Hello Lottery Guy: I read a book on how a man employed by a lottery enterprise was able to scam the lottery by having a person (like me) choose a lottery ticket -simply give him the numbers. He would put a powder on the lottery popups and they would be winners. Truth or fiction?

Depending on the game type, it would be very difficult to manipulate the balls to ensure one single combination came out. Sounds likely to be fiction.
Do you recall what specific lottery game the book referred to?

Thank you for all your vast insight and experience on lotteries.
I have read your letters and reviews on other systems, and I see what you are trying to inform us about now!! So many different lotto/lottery systems on the internet, and it is all too easy getting one’s self trapped quickly into buying a lottery/lotto system that is worthless.
There are many that sell us anything False and make it look legit and honest! But you always prove and then back up everything with evidence and facts. Thanks Lottery Guy, keep up the great work. There are people who believe in you and your skills.

Thanks Buddy 🙂
You certainly do have to be wary. There’s an awful lot of rubbish out there, that some people are more than happy to sell to anyone they can convince to buy it.

Hi Lottery Guy, I read your article on Nick Perry in PA, very interesting. Good research! Thanks for putting out this article. I truly appreciate your honesty and candor in helping us lottery players. I have not won a jackpot yet, but appreciate someone putting out some honesty and TRUTH out there, instead of so much BS (which is pretty obvious if you have half a brain and think about it). The odds of winning are pretty much stacked against you and to depend on winning the lottery for your economic survival, is probably not the greatest idea. Again, appreciate your website and keep up the good work. Appreciate your website, keep it up. Have a lucky day!

YUP, the moment I began reading that someone was going to mess with the Lottery, immediately the movie “LUCKY NUMBERS” with John Travolta flashed. I had no idea the movie was based on an actual event. WOW! It’s a pretty good movie but can’t ever see that happening again in lifetime of the Lottery.

This is not a ‘cheating’ story but it’s one of the early days syndicates. And I don’t think covering all the possible combinations is cheating, it’s just smart playing. Of course the jackpot has to out way the bet.
I remember in 1992 there was a big Virginia jackpot of 27 mil. And an overseas company syndicate tried to buy up all the possible combinations of about 7 million. They covered 5 million out of the 7 million, but they ran out of time to buy up the last 2 million. They still had the winning ticket in the 5 million tickets that they bought though. This lends to what Lottery Guy has been saying, syndicates are the way to go. The full NYTimes story is here.
What do you think about starting a syndicate for the pick 3, 4 or 5 game – we can pick the one with the best odds and calculate how many people are needed to cover the odds and have a good payout?

South African Lotto is rigged… Political connection that’s why I don’t play it anymore.

So despite reading all the above Paul, how incredibly difficult it is to rig a lottery game, and how ridiculously difficult it is not to get caught out, you still think it’s rigged..? Who by? How is it being done? How long? For what purpose?
To be honest I very much doubt it 🙂

Oh yes!! I remember that well. I was a teenager when that happened and I even remember the draw!
It brings back memories of that time in my little town outside of Philly. 🙂

Thanks for believing me about the fixed big three lottery in Pittsburgh, your story about this was great. Thanks Jim

There probably are ways to cheat the lottery – just as Nick and the Maragos Brothers, somebody will probably come up with a better plan in the future.

Greetings, they don’t have to rig it because there are enough numbers to make sure nobody accidentally wins.
