Tips For Picking EuroMillions Numbers For €163 Million Draw

The EuroMillions jackpot has skyrocketed to €163 million after nobody managed to match the full winning line on Friday night. The only way to guarantee success is to cover every combination of numbers, but are there any other ways you can choose numbers to try and boost your chances of winning?

Statistical Numbers

You can use EuroMillions statistics to see which numbers have been drawn most frequently, and which numbers are the most overdue. If you want to base your selection on which numbers have been drawn most since EuroMillions was launched in 2004, the stats suggest you should pick 50, 44, 10, 19 and 4, with Lucky Stars 8 and 9. The most overdue numbers are 34, 23, 16, 19 and 33, with Lucky Stars 6 and 7.

Random Numbers

Every combination has an equal chance of winning, even if you select the numbers 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5, with Lucky Stars 6 and 7. However, the benefit of using random numbers is that you are less likely to have to share a big prize if you do win, as lots of other players may be using obvious patterns or sequences.

It is also a good idea to pick at least one number above 31 for a similar reason, as many players use important dates to choose their numbers. You can opt for a Quick Pick whether you are playing online or via an authorised retailer, and the process is quick and simple.

Play Online

You can go to any authorised retailer in Ireland to play EuroMillions, but you will then have to keep your ticket safe, check the winning numbers and come forward within 90 days. If you choose numbers online, there is no danger of missing out as everything will be stored safely in the system and you will be paid out automatically.
