Tips & Tricks For Increasing Your Odds:
The best way to increase your odds is to buy group game tickets, It’s pure logic & math. When you buy group game tickets you essentially ‘pool together’ your tickets and therefore increase your odds immensely.
For example: If you wanted to buy a single ticket for a Saturday Australian Lotto draw it will cost you around $1.50 AUD offline, and anywhere up to $4 AUD per ticket online. With a group game option you buy shares in a group of tickets online. 50 tickets could make up one group (groups can be anywhere from 30-100 tickets grouped together). This group of 50 tickets is then split into 100 shares and each share can be sold separately, this way the player can buy a share in a group of 50 tickets for a prices much cheaper, as little as €0.19 per ticket. If one of the group’s ticket is a winner then the winning amount will be split according to how many shares you have in the group.
So, if we have a group of 50 tickets, split into 100 shares and you buy 10 shares in the group, you own 10% of the group of 50 tickets. This means if the group of tickets has a winner in it, say $100,000.00 AUD you would receive 10% of this total, meaning you would win $10,000.00 AUD
