Default Strategies for picking hot hobby boxes?

What are you're guys strategies/superstitions for picking hot hobby boxes in person? Ive heard of using your lucky number and matching with the last few digits of the serial code and ive heard that there isn't one set strategy, its all based on LUCK.

What do you guys think?

Ok, let me be more SUPER-SPECIFIC. I meant to say boxes with hits you will actually want or can make money off of. Better?

And actually, there are such things as "hot boxes" and its probably a collating mistake, but some boxes do come with more than average number of hits in them.

Do you really think there is a strategy to picking good boxes? It is all luck. Nothing else.
