Top 5 Random Ways Some Lottery Winners Come up With their Winning Numbers

Updated on June 27, 2012

Don't we all dream of winning big with the lottery? With the recent frenzy over the last Mega Millions it makes you wonder if the winners actually personally picked their lottery numbers or if they let the machines do it for them. Either way paying $1-$10 for a lottery ticket and picking "random numbers" to win millions of dollars is the ultimate way to shop clearance and win big in my opinion!

I am a very curious person by nature and I have often wondered how people come up with their winning numbers. Although some people do not win the whole jackpot, sometimes they win a hefty portion of the jackpot by matching some of the numbers. Here are a few ways some winners have chosen their winning lottery numbers.

Randomly Choose Numbers

1. Randomly choosing your lottery numbers is considered the best way to choose winning lottery numbers. Some believe your chances are better if you randomly choose the numbers off the top of your head. Choosing your favorite numbers or just numbers at random couldn't hurt. It especially wouldn't hurt if they turned out to be the jackpot winning numbers.


2. Quickpicks are randomly automated numbers that are picked by a machine. They usually pick up to 10 random combinations of numbers and tell you which number combination is balanced based on lottery winning numbers that have been chosen before. A lot of people don't believe in quickpicks because they say your chances of winning are slim to none and they never work. Well, I bet the numerous people who have actually won millions of dollars by choosing to use the quickpick generators would beg to differ! After all, you are taking a chance so to me it would be just like picking random numbers off the top of your head.

Using Birthdays

3. This may seem a bit odd to some people but there are actually people who win the lottery by playing their family members birthdays. I would assume that those are some very special birthdays if they all generate numbers that win millions of dollars. But I guess you would have to balance out the birthday numbers seeing that the most days you have in one month is 31 and some lottery games number choices go way beyond the number 31.


4. Believe it or not, some people pick their lottery numbers from their dreams. Some people have had recurring dreams about a set of numbers and think of it as divine intervention. Some people actually keep a notebook and a pencil/pen by their beds at night so they can immediately write down numbers that they dream about. I guess it wouldn't hurt to try playing those numbers if the least it costs to buy a lottery ticket is $1. I don't see anything wrong with it as long as you don't become obsessed with dreaming about lottery numbers.

5. Did you know that people actually consult psychics for winning lottery numbers? Although oftentimes this strategy does not work more than it does (because if it did I would assume that every psychic on the face of the planet would have won the lottery), people actually pay psychics to help them with winning lottery numbers. Don't get me wrong, psychics can be very helpful but is it possible for them to be 100% correct 100% of the time? In my opinion, you're out of more money calling the psychic by the minute than you are just by buying a $1 ticket and picking the numbers at random.
