The lottery. Everyone wants to win the jackpot and get rich overnight, but the truth is, you have a better chance at becoming President of the United States than this happening.
That does not mean that you should avoid Texas lottery games entirely, it just means that some games have better odds than others of you actually winning.
So, what are the best Texas lottery games to actually have a chance to win? These are a few that stand out.
This has four drawings a day six days per week (all but Sunday) and all you have to do in this game is pick three numbers in single digits. With this, you are already getting down to just ten numbers to choose from, but you can increase your chances even more.
The first thing you can do is select a “Fireball” that gives you the option to replace that with any of the three numbers that you picked. The second thing is you can play the ticket where the numbers can come out in any order rather than having it in exact order.
So, let’s say you play the number 123. If the number 321 came out, you would win the prize if you chose any order option. With this, the odds are as low as 1 in 69 to win any type of prize.
The Daily 4 works very similarly to the Pick 3 in that both have four drawings per day six days a week (all but Sunday) except that here, you are picking four numbers instead of three.
You still get to pick entirely from single-digit numbers here and add the “Fireball” as an option to replace one of the numbers. Like the Pick 3, you also have the option to box your numbers that way you win if they come out in any order rather than the exact order.
The odds in this game are as low as 1 in 149.
Following the same pattern, here you are picking one more number and have to match five numbers on your ticket to win the jackpot. However, the numbers you choose from in this game range from 1-35 rather than just single-digit numbers like the other two games.
Unlike the other two games, this lottery has just one draw per day but it is also six days per week (all but Sunday). However, the odds are very reasonable here because you do get payouts for small matches.
Overall, there is a 1 in 7.2 odds chance of you winning some money. The easiest is just matching two numbers where you get a free Cash 5 pick. If you match three numbers, you get $15 and the odds of that are 1 in 75.
