Lottery Wheels

USE BALANCED WHEEL SYSTEMS

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. For the best way to win RSA Powerball, wheel less than about 30 of the total 50 numbers.
Otherwise, you’ll be spending MORE money chasing a SMALLER guaranteed prize.
You benefit more by wheeling a carefully selected group of lotto numbers.

THE BEST WAY TO WHEEL ALL THE LOTTO NUMBERS IN YOUR GAME

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 lotto book, Lottery Master Guide.

Most of Smart Luck’s lottery winners used a Balanced Wheel
in addition to her Smart Luck number selection methods. You can use a
FREE interactive lotto Balanced Wheeling System that won
multiple jackpots. Read about our lotto winners, too. And
when you win a jackpot with Smart Luck lotto systems, tell us about it so you can be added to Gail Howard’s
growing list of winners. If you don’t want your name publicized, we will honor
that.

Powerball Plus prizes and odds

There are no fixed payouts for every division for every draw. They vary because of a different number of winning tickets every time. It depends also on ticket sales amount. There are two payout divisions guaranteed — when you match 0/5 or 1/5 both with Powerball. In the table below you can see what is the share of the reward pool of every tier when the jackpot is won.

Matched numbers Share of prize pool Odds of winning
5 correct + PB 54.46% 1 in 42,375,200
5 4.00% 1 in 2,230,274
4/5 + PB 2.50% 1 in 188,334
4/5 4.24% 1 in 9,912
3/5 + PB 4.80% 1 in 4,280
3/5 4.00% 1 in 225
2/5 + PB 3.00% 1 in 299
1/5 + PB fixed R 7.50 1 in 57
0/5 + PB fixed R 5 1 in 35

All Jackpot prizes are rounded to nearest R1. For lower divisions, prizes are rounded to 10 cents. As you see, this is a great second chance opportunity to win more. Always remember though, winning is very hard. So don’t spend too much money on gambling with lottery tickets!

PB Plus jackpots and rollovers

SSimilar to the main lottery — there is rollover happening quite often. Jackpot prize grows as long as nobody hits the 5/5 numbers and PB. Pool for 1 prize division is rolled over to the next draw’s corresponding tier.

  1. If there are no winners in division 2-8 (happens in 2nd from time to time) then the pool rolls down to the lower division, e.g. division 2 to division 3.
  2. If there are no winners in division 8 (not expected) then the pool rolls over to division 1 of the next draw.
  3. Breakage from any Powerball Plus division rollover to the same division next draw.

History of Powerball Plus in South Africa

It was launched on 1st December 2015. First guaranteed jackpot was huge — R10,000,000. It wasn’t hit until 05.01.2016 by two African players, who shared R23,299,305. There were minor changes in the main game after the launch. Two more prize tiers were added and the ticket price was increased a little bit.

Powerball jackpots and rollovers

Similar to other lottery games there is a mechanism called rollover for not claimed jackpots. The main prize grows as long as no one matches the 5/5 numbers and of course — additional number — Power Ball (PB). Pool for 1st prize division is rolled over to the next Draw’s corresponding division. Powerball became famous because of the large jackpot rollovers. These are expected in more cases too, which we point below:

  1. If there are no winners in division 2-8, then the pool rolls down to the lower division, e.g. division 4 to division 5.
  2. If there are no winners in division 8 (but they always are), then the pool rolls over to division 1 of the next draw.
  3. Breakage from any PB division rolls over to the same division next draw.

How big can be the jackpot?

The minimum jackpot is R3 million, and there is no limitation of rollovers. To date, the biggest one was on June 3rd, 2011 with the amount of R102,016,595.

How to WIN Powerball in South Africa

ODD-EVEN LOTTO NUMBER TIPS

When you select your powerball 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 4 percent of the time.
The best mix is to have 3/2 or 2/3 which means three odd and two even, or two odd and three even. One of these two number patterns will occur in about 70 percent of drawings.

HIGH-LOW LOTTO NUMBER TIPS

Winning numbers are usually spread across the entire number field, or across 45 numbers for Powerball.
If we take a number field and cut it in half, we have the low half and the high half. In a
50-number game like Republic of South Africa Powerball, numbers 1 to 25 would be in the low half, and numbers 26 to 50
would be in the high half. All high numbers or all low numbers are rarely drawn, occurring
in only 4 percent of Powerball results. The best mix is to have 3/2 or 2/3 which means three
high and two low, or two high and three low. One of these 2 patterns will occur in about 69 percent of drawings,
so its a very strong pattern to follow for future powerball drawings.

LOTTERY NUMBER GROUP STRATEGIES

View the past RSA Powerball game drawings, and note that most often,
one or more of the number groups is not represented.
For example, in the combination 2-7-12-25-49-55, there are no 30’s.
Tracking and studying Number Groups can help you decide which group to omit and which group to give extra heavy play.

LOTTERY GAMES SKIPPED STRATEGIES

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.)

