Secret lottery formula?

A Wisconsin woman and her accountant husband who claims he's developed a formula for lottery picks have each claimed $350,000 jackpots--twice. Verlyn and Judith Adamson claimed two $350,000 jackpots on Monday because each held a winning ticket in the state SuperCash drawing last Saturday. They didn't mention at the time that they also held two more of the winning tickets.

Verlyn Adamson said earlier in the week that he's a big fan of math puzzles. He claims he developed a formula for lottery picks, but his winnings have been small until now. The couple's lawyer, Scott Thompson, said the Adamsons are "exploring patent protection" for the equation. (By the way, the Wisconsin state lottery seems rife with statistical oddities, as you can see in the WISN video below.)
