REVEALED: Numbers most likely to win Saturday's $21m lotto
GOLDEN Casket has crunched the data from 2016's six Superdraw events to uncover similarities between the 90 lotto tickets that have won a Superdraw division one prize.
Golden Casket spokeswoman Belinda McDougall said this Saturday's $21 Million Superdraw will be the seventh Superdraw event to be held this year.
She said Golden Casket were hoping to help punters win the jackpot by revealing some Superdraw secrets.
"While it's an entertaining game of chance, superstitious players may like to have some Superdraw secrets up their sleeve," she said.
"If players are searching for numbers which might win them a slice of the Superdraw prize, they may like to know the most frequently drawn number across the six Superdraws so far this year is the number 31 which has been drawn three times.
"Coming in second are the numbers 1, 2, 3, 8, 10, 24, 27, 28, 40, 44 and 45 which have each been drawn twice.
"Of the Lott's 75 division one winning Superdraw entries this year, the most common ticket type is a 50-game entry which has won 10 division one prizes in Superdraws so far this year.
"While almost half (44.0%) of the Lott's 75 division one winning Superdraw entries this year have been a System entry (33 System entries overall), a System 8 entry is the 2nd most common division one entry type winning eight division one prizes so far in 2016.
"Finally, 17.3% of the Lott's division one winning Superdraw entries this year have been Syndicate entries (13 syndicates) and 16% division one winning tickets were purchased online (12 online entries)."
Ms McDougall said Superdraw events are perfect for Gold Lotto players who want to dream even bigger since the statistics show they commonly deliver the million dollar dream for division one winners.
"The average number of division one winners in Superdraw events this year has been 15 in each super-sized prize pool draw, with these winners enjoying an average division one prize of $1,488,888.88," Ms McDougall explained.
"In fact in 2016, there have been 90 division one winning Superdraw entries nationally each worth more than $1 million - so I imagine there are plenty of million dollar dreams already coming true for those winners across the country."
It's expected that more than 1.29 million customers will purchase an entry into the $21 Million Superdraw on Saturday with approximately 161,331 tickets processed each hour - that's 2,688 per minute or 44 per second.
