Lottery

Apparently if your house number is 3 you have more chance of winning the Lottery than the rest of us.

What a load of tosh.

I heard it was if you bought a ticket you had more chance of winning...

*goes and buys lottery ticket*

The probability of winning is the same whether you live in number 3 or 3003.

There are two '3's in my house number so I stand twice as much chance of winning.

Haven't yet.

Funny, that. :roll:

There has to be ,they cant have all sold the exact same number of winning tickets, Now that would be spooky,

Mine is a multiple of 3...............does that work????

The statistic comes from the number of people who have won the lottery and the house number 3 coming up most frequently.

This isn't too surprising given that 99.9% of roads are going to have numbers 1 2 and 3 (even very short roads) whereas by the time you get up to 10+ there are enough short roads to make it less likely that winners will be living in those larger numbers. The lower the number in the road, the higher the chances that people with your number will be playing the lottery and therefore the higher that number will come up more often.

The fact that it is number 3 and not 1 or 2 is purely down to chance - there are not enough roads with only 1 or 2 houses to make a significant dent in the odds. Some 2 house roads will contain a number 3 anyway if the 2 houses are both on the same side of the road.

My address has a number 3 in it and I'm born on the 31st March ...3 .... does that make me have a better chance on winning the lottery................ probably not lol... not won a thing in ages!
