Here are a few free number selection tips from Gail Howard's lotto book, V 

, which have been customized for this specific game: Philippines Lotto 6/42. (Additional
best tools for this game.)

Lottery numbers are randomly drawn. But randomly drawn numbers form patterns that can
be tracked and used to our advantage. Having carefully analyzed all the drawings in past lotto
results of more than 190 different lotto games worldwide, with histories going back as far as
1955, Gail Howard have verified the following incredibly simple rule:

The key to Gail Howard's successful number selection methods is playing the probabilities.
If you play a pattern that occurs only five percent of the time, you can expect that pattern to lose
95 percent of the time, giving you no chance to win 95 percent of the time. So, don't buck the

When you select your lotto numbers, try to have a relatively even mix of odd and even numbers.
All odd numbers or all even numbers are rarely drawn, occurring only two percent of the time.
The best mix is to have 2/4, 4/2 or 3/3, which means two odd and four even, or four odd and two
even, or three odd and three even. One of these three patterns will occur in 83 percent of the

Winning numbers are usually spread across the entire number field. If we take a number field
and cut it in half, we have the low half and the high half. In a 42-number game, numbers 1 to 21
would be in the low half, and numbers 22 to 42 would be in the high half. All high numbers or
all low numbers are rarely drawn, occurring only 1 percent of the time. The best mix is to have
2/4, 4/2 or 3/3, which means two high and four low, or four high and two low, or three high and
three low. Winning number groups with these three patterns occur in 78 percent of all drawings.

Look at a list of past winning numbers for Philippines Lotto, and you'll see, more often than not,
that one or more of the number groups is not represented. For example, in the combination 5-14-
17-32-38-42, there are no 20's. Tracking and studying Number Groups can help you decide
which group to omit and which group to give extra heavy play.

 j j

List the number of games skipped (games out) since the last hit (win) for each of the winning
numbers during the last five games. Then mark the number of times each skip occurred. If any
skip from 0 to 5 did not occur, play the Lotto numbers that are out that many games. (Help
working with lotto games skipped.)

After you choose six numbers you want to play, add them together and make sure that the sum of
the six numbers adds up to somewhere between 100 and 158. Sums that fall within that range
will account for over 70 percent of all lottery jackpots won.

 j¢ j
In Philippines Lotto 6/42, on average, one lottery number will be a repeat hit from the last
drawing 65 percent of the time.

¢ j j

Numbers that have been out (losers) for four games or less account for about half of the winning
numbers drawn. Losing numbers that have been out ten games or less account for 84 percent of
all the winning numbers. This tells us that hot numbers are more likely to hit, but don't forget to
include at least one long shot in your group of 6.


It is difficult to know when a cold number will end a long losing streak. If you play a number
every drawing because you think it is !", you could be chasing it for many months. (Number 45
in New York Lotto sat out 100 drawings before it finally hit.) Although, when a number has been
out for 70 games or so, it might be worth chasing.

Several of the 106 Lotto jackpots won with Gail Howard's lottery systems were won by groups
of people who pooled their money. Sharing the ticket cost with others stretches your lotto
budget. By playing with a group, you can afford to buy more lottery tickets²and play larger
wheeling systems²than you could (or should) by yourself. Draw up an agreement and have the
members of your pool sign it.

When you form a Lotto pool, your group is also pooling its aggregate luck. A jackpot could
happen because of the luck just one member brings to your pool. Select your partners carefully.
Share your luck with winners, not losers. Avoid negative people. Not only are they unlucky, but
they dampen enthusiasm and drain energy from others. You want to enhance your own luck, not
dilute its strength. One quick way to tell winners from losers is simply to ask them: "Do you
think you are a lucky person?" Many people quickly admit, "I'm unlucky. I never win anything."
They won't bring good luck to your group either.

No one should play games of chance out of desperation because they need the winnings. The
needy have a greater fear of losing the hard-earned money they gamble with. It is just one of
life's dirty tricks that the very fear of losing blocks the winning forces. Thoughts are charged
with energy, especially when triggered by emotion. Fear attracts exactly that which one fears. A
strong desire for a goal that is charged with positive energy, attracts a positive response,
especially when every effort is made to attain that goal.



