How To Ask A Lottery Winner For Money

Are you in need of money? Perhaps you just want more money. Either way, you might be considering asking a lottery winner for money. If so, you would probably go about asking in different ways, depending on whether or not you actually know the person.

If You Know The Lottery Winner

Let me tell you a true story about two women. These two women were best friends for many years. For one reason or another, they drifted apart and didn’t see each other for a few years. Then one of the women won the lottery. It was a massive jackpot worth hundreds of millions of dollars. A few years after she won the lottery, she re-connected with her old friend. Within days of re-connecting, the one woman told the jackpot winner that she had $50,000 worth of medical bills that she just couldn’t pay. Read between the lines – She was indirectly asking for money.

The jackpot winner was more than happy to pay the medical bills for her friend. She told her to just give her the bills and she would take care of it. That would have been great, except that there actually were no medical bills. It was just an excuse for a reason to ask for money. The lottery winner didn’t like that. If the friend just straight out asked for the money, she probably would have given it to her. But her friend lied and insulted her intelligence.

What’s the moral of this story? If you have a friend that won the lottery, don’t come up with a false story to try to get some money. Rather, just ask you friend straight out to give you some. They just might do it.

If You Don’t Know The Lottery Winner

If you’re planning to ask a lottery winner that you’ve never met for money, you should know up front that the odds are against you. A lot of lottery winners, especially new ones that win massive jackpots get inundated with requests for money. Often, those requests come via sob stories that tug on the person’s emotions. You should know that these new lottery winners quickly become immune to these requests and tune them out.

So if you’re planning to ask a stranger for money, don’t come up with sad stories. Just like in the previous example, tell the truth and just say that you’d appreciate it if they could spare some money. They’ll more than likely decline your request, but don’t take it the wrong way – Jackpot winners can’t give money to everybody that asks them for it. Just make sure that you don’t harass anybody while asking them for money – That’s illegal.

Do Betting Bots Really Make Money?

They have been around for several years now but the question remains can you make money with a betting bot. Betting bots are specialist pieces of software which integrate with betting exchanges like Betfair and Betdaq to automatically place bets within pre defined rules. If you set them up to a winning betting strategy yes you can make money with them.

I have developed many winning betting systems for horse racing and it’s long been a passion of mine. The issue has been that of time. As well as research to find the bets to place actually placing them can be very time consuming and the arrival of bots has revolutionised this for me.

A flexible bot like the oddly named grey horse bot can be used for a wide range of sports and this has opened up many other ways for me to make money. In particular, greyhound betting has become a very nice income stream. There are 300% more greyhound races than horse races in the UK and of course only 6 runners in each race. Also there are no jockeys to worry about and the ‘politics’ are much less of a factor! Greyhounds can be very unpredictable and using a betting bot it’s possible to make good profits laying them to lose.

Football betting is another way to make money with a betting bot. As well as straightforward backing and laying it’s also possible to trade for a profit on Betfair. This is all about making bets before the match kicks off and then making further bets as the game progresses. Again this can be very time consuming and so using a bot frees me up to do other things while it does the work for me.

Two of the concerns people have about bots are the potential cost and the safety and security issues. Many people think they are expensive to use but free trials of bots are usually offered. I more than coveer the monthly subscription with my regular ongoing profits. With regards to safety, a tool like grey horse bot has many in built safety features to limit your liability and protect your betting bank. I have never had issues with them as they are very sophisticated and built by experts.

A robust and reliable betting system is of course key to success. Over the past eleven years I have developed systems for horse racing, greyhounds and football and use these on a daily basis. Sadly there’s a lot of hype out there and new systems arrive on the market every week claiming to make thousands of dollars consistent profit. This really isn’t possible and you must bet safely and sensibly to protect your betting bank. I advise discipline is key and you must be able to resist ‘going for broke’ and deviating from a system!

Betting bots have revolutionised betting for me and compliment my winning systems to ensure I make ongoing profits without having to be tied to a computer screen all day.

If You’re Gambling, Do It Right – When You’re Well Enough Ahead, Take the Money and Run

If you want to become a responsible gambler, try to exercise some discipline when you’re winning so you can leave a winner. It takes self control but believe me, you’ll feel a lot better when your cash out ticket(s) and/or chips tally up to a larger sum than what you walked in with.

