Do you believe that winning the lottery is all about fortune and fate? Or, like Richard Lustig, do you believe that luck has nothing to do with it? With a Powerball jackpot sitting at $350 million would be the perfect time to investigate any potential magic formulas that may exist!
Richard is convinced he knows the secrets to winning big on the Powerball and he is willing to share them in his book, "Learn How To Increase Your Chances of Winning The Lottery." Is Richard just full of hot air or is there something of value to be taken from his lotto tips? Let’s take a look at some of this advice...
Richard Lustig’s Tips For Winning Powerball
With 7 big wins on Powerball, most recently a $98,000.00 pay day 2 years ago, it’s clear that Richard certainly knows something about stacking the odds in his favour. Is this a replicable strategy that everyone can utilize or is he simply born lucky?
Here are some basic tips that Richard is willing to share for free with us (for the more in-depth tips you will need to buy his book):
Always pick your own numbers – Avoid taking Quick-Picks. Richard refers to playing Quick-Picks as taking the “lazy way out.”
Don't play quick-picks. Quick-picks are the worst thing you can do, you are playing with the worst odds.
Well, we are not convinced about this one. You only have to look at the biggest lottery winners from 2012 so see that Quick-Picks are constantly resulting in giant lottery jackpot wins.
Always play the same numbers – Keep playing the same numbers over and over again. How do you know if your numbers are ‘good’? Well, you will need to buy his book to find that out.
We suspect that it may involve something to do with hot and cold numbers.
Treat it like a job – Playing the lottery is meant to be 100% fun but if you are serious about winning then treat it like a job, meaning: play each and every week, don’t miss a draw and ensure you stick to your budget.
Some other tips Richard suggests are to team up with friends in a lottery pool and to play at least ten lines per draw - remember, you must play the SAME ten lines for every draw.
Reliable Strategy or Wishful Thinking?
Is Richard Lustig simply a con-man preying on people who don't understand the fundamental nature of randomness? Or, with 7 big Powerball prizes under his belt, is there something legitimate to his strategy?
Secret strategies aside, there is one undisputable truth when it comes to winning the lottery - The surest way to increase your odds of winning is to buy more tickets. Richard agrees with this and advises everyone to buy as many tickets as they can afford. Remember to ‘treat it like a job’ and never spend more than your allotted playing budget.
