That does it, I'm going to write my own book about winning the lottery.

My methods haven't won any big jackpots yet but when they do I'll already have the book written. (Pretty smart, eh?)

Some of my methods could be considered somewhat unconventional and maybe a little unorthodox but if they work, what the hell?

I'll give you one little tease from the book:

 

"Some of my biggest wins have come when writing down numbers that came to me while in a drunken stupor while my wife was screaming about something or another and beating me with a broom."

 

You'll have to wait for the book to get the rest.

    Are you one of those lottery players who think other players should spend time developing strategies and software for playing lotteries and then set up a website to offer the fruits of their labor for free to anyone who wants it?  Have you ever done anything like that yourself?

    No, I don't think that and no I never have sold a strategy or system for playing the lottery.  But I just offered skeptic some advice that he probably would have been better off spending 40 bucks on quick picks for one game on one draw than spending 40 bucks on a booklet trying to win a lottery jackpot.  There are no guarantees on winning the jackpot when playing the lottery unless you play every combination available.

    This guy selling this system said "I can't just give it away", referring to his system.  Which is not true.  It's his system, if he wants to give it away, he can give it away.  If he was speaking truthfully he might have said, "I could just give it away, but I choose not to".  And if wanted to be even more truthful he could say "I  "I choose not to give it away because I want to make some money".  If he said that at least I could respect him for being honest.  Although I still wouldn't buy his system.

      I understand where your coming from but you forget that it's a CHOICE no one  has too buy any strategy but people  do because they've won money doing  or had no luck using other  methods of course not  all strategies aer gonna  help you win just like quick-picks aren't a guarantee. I USE too play quick-picks and NEVER won anything but  when I started using strategies,systems and software I started winning in the  daily games.Spending $40 on a system is no big deal  players  EASILY spend  more than  that on lottery tickets I've been  in line  too play and watched  people  put down $50-$100 on quick-picks  and they  DID NOT win.

        Yeah, and then there's that lady from Florida who just won from the Powerball with ONE ticket(this is posted in the lottery news here) she would buy casually every time she went shopping at Publix.  No system, no booklets, just a dollar and a dream is all it took.  I don't care what system you have(or don't have).There is no guarantee of winning the jackpot unless you buy up all the available combinations.  It is random how the numbers are drawn, you might as well play randomly.  Instead of spending the 40 bucks on a system you could buy actual tickets, picking the numbers or doing quick picks.

          I never  said a  particular method would  guarantee a  player would  win  a jackpot and your right the  only SOLID guarantee  is too buy all combinations  but we know that's not practical BUT there  are  ways too  put the  odds more  in  your favor by approaching the  game  in a strategic manner. I know because  I've done  that  myself  in the daily games but I don't think  playing  randomly is the  best or only way too go I use too play that way and NEVER won  anything until I started  using  a strategic approach which did help me hit the  numbers and more than once.What if a player  spent  the  money on  tickets  and a system?? you see there  are no GOLDEN rules when it comes too lottery  play whatever works is what a player  should use I use too  subsribe too Lotto-World Magazine years  ago and  it always  show cased players who won and what  methods they used.Quick-Picks,Lucky Numbers,Systems,Software and  Strategies all of these  methods worked but  they  won't  work for  everyone  that's why we have  CHOICES on how we wanna approach the  game.And  too be fair  playing RANDOMLY isn't a guarantee either I should know I tried and it didn't  work so I FOUND something that does  work

            I think this guy has a g0od chance at making a tidy sum on this venture.  He's gotten a lot publicity from winning so many times.  People who might buy into his system might think, "hey this guy one 7 times maybe I can too with his system.  Having won 7 times already brings credibility to his system.  A lot more credibility than some one who has never won trying to sell a system.  Also, he has gotten TV publicity which helps, plus who knows you tube and other lottery websites.  I think with any of these systems you have to spend a shipload of money to improve your chances.  But remember the woman who just won the powerball jackpot in florida, she said she just bought one ticket.  Unless she's lying, although it is possible.  Every once in a while I hear of people stopping in a gas station to fill up their tanks and buy a few dollars worth of tickets on a whim, win millions, then there are people with systems who systematically lose more than they win, spending so many hours and hours and dollars while others just throw a dollar or two down on a lark and win millions.  I think it's funny.  It shows the absurdity of it all.  How random and seemingly unfair it is.  You need luck.  A system is unnecessary, but you gotta have that luck stroke.

