No need to buy the book, just buy more tickets with the money instead. The books basic info-buy a lot of tickets and play the same numbers every week.(I just saved you $40). How did this guy win so much? There is no system or secret. He spends a lot of money on tickets. But keeps reminding the readers to only spend what they can afford. Sorry. If you must read it, wait until it gets to your library.
I found this book in my local library and quickly read through it. After reading the very basic and often misleading advice in the book (play more numbers, buy more tickets, play the same numbers each time, etc), here's my advice: Don't buy or waste your time (all 20 minutes of it) reading this book. Here's why.
- The lottery is a probability game. There is NO WAY to be an 'expert' at beating the system. If I flip a coin 100 times, and I call it correct 74 times, does that make me an expert on how to call a coin flip correctly? Of course not...if anything, I am lucky. Each ball in a lottery machine has the same odds of showing up. So you could see a winning number repeat before you see your numbers come up. That is where his 'play the same numbers' advice is flawed. He makes you think that you are a lock to win by playing the same numbers over and over. Hard reality: Mathematics and probability say you are not a lock even if you play the same numbers for your entire life. - Lustig has won 7 jackpots, yet his winnings are never described as being much more than $1 million. Why? Because he wins games that have better odds (pick 3's, pick 4's, etc), and just plays a lot. He can't win any 'bonus ball' game because it throws a HUGE wrench into how he plays. And, again to the coin flip example. If we flip 100 times, I call it correct 7 times, am I an expert? Far from it. Just think how many lottery games Lustig has played and NOT won. If he wants to claim his expertise, I'd like to see him break down what he's paid vs. what he's won from the lottery (for example, how much money he invested in playing before he hit each jackpot). - His advice is simple, at best, and common sense, at worst. It comes down to this: play more. How is that advice to win?Read more ›
Forty pages for forty dollars. Surely this guy was a member of the US Congress at one time. If you are willing to invest money like this I suggest you invest this money in a Polar Bear Zoo project in Kenya. I am the treasurer.
My Hubby purchased this book for me after I put it on my amazon wishlist because I saw ths guy on television. It's like fool's gold. You purchase something at a high price hoping for a "big win." The American dream, especially in this economy. But, in this economy, the Charlatans' come out to play. It's a shame. I see this on t.v, newspapers, etc. all the time, where people get taken advantage of. "Pay XX ammount of money, and we'll release these funds." I was always amazed at how people fall for these scams... until now. We spent $40.00 for 40 pages. And the pages have alot of white space in them. Remember school? The teacher would tell you they want 2 pages of a report and you or some other kid (cause certainly you or I never did that! HA HA) would use really big letters or extra fluff words to make it seem like it was more then it really was. Funny how the teacher always caught on! :) I honestly figured that 40 pages was 40 pages. The book looked big on the outside. Which to me, is another part of being taken advantage of. I guess it's a good example of "Don't judge a book by it's cover." As to the actual content. It's basic stuff you allready know. Use the same numbers, buy alot of tickets all the time... etc. I'm sure there are alot of people, worse for wear, that followed this method all the way to Gambler's Anonymous. I'm sure they made some money. Enough for their dues, anyway. Lesson Learned for me. Thankfully I can return this book per Amazon's return policy. It'a interesting to me that this guy, (the author) and his family, won alot of money. With all that money, why did he feel it so neccessary to take advantage of others by making even more money in this way? He could have charged an appropriate ammount for the book.Read more ›
The title says it all!!! I'm not sure what I expected, maybe stats, some math to support he's process but I feel totally raped. The book is barely over 30 pages at $37.00 and is not worth it. So, let me sum up his advice: 1. Don't play more than you can afford. 2. Scratch offs - keeps buying tickets and re-invest your winning and buy a un-opened batch of scratch - offs (oh, and read the rules to the game) 3. Lotto and such - Dont change your numbers keep playing the same numbers and oh, the more you buy the better your chances... Duh!!!!
This book is a scam and i am very surprised that amazon is selling it. dont waste your money. there is no secret 26 pages with the first 7 pages all about his family winning. the last 2 pages nothing. and in between lets just say nothing to write about. all you need is your common sense. He doesnt have a secret noone can predict how the numbers will fall. DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY. i am getting my money back....
