Choosing your lucky lotto numbers
Wilmington, NC (WWAY) — Whether it’s your date of birth, an old jersey number, or just a guess. Lottery players say there is a method to their madness.
During one six-hour window on Wednesday the store sold close to 450 Powerball tickets were sold at the Wrightsville Country Store in Wilmington.
“It was crazy all day man, like non-stop business” said Alex Damrah of the Wrightsville Country Store. “People came in like three times already to buy Powerball tickets trying to chase the dream of being a millionaire.”
While many let the computers do the thinking for them some people get personal with their picks.
“I picked one of my own it’s my niece, my nephew, my age, my wife’s age, and my anniversary” says Bruce Comeau.
With $550-million dollars on the line some players say they decided to switch up their strategy and take a risk.
“I usually let the computer pick and do the quick pick so this time I decided to go with my own instinct and I picked my daughters age, my daughter will be two this year,” said Ronald Evans. “My birthday is the 27th of December and then just some random birth dates and age numbers.”
