The high prize pool invites you to play, but the odds of winning are always negligible. The odds of hitting 6 are 13 times lower than getting hit by a lightning. The probability of matching the first number drawn is 1 in 90, the probability of matching the second is 1 in 89, and so on. Center 6 numbers on the 90 extractable, this is to win, that’s a one in 622,614,630 chance. If you play system, columns or more numbers for all the draws of the year (3 per week) the odds increase, but even reaching 1 in 4 million it is always easier for an asteroid to hit the Earth.

Over the years, many mathematicians have dismantled the beliefs and ideas that belong to so many players. There are no numbers latecomers because at each draw you start all over again, and there is not even the possibility that playing the same numbers always brings a greater chance of winning, rather it enslaves the doubt that if you don’t play them they will come out and the disappointment would be double.

Supernalotto is one of the games with the largest prize pools, but it is also one of those with the lowest probability of winning: it is easier to win at Scratch and Win but promises more limited amounts. Roulette has a probability of 1 in 38 betting on a single number, almost one in 650 thousand the odds of having a royal flush served in poker at the first hand.

So to win on what do you need to aim for the superenalotto? Choose numbers less chosen by the others, to divide the eventual winnings with a smaller number of players. Those of the dates of birth are inflated: from 1 to 12 as the months and from 1 to 31 for the days. The most played numbers of all are 8, 3, 7, 9, 11, 5, 19, 10, 12, 90 and those that form columns or diagonals on the ticket. But of course it’s all coincidence.
