Advice From Business Insider
You should note before I go on that it also states and I quote “While his scheme was legal at the time, new laws in the US and Australia render Mandel’s scheme impossible nowadays. You can no longer buy lottery tickets in bulk and print your tickets at home — two key parts of Mandel’s formula.”
So without further ado Here’s the 6-step formula basically involves you purchasing all the combinations or tickets possible in a given lottery. I tend to find this a bit out of reach for most of us. So no longer is it doable, but its illegal according to the article. So why push this on us and pay for advice that is illegal? I don’t know but that is up to you, for all that effort he pocketed $97,000 after a $1.3 million win in 1987. What has been won since? is my question.

The article we found was by Thebalanceeveryday.com titled “How to Win the Lottery: 7 Tips that Really Work No Schemes! Common-Sense Lottery-Winning Tips” BY June 17, 2018
It begins with the assertion that throughout the internet there are a lot of tips that don’t work. I would agree with that assessment. because there are quite a bit of really not so well thought out ideas on how to win the lottery. However, she does make several good points. I would recommend you read it.
The points that are made in this article are these :
- There is no way of predicting the numbers that will come up. Lotteries are completely random
- Pick unusual numbers so you won’t have to split the winnings.
- Lottery Software is no better at picking numbers
The article goes on about common sense tips. Like knowing the odds of the game you are going to play so you have a better opportunity of winning. This makes sense. Participate in lottery pools. True, there is power in numbers. the other piece of advice we found useful was to beware of lottery scams. You can read about these and more at the end of the article which is found here
The method from Mr. Lustig is to pick your own numbers versus the quick pick. This is good advice we support this you should use a wheeling system every time you play. He also suggests to keep playing the same set of numbers every time. We are not sure about this advise but he claims that he has won seven times. So who am I to judge. Next he suggests you research the numbers you picked to see if they are “good” numbers using his method. But of course you can only find what this method is by purchasing his book. So if you would like research your number then buy his book. I personally do not believe too much but again who am I to argue, I haven’t read his book. I rather believe in combinatoric systems commonly known as wheeling systems to win the lottery.
