Richard Lustig Powerball jackpot tips: Winning advice from seven-time lottery winner

Didn't win the latest Powerball lottery? Don't fret, the newest jackpot is $40 million.

If at first you don't succeed, you can always try, try again.

The odds of winning the Powerball jackpot are 1 in 175 million but millions are chasing the money and searching for secrets to win.

Seven-time lottery winner Richard Lustig was featured on "Good Morning America" Tuesday and offered his unscientific tips for increasing your shot at the prize. Maybe they will work for you next time.

He suggests:

- Pick your own numbers instead of having the machine do it for you

- Research and see if your numbers have won before

- Select your ten sets of numbers and keep those if you continue buying tickets

- Buy as many tickets as you can afford

Lottery officials say that the more tickets that are purchased, the greater the odds there will be a winner.

Lustig says he has won more than $7 million in grand prizes. He has written a book called "Learn How to Increase Your Chances of Winning the Lottery," and has a website with more information about his strategies.
