    Sorry Monica I have been working too hard. Trying to make ends meet. I wish there was a simple and easy way to make it in life. If you know please tell me. Monica what is the best way to pick the winning numbers? Mainly for Lotto, Powerball and Mega Millions.

      Sadly there is no magic way to pick winning numbers Jerome. It just doesn’t work like that – if it did it wouldn’t be a lottery :-). If you’re playing the US games then try a US syndicate here for a better chance of winning.

    I’m very busy working 8 to 5 and on weekends I work on my Tropical Ornamental Fish Project. I want to continue receiving lotto stories, as I now scheduled to read them when I’m in my fish house. I’m now buying my Local Jamaican lotto and when I visit the U.S.A. in May for my son’s wedding I hope to win a U.S. Lotto – that would be great to give my son and daughter in law a super Caribbean cruise.
