The most lucky and unlucky lotto numbers.Online lottery enthusiasts are superstitious when it comes to playing the lottery, and with certain numbers bringing in more lotto luck than others. Have a look at the lucky and unlucky lotto numbers:
Lucky number 7
for those online lottery players who have ever played a game of Bingo, you will know that whenever number 7 appears, the announcer pushes his chest out and proclaims, “Lucky number 7guys!” Number 7 is universally popular, with people always scrolling through a raffle ticket at the local fete to jot their name down next to number 7. Other lucky 7’s are the seven days of the week, seven seas, seven continents, seven wonders of the world, seven colors in the rainbow, Snow White ran off with seven dwarves, and when Ian Fleming was looking for a code for James Bond, he didn’t go for 006 or 008, he went with 007, which just sounded better.
Lucky number 8
Number 8 is a very lucky number in China, as eight is a homonym for prosperity, and when pronounced it sounds like the word “prosper” and “wealth”. Furthermore, a double eight, as in 88, is said to bring double joy.
Top Unlucky Lotto Numbers
Unlucky number 13
The phrase, “Houston, we have a problem,” comes from Apollo 13 that launched April 11, 1970 at 13:13 CST. On April 13 an on-board explosion forced the mission to be aborted. Even though there are 13 stripes on the American flag symbolizing the 13 colonies that rebelled against British rule. These 13 colonies became the first 13 states, the number 13 is still the most universally unlucky number out there.
Unlucky number 17
In Italy, 17 is often considered an unlucky number. This is because when written out in Roman numerals (XVII) it can create an anagram VIXI which translates to “I am dead” or “My life is over” in Latin.
Numbers That Are Both Lucky & Unlucky
Number 4 constantly brings either good luck or bad luck, depending where in the world you are. On one hand we have the Irish and Celtic culture, who see the 4 leaf clover as a sign of good luck and good fortune, but in China the number 4 is feared and avoided, as the pronunciation is similar to the Chinese world for death.
In 2015 Lotto New Zealand announced that the luckiest Powerball number is number no.9 as it came up the most, and won lotto player’s huge amounts of money.
In Chinese culture, the number 9 is also a fabulous number as it’s associated with the emperor as it sounds similar to the character for “long-lasting”. On the other hand, in Japan the number 9 is feared because it sounds like “torture.”
The choice is yours whether or not you want to play number 9, but whatever you do, make sure you do play Powerball today.
Whether you love them or hate them, numbers play an important role in our daily lives. Without them we won’t know how to plan our day.
