I am a lucky person. I have won dozens of trips around the world, gift cards, movie tickets, concert tickets, books, movies, cds etc etc etc...and was looking to get a few new tips. I am SHOCKED at the lack of information. IE to win a lottery he suggests buying a ticket. (ok the joke is old eh?) and then goes on and on about odds...using up pages..just to find that he lets the machine pick the numbers. The local lottery website gives the same stats....

The information is old. Several contest newsletters have been out of print for over five years. Save your money from this book and get a subscription to one of the excellent contest newsletters such as Bestweekly or Sweepstakes News.

Do you want to increase your chances of winning contests, lotteries and sweepstakes? If yes this is an excellent resource guide for you as you tangle through the mazes of chance. Steve Ledoux gives gives his reader clear and concise methods of increasing your chances in order to become a winner. He should know because he is a winner of numerous contests that have richly rewarded him.
The book gives a brief history of the games and explains how to maximize your chances. He also has chapters dealing with game shows, the IRS, frequently asked questions regarding winning contests and how to deal with your new found wealth. Reading this information helps you to know what to expect and prepare for it. He also includes web sites, addresses and other resources regarding the rules and regulations for lotteries in the different states.
You will no doubt ask the question, if I read this book will I win? Ledoux tells the reader that number one, you've got to play the game (buy the ticket, fill out contest form, etc.) Second, follow the instructions. Third, keep a positive attitude.
Fourth, remember this is a game of fun and yes, you will win but as with anything you must keep at it. Already I tried some of his principles and yep, I won. Give his book a try and come out more knowledgeable about these games of chance.

Format: Paperback
This book gives excellent tips on both sweepstakes and contests. It gives a good overall look at the world of entering valid sweepstakes and how to spot those which are bogus. The book is an entertaining read and stresses being positive and just having fun ! It also covers some interesting ideas regarding lotteries and game shows. There aren't many books on the subject and this covers the subject very well. It's made my sweeps entering more enjoyable.

I enjoyed Mr. Ledoux's excellent handling on the subject of lottery. His logical, easy-to-read approach makes this book fun to read, for both beginners and hardcore lottery players. It's interesting to read how some simple steps can improve one's chances of winning, be it the National Lotto or your local grocery store sweepstakes.

Format: Paperback
Although this book is not perfect, you'd have a hard time finding one that is. When the topic of wining sweepstakes, contests and lotteries comes up, it's hard to create a perfect system for winning all the time since they're based on randomizing the winning entry.

That said, the book does offer some useful tips on how to focus on the types of sweepstakes and contests that offer the best odds. The most important thing you will learn from this book is how to focus on sweeps with the best odds and how to give yourself a potential further advantage. Other than that, don't expect this book to give you a secret way of picking numbers for a lottery, or astrological/magical ways of finding the key. The advantages he talks about are strictly based on odds. Better odds = higher chances of winning.

Using just a little common sense, everyone knows all the information printed in this book. It spends many pages on things such as 'If you are trying out for a gameshow, smile. A lot. And practice. A lot'. I did not learn anything from this book.
