As regular readers will have concluded from our news item on ‘pink numbers’ yesterday, the selections included on any given lottery ticket don’t affect the odds positively or negatively. The odds of winning any prize in the EuroMillions game with a single entry are around 1 in 13, and that is the case whether you play lucky numbers, meaningful dates or a completely random selection.
Since the method used to select numbers for the EuroMillions game doesn’t affect the odds of success, many players like to keep track of which numbers have performed well or not so well in the past and make their selections in light of those observations. Players who don’t have the time or inclination to keep their own records of such things can take heart from the fact that there is a very well maintained EuroMillions Statistics page over at Euro-Millions.com which details all of the facts that players are most likely to be interested in knowing.
Right now, according to the stats page mentioned a moment ago, the most overdue main numbers are 34, 16, 04, 21 and 47, and the most overdue Lucky Star numbers are 04 and 09. Players who prefer following so-called ‘hot numbers’ will want to note that the most often picked main numbers are 50, 04, 11, 44 and 38, whilst the most often picked Lucky Star numbers are 05 and 03.
We won’t know if any of those numbers will help anyone to win the €21 / £17 million jackpot until the draw tonight, but good luck to everyone who intends to get involved in the Tuesday EuroMillions game and be sure to check back here tomorrow for our round-up of the results!
