Some Amazing Coincidences - But Can You Repeat Them Often Enough To Win The Lottery?

"So, where do you live?" the salesman enquired pleasantly, making small talk as he led us round the store. "Are you local?"

I told him. He stopped and said, "That's interesting. I live below your road, I think. I've always looked up and admired the houses up there - particularly the big modern one with the zigzag roof."

"Well, that's ours," I said.

"Is it!" he said in surprise. "What a coincidence."

He told us where he lived, and I said, "I can see your place from ours."

There was more of a coincidence that I was willing to let on. Because a couple of years earlier, after admiring the color of a house further down the hillside for a while, I had mine painted in the same shade.

That was his house.

You get a lot of coincidences in lottery games:

  • On Sept. 11, 2002 -9/11/02, the New York State lottery numbers were 9, 11.
  • In 2009 a 1-in-5.2 million shot came through in Bulgaria, when the same 6 winning numbers turned up in two consecutive drawings - 4, 15, 23, 24, 35 and 42.
  • In 2010 the Israeli lottery had drawn the same six numbers twice in a month.
  • In France a player won $4 million in the lottery - twice, 15 years apart. 
  • The French coincidences are not rare: A player hit $3 million on two occasions in 1994 and 1997. Another pocketed 675,000 euro in 1992 and 7 million euro seven years later. In 1991, another player won 2 million Lotto Sports, and 9 million in Lotto in 2010.

The problem is that most of these lucky coincidences are not repeatable... it is rare to predict them with any success.

That's why it is important to use my Silver Lotto System regularly and back it up with the Lotto-80 System. It increases the potential of a win - which is far more repeatable than chance.
