Tonight is the record $500 million Powerball drawing and chances are it’ll be even more than that.  Here are 5 tips from Yahoo to help you increase your chances at winning!

Your odds of winning are one in 175 million and while those aren’t great,  we’ve got a little advice that might increase those odds just a little bit.

Here are five expert tips for winning tonight’s Powerball from Yahoo.  Keep in mind we can’t guarantee that using these will make you win, but they might!

#1.) Don’t let the machine pick random numbers. Customized numbers have the same chance of winning and those numbers are lucky to you, so why not try them?

#2.) Don’t pick the overly popular lucky numbers, like 7 or numbers under 31, because those could be birthdays. The more people that have those numbers means you could end up splitting the jackpot with them. You’re hoping you have obscure numbers and they hit and you are the solo winner.

#3.) The only way to increase your real odds is by buying more tickets.

#4.) Don’t pick the same number for the Powerball every time, mix it up.

#5.) Make sure if you’re in a lottery pool, you send photo proof of the tickets you bought for the group and ones you bought for yourself.
