Tips for picking Mega Millions winning lottery numbers

Bmoney070111_optY BOB HOLT

The odds of winning tonight’s $363 million Mega Millions lottery jackpot are about 1 in 175 million. But someone is going to have to win this thing eventually, and whoever finally does is thinking they don’t have a prayer to win either right now. Just like most of us.

A lot of players use their own strategies to pick numbers. Richard Lustig of Florida spent a lot of time studying how to win. Lustig won his first lottery prize of $10,000 in 1992. He has won six other times since.

According to ABC News, Lustig’s biggest win was for $842,000 in 2002. He even wrote a 40-page book, "Learn How to Increase Your Chances of Winning the Lottery," describing his strategy.

Some of Lustig’s ideas include, according to Yahoo! News, choosing your own numbers as opposed to letting the machine pick them for you, doing research to be sure your chosen numbers have not been drawn before, committing to your numbers, and not overspending.

Gail Howard, who wrote "Lottery Master Guide," suggests mixing up your numbers, avoiding picking all odd or all even numbers, and not playing patterns or diagonals on your lottery card.

Howard recommends playing games with lower odds, saying to the New York Daily News, “It's easier to win $100,000 in Take 5(played in New York) than in Powerball and Mega Millions, because the odds are one in half a million, instead of one in tens of millions." says to play the games with the lower number of balls in their selection pool, or games played with the lower number of balls, like Jersey Cash 5. They also advise players to select their own numbers.

And considering recent news, it’s always wise to get the terms of any office lottery pools put in writing.

My name is Mary Virgili i am from new mexico. I recently contact a voodoo doctor called Lord Diva through a friend description, i was in debt and my mom was suffering from skin cancer and no money for her treatment and my husband lost his job and thing became worse for us. But when i was going through the internet i saw a guy who make a comment regarding how he use the help of Lord Diva who gave him the lottery number he played with and win, So out of frustration i say to myself i need to give it a try and i contacted him too on the email and he gave me the necessary information and i agree to the rules and regulation and he gave me the lottery numbers and told me to play and believe me i won $445,000 it was like a dream and i was so surprised when he told me the only thing i need to do for him is to make sure i share with every other person this testimony. This is one of the best thing that has every happen to me in my life cause this is my first time ever to play lottery and i win. Lord is the only answer.

I am Miguel Florentino from New Mexico do not follow the tips all the lottery winner tell you they use cause it a big lie, cause the secret is spiritual voodoo. I was introduced to this spiritual voodoo priest called Dr. Soula and i was told he can help win the lottery I never believe it cause the distance where he satay is very far, He is from Africa and i see no reason to believe that this really but my friend out of alot of debt i still have to do it so as to pay back and sort out bills. I contacted him and he assure me just three days i but a ticket from a shop and played after he has cast a spell on the number i sent him. I was in my house when i was watching the result and my name was among winners i have been doing this for years and i never won but Dr. Soula prove it to me the voodoo works. I won $30,000 but the problem i have was that you can only use the spell once if not i would have order another spell to play for millions. This is the secret to success do not be deceive by online tips is the only answer you need

Mr Lusting Book
That book he wrote is crap. Many postings on from people who bought it, recommend people not to buy the book.
Its a 17 page book, which have the book talks about himself and his family.
His book doesnt even come close to Gail Howard;s excellent books.
Don't waste your money.
