 in the first
row 11-20 in the second and so on.
Now that you have a tool to work with you can chart the games. The
first drawing you chart call it ( 1 ) the second ( 2 ) the third ( 3 )
etc. So if the numbers drawn in the first drawing were 12 15 23 34 35 41
43 46 56 57 58 65 66 67 71 72 74 76 78 79 each one of them would have a
number ( 1 ) in the corner of each numbers square. Then the second drawings
numbers were 10 11 12 23 24 25 36 38 39 43 44 55 56 57 66 67 71 72 73 74
each one of these would have a ( 2 ) in their corner. Then game number
three is over and the numbers were 2 7 9 10 14 16 22 23 25 28 32 33 43 45 56
57 63 65 78 79 each one of these would have a ( 3 ) in their corner.
After only three drawings you will find that numbers are repeating and
that certain numbers are always being drawn with these numbers. This is
the pattern that your looking for. Now find three numbers that have been drawn
over 40% of the time. Next find two other numbers that were drawn with these
numbers at least twice. This will give you three sets of three numbers to
play. Then mix set1 with set2 and set2 with set3 and set1 with set3 and this
will give you three sets of six numbers to play.
You can play all these for a cost of $6 dollars a game. You should
play them for at least five games in a row. If you have not broke even or
made a profit after five games you must either stop or re-chart the games
again.

The ** 3 & 4 Digit Daily Numbers** usually run in short term
TRENDS. If a number has not been drawn for ten drawning, it is a Due number.
Include the due numbers in your sets, and after you hit with this number,
stay with it for at least three days.
Another way to pick up a number for your three or four digit set is by
selecting the one that is more apt to repeat. You have two ways that this
can be done. One as above play the due number that was just drawn to repeat.
Use a number that has been drawn more frequently than any of the others.
You can use the day of the month to help you in your number selections
too. If the day of the month is May 3rd, use a ( 3 ) for one of your numbers.
If the day of the month is in the double digits use the last digit for your
number set, for instance, if today was May 24th, you would use the ( 4 )
for your number set.
As you know one digit usually repeats from the previous days drawing.
To help pinpoint the second number find the number that is drawn most often
for the day of the week that your playing. For instance in New York the ( 0 )
is drawn most often on Tuesdays and Fridays. The week of Feb 1-5 had lots
of ( 7 )'s drawn, the ( 4 ) was due and on Friday 2-5-99 the ( 470 ) was drawn
and I had it straight.
Once you've made your selection of two or three numbers, there are
many ways to finish. You could wheel all the rest of the numbers with your
selections. Or you could select the last number by the angles. Usually
two or three of the numbers drawn will be at about a 45 degree angle from
one of the first drawn ones. This angle could of course be up or down. On
April 21, 1996 the numbers 915 and on April 22, 1996 436 was drawn. Notice
on both of these the angle for the last number was upward.
Also if you play the ( Doubles ) 00 11 22 33 44 55 66 77 88 either put
them at the beginning or at the end. They hit around 40% of the time and
usually appear like this ( 877 833 466 ) etc.

Find the average **SUM** for your (3)-Digit Daily numbers game. Then
just find that number under the SUMS heading. If your correct one of
the combinations across from it will be the winning number.
Example: The average sum of your game is ( 13 ) . Then the best numbers
to play are : 049 058 067 139 148 157 166 229 238 247 256 337 346 355 445
You could save a couple dollars by not playing the Doubles or Triples if
they aren't drawn very often in your game.

Keno can be very exciting because every game is a new opportunity for
you to make a fortune, with a small wager. You don't have to carry around
a large bankroll to end up with one. When you play you should keep in mind
the fact that the odds are in favor of the house, casino, or state lottery.
To be a really good keno player you must have patience. Why, because
there can be long periods of little to no payoffs in between the big wins.
Secondly you must chart the numbers before you start playing the game. The
best way to do this is with my **Ultimate Lotto/keno/Quickdraw software.**
You will want to chart about eight to ten games before you start playing
the game.
After you have data for eight to ten games look for the following.

Now using the criteria above select your numbers for play. You might want to select up to eighteen or more numbers. Once your numbers have been selected, you will need a numerical wheeling system, to put them in. Numerical wheeling systems allow you to play more numbers for less money and still give you a chance of hitting the jackpot. My software

If you happen to be in a casino playing Keno, the fastest way to wheel your selected numbers is by playing a ( way ticket ). You mark all the numbers you want to play on the ticket. Then you draw circles around the ones you want grouped together. Example: lets say you circled twelve numbers all together. You could circle three sets of four numbers. If two numbers were drawn from each group you would have a ticket with eight numbers. Using a Way Ticket gives you a lot of leverage for every bet.

First read the machine to see if it will pay you the **JACKPOT** if
you are only using one coin at a time. There are many machines that __will not
pay you the jackpot__, if your only using one coin at a time. If the machine
does not pay a jackpot for one coin, DO NOT PLAY the machine. Search around
and find one that does.

Once you have found a machine that will pay you a jackpot for one coin, start reading the amount of the payouts. Not all machines are created equal. Some of the machines only pay a 200 coins for a jackpot while still others pay 800 coins or more. So, you might as well be playing the slot machine with the highest payout you can get for your coin.

Just for an example: I was playing at Ballys Park Place. I looked over the machines and found a ( 1 ) dollar machine, that payed you $1600 dollars for one coin, if you hit the jackpot. It was named Triple Double Jackpot. I put in ( 10 ) dollars and played one coin at a time and I hit the jackpot. Everyone that came around said congratulations but, you would have got double that amount if you had played two coins. My reply to that was I probably would not have won anything at all.

The machines are operated by a RNG Random Number Generator. If I had been playing two coins at a time, I would have been out of money at the precise time the RNG came up with the jackpot combination. Even if I had put in ( 20 ) dollars instead of ( 10 ) dollars, I probably would have missed the jackpot. Why, because the machines are programmed differently for each coin being played.

Remember the old saying money makes money. The bigger your bankroll is the more potential you have at winning, bigger jackpots. You still must read the machines and play the ones that give you the most bang for the buck.

The PowerBall game has generated record jackpots. The highest one hit $195,000,000 Million dollars, and was won by one man. To start with get the statistical data for the last ( 10 ) cumulative games. Then get statistical data for the last ( 20 ) cumulative games. What you need to know is the percent of time a number was drawn, the number of times it was drawn, and the longest time its went before being drawn. NOTE: If you have my Ultimate Lotto/Keno software getting this information is easy. Once you have this data compare each number from the ten drawns to the twenty drawns. Select numbers that are close to their average drawn point. Select numbers that are fairly hot but have not been drawn for a two, three, or four drawings and thats also the longest they've went without being drawn. Also use numbers that have not been drawn that are either one digit lower or higher than a number that was just drawn. The next most important number the PowerBall number. Using the last twenty drawings. First look to see where numbers are being drawn most often for the first five numbers. Example: The numbers 9-14-25-37 are all drawn about 30% of the time. The numbers on either side of them are drawn 20% of the time. Now go to the PowerBall numbers and locate these same numbers. Only use numbers around these specific numbers that have not been drawn.
