We have been following with interest the story of a seven time lottery winner on the internet. The story has appeared in sites like The Huffington Post and various other publications so we though that we would take a peek. For your convenience we have linked to the Huffington Post Lottery Winner Video here.
It must be stated beforehand that we are not believers in lottery systems or using a particular type of methodology to increase the odds of winning a lottery. This is all smoke and mirrors in our opinion. If your numbers come up, then it is a matter of pure chance.
For your numbers to come up you would have to play a lottery game, or you would stand no chance of winning the lottery. If you read the article it goes on to describe how this man, Richard Lustig has gone on to win amounts on the lottery seven times over a period of twenty years.
In the video he goes on to state a few basics that lottery players should abide by and for the most part most lottery players stick to.
Rule Number 1 is Do not buy Quick Picks. Select your numbers and stick with them. The methodology behind this is that eventually your numbers will come up as the law of averages kick in. We would say select numbers and choose a Quick Pick as well as numerous huge lottery wins have come via the route of the Quick Pick.
Rule Number 2 is when buying scratch cards, buy ten of them in a row. Don’t mix and match. If you are buying ten scratch cards then chances are that you are going to win on one of the tickets, even if it is just getting your money back. No big secret there then but a common sense approach it is.
Rule number 3 is the golden rule. Allocate a budget and don’t spend money you don’t have. As per the Lottery video, try not to develop lottery fever. This is harder said than done when there are massive lottery jackpots, but it is the most critical rule there is.
The odds of winning any lottery are massive and to gain a small edge is great, it does remain a small edge though so it is perhaps best to treat any lottery or scratch card game as a bit of fun and not a profession.
Oh and the final bit on Richard Lustig the Seven time lottery winner just in case you did not view the video. He has a book for sale revealing the secrets of how to win the lottery. Now there is a surprise.
The one indisputable fact that Richard did present is that if you are not in the Lottery, there is no way to win the lottery. So making a purchase of a lottery ticket is the most critical element. I don’t think we need a book to tell us that.
