How to Win the Lottery (Guaranteed 10 Times Out of 10)

Lottery Balls - How to Win
You’re so lucky… Lucky that you found this page. Why? Because I just figured out how to win the lottery and, right now, I will teach you how to do it too.

In fact, I bet that the moment you finish reading this, you’ll be rushing out to play the lottery and buy a Powerball ticket.

Yes, you will.

All of the bad luck in your life is about to change. No more financial worries. Heck, no more worries, period. That’s what winning the lottery will do for you.

Your first stroke of luck was finding this article. But, through some mystical happenstance, you did it, you found this page. That, my friend, is fate. Now prepare to be wowed!

I’m going to tell you how to win the lottery. But first, I will tell you what pushed me to try to figure out how to do it. Then I will tell you why you should trust me that this works.

Finally, I’ll tell you exactly how to do it – How to win the lottery.

How It All Started

I, myself, wanted to learn how to win the lottery. As with anything, when you want to learn how to do something new, you find out how to do it by searching the internet (D’uh!). That’s what I did. I searched “How to win the lottery” on my favorite search engine.

This internet search engine provided plenty of results to my query. One, in particular, caught my attention. It was a system developed by a man claiming to be a professor from Oklahoma.

This professor claimed to have developed a magical formula that guarantees you’ll win the lottery 8-times-out-of-10.

8-times-out-of-10, eh? Nice, but I wanted to win it every time I played, like 10-times-out-of-10. Further, this professor wanted $100 to purchase his system. Ya, right! Like I’d fork over a hundred bucks to buy a system that fails 20% of the time. As if!

So I kept searching. I couldn’t find anything. I decided to figure it out on my own. I figured it out. In a moment, I will tell you.

Why Should You Trust Me

That Oklahoma professor that I told you about makes a lot of money selling his system at a hundred bucks a pop. Why? Because people trust him. He’s got credentials. I mean, he’s a professor… How could you not trust him?

You can trust me too. I’ve got credentials. For instance, I once passed a high school calculus exam without cheating. And, when I watch Jeopardy, I can sometimes answer a question (Or question an answer, whatever).

To top it all off, my mom once told me that I’m the second smartest out of all of her sons. So you see, I’m smart.

You know what else my mom told me? She told me I’m her best-looking son.

Why does it matter what I look like, you may ask? It matters because people that are good-looking are perceived to be more intelligent. It’s true, they did a study.

I’m smart, good-looking, and you can trust me. Now I’ll tell you how to win the lottery. But unlike that Oklahoma professor, I will not charge you anything for this. I will tell you for free.

If you do wanna pay me back, though, just buy me a Dr. Pepper when you win, OK?

How To Win The Lottery

I’m going to give you this information in concise, easy-to-understand steps. I’m going to specifically tell you how to win the Powerball game. However, you can use these steps to win any lotto game, worldwide.

Here we go:

Step 1:: Ask your mom for $2. You’ll need $2 because this is how much it costs to buy a Powerball ticket.

Step 2: Grab your skateboard and skateboard on down to the local gas station. I prefer to go to BP because they’re a company that are meticulous about their offshore oil drilling safety.

That’s important to me. They almost never spill oil into the waters, especially the waters in the gulf of Mexico. But, for you, any gas station will do.

Step 3: Walk into the gas station and look for a multi-colored plastic stand that says “Lotto” on it. Go there. You will find number-selection slips. Take the one that says “Powerball.” That’s the one you need.

Step 4: This is the most important step. You have to pick five numbers from 1-to-59, plus one more number from 1-to-35.

Listen carefully, now. To win the Powerball jackpot, you have to correctly predict which numbers will be drawn on Powerball draw night. Those are the numbers that you need to mark down on the Powerball number-selection slip in front of you.

All you have to do to win the Powerball jackpot is correctly predict the numbers that will be drawn, ahead of time. That’s it! That’s all you have to do to win Powerball! It works every time!

Now you know how to win the lottery – You just have to correctly predict the numbers that will be drawn on draw night. You can do that for any lottery game, worldwide. It’s guaranteed to work every time, 10-times-out-of-10.


I’m sure you figured out that this article was overly sarcastic. I did that on purpose. There’s a lot of fluff on the internet regarding systems that promise you’ll win the lottery if you’d just fork over some dough.

I’m trying to save you some of that dough by, hopefully, persuading you that these “systems” don’t work. Nobody can teach you how to win the lottery, including myself.

With that said, winning the lottery is all about odds. Here are the odds of winning some of the most popular lottery games in the world (And as you’ll see, it’s hard to do):

Powerball:: 1-in-175,223,510
Mega Millions: 1-in-175,711,536
EuroMillions:: 1-in-116,531,800
EuroJackpot:: 1-in-59,325,280
Lotto Max (Canada):: 1-in-28,633,528

Watcha gonna do now? Rush out to buy a Powerball ticket? I thought so!

P.S. Don’t forget to pay your mom back that $2 after you win the jackpot.

P.S.S. Instead of playing the lottery, why don’t you try to win up to $10 million by saving in an FDIC insured account from Yotta.

    The true way to win the lotto powerball or any other game is to buy more tickets than posdible outcomes, so say its 1 dollar per ticket, odds r 175,000,000, and the jackpot is 360,000,000, well kust fork over the 176 mill and u r guarenteed to double your money

  2. Avatar LucianPheonix says

    HEhe:) great post,but its true though.It is however a way to “predict” or get extremly close to the winning numbers. But you have to know alot about how the entire universe is built up and works to understand that,and most people dont even do that even after studying their entire life:).
    So ill stick with your post:)

  3. Maybe you both should post pictures and let us vote on who is better looking.  The winner buys the other one a lottery ticket. 

    • I showed Philip’s picture to my mom. She says I’m better looking.
      Philip, you owe me a lottery ticket.

    Looks like I’m riding my skateboard to Canada to play the lottery! Sweet odds!

  5. What about the fact that most lottery winners are bankrupt a couple of years after they win?  Doesn’t seem worth it to me.

    • Avatar Philip Taylor says

       @Adaptu That is an interesting statement to make. Are you saying that you know you would go bankrupt? 

    •  @Adaptu  they’re bankrupt because they can’t maintain the lifestyle. I would choose more influx of cash flow than a lump sum in my bank.

    • Avatar muspelheim says

       @Adaptu As for me, 85% of my lottery winnings would immediately go into an endowment fund for myself and family to live off of.  15% would go towards enjoying the fact that I’m far richer than I was yesterday, and this would last for years and years.  If you win $50, why not be happy as hell that you now have say 10 mil to spend as you please, and treat that as the total?  But, to each his/her own.
