Looking for Some Expert Tips on Playing the NJ Lottery?

We love to share tips to make lotto players more informed.

Got any tips of your own? Let us know.


Don’t choose consecutive numbers. For example, if you play a lottery with five winning numbers, and you must choose numbers 1-55. The total numbers should fall between 104 and 176. Studies have shown that 70% of lottery jackpots have sums that fall in this range.


Players tend to play based on their birthday, the birthday of a family member or an anniversary. This limits selecting numbers to just 1 to 31. If you choose numbers above 31, you can increase your chance of not sharing the prize.


Scratch off ticket odds almost always beat draw games BUT the odds change daily. Check back frequently to keep up with the latest odds changes!


Draw games pull from a range of numbers and patterns aren’t likely to show up on the winning ticket. A winning ticket is unlikely to have of a pattern like 3, 13, 23, 33, 43. It also unlikely to be a straight range of numbers like 11, 12, 13, 14, and 15. Also, mix up your numbers by using both even and odd numbers.
