Michael, Marie, Matthew, Matilda – whatever your name is, if it starts with the letter “M”, you are more likely to win the lottery than anyone else.
In fact, in the 12 months to December 31, 2021, players with a first starting M won 10.6% of all first division winnings in all lottery games.
This was a change of value as such, given that the letter J received the most victories in the first division in 2019 and 2020, falling to 9.64% in 2021.
Rebecca, Roberts, Raymond and Rachels are not lagging behind, the initial R brought home 8.12% of last division’s wins last year.
The statistics are derived from the random giant The Lott, who delved into last year’s data to reveal the initials of the name, gender and age trends among the winners of the first division in all 2021 lottery games.
For players with the first initial A or D message, don’t lose hope, as in 2021, both accounted for 7.87% of all victories.
The same cannot be said of Uriel, Xaver and Zayn around the world: no one with last names starting with the letter U, X or Z will win the first division lottery prize in 2021.
And there was also only one division, one winner in each of the initial starts with F and Q.
In terms of age, players over the age of 60 won the top prizes in the 2021 lottery, taking home more than 30% of the winnings.
However, players under the age of 50 took almost half of all victories in the first division (48.12%).
And only one player in the 90s and 100s won the first division in 2021.
Finally, gender figures show that last year more than 61% of the winners in the first division were men.
How Lot get ready for the $ 20 million super draw this weekend, says spokeswoman Eli Ramsami, regardless of the data, everyone who has a ticket has a chance.
“Regardless of your name, date of birth or gender, anyone who has a Saturday lottery ticket in hand before the end of this weekend’s draw has a chance to win a share of the prize.
“I am sure only that the Saturday lottery is a gamble that gives you the opportunity to become the winner of the first division in each draw!
