Technically no! There are no reliable methods to guarantee winning. Even with exceptional calculation skills, you can only calculate the odds and probabilities, but you cannot do anything in order to get a jackpot.

You can find several articles saying you should not play at all, and that this is the only guarantee you won’t lose money. But this cannot be the way, if you want to have fun, though: play the lottery to feel the rush, but never create any artificial strategies that can help you win!
