# Lottery – The Impossible Dream – Or Is It Really Possible?

What about the lottery? Is the lottery an impossible dream? Or, is it really possible?

Well, the lottery’s different. Winning the lotto has everything to do with luck because, to win it, you have to rely on balls coming out of a machine and matching the numbers that you picked. Those balls come out of the machine randomly and you have no control over that.

There’s no way those self-help gurus can tell you that you can influence what balls come out of the machine, now, don’t you think?

So, you’re probably guessing that the lottery really is an impossible dream. But wait, dozens of people win the lottery every week. Hundreds win it every month. Thousands win it every year. How can it be impossible to when when there are so many new winners every year?

OK, it is possible to win. However, that does not mean that it is probably that YOU will win it. The odds are against you. However, there are things that you could do to increase your chances of winning a big jackpot.

Here’s what you could do to increase your chances of winning – Change the game you play! Consider this – The odds of winning a game like Powerball are approximately 1-in-195-million. If you regularly play Powerball, here’s what would happen to your odds of winning if you played a different game. Say, for example, that you switched from playing Powerball to playing a 649 game. The odds of winning a 649 game are approximately 1-in-14-million. That’s a big difference in odds. How big of a difference? Well, you are about 14 times more likely to win the jackpot on a 649 game than you are of winning Powerball.

Now, your state may not have a 649 game. That doesn’t matter. Just choose any game that your state offers that has odds of winning that are around 1-in-15-million. That type of game will offer a high enough jackpot to change your life, but will be much easier to win than Powerball.

I used Powerball in this example. But the example would also apply to high jackpot games like Mega Millions, Lotto Max, and EuroMillions. Just switch the game you play to one with better odds and it may be possible to win.

Thus, the lottery may or may not be an impossible dream, but that won’t depend on some guru telling you that you could win; it will all depend on what games you choose to play.
