Save your money,
This review is from: Learn How To Increase Your Chances of Winning The Lottery (Paperback)
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 can't believe he is still all over the news either. By the way, I didn't buy the book. A friend downloaded a copy from a website somewhere. It's just about 30 pages without all the family photos. Some of his other "great advise": never miss a draw, and don't stand in line to buy tickets at the last minute, get them when there is no line.

Even though I'm not a jackpot lottery winner "yet", I could of told anyone this stradegy for free, play the same numbers every drawing, and the same scratch offs. On the scratch offs, I always check my local lottery web site to see which tickets have the most remaing jackpot prizes. I have won no more than $30 a few times playing the lottery using the same numbers each time, and I will continue until I hit a lump sum. If you can afford it than hey, why not do it.

He was just on Rachel Ray and bought a group of 125 lotto scratch-offs for the audience.
He claims that every 10 tickets has at least ONE winning ticket. Of those in the audience,
only 14 won something, and of those, only 1 person won more than $20. So by his logic,
if you buy in 'groups of 10 tickets', even at $2 each, you "might" break even,
but most likely you will lose money. The ONLY good advice he gave was that you
should keep all your losing tickets for the year, because IF you should win a large sum of money,
then you can use those losing tickets and claim them as a deduction on your taxes
against the taxes you'll have to pay on the large winning sum.
ALSO....he said he's won a large sum 7 times, HOWEVER,
those 7 seven times add up to around 850,000.
HARDLY the BIG lotto jackpot you would expect.
It's still a lot, but he makes it sound like he's won millions or something.

There is no way to meaningful way to increase your odds of winning the lottery. Playing the same numbers every time or changing them makes no difference. The title alone should indicate that your should save your money
