For greater odds, a lottery expert advises against choosing birthday or anniversary dates. Richard Wheeler responded to Inside Edition by saying, “Well, just because that’s what a lot of people do.” According to Wheeler, picking greater numbers will increase a player’s chances of winning. According to a lottery specialist, selecting specific numbers, such as anniversary dates, is discouraged and that greater numbers offer better chances of winning.
Richard Wheeler responded to Inside Edition by saying, “Well, just because that’s what a lot of people do.” Consider that you share birthdays and anniversaries with other persons from one to twelve.
Wheeler advised the publication that choosing high numbers instead of low ones would increase the likelihood of only having the winning ticket.
What you can do to improve your chances is choose numbers that are slightly higher; typically, this means choosing numbers in the 60s, he said. “The numbers in the last three drawings have been in the 60s, which is why it has rolled over because no one is choosing those numbers,”
He made these remarks after the Mega Millions jackpot rose to $1.28 billion and no one has claimed the award since April 15, according to The Associated Press .
The enormous reward from Friday’s lottery was claimed by someone in Illinois, according to an AP report on Saturday. Mega Ball was 14, and the winning numbers were 13-36-45-57-67. The winner has not yet come forward to accept their prize.
Ohio Lottery Director Pat McDonald said in an news release that the organization was “thrilled to have witnessed one of the largest prize victories in Mega Millions history.” We can’t wait to congratulate the winner and are anxious to learn who won!
