How to pick your Mega Millions numbers

I’m taking a break from tradition here and i’m going to tell you exactly which method I use to pick my Mega Millions lottery numbers.  Please note however this is not a typical nor recommended method and in no way guarantees you a chance of winning…i’m simply sharing my own method (which works for me, i’ve won over $15,000 in the last 2 months).

I call it the SimpleMath Method

Pick 1
The first five numbers on the card should be between 1 and 56. To pick the first lottery number, combine the number of the month and date of your date of birth. EG: if you were born on 12/8, your number would be 12 + 8 = 20 (simple!)

Pick 2
For your second lotto card number, choose your age. If you are over 56, subtract your age from 120 (a good luck age)

Pick 3 & Pick 4
The third and fourth ticket numbers are any two of these numbers: 9, 19, 29, 39. If you look at archives of past results, many winning combination’s contain these numbers.

Pick 5
To choose your fifth number for your Mega Millions lotto ticket, subtract the second number from 56.

Pick 6
The last number to pick is the Mega Ball, a number between 1 and 46. Numbers between 40 and 46 have often been the winning Mega Ball number, so choose your favorite number between 40 and 46.