              WRONG that's  not the case with every system I see it's quite  obvious  you have no real  knowledge  of how system play works and I don't know why you  keep bringing up the  1 ticket winner  in FL that's nothing  new  people  do  that  a lot jsut  like  people  win spending $50 or  more  on quick-picks  it doesn't  matter  how  many tickets  you  buy 1 or 100 makes  no difference.That's  where your  wrong you don't know  how everyone plays that uses  a system and  another thing your not taking  in consideration are the  players  that bought quick-pick tickets or  played the same numbers for 15-20 yrs  and  finally won how much money did they lose before  winning?? whether it's a jackpot or daily game?? so you see the same can be said about quick-pick players  also the  problem with you  is your being unfairly biased  about this you can lose  more than you win from quick-picks just  like you can with a system and you don't have too spend LOTS of money  when using a system either.The same conditions apply  too  systems as with quick-picks  a quick-pick player can  spend a LOT  or a LITTLE bit of money and win just like with system players the  only difference  is that you cannot win  just spending a $1 using a system like you can with  a quick-pick that's the  only difference.And not everyone spends hours and hours using a system I don't it takes  me 20-30 minutes whenever I decide too play and I don't  play everyday and I ONLY spend anywhere from $5-$15 depending on how many combos I generate from my strategy so as you can see it's VERY reasonable.The way your talking it seems as if you think quick-picks are a better  choice when playing the games this is very naive  too beleive  because I know  for a FACT that isn't true I tried them myself for several  years and never won anything.If a system  is unecessary then so are  quick-picks but  quick-picks work just like  systems do just not for everyone I know a guy who won a jackpot using a program called LOTTO-CHEATAH and I've  hit the Cash 3 sevaral times  using "P34LOTTO"  so you can't  say it's absurd if people win using this method  of play I also have some friends  from GA that use Steve  Player systems and do  very well they  hit once or twice  a week boxed  or  straight LUCK play is for people that use  quick-picks,lucky numbers,guess,or  mark the  playslip  randomly INTELLIGENT  play is  for  people  that sit  down and analyse,study the numbers too figure  which ones are most like  too be drawn if  it was just LUCK then how come I NEVER  won  using quick-picks??? and won using system  picks?? there shouldn't have been  a difference if luck was  involved  so it's quite obvious my new approach made a difference I increased  my chances  by using a system.(Just curious have you won  anything  playing  lottery games??)

                My question is.....why did he wait to win 7 jackpots to "write a book"? Unless the "system" isn't working anymore and he's going broke? It just seems odd timing to me.

                  Some where I saw an excerpt from his report that said he had won six times, the report must have been updated after his last win and all the publicity.

                      I'm done talling about Lustig's "system" "Pick any numbers and play 10 cards and never change your numbers." If that's a system than use it, but I learned nothing from the booklet. I've been playing for many years, using my "system" that involves  having 300 Fantasy cards filled with my numbers. I'll pull out 5 to 10 cards at random and play them a couple times a week. I'll hit many 4 of 5's and when it's a rolldown I get $555.00. A while back the rpize would be over $1000 for a 4 out of 5, and I had to make the trip to the lottery office to collect. I did that around 7 times. I'll change  the numbers on the cards when it's a 4 out of 5. The problem is I have too many cards (dont laugh!) I have circled panels on the cards that had 5 out of 5. Had I played the right cards, I would have won Fantasy 6 times in the past 2 years ! But having too many cards is the problem. I'm trimming down the number so I can handle them.

                      I used to play only quick picks a while back. Terrible luck. Yet I know 3 people who won Fantasy playing quick picks. I know one guy who bought 20 PowerPlay quick picks with the extra - he got the 5 balls and won #1M. ($200 K times 5. The Powerball # was one line below his 5 out of 5. One time I played LOTTO and did the birthday number thing. I got 5 out of 6!!! I couldn't believe it. I have no idea of what really works. I tried wheeling and what not. Poor results.

                      To me the whole ting is to have fun and not to get addicted to playing. I know one guy who lost all of his money, his wife, his house. He played 4 to 5K a WEEK ! He never won a jackpot either.

                      My history on scratch offs is well OK, but I spent a lot. I would go to different stores and buy 3 at a time. I think each book has a winner, so I change locations hoping to get better odds. I won 14 $500's on Billionaire. Five $1000's. Bough two of those $5 dollar Full House tickets, one was a $1000 !! A woman down the street from me won $15,000 on that same game a month ago.

                      I'm done buying scratch offs and as I said, toss out the too many Fantasy cards I have. Maybe keep 100 and pull out a few a few times a week. I fill out the cards starting with a one. Next card with a two, then 3, four and 5. I add the balance of numbers with no special way, but I'll use certain numbers several times on each card.

                      Its' fun being on here reading who says what. Good Luck to all of you, whatever way you play. Just keep playing or you'll never have a chance to win.

                        "SKEPTIC"

                        That's what I like about playing lottery games "ANYTHING" goes there is  no magic bullet too help you win  just about every lottery winner won using a different method quick-picks,lucky numbers,guessing,randomly marking numbers on a playslip,systems,strategies and software

                          Yeah, and then there's that guy from West Virgina, Jack Whittaker who won the largest single Powerball jackpot ever with a $100 worth of tickets(that was posted in the lottery news here).  He owned a construction company so he could afford to buy a few tickets when ever he played.  He knew there weren't any guarantees but he knew if he didn't buy a ticket it wouldn't matter what system he used.  Instead of spending that 100 bucks on lottery tickets, he could have given it to the poor cause after he won over $200 millions the poor wanted more than a 100 bucks from him.
