We love using emoji’s, and they can tell you a lot about a person. Whether you're happy, sad, stressed, or excited, there's always a little emoticon to help you emphasize that emotion. We’ve become so used to seeing these little characters that it should be no surprise that lottery balls seem to display their own set of emotions based on their probability of sliding out the lotto machines (or not). For a little festive fun let’s imagine what goes on behind the scenes in the various lotto machines around the world when lottery balls take on playful personalities...
The quirky cast of lottery character balls:
Laughter – lotto number 20 :)
Who better to start off with than, Laughter. This happy-go-lucky guy has one thing on his mind and that is to make everyone insanely happy. Now if there’s one lottery ball that stands out from the crowd, its lottery ball number 20. Why? Because you can’t keep this little guy in the lotto machine. In fact, over the last 10 years, he’s made it to first spot when comes to the most frequently drawn lottery number in the US Powerball game. So with this Wednesday’s jackpot soaring to $119 million – make sure number 20 makes it into your lucky lotto selection and you too will be laughing all the way to the bank.
Sunglasses – lotto number 37
This cool lotto character, loves all the attention. ‘Sunglasses’ likes nothing more than sliding down, music playing as the lottery announcer roars out his number to the world. This cool dude takes it all in his stride, knowing that his making someone’s dream come true – whether it’s a walking into a car dealership and purchasing your brand new supercar or sipping champagne on a luxurious island, remember to do it in style and wear those sunglasses.
Head-bandage – lotto number 35
There’s always that one friend that always seems to get hurt, and when your job dictates that you get tossed around into a dizzying frenzy just before you get tossed out of a noisy, rolling machine, well that’s when your job gets even harder and your head never seems to lose the bandage.
Kiss – lotto number 2
Number 2 is one of the luckiest numbers you can get. It’s no wonder that its also one of the most frequently drawn Powerball numbers as it means ‘double’, ‘twinned’ and ‘again’. Besides, just how many times have you heard the saying, good things comes in two’s?
Surprised – lotto number 31
With so many people selecting their lucky lottery numbers based on their friends and families birthdays, it’s no surprise that the highest number they play and the last one they select on their lottery play blocks. With many lottery games having a selection of numbers much higher than number 31, it’s a good thing that this surprising character makes his appearance as the top Powerball numbers ever drawn.
Envy – lotto number 7
Envy has his place amongst the lotto balls too. He’s more likely to come out as the last main winning lottery ball, just before ‘Crying with laughter’ makes his crazy appearance and the world as you know it changes for the better forever.
Nerdy – lotto number 6
Nerdy is the statistician of the group. After all where do all the algorithms come from? Its Nerdy’s brilliant little mind that dictates who ‘should’ leave the lottery machine and whether they will be a main winning number, a bonus ball number or a Lucky Star number. Whether the likes of Head Bandage or Yawn will listen, that’s another story. That’s where rollovers come from I suppose. Deciphering and analysing lottery statistics, like the hot and cold numbers, odds and then still factoring in pure luck is a hard job for this poor guy. It no wonder that he’s lotto number 6, as it is the first perfect number, meaning that it is the sum of all its divisors, giving him the best possible means to analyse his little lotto friends.
With the US Powerball jackpot once again reaching the epic $119 million mark, Nerdy’s got his hands full, analysing whether or not the most frequently drawn US Powerball number for the past 10 years, the funny guy in the group, 'Laughter' lottery number 20, will stay in place before the number has been officially announced. Thankfully Nerdy's got numbers 37, 2, 31, and 35 who are always ready to jump to attention and head for the limelight, as they too have appeared the most over the past ten years.
High Five – lotto number 5
As a sign of congratulations and celebration it’s no wonder that High Five makes his appearance as a lottery emoticon. Imagine realising that you’ve won the jackpot? The minute you tell someone, they are going to high five you, that’s for sure, making number 5 a very happy chappy indeed.
It’s always funs to create quirky identities for otherwise inanimate objects. We smile and laugh all of the time when one of our co-workers send us anything from a wave , a kiss , a happy smiley , or a hugging bear because we can relate to their feelings and we appreciate their sentiment.
With an array of huge lotto jackpots all available to play from your desktop, smartphone or iPad, make sure you don’t miss out on these exciting lottery draws and facepalm.
