Are YOU playing the luckiest lottery numbers

Drawing '16' is nearly 50 times more common than the 18 ball, new analysis reveals

More than 1,500 draws were scrutinised across 15 international lotteries 
The number 16 was drawn 191 times, while 18 was only drawn four times  
Your odds of winning the EuroMillions is still approximately one in 116 million


The bad news: your odds of winning the lottery are dismally low.

In fact, you're four times more likely to get struck by lightening, crushed by a meteor or killed by a vending machine.

The good news is that, according to new analysis, some numbers do appear to be 'luckier' than others - with 16 being by far the most commonly drawn and 18 being the most uncommon over the last year.

The research, carried out by online betting platform Jackpot, looked at winning lottery numbers from the past 12 months around the world.
Over 1,500 draws were scrutinised across 15 international lotteries including EuroMillions, UK Lotto, US Powerball, and Irish Lotto. 
The 'luckiest' number was deemed to be 16, drawn 191 times over the past year, followed by the number 22 which was drawn 179 times. 

Players may want to steer clear of the number 18, however, which was only drawn four times last year, followed by the number 46, only drawn five times, and the number 40, only drawn six.
According to the site, EuroMillions is a firm favourite for Brits looking to make their fortune - though your odds of winning are approximately one in 116 million.
The odds of winning the the UK lotto, on the other hand, is one in 45 million.  

Whilst most global lotteries draw numbers between one and 50, Germany has one of the only lotteries that people can choose zero as a bonus number, with this number making one lucky person a €23.5M jackpot winner in March this year.

Another unusual lottery sees Italy’s SuperEnalotto offering punters a choice of 90 numbers – increasing the odds of winning the jackpot to 1 in 622,614,630.

So is there a particularly well-performing sequence? 
UK-based analyst Richard Lloyd revealed in March that if you had selected the ticket 03 06 13 23 27 49 in every draw since the National Lottery began, you would have won £2,017,671 in prizes thus far.
