luckiest lottery numbers in Canada

The most common winning lottery numbers for games across Canada are revealed in a new report.

Canadian casino review site CasinosHunter analyzed every winning lottery number from three of Canada’s largest lottery games.

The aim was to find which numbers had been drawn the most times, which they say are “the luckiest numbers.” However, it’s not necessarily a predictor of future wins, and the odds of winning any lottery are slim.

CasinosHunter took winning numbers from every Lotto 6/49, Lotto Max, and Daily Grind draw since the lottery games were launched. All three games are administered by the Interprovincial Lottery Corporation (ILC), which is a national organization made up of all the provincial lottery corporations including OLG.

Lotto 6/49 is the oldest game starting in 1982 and it was the first nationwide Canadian lottery game to allow players to choose their own numbers. Lotto Max launched on Sept. 19, 2009, and Daily Grand started on Oct. 18, 2016.

Lotto 6/49 has a $5 million classic draw jackpot. However, the gold ball jackpot can reach up to $68 million The odds of winning the $5 million jackpot are 1 in 13,983,816.

Of the past 4,160 draws, the most commonly drawn Lotto 6/49 numbers are:

CasinosHunter collected data from the Lotto 6/49, Lotto Max and Daily Grand databases.

The data was then analysed to find which numbers appeared the most in each lottery. These were then organized from those that appeared the most to those that appeared the least, to give a final ranking of numbers.

Ontario has the highest number of tickets sold — more than 50 per cent of adults have played the lottery in the last 12 months and 38 per cent are current and consistent lottery players, according to CasinosHunter.

Every year more than $9 billion worth of tickets are sold across Canada. Funds raised support community projects, education and healthcare.
