ORLANDO, Fl. - You need luck to win the lottery, at least that's the conventional wisdom. But a Florida man says that's nonsense.
He's won seven grand prizes over the years, including one jackpot for more than $800,000.
And he says there's a method to his money-making.
Richard Lustig says first, set a budget, and figure out what you can afford.
If its ten dollars, he says buy ten one dollar tickets. But here's what's important.
“You buy ten tickets in a row of the same game, do not spread it out over three or four games,” he said. “If you buy 10 tickets in a row of the same game, almost every single time you do that, you’re going to find a winning ticket.”
Of course, even with his advice, no one can guarantee you'll win the lottery.
