Let's ignore the fact that none of us will most likely win. Instead you can focus on a few ways that will help improve your odds, even if it's just a little bit.

If you are among the group of people that waits for bigger jackpots to play, the bad news is that your odds only get worse. The good news is that eventually somebody has to win it, so why not you? Check out a few ways to increase your odds below, and good luck! If you win, just remember who gave you all these good tips!
