Stubborn luck wins lottery player $600,000

We all have our own quirky ways of choosing our lucky numbers. In fact, we all have quirky ways of doing things, and we share them with many other people in the world. Just like rubbing a coin for luck before putting it into a stubborn machine, a man from Chicago had his own quirky way of making his winning numbers get lucky – he played them for 10 years in a row! Read further to discover how these stubborn numbers helped him get his longed-for payday, and whether you should do the same to increase your chances too.

The man by the name of Kenneth Kostecka, age 51, won a $600,000 lottery prize for the Lucky Day Lotto in Illinois, USA. Kenneth’s ticket matched all five principal numbers: 03, 07, 17, 22, 30 in the draw of March 1st of this month. 

“I randomly picked the 10 years ago and have believed in them ever since,” said Kenneth Kostecka.

Kenneth says he plans to use his new winnings to renovate his house and travel as much as he can with what he has. He bought his winning ticket at New England Pharmacy, on the 6900 block of Archer Avenue. It just goes to show that buying that lottery ticket was good for his vitality! Kenneth now has plenty of that with his new winnings.

The pharmacy received a bonus of $6,000 for selling the winning ticket. 

And now, the question you’ve all been waiting for: “Should I play the same lottery numbers in every draw?”


This is one of those questions which can make your head spin. If you over-think it, it’ll start to feel like your brain is being turned inside-out. Like many online lottery players on, you might have thought to yourself at least once: “If my numbers haven’t come up yet, maybe they have more of a chance to win in the future. I should stick to playing my selected, trusted numbers, right?” You also may have asked yourself, “If I keep changing my lottery numbers, doesn’t that make the odds harder since they keep changing?”

All of these questions are very normal. And both of the reasons behind them sound plausible. But sometimes we have a knack for over-analysing problems to the point of driving ourselves insane!

The fact of the matter is, your past results have no effect whatsoever on future results. They simply cannot. Because what we tend to forget, is that behind those lucky numbers is actually a ball spinning around in a machine at the mercy of the law of physics, and whichever one gets chosen has absolutely nothing to do with whether that number is lucky or not. (Even if they seem to make those pretty patterns when you really look deeply into the results.)



Which brings us back to the main question: Is it better to play the same lottery numbers every week?

Each draw is a unique and random event. It really doesn’t matter whether you play the same numbers or change them every week.  It makes no difference and you shouldn’t let it bother or worry you. Just choose what feels right to you personally. If you like security and comfort, then play the same numbers. If you like thrill and the unknown, then choose at random.
Each set of numbers always has the same odds of being drawn. It’s as simple as that. So if you like the numbers you’ve chosen by all means keep them and play them every time. It won’t do you any harm at all. But also, on the other hand, if you enjoy changing your number selection now and again, or in every single draw – feel free to do so because that won’t hurt either. 

We wish you the best of luck with your newfound choice!

Play to Win!

I personally don't have the patience to be relying on the same numbers every week. I would have given up after a week or two. I don't have that much attachment to lottery numbers, its a luck game and your full set might never ever come up.

Yes we Should play the same lottery numbers by adding 1 or 2 Adding different in every draw

Sometime back HL published a story how a man by repeating the same numbers that won him the France Lotto Jackpot, won it for a second time after some three years I think, Winning a lottery is purely a matter of luck and chance. Right instinct at the right moment helps one to choose the right numbers which win a jackpot or a big prize.
