How to Get a Positive Expected Rate of Return on a Lottery Ticket.

From Scientific American:

“Look for an after-tax, cash value of the jackpot that exceeds 0.8 times the odds against you, and in which the number of tickets sold remains less than one-fifth this jackpot.”

“Pick the most unpopular numbers… By playing unpopular numbers you won’t win any more or less often, but you’ll less often split the pot with other winners.”

“Don’t pick the number one. It’s on about 15 percent of all tickets. Similarly, avoid lucky numbers 7, 13, 23, 32, 42, and 48. Better are 26, 34, 44, 45, and especially overlooked number 46. Avoid any recognizable pattern, but give slight preference to numbers at the edge of the ticket, which are underused. In mathematical terms, picking a unique ticket makes the jackpot look bigger and thus your lottery dollar look smarter.”
