Amazing Lottery Facts
Sometimes it's better not to be #1
LOTTO 649, Canada's national lottery, will celebrate its 30th birthday on June 12th, and three years ago, in an odd occurrence, there were a series of winners who selected numbers in the 40s range. The outcome of this was thousands of first prizewinners who split the top prize because they selected number sequences. And those who came in second were disappointed because the third prize was much larger than the second prize. The verdict: No specific number will give you an edge.
