Systems & Strategies

Other than buying a ticket for every different possible number combination (there's 116,531,800 of them!), there is no fool proof system or strategy that can be relied upon to win the EuroMillions lottery. Despite this, hundreds of lottery systems have been developed over the years by avid players, keen to crack the secret. Some of the more prevalent strategies are described below.

The Dream Scheme

Dream interpreters insist that we can find significant meaning hidden within our dreams with some even suggest that we can interpret these events numerically in order to find our lucky numbers. According to Sam Weren, author of The National Lottery Book: Winning Strategies, dreams can be translated into a sequence of numbers that could help players discover the winning lottery formula. Weren provides readers with a list of themes that commonly occur in dreams as well as providing their corresponding number sequence. He hypothesises that if players study these sequences to identify repetitions in numbers, they could use numbers which are repeated to find a winning combination. Take a look at just some of the sequences below:

Birth of a baby: 7, 22, 32, 23 and 5

Christmas: 9, 42, 34, 32 and 43

Death of a friend: 22, 4, 49, 9 and 13

Hair loss: 10, 1, 20, 8 and 2

Swimming: 4, 20, 22, 2 and 48

Toothache: 3, 20, 21, 10 and 12

Weddings: 27, 9, 36, 45 and 3

The Pyramid Plan

The Pyramid Plan is a method of assigning numbers to letters in order to obtain a set of digits that parallels a name, place or word. Use the chart below to convert your name into lucky numbers.

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0

K L M N O P Q R
S T U V W X
Y Z

Soul Path

Some players like to include just one key number, or a Soul Path number, in every sequence. You can find your Soul Path number by adding together the digits of your birthday to make one number. If you were born on 20 October 1991, your birthday can be written numerically as 20/10/1991, in which case your Soul Path calculation would be (20 + 10) + (1 + 9) + (9 + 1) or 30 + 10 + 10 = 50. Should the final number from the calculation be above the highest number on the lottery number matrix, simply add the two digits together to bring it within the allowable numbers.
