It certainly is possible.
I have done that for both the California and Oregon State USA lotteries.
However, for some reason my name still does appear on the Forbes 400 list.

Yes, it is quite trivial.

Pick a random set of numbers for that lottery, for example 5 of 47 and
1 of 27 numbers.

I predict that the winning lottery number is anything but the one you
pick :-).
