I figured that lots of people who play the lottery have a "number picking system". His numbers came up. However, there is no cause and effect between the two, the system did not predict the win (unless it could be proven to win statistically which I doubt would be possible).
I remember one of the people who I contracted for bought some lottery software that he knew would work for him. He said he would win because the guy on the cover "looked successful". If he had won, he would have endorsed the software.
Now, if the guy in Idaho wins again and again, I will take notice.
