Tracing the past winning numbers for Texas Lotto, you can determine the numbers to be neglected and the numbers which should be given importance.
Sum of individual numbers
A time tested technique you have on your side is to make a number selection after summing up of all your selected numbers. Always bear in mind that a sum that falls between 124 and 200 has a higher probability. When summed up, the numbers chosen should be balanced. Either way outside the figures, would mean result in imbalance thereby significantly reducing the possibility of winning.
Strategy Using Skipped Games
Make a list of all the games skipped since that last win.
Now mark the numbers of times each skip occurred in the whole list. If a skip did not occur between 0 and 5, bet on those numbers that are out that many number of games.
You should never play or place bets out of despair. Our internal emotion would reflect in the results. Hence if you are fearful of losing, you might just loose. It is recommended that you have an extremely strong desire to win and you might just win.
Avoid those combinations of numbers that have been drawn earlier
In Texas Lotto, the chance of a combination being drawn a second time is once every 220,745 years.
Avoid continuous lotto numbers
In the history of most International lottery games, 6 consecutive numbers have never been drawn.
Avoid the same digit in the last position of all numbers. It would occur in less than 3% of the drawings.
Avoid the combination 1 2 3 4 5 6. This is extremely out of balance to appear in a random draw.
