Powerball winner Alain Maboussou won $15 million and collected it while wearing sunglasses. Photo.
"How much are these?" I asked, pointing to a well known brand of sunglasses worn by James Bond.
The cheerful shop asistant looked at the box and said, "that'll be $800."
My brain-o-meter didn't even blink. Because a while back I thought I had broken a world secret. After years of making do with cheap sunglasses, I got worried about the effect they were having on my eyes.
Excessive UV light is the start of a number of eye problems. So I decided to buy the best. But after sitting on, losing and cracking a small fortune in designer sunglasses like these, I had a rethink...
My theory was that if you bought the most expensive in the type of goods you wanted, you would be free of problems. The problems I talk about are poor quality, bad fit, expensive repairs.
This works for cars (so far!) and many other items.
But I found it didn't work for sunglasses.
A cheap pair from the gas station work just as well, and you can buy half a dozen of them for when you lose them.
There's another area that doesn't work well for spending a large sum of money - high jackpot lottery games.
Sure, there's a lot of appeal in winning hundreds of millions in a super jackpot.
But the reality is that your chances of winning the main prize are very slim - even with my system. That's why I tell everyone that a collection of smaller prizes - maybe adding up to many millions - is better than the giant games.
Here's why. Take a look at this email:
KEN, I THOUGHT I'D GIVE YOU AN UPDATE - OVER THE PAST TWO MONTHS I HAVE BANKED TWELVE CHEQUES FOR A TOTAL OF $648.00
NOT A GREAT AMOUNT ONE MIGHT SAY BUT THE FACT IS ONCE I SET YOUR MATRIX I HAVE NOT CHANGED IT AND THE RESULTS TO DATE INDICATE THAT THE MATRIX WORKS. SO I'LL KEEP IT SET AS IS AND CONTINUE TO PLAY.
ALSO, I AGREE WITH YOU THAT THE ODDS ON POWERBALL, ETC ARE SO HUGE AS TO BE IN THE FANTASY CLASS. WHY DO THEY LIST SUCH HIGH PRIZES? BECAUSE THE ODDS ARE SO HUGE...

He's right. Because the best way to improve your odds is by playing the lowest ball and number combinations. And the good thing? It's a LOT cheaper.
Which means you can play more and increase your winning chances too.
Low numbers of balls and low numbers in any game give vastly better odds.
For example, in some games like the USA Louisiana Lotto, you can happily use the Silver Lotto System to play their low 6 ball, 40 number game.
Not only is the Louisiana Lotto just $1 a game - but it has very low odds of around 1:3,838,380 for the cash jackpot prize of between $600,000 - $800,000.
Together with the Lotto-80 Membership and PRO Custom Profiles, that gives very good odds indeed, even though the main prize is not that high.
Now, most low ball/number games have these low main prize payouts.
But that's not a bad thing.
Because the odds are so low that you actually have a better chance of a winning a prize.
Large games like USA Powerball often will go several plays or even many weeks before the jackpot is won, And that's with millions of players, each playing many lines - and some spending hundreds of dollars a game.
The odds are stacked against you with such high balls and numbers. The odds are so impossibly high that generally NO-ONE wins the jackpot in the first weeks, so they have to roll it over again.
So isn't it better to play lower odds and get a BETTER and regular bite of a lower-value prize?
Play the lowest ball and number combination game available in your state, town or country. Only then will you start getting the wins you want.
But here's some contradictory advice... you CAN still play the Powerball. I believe you'll get better results with my system than in any other method.
Just make sure you improve your win rate with the PRO Custom Profiles, and don't hang out for the main jackpot. A few million in secondary prizes is still a tidy sum which will buy you anything your heart desires!
Ken, I've won: $400.00, $300.00, $75.00, $50.00, $10.00, $5.00, $3.00 not just once but many times... I won every week for four months on Powerball. It was a great feeling...YOUR SYSTEM WORKS. Thank you.
