The best way to play PowerBall from Europe!
In the state of Florida, if you have a winning ticket that is worth less than $600, your local merchant can cash it in for you, but if it's worth more than $600, you have to take it to the lottery office to cash it in. Lustig has been to the Florida Lottery offices an amazing 23 times. "I won my first grand prize and then I won my second and then my third," Lustig said. "And when I won my fourth grand prize, that's when I knew even though nobody believed me, that I had a method and it was working." In all, Lustig said he's won big seven times, with his last win being $98,000. His highest been a whopping $840,000. So, in this article, we are sharing some secrets of Powerball winners which they apply when making their draws.
Rule No. 1: Set a budget. Do not spend money you don't have, because, according to Lustig, it's easy to get the fever and eventually you will be playing with your lottery winnings.
Rule No. 2: Richard Lustig said scratch-ticket players should not buy different types of tickets. As an example, if your budget is $100, and you're playing a $10 scratch-off game, buy 10 tickets in a row from the same roll. If you do that, there will usually be at least one winner in that stack.
Rule No. 3: This is for the popular ball games like Fantasy 5 and Powerball, which can yield big paydays. Lustig said quick picks are the worst thing you can do.
Rule No. 4: Pick your own numbers and stay with them. Don't ever change any of those numbers, ever. And don't miss a drawing on that game. If it's twice a week, play those set of numbers every time.
Rule No. 5: Stay Away From Birthdays. Lottery newcomers are likely to fill out their tickets with birthdays, anniversaries, and other significant dates. But limiting yourself to these numbers decreases your chances of winning, Lustig says. Powerball requires you to pick five numbers between 1 and 69, but if you’re only choosing numbers between 1 and 31 (the number of days in a month), you’re not even playing more than half of your options.
Leave Luck Out of It: If you wish Lustig good luck before a lottery drawing, he’ll tell you he doesn’t need it. Just like anything else you’re new to, you should become informed before sitting down to play, he says: “If you’re at a friend’s house, and everyone says ‘Let’s play Monopoly!’ and you don’t know how to play, the first thing you’re going to do is ask them how to play.”
Don’t Fall for Lottery Scams: If you receive a phone call, a letter, or an email saying you’ve won 75 million dollars, and all you have to do is send in $2,500, don’t fall for it. “You can’t win a lottery that you didn’t buy a ticket in,” Lustig says. Additionally, you should never have to send in money before you receive your winnings.
