Making it big on the first try

Growing up in Romani, a poor country in East Europe, Mandel as well as many other people in his country tried lottery hoping that they could make a little money from it. It took a while for the math teacher to come up with a formula that stands 83% of winning the jackpot. 

In fact, the man won the jackpot in his first try and brought home a reward of 72,783 Romania leu (874,839 peso). It was a valuable prize back in the 1950s as it is equivalent to 18 years of his salary. 

Having enough money to leave the poor country, Mandel decided to settle down in Australia and continued to rock the lottery system of the country as well as the UK for several times. He soon discovered a new fonular for the UK and Australia lottery system which worked properly. In addition to that, the economist started up a business, seeking investors and hiring an army of ticket buyers to purchase as many tickets as possible.

The biggest deal ever

In fact, his gamble business is completely legal as there weren't any laws or rules against his act. However, until his 13th time of winning the jackpot, laws were passed which made it harder for the mathematician to continue his business. He continued to seek opportunities from the Virginia lottery system. In the state, he made the biggest deal ever and walked away with $27 million. 

The man would have continued his business in some other countries if he hadn't been arrested in Israel in 2004. He ran the same things in the country but failed to get the jackpot and was sued by his investors. However, the story of Stefan Mandel is still one of the most infamous stories in lottery history.
