The lottery handed out a total $19 million in prizes Wednesday during an event at Jamaica’s Resorts World New York City Casino.

Scoring a big lottery jackpot like that would definitely have me set for life! I would immediately hire a good financial advisor to help me develop an investment plan that will make that money grow and help my family out for generations... Instead of blowing through it all in a few months like some winners do! I'm following this system I found online (simply titled "Lottery Method"; here's a review if you're interested: http://gamblingsystemreviews.net/lottery-method/ ) It's true that the lottery is mostly a game of chance, but this ebook tells you which numbers have historically had the most success, which ones rarely come up, and mistakes people make when choosing their numbers. I'm quite certain my chances are increased now that I know these tactics.
