thats why i never played those "popular" numbers.

there was a similar story in HK. I forgot what the numbers were but is like 8,18,28, 5, 15, 25, etc., anyway, you know what i mean.

there was like literally dozens of 1st prize winners to share the jackpot and each got about what normally a 2nd or third prize would pay.

so while you cannot increase the chance of winning, you can definitely increase the winning amount by avoiding popular numbers.

Try telling them that. You shouldn't have picked the winning numbers because ....

Exactly, they have $1.6 million reasons to question your logic.

I would rather be lucky and win a -ev bet than lose a +ev bet.
