These are the 2 best known myths:
By playing the same number every week you increase your chances of winning for every week you play
It isn’t true. Every new lotto draw starts with exactly the same conditions. It doesn’t make a difference if it’s the same line or a new line- the likelihood of winning is exactly the same and is governed completely by chance. There is only one way to increase your chances of winning – by playing more lotto lines. So playing the same number every week is very common and I do so myself – it’s so practical and easy.
The winning numbers can be predicted by mathematicians and computers
This is not true. The winning numbers in lotto are chosen randomly and cannot be predicted.
Now let’s leave the myths and look at how players usually play lotto.
Do people play the same number on lotto?
Are the chosen lotto lines completely random or are there similarities? Do some numbers get chosen more often than others?
Yes, certain combinations are played more often than others. The combination 1-2-3-4-5-6-7 is popular, if that line wins there will be many who share the prize money.
The following numbers are over represented on coupons, in decreasing order with the absolutely most common number (21) first:
21 9 27 3 8 15 17 28 22 16 10 33 26 11 4 5 14 7 29 2
If you want to create a completely random line then you could make small paper notes with numbers on them, mix them and draw out one number at a time. With the Liechtenstein Lotto you just press a button and completely random lines are generated. If you’re not happy with them, you just press again, and a new line comes up.
Randomly generated lines (which don't contain several of the numbers on the list) increase your chances of being the sole winner.
Don't forget that to have any possibility of winning you must to go on and play.
