We all lead busy lives and there just doesn’t seem to be enough time to get everything done. We work to support our families; we take care of our children; and we do the shopping, laundry, cooking, and all the other household chores. If only we could live our lives without such mundane worries. If only we could win the lottery to make all our dreams come true!
Every time a lottery offers an incredibly high jackpot, such as when the leading American lottery Powerball sported a $1.58 billion jackpot prize in January 2016, we envy the winners and imagine ourselves in their shoes. But with our busy lives, we just might not be able to purchase our own lottery tickets in time to participate in the next draw. Luckily there are ways to play the lottery when you just don’t have enough time.
Quick pick. When purchasing lottery tickets at a retailer you might not have the luxury to stand around and choose which numbers to play. And the more lines you decide to purchase, the longer it will take to fill out your tickets. Luckily, when playing the lottery you have the option of letting the computer choose your numbers for you. This random, quick pick option results in number combinations that you never previously considered. Sometimes the computer’s selection will be just what you need to win the lottery!
Multi-draw tickets. Once you purchase your tickets, you may wish to save yourself the hassle of buying them again for the next draw. That’s why it is advantageous to purchase a multi-draw package, letting the numbers you choose participate in more than one draw of your favourite lottery. If those numbers aren’t lucky this time, they could end up winning you prizes the next time.
Lottery subscription. Even better than buying a multi-draw ticket is taking out a lottery subscription. A subscription makes sure that you will never miss another draw. Your chosen numbers will stay in the game until one day they end up winning for you. A lottery subscription enables you to play the lottery even if you don’t have enough time to think about it.
Lottery syndicate. By playing the lottery with others, you will be able to purchase more tickets while spending less money. There is certainly strength in numbers and the more tickets you play, the greater your chances of winning a prize. Playing the lottery with others can save you time when buying tickets as sometimes your friends and/or colleagues will be the ones making the purchase.
Mobile play. These days it’s simpler than ever to play the lottery. Not only can purchase your tickets online, you can also purchase them on the go wherever you are. The National Lottery offers an app that enables mobile lottery play in the UK. In the United States, the lotteries of many states, including the Illinois Lottery, provide an app that lets you play the lottery in the palm of your hand. This is especially helpful if you don’t have the time to purchase your tickets when the lotteries offer extremely big jackpots.
It is quite clear that playing the lottery does not need to be time-consuming at all. You can purchase tickets in advance of the draws, play with your friends, and even play the game on your smartphone. One thing you may need to do, however, is set aside time to collect your prize and spend your lottery winnings. Good luck!
