What are some tips for playing the Iowa Lottery?
We’ve pulled together some tips to help you play the Iowa Lottery.
Got any additional tips? Let us know.
TIP #1: DOUBLE CHECK TICKETS
Its always a good practice to not only visually check your tickets but to also scan them for winners. Mistakes happen and winning tickets get thrown out all the time.
TIP #2: USE THE ENTIRE DRAWING PLAY SLIP
When playing draw games with a large selection of numbers, select numbers from the entire play slip. Players often only play birthdays or anniversaries. Doing this limits your numbers to just 1 to 31 instead of using the whole play slip.
TIP #3: BE WEARY OF LOTTERY GUARANTEES
If any lottery “system” or person guarantees you a lottery win, RUN. We have yet to find a reliable and consistent method for winning draw games.
TIP #4: PLAN AHEAD
Lottery winners in the State of Iowa are considered public record so you cannot remain anonymous. Plan ahead since people will find out your identity and how much you won.
