1) Avoid Using Quick Pick - Lustig says every time you use the quick-pick method, y

2) Use The Entire Board - Most people use the numbers of birthdays and anniversaries. By doing that, it leaves a bunch of numbers no one plays.

3) Trust Your Gut - Listig says if you feel strongly about a particular set of numbers, stick with them. Even if they are birthdays of loved ones, if you feel that strongly about it, stay with it.

4) Don't Spend More Than You Can Truly Afford, But Spend As Much As You Can Afford - Great advice. Figure out what you can realistically spend on lottery tickets and stay within that budget. Don't spend bill money on lottery tickets hoping to dig yourself out of a financial hole. That being said, the more tickets you buy the more you increase your odds, so buy as many as you can comfortably afford.

5) Understand The Odds - This one sort of goes with the tip above. Sure, if you play 100 tickets your odds are better than if you play 10, but only play as many as you can realistically afford.
