Why You Should Avoid The Most Popular Lottery Numbers
There is so much more to lottery numbers than just arbitrary picks. For many they are a collection of people's most significant numbers and are deeply personal choices. Others carefully wade through reams of lottery information to carefully select the most frequently chosen numbers, while some put their faith in blind luck and opt for random selections and lucky dips. Those who opt for the most popular lottery numbers should be wary however, as there is a whole host of pitfalls that come with them.
The Most Popular Lottery Numbers
Everyone who participates in the lottery does so with the aim of winning a vast sum of money, so it goes without saying that if your numbers come up, you won't want to be sharing with too many other people.
This is where the biggest problem with selecting the most popular lottery numbers arises. In the UK the following numbers have been drawn the most: 23, 40, 38, 33, 30, 25. Many players therefore use them likewise, despite no set of number being mathematically more (or indeed less) likely than any other combination to come out the machine.
Of course if that combination should ever tumble out one Wednesday or Saturday evening, unless the jackpot is something unusually large, chances are the jackpot will end up being shared between with hundreds, if not thousands, of others.
When you have just beaten odds of millions to one, you don't want to see that multi million-pound sum to be split so many ways that you walk off with mere thousands.
