These are the luckiest lotto numbers in the UK

Everyone in the UK would love to know what the upcoming lottery numbers are going to be. Of course, they would. But it’s not possible to know in advance. However, some numbers are deemed luckier than others, and having this knowledge could be of great use to some lottery players.

It makes sense, right? Gamblers are always looking for ways to gain an edge on the house, and where the lottery is concerned, knowing which numbers are “lucky” is a great way to go about it. And the same applies to those who partake in other forms of gambling, such as playing roulette and even the best slots games, which are renowned for paying out massive jackpots.

To determine which numbers are luckier than others, research has been conducted over the previous twelve months, and believe it or not, the number 58 is considered the most lucky after appearing in the most jackpot results. And let’s face it, players are out to win the jackpot.

The numbers 57, 39 and 37 were also proven to be regular appearance makers where the jackpot is concerned, which is interesting as 58 and 57 and 39 and 37 are closely linked to each other in terms of their numerical values. The number 43 is the ball that comes out of the machine on the least occasions.

Lottery draws take place on Wednesday and Saturday evenings, with it costing £2 to select six numbers between 1 and 59. Lottery Texts conducted all the research between February 2022 and February 2023. And lottery players will now be looking to put their findings into action moving forwards.

Common numbers also included 44, 33, 50, 13, 20 and 53, as they also appeared quite often in the all-important jackpot draws. 14, 46, 21 and 38 also appeared a similar amount of times, and so did 30, 34, 11 and 23. Interestingly, many deem the number 13 unlucky, but its average jackpot value is £5,660,847, which isn’t bad at all.

The number 8 doesn’t appear as often as those mentioned above, but after analysing its average jackpot value and seeing it’s worth £9,585,732 and that it was the highest average jackpot value during the study, means it’s a number that some will now go out and include in their selections more often as a result.

Speaking about the study, LotteryTexts said, “The Lotto was introduced in 1994 and continues to be played by millions across the UK. It is common practice for people to choose the same numbers each week as a superstition. However, this research provides insight into whether your numbers need adapting to those favoured by the draw.

“The famous question ‘What would you do if you won the lottery’ plays on everyone’s minds, and any observation that gets people a little closer to this life-changing win can be very welcomed.”

Knowing which numbers appear more often than others, especially in jackpot draws, is an advantage in some respects. But then, on the other hand, the lottery remains a game of chance, like many other forms of gambling. Maybe a study over a longer period would be more revealing?