LOTTO NUMBER SUM ADVICE — PLAY A BALANCED GAME

After you choose five powerball main numbers you want to play, add them together and make sure
that the sum of the five numbers adds up to somewhere between 95 and 160. Sums that
fall within that range will account for over 70 percent of all lottery jackpots won.
Playing a balanced game is one of the keys to how to win South African Powerball lotto.

REPEAT HITS LOTTERY TIPS

In RSA Powerball, on average, one lottery number will be a repeat hit from the last drawing every
other drawing or 40 percent of the time.

HOT NUMBER LOTTERY SECRETS

Numbers that have been out (losers) for six games or less account for about half of
the winning numbers. Losing numbers
that have been out for 9 games or less account for
about two-thirds of all the winning numbers. Losing numbers
that have been out for 12
games or less account for about three-quarters 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 5.

COLD NUMBER LOTTERY SECRETS

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 due, 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.

Lottery Strategies to Help You Win RSA Powerball

Treat the five main lottery balls as you would any pick-5 game. Wheel them using the
Balanced Wheels in the Wheel Five Gold software or the book, Lotto
Winning Wheels for Powerball & MEGA Millions. Do not wheel the
PowerBall. This number is marked
on a separate set of 20 numbers on your bet slip. (If you use the Advantage Gold
software, press the P+/P*/P- or B+/B*/B- button to see all the charts for the five white balls;
or see all the charts for the Powerball Ball by itself. Or see all the charts for
all six balls together (which we do not recommend).

Here are a few lottery tips on number selection from Gail Howard’s lotto strategy book, Lottery Master Guide, which have been customized
to help you learn how to win the South Africa Powerball 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 200 different lotto games worldwide, with
histories going back as far as 1955, we have verified the following incredibly
simple rule:

That which is MOST POSSIBLE happens MOST OFTEN.
That which is LEAST POSSIBLE happens LEAST OFTEN.

The key to Smart Luck’s successful lotto 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 probabilities.

Save Money by Knowing Lotto Numbers to Avoid

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 players—and save money, too.

AVOID NUMBER COMBINATIONS THAT HAVE BEEN DRAWN BEFORE

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 Powerball,
with two drawings a week, a set of five numbers plus the Powerball Ball
has a chance of being drawn once
every 407,454 years!!! This should also answer the question we are so often asked,
«Shouldn’t I keep playing the same set of numbers every week because they are due
to hit sometime?»

AVOID BETTING ONE LOTTO NUMBER GROUP

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

AVOID THE COMBINATION 1-2-3-4-5

The most popular set of numbers most often played is: 1-2-3-4-5. 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.

AVOID PATTERN BETTING

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 play—which 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.

AVOID NUMBER MULTIPLES

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

AVOID ALL SAME LAST DIGITS

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 no more than one repeated last digit represent nearly 90 percent of all
drawings.

AVOID LOW NUMBER COMBINATIONS

The majority of Lotto players like to play the calendar numbers, such as birth
dates and anniversaries—and their children’s ages. This means that the most
heavily played numbers are 1 through 31. South African Powerball has 50 numbers. If you play
only the calendar numbers, you might be sharing your jackpot with dozens of other
winners. It’s not to say that you shouldn’t play your personal numbers if you feel these lucky numbers are good to play. But we 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.

History of South African Powerball

Powerball is with African players since October 2009. South African players are really keen on this type of a game. Payout pools are more extensive, more divisions (9) and fun. Even if you match only PB number, you win something. Over the years it made many Africans millionaires. Prize pool may never reach amounts seen in European lotteries or American ones, but still, they are enough for our country realities. On the first draw on 23.10.2009, somebody won R30,000,000! Then jackpot got rolled many times to be hit on 12.02.2010 with an outstanding prize of R 91,068,427 which is the record till now. In June 2018, a number of drawn balls changed from 45 to 50.

Powerball prizes and odds

Prizes are different for every draw. They depend on it if the jackpot was hit and the number of winning players overall. It also depends on ticket sales amount. There are two payout divisions fixed — when you hit results as 0/5 or 1/5 both with Power Ball. If somebody hit the jackpot matching all numbers, the share of the prize pool is similar to shown below in the table. In other cases, it may change slightly. Notice that this lottery game has bigger pool designed especially for 1st tier prize.

Matched numbers Share of prize pool Odds of winning
5 correct + PB 54.46% 1 in 42,375,200
5 4.00% 1 in 2,230,274
4/5 + PB 2.50% 1 in 188,334
4/5 4.24% 1 in 9,912
3/5 + PB 4.80% 1 in 4,280
3/5 4.00% 1 in 225
2/5 + PB 3.00% 1 in 299
1/5 + PB fixed R 15 1 in 57
0/5 + PB fixed R 10 1 in 35

All Jackpot prizes round to nearest R1. You can win once per every entry filled with correct results of Powerball. Other payouts round to nearest 10 cents. Remember that exactly expected jackpot rollover may be unknown up to the date of the draw. Also, have in mind that winning Powerball is much harder than Lotto.
