How to Increase Your Chances of Winning the Montana Lottery

Winning the lottery or a car raffle is perhaps one of the best things in the world that can happen to anyone. You have a one in a couple of million chance of winning, but the prize is definitely worth it. All it takes is for you to buy participating in the draw by choosing your lucky number. But how exactly do you win in the Montana lottery? Are there any known strategies that could somehow increase your odds of winning? Read on and find out.

The Montana Cash Five Lotto

Back in 1991, the Montana Cash Five lotto began its run as a 5/37 game. Many people tried their chances with the game, and a few selected individuals were able to take a chance and win the jackpot. In 2014, the lotto changed to its current format and became the Montana Cash 5/45 that we know today.

To play Montana Cash Five, you need to choose five numbers from 1-45. Drawings are held twice a week, on Wednesdays and Saturdays. What’s great about this is that the Montana Cash Five gives a generous two plays for a dollar promo, making it quite a hit to the average American.  When you enter the lottery, you have a one in 1,221,759 chance. Since they offer a two-for-one promo, you’re basically improving the odds by half. You’ll have the chance to win $40,000 in cash. While it’s not exactly an easy million, it’s still a substantial amount for something that costs you a dollar to participate.

How to Increase Your Chances of Winning the Cash Five Lotto

Like any other form of lotto or car sweepstakes, your odds of winning are entirely up to you. How much you spend and how many tickets you purchase will determine your chances of winning the jackpot. If you’re really determined to win, here are some practical tips to consider:

Odd-Even Lotto Number Tips

Everything starts with you selecting your lotto numbers. When trying to figure out which number to choose, try to have a relatively even mix of odd and even numbers. All odd numbers or all even numbers are rarely drawn, occurring less than 2% of the time. The best mix is to have 3/2 or 2/3, which means three odd and two even, or two odd and three even. This pattern is very likely to occur in 68% of the drawings.

High-Low Lotto Number Tips

Now, on the topic of winning numbers, they are usually spread across the entire number field. If we take a number field and cut it in half, we have the low half and the high half. In a 45-number game like the Montana Cash Five, the first 22 numbers will be in the lower half, while the number 23 all the way to 45 would be in the high half. Same with the odd-even scheme, all high numbers, and all low numbers have a particularly low chance of occurring. This means you also need to mix up your choices with a 3/2 or 2/3 mix of highs and lows if you want a higher chance of winning. This strategy has a 66% chance of occurring in one of the drawings.


These are just two of the most practical and commonly used strategies in increasing your chances of winning. If you want to have better chances, there are other ways that will require some additional steps and careful planning.
