Australia’s gone Lotto-mad with the $100 million division one prize on offer tonight.
Roughly a third of Aussie adults are expected to have an entry, but which numbers have been the luckiest most recently?
In the past 16 months, 17 and 2 have been drawn the most, and 12 and 26 have been drawn the least.
And regarding the all-important Powerball, 3, 13 and 19 were the most frequent, while 1 and 18 were least.
“Players interested in trying their hand at choosing their numbers may mark ‘hot’ numbers in the hope they live up to their reputation of being drawn more often,” The Lott spokeswoman Lauren Cooney said.
“Or would they choose to use ‘cold’ numbers in the belief their turn to be drawn is just around the corner?
“We’ve even had previous winners tell us they avoid both sets of ‘hot’ and ‘cold’ numbers, instead picking those numbers that aren’t getting any attention.”
