This Friday, May 13, 2022 Loto draw will be one of the most popular of the year. Not only does FDJ put the sum of 13 million euros into play, but the date is also highly symbolic for the most superstitious. If you want to play the Super Loto this Friday the 13th, here are our tips to save as many chances as possible.
Above all, we recommend to play online on the FDJ.fr website. Why ? Because it’s more secure, because it requires less effort and because you have access to exclusive functions. For example, the MultiChances option is only reserved for players on the internet. It allows you to boost the probability of success by betting up to 600 grids in parallel during this Lotto on Friday the 13th. Opening an online account only takes 2 minutes.
Why is this Friday the 13th Loto popular?
Friday the 13th is always a special date for the most superstitious. At each edition, FDJ puts the small dishes in the big ones by releasing a Super Loto with a record jackpot. She is from 13 million euros on May 13, 2022 with a draw that will take place around 8:50 p.m. Deadline to play is 8:15 p.m. By way of comparison, the more classic Loto draws generally oscillate between 2 and 5 million euros.
Admittedly, the prize pool is lower than for a EuroMillions, but there is a real advantage: the probability of success is much greater. You have a 1 in 6 chance of walking away with a win, and you have a 1 in 19 million chance of finding the winning combination. This is almost 10 times more than the probability of hitting the correct EuroMillions result, hence its popularity.
How is a grid composed for the Super Loto Friday the 13th draw? Like a usual grid, namely 49 numbers and 10 Chance numbers. The winning combination will consist of 5 classic numbers and 1 Chance number. The latter is often called the “additional number”. You have the possibility of ticking more numbers (more expensive) and you will therefore have a greater chance of winning something.
There is also another solution to maximize your chances of success, and it is exclusively available online. Called MultiChances, this option allows Friday the 13th Loto players to take a position on 100 or 600 grids at the same time. It doesn’t cost much more: 6 euros for a slice of the 100 grid cake, and 9 euros for the 600 grids. This allows you to diversify your risks, even if it means earning a little less.
In terms of prices, the Super Loto grid for this Friday, May 13 is at the same price as normal. It is therefore necessary to count 3 euros for a simple grid. It’s all to your advantage: the jackpot is significantly higher than the norm, so it’s in your interest to focus on the most generous operations. Mid-tier winners also get more than usual.
Which number to choose or avoid for the draw?
Above all, keep in mind that the Loto Friday 13th draw is the result of chance. Each of the draws is independent and therefore past results are not indicative of future results. It is therefore technically irrelevant to rely on past figures to put in place a rational strategy for this Super Loto.
That said, we can still have in mind the numbers that are frequently drawn in the Loto draw. On the official FDJ website, you can discover a table with the most popular numbers since November 2019. In this case, the number 22 is the one that is drawn the most (52 times, around 12.75% of the draws) . Follow the numbers 26 and 31 which each fell 51 times.
Among the least popular numbers are the number 1 which is the ugly duckling of the Loto draw. It was drawn only 30 times, or 7.35% of draws. Then there are the numbers 20, 34 and 45 which are also in strong lack of popularity. Are they therefore more likely to fall in this super Loto draw? No, the probability is the same for each number.
What about the last Super Lotto draw on Friday the 13th? It took place on August 13, 2021 and it also put 13 million euros at stake. The winning combination was 7, 11, 40, 41, 48 with the Chance number being 10. Once again, the past results of Loto draws do not predict what may happen on this Friday evening, May 13, 2022.
Of course, there’s a lot of superstition about the Friday the 13th draw. Most people play their lucky number and they’re right! The chance of winning is the same as if you make calculations on numbers that have fallen in the past. You might as well have fun and try to find a causal link between the gain you will (perhaps) win and your favorite numbers.
A bonus for 50 players at this Loto
If winning the super jackpot this Friday the 13th is unlikely, you have a real chance of leaving with a few things. There is in particular the draw of 50 players who will leave with a check for 20,000 euros. It is therefore 1 million euros that will be paid for this Super Loto draw on Friday May 13, guaranteed between several players.
Indeed, the Super Loto itself is not guaranteed: it is possible that no one finds the right combination in which case the jackpot will be rolled over next week. On the other hand, FDJ guarantees one million euros for 50 people who will be drawn. For each Lotto draw entry ticket, you receive a unique code. FDJ will then draw 50 codes to designate the winners of the guaranteed pot.