Balanced Wheeling® Systems allow you to bet a large group of numbers (more than 5), play
scientific combinations of that group of numbers, and get a specific minimum win guarantee.
Balanced Wheels® force all the winning numbers that are in your group to come together to give
you at least one prize if some or all of the winning numbers are in your chosen group.
It's true that the more numbers you wheel, the easier it is to trap the winning numbers in your
chosen group. But to get the most leverage for your money, the optimum number of numbers to
wheel is not more than four or five numbers over HALF the numbers in your game. Otherwise,
you'll be spending MORE money chasing a SMALLER guaranteed prize. You benefit more by
wheeling a carefully selected group of lottery numbers.

Any one wheeling system that covers ALL the numbers in the game is too spread out, making
the win guarantee not worth the wager. There are smart ways to wheel all the numbers in the
game by using Trap-by-Overlap and other wheeling strategies covered on pages 137 to 142 in
Gail Howard's lottery winning book, V 

Most of Gail Howard's Jackpot Winners used a Balanced Wheel in addition to Smart Luck®
number selection methods. You can use a FREE interactive Balanced Wheeling System that won
multiple jackpots. Read about Gail Howard's winners, too. And when you win a jackpot with
these lottery systems, tell us about it so we can add you to Gail Howard's growing list of
winners. If you don't want your name publicized, we will honor that.
Lotto players who select their lottery numbers thoughtlessly or foolishly are destined to
lose even before the drawing takes place. By knowing which number combinations and patterns
to avoid, you'll have an advantage over such players²and save money, too.

Many players like to bet the numbers that have won someone else a big jackpot, and by doing so,
they are almost guaranteed NOT to win one themselves. In Philippines Lotto 6/42, with two
drawings a week, a set of 6 numbers has a chance of being drawn once every 50,440 years!!!
This should also answer the question Gail Howard is so often asked, "Shouldn't I keep playing
the same set of numbers every week because they are due to hit sometime?"


Six consecutive numbers have never been drawn in any state or international Lotto game. Gail
Howard has all the drawing results for more than 160 state and international Lotto games, going
back more than fifty years! Even five consecutive numbers is a very rare occurrence that, in most
Lotto games, has never happened once.


Never choose all six numbers from one number group, such as all single digits, or all teens, or all
20's, etc. All six winning numbers drawn from one group is highly unlikely.

The most popular set of numbers most often played is: 1-2-3-4-5-6. Thousands of tickets are
bought with this combination every drawing. The selection is too far out of balance to come up
in a random drawing.

  jj jj 

Pattern betting is an even more popular method of marking bet slips. Patterns of numbers marked
in a row to make a straight line, either across the bet slip vertically or diagonally get heavy
play²which means sharing the prize with others if the numbers are drawn as winners. Other
designs such as patterns of initials or numbers or crosses also get heavy play.


Other popular combinations that get heavy play are the number multiples, especially 5-10-15-20-
25-30 and 7-14-21-28-35-42.

Many people like to play same last digits, such as 3-13-23-33-43, or all digits that end in seven,
or some other favorite lucky lottery number. Even four same last digits occur in less than two-
tenths of one percent of all drawings. Winning sets of numbers with three last digits the same
occur in less than 3 percent of all drawings. Winning sets of numbers with no more than one
repeated last digit represent nearly 90 percent of all drawings.


The majority of Lotto players like to play the calendar numbers, such as birth dates and
anniversaries²and their children's ages. This means that the most heavily played numbers are 1
through 31. Lotto 6/42 has 42 numbers. If you play only the calendar numbers, you might be
sharing your jackpot with dozens of other winners. It's not necessarily that you shouldn't play
your personal numbers if you feel they are lucky for you. But Gail Howard would recommend
that you include a couple of high numbers so that just in case your numbers do hit, you win a
prize that's worth something.


Quick Picks are used by lazy people who want to be in the action without putting any effort into
winning. When you read articles about jackpot winners, it appears as though they all used either
Quick Picks, birth dates, or their children's ages. The vast majority of people do play that way. If
the majority of tickets sold are Quick Picks, then it makes sense that the majority of jackpots
won should be won with Quick Picks. However, when Gail Howard saw the actual statistics, she
found that you have a better chance of winning by picking numbers randomly out of a hat than
by using Quick Picks.
