One set of numbers has proven incredibly popular time and time again across the many 6/49 format lottery games out there.

Here is the most popular set of lottery numbers in the world:

7 – 14 – 21 – 28 – 35 – 42

It should be fairly obvious that the above line incorporates multiples of 7. Starting at the number 7 each successive number increases by another 7 until the maximum of 6 individual numbers is reached.


The multiples of 7

Lucky Seven!

So why the number 7? We are not sure as there does not seem to anything traditionally lucky about this number. It is however peppered throughout many cultures, traditions and religions for example, there are 7 days of the week.

More importantly, does taking increasing multiples of one number stand you a better chance of winning the lotto? The answer is no, every number has just as big or small a chance of being selected as any other. The best way to increase your odds of winning is to simply enter more tickets into the draw.

In fact, we are steering well clear of this very popular number combination. Even if it did prove to be a jackpot winning combination you would surely have to share the jackpot with many other people – where is the fun in that?

It reminds us a bit of the popular LOST lottery numbers! 9,078 fans of the popular TV series LOST all played the famous set of lottery numbers from the show.

There are no lucky numbers in this lotto world. All the numbers have a equal chance to become lucky.
