My retirement plan is to win the lottery at some point in the next in the next 20 years and there may be so weeks which are better to win than others, such as a mega rollover week, but there are almost weeks when you think you may be thinking champagne but all you get is ribena.
Weeks such as this weeks where a fluke meant that Lotto ticket holders with five winning numbers won less than those who matched three numbers.
Lottery organiser Camelot earlier revealed that more than 4,082 punters had matched five of the six balls and won just £15 each of the pot set aside for five winning balls.
The winning Lotto numbers were 07, 14, 21, 35, 41, 42, and the bonus number was 43 which are obvious popular but there has been several thousand draws since the lottery began in 1994 so we should be able to see a pattern in the numbers drawn and the National Lottery has shared the top six most drawn Lotto balls.
The numbers to scratch on your card are 11, 23, 25, 31, 33 and 38 but now that they have thrown another 10 numbers in the mix the odds are matching all 6 one in 45 million which is still better than the Euromillions where the odds are one in 116 million.
As the advert says 'It Might Be You', but it most probably won't be.
