This week’s U.S Powerball staggering jackpot is just around the corner with official tickets now available world-wide via online purchase in Australia. With such an enormous sum at stake, who better to turn to then Richard Lustig, seven-time lottery grand prize winner for tips on how to win the lottery online. Read on to learn exactly how he did it. With this week’s huge jackpot, you might even want to try it for yourself this once.
You never thought it would happen. Not to you. After all, you don’t usually play the lottery. Why would you? You can’t win. But this time, you figured, this time, just maybe, lady luck would find her way to you. You bought 4, 7, 19, 34, 58, and a 10 Powerball. Boom! You just won the lottery.
For Richard Lustig, seven-time lottery grand prize winner and author of “Learn How to Increase Your Chances of Winning the Lottery”, winning the lottery has become just another day at the office.
Lustig’s first win came in 1992, a $10,000 payout that came at a very opportune time. “At that time, we were like everybody else, we were living paycheck to paycheck,” he tells NSIDEMAG. “I won that two weeks after my son was born and the insurance wouldn’t cover all the medical bills, so we didn’t know how we were going to pay the rest of the bills. And we were also living in an old house, we had a leaky roof. And it’s just like a scene in a movie — every time it rained, we would put the buckets out to catch the water.”

- 1 in 4 of all jackpots are won with a group ticket
“So when I won that first grand prize, the first thing I did was I paid off the hospital and got our roof repaired”.
Despite winning repeatedly over the next few years, including his latest winning of $250,000 one year ago, Lustig didn’t see that there was a pattern until his fourth win. “I didn’t even realize that I had a method until my fourth win. Even though everybody else was saying “oh, you’re just a lucky guy, there’s no such thing as a method.” I’m saying, “I won four times. How can you say that’s just luck?”
“But when I won my fifth grand prize, people started to say, ‘ok, wait a minute here. Nobody can be that lucky. What’s your secret?’ That was the big question I got.”
Today he prefers to play the ever growing in popularity lottery online with an authorized online retailer, all from the comfort of his own home. “Luck has no boundaries and buying a ticket online allows you to pick your own numbers or join a group and participate in the world’s biggest official lotteries, like Powerball or MegaMillions, even if you live in a different country” explains Lustig. “Ever hear of the man in Iraq who won $6.4 million in the Oregon lottery jackpot? True story, look it up on the net”, dares us Lustig.
“Today I play online mostly for the convenience. Playing the online lottery is a fun way to make your dreams come true without breaking a sweat. No hassle, no lineups and your ticket is 100% stored and secured, so there’s no chance you’ll lose a million dollar win because your dog ate the ticket”, laughs Lustig.
We asked him if there were any other benefits to buying tickets online. “Wow, big time!” he answers enthusiastically. “You can play whatever lottery you like with no geographical restrictions whatsoever. If there’s a big draw taking place on the other side of the world, you don’t just have to watch the news and wish you had been able to play– you can actually play!”.
“And besides, your chances of winning are just as good as buying a ticket at your local grocery store, if not better, because of the group entry options” he added.
With his prize money, Lustig has bought a Jaguar and Harley-Davidson motorcycle for himself, as well as a BMW for his son. But his most treasured splurge has been the family’s multiple vacations.
“I don’t guarantee or make promises to anybody that by following my method you’re going to win the lottery,” says Lustig. “I’m not a scam artist. I’m telling people exactly the truth- that they will definitely increase their chances of winning” using my lottery method”.
Ready to put some proven advice into action? Here they are! Richard Lustig’s five secrets of boosting your chances to win the lottery online:
- Get better odds: Avoid “quick-pick”
Lustig says that the #1 guaranteed way to increase your chances of winning the lottery is simply by picking your own numbers. “The lazy way out is to buy quick-picks. The computer picks out the numbers. Don’t play quick-picks. Quick-picks are the worst thing you can do, you are playing with the worst odds,” Lustig said to us about the Powerball.
- Win more money: Pick numbers larger than 31
Many people use birthdates and anniversaries when filling out their cards. While your loved ones bring you priceless joy, using their special days to bring home the jackpot will likely mean you end up splitting the prize with 20-40 people. Instead of just playing numbers 1-31, use all the numbers available. “If you spread the numbers out across the whole track, you’ll either be only winner or will split it with only one or two people,” Lustig says.
- Never pick consecutive numbers
If playing a jackpot with 5 winning numbers where the numbers go up to 55, the total of your numbers
should be between 104 and 176. According to studies, 70% of all lottery jackpots have sums that fall
within that range.
- Be consistent- Pick the same numbers regularly
Simply put: If you want to win a particular game, it doesn’t matter how you pick your numbers but chose them randomly. Once you pick your set of numbers, stick with them for the long term.
- Don’t get carried away
While winning $300 million would ultimately grant you and your loved ones financial security, it’s important not to spend money you can’t afford to lose (groceries, rent, etc) on lottery tickets. If you can only buy one ticket or even 10 but not 100, that’s ok. Spend what you can comfortably afford to on lottery tickets and no more,” Lustig says.
“To conclude, winning a lottery is not merely a matter of luck. By having the right information, you will be able to create game strategies. This can be done very simply, so stick to these rules, and enjoy the game. And just remember – you can’t win if you don’t play!” reminds us Lustig.
Lustig says he will absolutely be playing Saturday’s Powerball. But when asked what numbers he’ll be playing, he wouldn’t share. “Not telling. Good try though,” laughs Mr. seven-time lottery winner.
