Cries of ’scam’ over consecutive numbers in the st Lotto Powerball jackpot. Is the Lotto a scam: Consecutive numbers in the latest Powerball cause public distrust?
Last night’s winning lottery numbers has caused a stir on social media, with people calling it a scam.
– not a coincidence – and someone jokingly suggesting on Twitter that ‘’in order to put this to rest, all those 20 winners must be shown on TV. If not, we demand a Zondo Commission’’.
By choosing consecutive numbers – 5, 6, 7, 8, 9; Powerball: 10 – the 20 winners ignored the advice on the SA Lotto website to avoid betting six consecutive numbers. They will each receive R5 688 468.21 of the R114 million jackpot.
‘’Six consecutive numbers have never been drawn in any state or international Lotto game. I have all the drawing results for more than 180 state and international Lotto games, going back more than fifty years! Even five consecutive numbers is a very rare occurrence that, in most Lotto games, has never happened once,” the website stated.
The Ithuba National Lottery is a SCAM!!!! THE LOTTO IS FAKE!! FAKE GHOST WINNERS!! FAKE JACKPOTS! FAKE FAKE FAKE!! Someone should investigate it…LONG OVERDUE! https://t.co/E2jKhH3R6r
