What are the lottery numbers? Most Lotteries issue a set of numbers from 1 to 9 and 0 used separately or in pairs drawn randomly from a transparent balloon jar with balls on the draw. Each ball contains a digit or a pair. Those who possess a matching digit or series of digits are the ones on whom the lady luck shines. The lotteries also have lines of several pairs to win. This way a person can play several lines of numbers or pairs separately to win a draw. If all the 5 pairs of the draw are chosen correctly a jackpot awaits the player. If no one wins the Jackpot, the amount rolls over to the next draw. It may eventually run into millions making the subsequent draws more and more attractive. It is all about choosing your lucky number to match the draw ball number.

The system of numbers in lotteries works in many ways. It can be the last number of a sequence as on the players’ printed tickets. It can be a group. It can be a combination of pairs used to participate in different simultaneous draws. The pursuit of a lottery stalker is to purchase a ticket with a series.

The mystery of what are the lottery numbers and how to pick up a winning number has several theories.  People go over the previous draws to see a pattern. Check the winners and do their own maths. There are even on-line tutorials to guide and teach you to pick up a winning combination number. These tutorials vary in their content of guessing as per the theories followed by each portal.

There are theories even about the encryption of numbers in the computer software. They believe that there can be a very near prediction of the final number by going through the methods of encryptions. For instance if the last win was, say, 3-9-12-21-15, the computer must have held 3-6-6-9-6.The theorists arrive at these by beginning with 3 being the first number and then subsequently subtracting the next from the previous one.

It may not work. The combination of encryption may go infinitely but the number crunchers have their own laws and beliefs in lottery mathematics sometimes bordering on madness to simply amusing. People go for them mostly because a lottery is after all a belief in lucky numbers.
