Good title a fine five -- for this segment.

Unless you're a regular player and you are following a method like mine.
For tonight is the only thing to do.
Tonight to increase your chances of winning is to buy as many as by as many tickets as you possibly can.
But -- the most important message I've been trying to get across to America all week regarding tonight's drawing is don't get lottery fever.
Don't spend more money than you can afford to spend because remember something if there is a winner tonight is going to be 12 maybe three winners -- a split the pot.
But there's going to be millions.
Of people tonight that are not gonna win so don't wake up tomorrow morning find out that -- didn't win.
And that is saying oh my god how -- actually saw that money I spent.
I got -- advice but we want and I'll happily yeah now you say generally when it comes to picking lottery numbers don't use the quick -- what do you do instead.
Absolutely get quick picks I tell people all the time don't like quick -- of people say we need to buy quick -- I always -- quick picks have you won yet.
If the media -- -- the teaches people how to increase your chances of winning you never increase your chances of winning.
When you're buying quick picks because you're getting a different set of numbers every single time she odds always -- -- be at the worst.
By playing a regular set of numbers consistently.
The more you play that set of numbers the better your chances become -- you talk about a good set -- numbers instead of just isolated numbers what's a good set of numbers.
It's it's very difficult to explain in a short interview like this but there -- a method that you -- you -- research sets of numbers and and I teach people that in my book.
And it's very simple to do but you were researching you'll you'll find out if your set -- sets of numbers are good sets of numbers -- they are not.
You throw a lot -- pick a different set of numbers if they're good then you start playing and you keep playing a.
Sure and I know this is -- the the horse before the cart.
As it should be.
But when it when it comes to tell exactly Bernanke -- the other way I hit it I -- it this way because.
We don't know whether or not we're gonna win tonight we hope we do.
But lump sum or pay out over years I've heard that so many people blow all the Dow in five or six years it would make sense to -- it is spread it out.
Well that's something you'll find a financial advisor would be able to tell you I personally take them -- the money every time lump sum.
But you might be better off taking over the years and you're right that's what happens is.
People who -- large jackpots they've never had that much money before they don't know how to deal with that influx of money.
So get help a financial advisor or an accountant to lawyer and make sure those people by the way a reputable people.
And they will tell you how to she used that money to secure your financial spot future.
All right are you playing tonight.
Oh absolutely on the -- that's about I'm an idiot and I are gonna win.
What are your numbers we never know what -- -- -- pardon him as one of our little -- of those.
