- Odd-Even Numbers Tips
While selecting your lotto numbers, try to keep a mix of odd and even numbers. The possibility of drawing all the odd numbers or all the even numbers is very less.

The numbers that have the possibility of winning are spread all across the field of numbers. In a game of 60 numbers, 1-30 becomes the lower half, and 31-60 becomes the higher half. It is not preferable to choose all low or all high numbers as their drawing chances are only 2%. The best mix is to have 4/2, 2/4, or 3/3 numbers, where the first number resembles high, and the second one resembles low. These patterns have a 79% chance of being drawn.