The late Frank Lefty Rosenthal, a sports handicapper whose real life character was portrayed by Robert DeNiro in the movie Casino, once said during an interview, “When you’re gambling, it’s not hard to win, it’s hard to quit.”

If you have a circle of friends who visit casinos, you probably heard these responses time and time again when you asked, “how did you make out at the casino?” And with some hesitation it’s usually, “Well, we did OK.” Or,” We’re about even.” And then there’s, “I had a good run in blackjack but I lost it all on the slots”. Sometimes you’ll hear, “My husband won a little but I lost a lot.” Then there’s the best one all, “Hey, what the heck, we didn’t expect to win, we were just out for a good time.”

Just because your entertainment dollars are part of your disposable income doesn’t mean that you have to dispose of it so quickly at the casino. Sure you’re going to lose occasionally, but there are times when you’re going to win.

We’ve all seen casino advertisements that brag about their loose machines and generous odds. They boast about paying millions in winnings to players.That may be true but that does not mean that all those winnings ever left the casino.

Here are a few tips for you when it may be time to ponder, should I Take the Money and Run?

Before Playing

  • Keep your gambling dollars separate from your other money.
  • Set a win goal and a loss limit such as:
  1. Win Goal – When your session buy-in amount is doubled
  2. Loss Limit – When your session buy-in amount is lost

When Playing

When your in the casino and ready to play, think about trying the following with your budget:

YOUR MACHINE BUDGET – Consider dividing it into separate sessions. For example, if you’re playing three credit quarter slots with a $100 budget, break it up into five $20 deposits instead of putting the entire hundred into the machine. If you hit a payout or payouts that double deposit amount, ($40) Cash out the ticket right away. Take a little break before you continue gaming.You’ll feel good with that extra $20 in your pocket or purse when you’re not playing.

YOUR TABLE BUDGET – Consider buying in for at least 20 times the table minimum for each session. For example, buy-in for $200 at a $10 minimum blackjack table. The same applies when playing other card games, roulette, or craps. While playing, try separating the chips that you won from the buy-in chips. Only bet with the original units. If you’re having a decent run and the winning stack is at least double the buy-in, tip your friendly dealer and say goodnight. If you lose the $200, just say bye bye!

Remember, the house edge always belongs to the casino over the long term. When there’s an opportunity to pick up winnings in the short run, take advantage of it. Remember, responsible gambling money management is to Take the Money and Run! Good Luck!

Making Money Gambling: Is it Possible?

Have you ever downloaded gambling software? If you have I’m sure you know now what most of these do – Eat away your wallet.

But now a day everyone is talking about ‘beating the game’ and winning. There is now a ‘system’ that will let you win in Blackjack, Poker and Baccarat. They claim by using a simple system you can win big at the casinos.

Let me tell you one thing: Casinos aren’t set-up to give away money. They’re set-up to take away money. If a casino is giving away money it’ll be gone within a few hours. That’s why the casinos you play at, which are still here, take more money in than they give out.

However, that’s in the long run. You may be lucky, and you might be able to take out more money from the casino then you took in. If so, you’re lucky.

Winning big at the casinos doesn’t happen often. You might win a few dollars but that’s just an investment the casino makes so that you’ll be back to lose some more dollars. Every bet you play, you’re thinking that the next one you’ll win. If that is so, you might be addicted and that is the worst thing that can happen.

Play responsibly. Those ‘beat the casino’ systems might work – but remember this:

If I bet $10 today at the casino, win, and then bet tomorrow $100, win, and then bet $1 000, win and bet again and again, then one day I have to lose. And when I lose I’ll lose everything.

That’s why I say the casino makes an investment in you. When you win, that makes you happy and people like to feel happy. That is why you’ll be back and try to multiply that feeling of happiness 10 times more (because humans are greedy), and then ultimately we lose.

In the end, it’s always more lucrative owning the casino than playing in it. However, if you play for fun, with reasonable amounts and use strategy, than that’s healthy. In one of the gaming sites I own (www.RoxterGames.com – Casino Games &

Internet Bet Portal [http://www.roxtergames.com]), almost all the games can be beaten if people would stop and think using strategy. That’s because I operate a small low-budget gaming/betting website. At the big casinos it’s much harder to win using strategy, but it’s probably not impossible.

Remember, gambling is good when you wager reasonable amounts and play smart. Think strategy and play for fun. Playing like this will make you happier in the long run than winning before losing big.
