A Statistical Approach for Winning Lottery — Group Wins $13M!

A group of scientists and academics in Britain have come up with an approach for picking lottery numbers that appears to have a higher probability of success than picking randomly. After several years of playing the numbers, at a total investment of $8700, they finally just won $13M. I wonder what their method is and if they can reproduce it on a larger scale. Conceivably they shuld be able to increase their efforts using their winnings in order to win again in less time. If they can pull that off then it looks like lotteries are dead, unless someone invents a new kind of game that is immune to this solution.
