There are various tried and trusted methods of winning the lottery. Unfortunately, not many of them work. There are individuals who claim that lottery winning numbers came to them in a dream. Naturally this is hard to believe but if someone won the lottery, it's easier to give their story the benefit of the doubt than it is to listen to some psychic who says they can predict the future. Of course, Mystic Mary will also answer the inevitable "Why do not you do the lottery yourself" question with the standard "I am not allowed to use my powers for personal gain."

Too Much Effort

Another method is to allow a computer to pick the numbers and trust to luck. You could also go through years of painstaking research which involves breaking into lottery headquarters and measuring the balls and the machine. It is then possible to use the laws of physics to determine the numbers, provided of course you know the speed the lottery machine operates at. The problem with this is that one single millisecond of an error throws off all calculations.

Nothing Is Random

A huge mistake people make is assuming that the lottery is completely and utterly random. In fact, top mathematicians such as Larry Blair believe that there is a predictable system hidden beneath all the complexity. Yet the absolute chaos that one has to wade through when trying to figure out any set patterns is what makes the draw seem random. Blair has won millions on the lottery by winning several large prizes and attributes his success to mathematics. Yet it seems illegally that his solution is foolproof when you consider he has written and sold books about how his system works. One would imagine that if his system was that successful, there would be thousands of lottery winners scooping large prizes and jackpots.
