Winning the lottery is just the beginning

SEVEN Time Big Lottery Winner in Florida Plans to Tell All; He Says He has a System. Let the Buyer Beware

Those of you who are regular readers of these postings know that I do not believe systems work. I always warn players against putting down their hard earned money on systems that simply exist to make the system designer money.

I’ve written two books on the lottery…one is shown on this page (still available). And I devote a few chapters on scams, etc.

If you surf the net, looking for interesting lottery sites, you’ll always find people hawking their systems.

Well, let me clue you in on something. I worked for the CA, MD, DC lotteries, among others, and if any number picking system worked, lotteries would be out of business. And they’re not. In fact, they’re making more money now, during this great recession, than ever.

So people selling systems (wheels are particularly popular and enticing because the basic theory of wheeling holds true) make their money selling systems, not winning the lottery.

Just keep that in mind because I ran across something recently that is pretty interesting.

An Orlando man is having a streak of incredible lottery luck.

Richard Lustig just cashed in on a winning Florida Lottery Fantasy 5 ticket worth nearly $100,000.

It’s the SEVENTH time he’s won a lottery grand prize and he told a local TV station in Orlando that he plans to keep on playing.

“You can win and I’ve proven it,” Lustig said.

Lustig said he had a special method to how he plays the lottery, but would not reveal his secret.

“I can’t just give it away. I have it printed out and I have been selling it to people.”

Uh oh. He wants to sell you his winning system? Let the buyer beware.

Lustig, who owns an entertainment company in Orlando, said he’s been perfecting his method of playing the lottery for years.

“My very first grand prize was just over 17 years ago, two weeks after my son was born,” he said.

We did do some fact checking with Florida. In 2008, Lustig hit the Fantasy 5 jackpot, winning more than $73,000. Six years earlier, he walked away with nearly $843,000 while playing Florida’s Mega Money.

Is he just lucky? Or does the sonofagun really have a system?

Lustig is writing a book about how he’s been able to win so many times, but now he says he will have to change the title.

“We had ‘6- time lottery grand prize winner,’ and we just scratched it out because, as of this week, it’s now seven,” he said.

Lustig said he did buy lottery tickets every day, but would not say how many or what kind. He says he’s also won thousands of small prizes while playing the lottery.

Hmmm. Stay tuned.

    Don’t buy the book. I heard it’s a waste of money. If you go to the major website that begins with an A and ends with N….read the reviews.

    I am not sure on all the facts. He said he has a system and he may have. He said he is a seven time lotto winner and this is true. From the information I have heard of and by no means fact, just hear say.

    1. He won the Fantasy 5 two or three times.
    2. He won the Mega-money one time.
    3. He won four second chance drawings, that are random drawings. Which usually means turning in a lot of losing tickets.
    4. Why would someone tell his method for a few dollars in book sales when he is making so much money with his system that he worked on for years.

    So he may have spent a lot of money which many of us can not afford. He has a lot of luck.

    One thing is sure, what ever he did or has is a lot better than I have done and the more power to him if he can sell his books to others. I my self would not buy it
