What Numbers Should I Play In Pick 6 Games?

Pick 6 lotto games are popular because of the size of their jackpots. Players must match six out of usually somewhere between 47 and 50 numbers. The 6/47 and 6/50 games are typical. So, how does one go about choosing his or her numbers in order to win the jackpot?


Some players will stick to the tried and true birthdates and anniversaries. You should try to avoid this. Here’s why. Using only dates on a calendar severely limits your numbers. There are only 31 days in a month and only 12 months in a year. In Pick 6 games there are several numbers over 31. Using dates, you will never choose these numbers.

The other reason to stay away from dates is that other people will continue to use them. There will be others that have the same birthdate or anniversary. If you win, they win also and you end up sharing a jackpot.

Not using important dates does not mean that you should go out and haphazardly select random numbers. What you need to do is to analyze past winning numbers and look at the frequency of certain numbers. Analyzing numbers will tune you in to what numbers are hot, those that have been drawn more often, and those that are cold, the ones that have not been drawn so much.

Studying the frequency of numbers can give you a better chance at selecting winning numbers in Pick 6 lotto games. Develop a system that you are comfortable with and put it into effect for the best results.
