However, some lottery experts believe that your odds get better if you play random numbers as the draws are also random. The problem is that picking random numbers is easier said than done. This is where the Quick Pick option comes in. Through this option, you allow a computer to generate a set of numbers for you to play in the 4D games and they are completely random.
- Use the statistics
It is true that lottery numbers are not drawn according to an algorithm or any pattern; they are random. However, if you study the past results, you will realize that there are some patterns to be spotted. Some numbers tend to be drawn more frequently whereas there are those that are rarely drawn. You can study the numbers and figure out what are the best numbers to play. The numbers drawn regularly are referred to as hot numbers while those that are not drawn that regularly are called cold numbers. You can select a combination of both hot and cold numbers and boost your chances of taking home the 4D Jackpot.
- Use a high and low combination

There is wide range of numbers to choose from and it is best to spread out your choices to ensure you get the best possible chance of winning. Choose some high numbers and choose some low numbers and make sure they are from different number groups.
