Want to share some tips of your own? Let us know.
TIP #1: PLAY THE RIGHT GAMES
Don't rely just on the overall odds to compare games. Check the odds of hitting specific prizes as prize odds can vary significantly between games, even games of the same ticket price.
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: CHECK INSTANT GAME TICKETS FOR TAMPERING
Players should inspect their instant game tickets to make sure the latex covering on the play area is intact. Do not accept a ticket if any part of the latex has been removed.
TIP #4: PLAN AHEAD
Lottery winners in Maine are not able to remain anonymous. However, lottery winners may be able to claim their winnings using a trust or LLC. Plan ahead and talk to a qualified attorney before making an major claims.
