Experts recommend playing unusual combinations when playing the lotto. This way, if you win, you are less likely to share your winnings with others. But what qualifies as “unusual” and normal? One of the best ways to find trends is by looking at the Wednesday lotto results winners. Not as many people play the Wednesday lotto so it is easier to analyze the Wednesday lotto results than the Saturday results.
There are some interesting trends which show up in just the last week of Wednesday lotto results winners. Usually, about 200-300 thousand people win at least something on the Wednesday lotto. You can expect 0-1 Match 6 winner, about 1-4 Match 5 plus bonus winners, and about 200 Match 5 winners. There are usually thousands of Match 4 winners and hundreds of thousands will Match 3 Wednesday lotto results.
On one recent drawing, the Wednesday lotto results were 9, 25, 29, 32, 37, 38 and bonus 28. There were a total of 266,462 winners broken down into: 0 match 6 winners, 2 match 5 plus bonus winners, 167 match 5 winners, 12,326 match 4 winners, and 253,967 match 3 winners.
Compare these Wednesday lotto results winners to another drawing of 3, 5, 8, 9, 18, 44 and bonus 42. These Wednesday lotto results had an impressive 499,840 total winner – almost twice as many from the other drawing! This isn’t because there were more people playing either because the prize fund was just 1.6 million compared to 2.4 million for the other drawing. This combination of numbers produced 3 jackpot winners, 14 match 5 plus bonus, 584 match 5, 30,185 match 4, and 469,054 match 3 winners.
Lottery analysts would be able to instantly tell you why this drawing had so many more winners than the other Wednesday lotto results. Simply, most people pick their numbers in some pattern. Surprisingly, many people pick consecutive numbers. According to one study, about 10 thousand people play the combination of 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 for their picks each drawing! We don’t have the specific numbers but we can assume that lots of other people are also playing other consecutives like 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 or 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10. Anyone playing this combination would have gotten a Match 3 win with the Wednesday lotto results.
We can’t say what caused the 3 winners with all of the Wednesday lotto results to pick their numbers in that exact way. However, there does seem to be a bit of a trend – and when the Wednesday lotto results are in a pattern or trend, you will have to split up any big earnings. It would have been better for someone to choose the apparently random numbers from the other Wednesday lotto results and take home the entire jackpot for themselves rather than splitting it up with a bunch of lucky others.
