Go For Medium & Small Wins
When you wheel numbers in any lottery draw you give yourself multiple chances of winning multiple prizes. For example, if you are fortunate enough to pick all the correct numbers then you will win much more than just the 1 jackpot prize. Because the winning numbers you chose will come up on multiple lines (because you wheeled your numbers) you will have multiple entries with different combinations of those numbers on it. Thus you will win the jackpot, plus additional prizes.
For example, if you wheel 8 numbers and 6 of your numbers are in the winning numbers in a 6 from 49 game you will win 1 jackpot prize, plus at least 1 match 5 prize, multiple match 4 prizes and multiple match 3 prizes – thus increasing your overall winnings.
Obviously you will be more likely to only pick 5, 4 or 3 correct numbers but the principle remains the same; you will win multiple prizes and not just 1 when you have enough winning numbers in your wheel that would win only one prize for someone who is not wheeling their numbers.
This is where the power of wheeling truly lies because you can win multiple small and medium prizes by matching only a few correct numbers. And, when you can do this consistently over many games you can build up your profits nicely. If you reinvest a portion of your winnings so you can wheel even more numbers you can quickly start earning good regular money from your lotto plays.
This is how to win the lottery powerball prizes that can make you rich in the long-term rather than relying on just 1 jackpot win. Rather than winning one massive prize you can win multiple smaller prizes and win them consistently over weeks, months and even years.
How to Play
While picking numbers every week is one way to play, it’s not your only option. Let’s take a closer look at the different ways to play the game.
First, you have Easy Pick, which lets the computer choose six random numbers for you. You can also do a combination; you select some numbers, and the computer picks the rest.
You also can purchase Power Play. For an additional $1 per play, you can earn between two and 10 times more money if you win a non-jackpot prize. The Power Play can multiply your winnings by two, three, four, five or 10 times based upon the Power Play ball that is drawn in a given drawing. There are 24 2x balls, 13 3x balls, three 4x balls and 5x balls each and one 10X ball.
A Multi-draw play means you’re playing with the same numbers over and over again. You can play up to 26 times in a row with the same six numbers.
A Repeat play means you’re getting the same numbers repeatedly for one drawing. You can purchase the same numbers up to 20 times per drawing.
There are Game Machines in 1,500+ stores across Virginia that allow you to skip the checkout lines and get your Powerball tickets without the hassle of going to a cashier. You can also create a Virginia Lottery account and purchase your tickets online while you are anywhere in Virginia.
Wheeling is an often misunderstood concept even among lottery players who use it.
Firstly, let me dispel a lingering myth: lottery number wheeling is not a means of landing a jackpot win.
Although wheeling your numbers will significantly increase your odds of landing a jackpot prize it is not the main aim for using it.
Many people are disappointed when they learn that there is no method for securing a jackpot and still cling to the desire to land one. When they learn about wheeling they get excited about winning the jackpot and want to wheel as many numbers as possible to make their dream a reality.
So, can they succeed?
Yes, wheeling numbers does give you a huge improvement in your odds of winning a jackpot prize but this is not its main purpose and you should never get caught-up in chasing the jackpot. If it happens great but if it happens it is mostly down to luck and we don’t want to rely on luck; we want to rely on the mathematics of probability manipulation.
