Hey you... Looking for the best Virginia Lottery (VA) games to play? Well, I got some thoughts on what the best are, which will hopefully help you win. But first, take a look at the most recent Virginia lottery winners. It's always good to start off with some motivation. These people have already won big with VA Lottery. Hopefully, it'll be your turn next!
Do you have any kind of strategy when you play lotto games? I know what you're probably thinking... The lottery is random, so how can there be any strategies. I know and I agree, but you can still strategize. I'll tell you what I mean. But first, let me run through the features of some of the most popular VA Lottery games.
Powerball: Powerball is probably the mother of all Virginia Lottery games. It often has the highest jackpots, sometimes reaching into the hundreds millions of dollars. The odds of choosing the winning numbers are astronomical, though. The odds of winning the jackpot are 1-in-175,233,510. Powerball costs $2 to play.
Mega Millions: Mega Millions has similar odds to Powerball. The odds of winning the jackpot are 1-in-175,711,536. Mega Millions costs less to play, though. Mega Millions tickets are $1 each.
Win For Life: Win For Life is a pretty cool game that offers a top prize of $1000 a week for life. Tickets cost $1 and the odds of winning the top prize are 1-in-5,245,786.
Decades Of Dollars: Decades Of Dollars is a game that costs $2 to play and offers a top prize of $4 million. The odds of winning the top prize are 1-in-10,737,573.
VA Lottery has many other games, including Pick 3, Pick 4, Cash 5, and many different scratchers. I won't be discussing these games as they offer lower jackpot amounts (However, there are some scratchers with high jackpots).
The Strategy: OK, so you remember how I told you that you could strategize when playing the lottery? Now I'll tell you what I mean.
First, I need to make sure we're on the same wavelength when it comes to what we hope to achieve when playing the lotto. If you're like me, then you want to win a big life-changing amount of money and you want the best chance to do it. Right? OK.
So, we want to play the games with the best odds and we want to win as much money as possible. However, if you look at the most popular games above, you'll see that the games with the highest jackpots also are the hardest to win. The Virginia Lottery game with the best odds of winning is Win For Life. If you hit the Win For Life jackpot, you win $1000 a week for life. It doesn't compare to the hundreds of millions of dollars that you could win in Powerball, but it's still a life-changing amount of money. The bottom line is that Win For Life is A LOT easier to win than Powerball.
How much easier is it to win on Win For Life. Well, let's consider playing $2 on each game. If you buy $2 worth of Win For Life tickets, you would be about 67 times more likelier to win than if you bought $2 worth of Powerball tickets. Amazing, isn't it? It's that much easier to win. That's why I'd say, if your a regular lottery player in Virginia, I'd advise you to play the Win For Life game.
