Richard Lustig, a seven-time winner of the lottery, shared his tips with Inside Edition on how to pick the winning numbers.
He said that it's not because people are stupid but they don't know how play." He spoke in 2016 interview.
He said that there are certain things you shouldn't do.
He said, "Don't let the computer choose your numbers."
He advised that you should stick with your numbers after you have chosen them. "So even if your chances of winning the next time are up," he stated.
He recommends that everyone has a copy and a list of all those who are in the office pool.
His biggest tip is to only play if it's possible. Avoid spending grocery money.
Lustig is not the only one who picks winning numbers more than once.
Antulio Mazariegos from California won $4 million for winning four times between November 2017 & May 2018.
He wasn't able to pinpoint the reason behind his win streak, unlike Lustig. He said that he enjoys the game and told lotto officials.
