In his 30-sec blurb on one of the news show, he suggested staying away from the quick-pick and stick with any combo you decide on. If you play often then there's more chance your sequence catches the "lightning in a bottle"...still 1 in 175mil but the second time it's 1 in 88.5 mil and so on.

As to his winning ways, he's never cashed a PB draw but has won several of the more frequent, lower-odds FL we have a six-number Lotto (no PB) twice weekly, a four-number/mega ball twice weekly and the nightly five-number Fantasy 5. There are many multiple winners of the Fantasy 5 and it's jackpot can go into the low 1mil range if it rolls over.
Despite all of life's bumps and bruises, I'm still committed to making this world better one smile, one laugh at a time, every day!
