Why You Should Avoid The Most Popular Lottery Numbers

There's a lot more to lottery numbers than merely random selections. They are a compilation of people's “lucky” numbers and very personal decisions for many. Others sift through reams of lottery data to pick the most popular numbers, while others rely on luck and choose random numbers and lucky dips.


Everyone who plays the lottery hopes to win a large sum of money, so it goes without saying that if your numbers show up, you won't want to share your fortune with too many other people. This is the most difficult part of picking the most popular lotto numbers. The following numbers have been drawn the most on Powerball drawings over the last five years: 23, 32, 61, 53, 69, 64, 3, 21, 27, and 62.. As a result, many players utilize the same numbers, despite the fact that no one set of numbers is mathematically more (or less) likely to come up.

That isn't dating advise, but it is a surefire strategy to avoid popular numbers. Many lottery players, according to studies, base their numbers on significant birthdays. Due to the fact that no month has more than 31 days, days 32 and above are commonly overlooked. 

Picking a combination of numbers above and under 31 reduces your chances of winning the big prize.


The history of seven as a lucky number may be traced back to several ancient civilisations all across the world. Its status as a lucky number continues to this day, and it is one of the most popular. 

It is now one of the most overdue numbers in the UK Lotto (note: this is not available at Lottoland), but you can bet it will be on a lot of people's picks when it does show next.


The number 13 has a bad reputation since it is considered unlucky in many cultures, and lottery players avoid using it in their lines for fear of losing everything. Despite its bad associations, the probability of it being drawn is statistically no higher or lower than any other number. 

But here's the scary part: according to a large Lottoland survey, 13 is the least usually picked ball in not one, but eight international lotteries! 

Even yet, if your line does include it and it is chosen, you can bet you'll be one of the very few people who used this ominous number.
