There are still a few weeks until Spain's famous Christmas Lottery Draw 2023 and there are already millions of people up and down the country who have got their tickets. And many more are still looking for their lucky winning number, the one they place all their hopes on.
Superstition is ever present in this lottery draw. But are there numbers which have a better chance of winning than others? According to the laws of probability, that is the mathematical calculations that evaluate the possibility of something happening, all the numbers have the same possibility of being drawn.
At least in theory, because the truth is that, in practice, there are some numbers which have never won the jackpot, indeed some truly cursed numbers.
According to statistics provided by State Society for State Lotteries and Bets (SELAE), the big jackpot prize (El Gordo) for the Christmas lottery has never ended in 09, 10, 21, 25, 31, 34, 41, 42, 43, 51, 54, 59, 67, 78 or 82.
Is it a reason to avoid these numbers on our lottery tickets, or perhaps a chance to change its bad luck?
