This is the story of Cynthia Stafford, one of the hundreds who have won the US Mega Millions jackpots. Believe it or not, Cynthia used a special method to win.
Most importantly, her story is one of true lottery success, so read on!
Her first reaction was one of pure elation.
"When I found out I had won $112 million dollars in the California Mega Millions jackpot eight years ago, I wasn't even watching the TV. The winning numbers had been announced a few days before, but my kids and I had forgotten to check. Then my father called and told me to look at my ticket. The random numbers aligned. I felt elated like I was floating."
In the US, lottery winners have the option of receiving the cheque in the mail (which is actually cheque-sized, opposed to the enormous lottery winner's cheques you usually see), or collect it at the State Lottery office. For excitement sakes, Cynthia and her family decided to pick it up at the lottery office. As she drove down there, she reminisced on how exactly she won it - she willed it to happen.
She would play the lottery often every month and while people told her that millions are entering and that her chances are slim, she constantly told herself "I'm going to win." That alone ensured that one day, she would walk away a grand jackpot winner. Cynthia would laser focus on the money, she even had an exact sum of $112 million in her head every time she purchased the US Mega Millions lottery ticket. That right there is a lottery technique we can all learn from. What was risky (as far as lottery-winning methods go), was that Cynthia would always select Quick Pick for her lottery numbers.
After winning, Cynthia used her money smartly, by purchasing a brand new home for her family, and setting up a long-term money-making business, namely film production. That makes her, weirdest of all, a long-time lottery success story, as many multi-million-dollar lottery winners go on to spend their money wastefully. One of the best investments Cynthia made and one we can recommend for all lottery winners is to secure a financial advisor. That, and to trust your own intuition when making a massive purchase. Yet, in order to win the lottery, you simply need to continue playing and never give up!
Cynthia Stafford, who donated more than a million dollars to charity and spent over $200 000 on handbags, is now bankrupt according to reports. On January 6, Cynthia officially filed for chapter 13 bankruptcy after making some "bad investments" and "losing money on the stock market". Time to hit the US Powerball once more?
