The odds of winning the Powerball jackpot are 1 in 175 million but millions are chasing the money and searching for secrets to win.
Seven-time lottery winner Richard Lustig was featured on "Good Morning America" Tuesday and offered his unscientific tips for increasing your shot at the prize:
- Pick your own numbers instead of having the machine do it for you
- Research and see if your numbers have won before
- Select your ten sets of numbers and keep those if you continue buying tickets
- Buy as many tickets as you can afford
Lottery officials say that the more tickets that are purchased, the greater the odds there will be a winner.
Lustig says he has won more than $7 million in grand prizes. He has written a book called "Learn How to Increase Your Chances of Winning the Lottery," and has a website with more information about his strategies.
