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 games...in 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.
