Why Would Anyone BUY Lottery Numbers?

Would you buy a book on how to win the lottery? Would you buy just the numbers? Sadly, some gullible people are doing just that.

Last month, Money Talks News founder Stacy Johnson conducted a heated interview with Richard Lustig, an author who’s selling a book on how to win the lottery. In Can You Improve Your Lottery Odds?, Stacy even interviewed a statistics professor who said such a thing was completely impossible.

Now there’s PlaySlipNumbers.com. The site’s publicist contacted Stacy this month and boasted, “Their team of statisticians, researchers, and programmers have developed an algorithm that dictates numbers that have a better chance of winning. Would love to hear your take on this topic.”

So here’s Stacy’s take: People who buy this stuff are wasting their hard-earned cash.

Think about it: If this “team” had really devised an “algorithm” that can win the lottery, would they really share it with you? Wouldn’t they just play the lottery, make millions, and retire to Tahiti?
