What are some tips for playing the DC Lottery?

Our experts pulled together some tips to help you play the DC Lottery.

Got any tips of your own? Let us know.

TIP #1: 2ND CHANCE DRAWINGS

When playing a game with a Second Chance Drawing, always make sure to enter your ticket. Its a free bonus chance to win.

TIP #2: EQUAL CHANCES OF HITTING

Every ball in a draw style game has an equal chance of being chosen. There is no software that can predict the exact winning numbers. You can increase your chance of not splitting a jackpot if you select numbers that are not as commonly picked.

TIP #3: DON'T BUY WINNING TICKETS OR CASH FOR A FEE

Only buy lottery tickets from authorized lottery retailers. If you are approached by someone offering to sell a "winning ticket" or asking you to claim it for them (for a fee), refuse the offer. Not only could it be a scam but it could land you in legal trouble.

TIP #4: PLAN AHEAD

Lottery winners in the District of Columbia are considered public record so you cannot remain anonymous. Plan ahead since people will find out your identity and how much you won.
