Hello everybody! My name is Victor, I played the lottery for 4 years and never missed any circulation of four lotteries. Whenever buying 1 ticket for each draw, and always hoping to hit the jackpot! Sometimes, hoping for victory in the recent rescue of life … Always wanted to win and wanted to where and how I spend money. Each time check the Australian lotto results on the Internet, so no one knew when I win. And during this time I was so used to play, and forget that I’m playing to win and I did it as I go to work … And that’s when I really stopped to hope I win !!! My advice to you – plays not hoping or thinking about money! Good luck!
