April Fool’s Prank – The Winning Ticket

Since tonight is a Powerball drawing night, I thought it would be the perfect day to introduce Prank #3. This is about the cruelest prank you can pull on a buddy…making him think he just won the lottery. It’s easier to fool those who play Powerball on a regular basis, but I’ll show you how to do it even if they don’t.

Here’s how it works. You need to record tonight’s drawing, probably on DVR to make it more believable. Then, tomorrow or Friday, purchase a ticket with tonight’s winning number on it. Find out ahead of time how many numbers your friend plays regularly so you can replace their ticket with one that looks the same. If they don’t play, just get 2 or 3 more numbers on the same ticket so it doesn’t look too obvious and tell your friend you’ll share the pot if you win. Then, on Saturday night, get your buddy near the TV where you have Wednesday night’s drawing ready to play. I’d suggest turning the volume down and saying something like, “Hey guys…they’re about to pull the numbers for tonight’s jackpot.” Hit play, turn up the volume and watch your unsuspecting soon-to-be ex-friend track the numbers. You’ll have to peel him off the walls when he realizes he’s a millionaire. How long you let the prank play out is up to you. Just be prepared for the backlash when you tell him April Fool’s. Plan your escape ahead of time!
