“Win” we all want to Win. Win money, Win Prizes, you name it. We all would like to be able to enter to Win those prizes. A man by the name of Richard Lustig of Orlando Florida sure knows what it is like to Win. He has won the lottery 7 times. Yes, it is true. Can you imagine saying I win 7 times and winning thousands of dollars? Let’s see “I Win, I Win, I Win, I Win, I Win, I Win, I Win” It sure sounds good but does not have the same meaning without the cash in front you. Lustig says “luck has nothing to do with it”. He advises treating the lottery like it is a job. You want to play each and every week. Playing smart each week includes sticking to a budget and only buying the amount of tickets you can afford. The last thing you want to do when you are trying to Win is waking up Thursday morning and realize you’re a loser. Then you find yourself going crazy trying to replace the money you spent.
Here are four rules Lustig says to stick to if you want to Win:
- You want to pick your own numbers instead of having the machine do it for you.
- Do your homework and see if your numbers have won before. Select ten sets of numbers and stick to those if you continue buying tickets. Buy as many tickets as you can possibly afford. (Do not mortgage your house though.)
He also says to always pick the same numbers and never play Quick Picks. When you play Quick Picks, your odds are always going to be at their worst. Lustig highly recommends staying away from sequences that have already come up before. Again, luck has absolutely nothing to do with it. When you take a step back and really think about it. How can anybody say this guy has won seven times, that he is just a lucky person. The odds of being that lucky?
The chances of winning the Powerball are something like this: a person is more likely to fall out of a plane, become president of the United States, drown in a bathtub than score a winning ticket. As you can see the odds are not in your favor to Win.
Lustig claims to play every day, but in the first few years, he says he was not winning very much. That is when he decided to come up with a method, which he claims has helped him win seven grand prizes, including his last jackpot of $98,000 a couple of years ago..
One guaranteed way to increase your chances of winning the lottery is by picking your own numbers versus using the “Quick-Pick” option. Quick Picks are the lazy way out. The computer picks out the numbers for you. Don’t play quick-picks. Quick-picks are the worst thing you can do, you are playing with the worst odds.There is no trick to how you pick your numbers. However, once you pick your set of numbers, research them to know if they are a good set of numbers and stick with them.
Lustig believes that what matters is whether the set of numbers people pick is a good one or not. To know this out however, one has to research the numbers in a method only taught in his book. He says the research is not that easy and it does take some time. Like the old saying, anything in life that is worth having takes time.
One secret Lustig has shared is that he believes picking the same numbers regularly, even if you are losing. It gives you more edge in the next drawing.
When you play the lottery make sure read the rules. Every state has a selection of lottery games with different odds of winning. Read the odds before you spend the money to ensure you’re maximizing your chances of winning. Playing lottery games like Powerball and MegaMillions are national lotteries. They have a much bigger entry pool so your chances to Win are less. The better odds are with State lotteries where you have to be physically present to purchase a ticket.
The easiest way to boost your odds of winning lotteries is pretty simple. The more tickets you buy the better your odds. That of course costs money but but the fact it no matter how many tickets you buy and the amount you invest, the odds are still stacked against you. Lottery pools give you a much better chance to Win, along with improving your odds without spending more money. If you place of work has a lottery pool that is a good place to start. If there is not one you might want to think about starting one yourself.
If you are lucky enough to Win the lottery, the last thing you want to do is let the prize slip through your fingers, literally. If you Win, the very first thing you should do after you receive a lottery ticket, even before you know whether it’s a winner or not, is to sign it. Then make a couple copies of both sides it. Your signature on the back of a lottery ticket can help prove it’s yours. Even if your ticket gets lost or stolen. Never hand over the original ticket to a clerk at a lottery location and ask if you’ve won. Give them a copy you made or just ask for the winning numbers. It would be very easy for the clerk to pocket your ticket and tell you it was a loser.
There are many scams out there that like to capitalize on desperate people who play to Win the lottery. Here are some tips to follow to avoid scams:
- Only buy tickets from authorized lottery retailers.
- It is not legal to sell lottery tickets across national borders.
- If you didn’t buy a lottery ticket or participate in a second-chance lottery game, you didn’t win.
- Unlike a Sweepstakes, a lottery doesn’t notify you when you win. It is up to you to check and see if you have the winning tickets.
- If you are ever asked to pay any money upfront (With the exception of buying the lottery ticket.) NEVER pay money up-front to receive a winning lottery prize.
Good luck and we hope you Win big!
