Lustig’s Lottery Secrets

Richard Lustig says playing the lotto to win is about playing a smart game. He actually wrote a book about but can a book really show you how to win the lottery?

Lustig believes it can!

He states that many people believe that simply buying more tickets is enough to improve their chances. But, statistically, buying a heap more tickets does not improve your chances at all as each individual ticket has these same crap chance of winning the lottery super prize as another.

There are much better lotto strategies than this.

However, playing scratch-offs is a different matter.

With a 1 in 4 chance of winning all you have to do is buy all your tickets at the same time and from the same store and same roll. Don’t spend $20 on different scratch-off tickets. Buy all the same ones.

This means you are almost guaranteed to have 1 or 2 winners among the 20 tickets – statistically you should have 5 winning tickets (as there is a 1 in 4 chance of having a winning lottery ticket).

Start using this approach from now on when you buy scratch-offs and you will start winning much more often.

Obviously this approach does not work when it comes to winning the lottery jackpot in the normal draw. For that type of game you need a different approach.

Most often multiple prize winners claim to have used wheeling systems to achieve their wins. Wheeling is definitely something you should be doing if you are serious about winning on the lotto.

The only drawback to wheeling systems is the cost of entries. The more numbers you add to a lottery wheel the better are you chances of winning the lottery but the more expensive it becomes to play.

For this reason consider joining or starting up your own syndicate of lottery players so you can pool your money and make playing in this way affordable.
