Tragic Stories of Winners
We are sure you’ve heard many stories about people who win the lottery and then their lives fall apart but do you believe that this is really the case? Or is it just a fact that that kind of story simply has a certain “news value” as opposed to a story about a person who wins the lottery and then lives happily ever after?
Think about it, and you’ll soon see that this is the real reason why you’ve only heard about those “tragic” stories, those are the ones selling the newspaper (or bringing the clicks and views, if we are using the in 21st century lingo). So, when we dismiss the possibility of people being cursed by the lottery because they’ve made a deal with the devil to win it, what do we have left? Who are the people who really win the lottery? And what do they have in common?
What do the experts say?
Many “experts”, ranging from the serious ones like mathematicians to the more dubious ones like tarot readers, have tried to come up with the magic formula for winning big money easily. In fact, there is a living, breathing person, who claims to have cracked the code, backing up his theory with 14 personal wins and retirement on a tropical island behind him.
His name is Stefan Mandel, and he is very well known to any lotto enthusiast. This Romanian-born economist even released his own 6-step formula for winning, but don’t bother, two out of those six steps are not even legal anymore in most of the western countries (buying tickets in bulk and printing them at home).
Other than cracking the formula and outsmarting the lotteries, though, there is some more realistic advice that most lottery connoisseurs would tell you. First of all, do your research: find the games with the most probable odds for you to win the lottery. Find opportunities online where you can buy fractions of the ticket – increase your possibility to win by spreading your budget over more than just one ticket. Also, in addition to that: buy as many tickets as you can afford to lose. Check statistics to find out which are the rarest numbers – that way if you win, you won’t have to split your jackpot with many other winners.
So, as you can see, you don’t have to be “just” lucky to win the lottery. You have to be systematic, persistent, detail-oriented, dedicated and believe in your chance of winning, but that goes without saying; you wouldn’t even play if that wasn’t the case, right?
Now that you have all of the necessary ingredients, there’s not much left but to find the right lottery and play.
