Carlo Massetti, a notorious Kiwi-born Lotto winner now based in Australia, has revealed the secrets behind his incredible winning streak, which has earned him millions of dollars. Massetti has won the lottery five times, including three winning tickets he purchased from the same Sydney store within 10 days.
Massetti’s winning formula involves spending a significant amount of money on a systems entry ticket, where he selects his own lottery numbers instead of using a Quick Pick. He typically spends between $5000 and $8000 on these tickets and chooses eight to nine numbers across the lines. Instead of going for massive Powerball draws with high jackpots, he opts for smaller-jackpot draws on Mondays to Wednesdays or Saturdays, when there are fewer participants.
Despite his winnings and lavish lifestyle, Massetti has stated that money does not bring him happiness. In 2021, he returned to New Zealand after ending a five-year toxic relationship. In 2018, he faced assault charges against his partner, which were eventually dropped when she failed to appear in court.
Massetti has since spoken out about his life and the challenges he has faced. He has been diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder and severe depression, but he is working towards finding peace and focusing on his health.
