Everyone dreams that someday they will win the lottery. People who play the lottery quite frequently will have some sort of system of picking numbers. While there are many different strategies on how those numbers can be chosen, you have to find a system that works for you. Depending on the amount of numbers that must be chosen, you may have many different styles from which to choose.

Select your date of birth to use for your lucky numbers. The date of birth is the most commonly used method to choose lucky numbers for people who play the lottery. For example, if your birthday is January 7, 1956, you can use 01, 07, 56 as your lucky numbers.

Read your horoscope. A lot of times if you pick up the paper and read your daily horoscope, it will include a few lucky numbers. This is a great way to try your luck at the lottery to see if it will pay off.

Look at the time you are purchasing your lottery ticket. Sometimes you can find your lucky match by just looking at your watch. Whatever system you may choose may just work out for you.

Remind yourself of important dates. Some people use the dates of special occasions for their lucky numbers. Dates such as an anniversary, a child's birthday and holidays are great lucky numbers to use.

Follow lottery trends. Most major lotteries have the ability to track the numbers to see what numbers may actually come up frequently. Keep a listing of the lottery numbers that you see to track which ones come up more often than others.
