Lotto players play to win big and though you might miss most times, chances to win the big prize are always present and at times quite close. While some players work with a special technique and adopt a calculated approach, others choose to play the numbers game or randomly pick a series of seemingly lucky draws. Many players even go as far as to use computerised software to help get a better analysis of their game and round up a series of statistical advantageous numbers that might put them in a better position.
