10. Richard Lustig’s Story
Florida native Richard Lustig is a truly fascinating man. He is considered one of the luckiest men in the nation and publications like Forbes all line up to interview him. The reason is his incredible luck in playing the lottery. But turns out it wasn’t just luck, as revealed in Lustig’s book Learn How to Increase Your Chances of Winning the Lottery.
To give you some context, Lustig won seven lottery grand prizes and has enough expertise to create his own theory of winning (and winning big). “When the lottery came to Florida, I was like everybody else: ‘Wow, buy lottery tickets, win a lot of money, retire, buy a big fancy yacht, whatever, blah, blah, blah.’” But as the man eventually realized, there was much more to lottery winning than this initial dollar rush.
