This is the standard way cards are used to pick numbers:

Take a pack of cards and give it a good shuffle. Take a card at random. Any card. Turn this into a lottery number by this method:

1. Take the number of the card; Spades = ace=1, 2=2, 3=3 ... 10=10, jack=11, queen=12, king=13.

2. Add 13 if it's a Hearts,  26 if it's a Clubs or 39 if it's a Diamond.

I found this in an old book, quite a different numbering method. Some of the numbers are over lotto matrixes, just discard them and pick another card, or take out any card over the max matrix number for the game you are going to play beforehand.

Hearts

Ace = 22

King = 21

Queen = 24

Jack = 23

Joker = 20

Ten = 66

Nine= 11

Eight = 6

Seven = 9

Six = 33

Five = 14

Four = 13

Three = 3

Two = 99

Diamonds

Ace = 1

King = 18

Queen =  17

Jack = 5

Joker = 55

Ten = 17

Nine= 80

Eight = 70

Seven = 35

Six = 62

Five = 77

Four = 12

Three =  44

Two = 83

Clubs

Ace = 10

King = 36

Queen = 27

Jack = 30

Joker = 69

Ten = 72

Nine = 88

Eight = 26

Seven = 3

Six = 15

Five = 2

Four = 51

Three = 39

Two = 93

Spades

Ace = 29

King = 79

Queen = 61

Jack = 38

Joker =73

Ten = 91

Nine = 74

Eight = 11

Seven = 58

Six = 40

Five = 92

Four = 13

Three = 93

Two =52

Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

The highest nunmber of any game I play is 59 in Powerball.

Eliminating all cards over 59 you would discard all Jokers (like I said, this is an old book, I can't recall seeing a deck wirh Jokers of each suit)

Two and ten of Hearts, two, five, eight and nine of Diamonds, two, nine and ten of Clubs, and the three, ten, queen and king of Spades.

If you're playing a game with a smaller matrix, of the cards you have remaining if one is over that matrix just discard it and pick another card within the matrix for the game played.

You could also get a deck for each game you play.
