With another year come and gone it’s time to reflect on the year but more importantly acknowledge that with a brand New Year comes a rebirth and a chance to start anew. Whether it’s a resolution to lose weight, find love or make more money we are all striving to better our lives.
As online lottery players, what could be better than starting the New Year with a bank balance that will give you the opportunity to fulfil your wildest New Year's resolutions? Well, for starters playing any of the available international lotto games right here at PlayUSALotteries will give you just that. The opportunity to make millions!
We've put together a few positive steps for online lottery players that they can put into place in the New Year in order to make playing the game easier, more enjoyable and possibly a whole lot more lucrative.
Always play the lottery online
As you know by now, playing your favourite international lottery game online is safer and more convenient than buying a lottery ticket from a corner store. Furthermore, those playing the lottery online are automatically notified of a win whereas players who choose to purchase a ticket from a retailer might lose their ticket or forget to check it. So whatever you do, make sure you keep purchasing your lottery tickets online. If the Mega Millions jackpot of $1.6 billion was anything to go by, 2019 will definitely be even better!
Span your lottery entries
If you regularly play the lottery using your favourite lucky lottery numbers, it's a good idea to take advantage of the Span -your-entries play option on the various play blocks. This extremely handy feature allows you to play your numbers in advance. This is a great way to avoid the last-minute rush or that dreaded panic if you've forgotten to buy a lottery ticket.
Check and claim your lottery wins promptly
A great habit to develop as an online lottery player here at PlayUSALotteries is to regularly check the latest lottery numbers, either via your results mailer or under the Lotto Results tab and claim any prizes immediately.
Many big winners have spent months unaware of the valuable lottery winnings safely tucked away in their lotto accounts and have continued to live in an unnecessarily frugal way.
Remember, those winning substantial lotto prizes will receive a telephonic call informing them of their wins. However, the same cannot be said for those playing the lottery the old fashioned way offline. In 2013 EuroMillions winner Jane O'Brien carried a £1 million winning ticket around for three months, all the while working double shifts in an attempt to save for a holiday. Had she checked her ticket promptly, Jane could have jetted off so much sooner!
If you already do all of the above, then we congratulate you on your conscientious approach to playing the lottery online and encourage you to continue as normal. For those of you who aren't yet employing one or more of the above measures, consider making it a lottery New Year's resolution – it might just earn you a fortune.

One of the best ways to keep up to date with all things lotto is to subscribe to our newsletters. By doing so, you will also be privy to some astounding special offers that will give you the opportunity to not only enter even more entries and therefore increase your odds of winning the jackpot but you will be reminded to play your lucky numbers and not miss the draw.

With a New Year comes the chance to look forward to a better future, so don’t be too hard on yourself if winning the jackpot takes longer than expected. For online lottery players who aren’t happy with their careers etc., you could always take the New Year as an opportunity to reinventing yourself. This could give you a whole new perspective on life and take you in directions you may never have dreamed were possible.
A few other New Year’s resolutions every person should consider are:
Be a better listener
Unfortunately, in today’s fast-paced world, most people hardly listen with the intent to understand. When we are listened to, it makes us unfold and expand. This is not only true in our social lives but in business too. It doesn’t matter who you are, where you work, what your goals are or what you’ve done up to this point. Universally, you have an inherent advantage if you are a better communicator. On a team, you’ll have fewer miscommunications and stronger influence. As an employee, you’ll carry more influence and respect from your bosses and supervisors. As an entrepreneur, you’ll have an easier time managing employees, updating your partners and investors and even securing new clients. All these strengths will give your business an edge in a number of different areas, simultaneously.
Become a better time manager
How many times this year have you thought to yourself that you have so much to do and you have so little time? As we know, time is an invaluable asset, so learning where to expend energy, and where not to, will have innumerable benefits to you. You will end up relieving stress, enjoy more free time, and make fewer mistakes and improve your productivity.
Make an effort with co-workers
We spend a massive amount of time with the people we work with, but how well do you really know them? Building friendships in the workplace can actually relieve stress or tension in the office. So, forget the outdated theory that you need to keep your personal life and professional life separate. We’re not living in the dark ages, so take the time and effort to get to know each other.
Don’t hold grudges
There is nothing worse than living your life holding onto a grudge. It’s toxic, so make sure you toss the demons away as more than likely that the person you have an issue with isn’t even giving you a second thought. So why waste your precious time mulling over them instead you should strengthen relationships with your family. Start 2019 by getting rid of ‘enemies’ and if it was you that was in the wrong, apologize and move forward. Look ahead and forgive and forget.
Try new foods
It is 2019, a new year and a new you! They say, ‘variety is the spice of life’ so why not take the time and explore new culinary traditions this year. Think of it as preparing yourself for all the exotic countries you could visit if you win the lottery. Trying new dishes can be fun and engaging. You could also simply try a new recipe now and again. Learning to give something new a try is a lesson that will take you far in life.
Get enough sleep
A large majority of people report for work in the new year having made a resolution. The most common goals are losing weight, exercising more, quit smoking, spending less or saving more, improving one’s health, personal growth and enjoying life more. But, one of the most important New Year’s resolutions is the one resolution most likely to make all the others easier to accomplish and that is to get enough sleep.
Even a jackpot lottery winner has to sleep sometime, which is why, now that New Year’s Eve has come and gone, it’s time we all make sure that we start getting enough sleep this year. By making sure you get at least seven hours sleep you will be decreasing your stress levels, increase alertness and find day to day life far more pleasurable.
Make time for exercise
Aaah… the dreaded one. More exercise! But you knew it was coming. However, just 20 minutes a day of moderate exercise will boost your energy levels, improve your mood and by doing a little exercise you will not only feel good but look great - younger, fitter and thinner. After all, you don’t want to be like this fellow below after winning the lottery, now do you?
Take a trip
There’s no better way to improve your emotional health and positive attitude than taking a vacation. We all need a break from our everyday lives from time to time and by getting away for a while you will be able to refresh your brain and thereby be equipped to deal with the year ahead.
Be kind to yourself
Kindness is the engine that drives us to keep trying even after we fall flat on our face. So this New Year, if you break your resolutions, instead of beating yourself up and then giving up, try being kind to yourself. In the long run, you’ll be more likely to succeed.
We’re only human and we need to remember that it’s OK to make mistakes along the way.
- Cross something off your bucket list. Skydive, bungee jump, swim with the sharks or join that dance lesson.
- Stop hating yourself for eating dessert. A piece of birthday cake is a celebration, not a curse. Keep a journal. It doesn’t have to be something you use daily, but documenting your experiences is incredibly important. You’ll appreciate it later.
- “Pay it forward,” do good things for the world.
Turn off your smartphone at dinner and never check your Twitter/Facebook feed when you’re with friends.
New Year's Resolutions are often made to help us improve ourselves or refine our habits. We've put together a few positive steps online lottery players can take at New Year in order to make playing the game easier, more enjoyable and possibly more lucrative.
