Kerry and Dianne Carmichael have been playing the lottery for more than 30 years, and they have been handsomely rewarded for it. The couple have won big twice: a $2.5 million Pick Jackpot Kerry won in 1995 and a $1 million Powerball payout for Dianne just before their annuities from the first ran out.
There may be some tips we can pick up from the way they play. First is to play regularly. Then the pair says they only use money set aside for “entertainment” for playing the lottery and making other bets. A third tip is to avail of investment advisers’ assistance to keep the money earning. And despite their win, the frugal couple have continued working and taking chances with the lottery.
