That’s not my real name, of course, but it will do for now. I have been involved in and written about the lottery business in the United States and around the world for more than 10 years. I have been on CNN as a lottery expert. I have worked with the POWERBALL and MEGA MILLIONS organizations and individual lotteries in Maryland, Connecticut, Washington D.C., California and Wisconsin. I am an insider, and I will try to give you lottery tips to help you win top lottery prizes, but I don’t promise miracles. I am not a systems expert. I am not a mathematician. I am simply an observer. And a player.

I hope to entertain you and inspire you with stories about winners and players. I’ll tell you about new games, hot tickets and even hot and cold lottery numbers. I’ve talked with thousands of big time lottery winners.

From all of them I’ve learned one thing: anyone can win.

And maybe you’re next.

If you have any questions about any lotteries in the world, fire them at me and if I don’t know the answer I probably know someone who does. If you have a unique and amusing lottery story, let me know and maybe you’ll make my next book (I wrote a now out of print book about lottery winners in year 2000), which is now in preparation. If you know of any interesting or odd promotions in YOUR lottery state, let me know and I’ll look into it. If you know (or are yourself) a big winner and want to talk to me, drop me a reply and I’ll get back to you. By the way, I will always check with state lotteries if I am contacted by a winner to verify their name and winnings.

Occasionally, we’ll run contests and giveaways. So watch this space to win cool stuff.

I will blog Wednesday through Sunday, but sometimes on Monday and Tuesday as well, if something important happens in the lottery world.

So let’s have fun.

My fondest wish for all of you reading this is: I hope YOU win a lot of money.
