Everyone wants to find ways to make money, but Philadelphia native Erica Mouzon has found creative, luck-based ways to do so, writes Justin Udo for KYW Newsradio.

Mouzon likes to take part in various sweepstakes.

What started out as a hobby and a way to supplement her income about a decade ago, has helped her make a ton of money.

“I believe I’ve won well over $200,000 in cash and prizes,” said Mouzon.

Her list of winnings include an Audi Quattro, multiple cruises, a trip to the 2022 World Cup, and other trips to Turks and Caicos, as well as Japan.

Mouzon credits her success in these sweepstakes to practices she learned from a group, Philly Cheesestakers, which is comprised of people sharing both their love and knowledge of sweepstakes.

Members of the group sporadically come together to provide each other with tips and tricks, and impending contests.

Mouzon likens her sweepstakes successes to winning the lottery without having to spend any money, only time.

Her advice to others who may want to participate in this hobby is to simply start playing and be persistent.
