South Africa’s national lottery draw produces rare set of winning numbers

Calls for a probe has risen after South Africa’s national lottery threw up winning numbers - 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10. Twenty players ended up winning the PowerBall jackpot, winning 5.7 million rand (£279,000) each. The combination of consecutive numbers led to scrutiny on social media, with some accusing the draw of being ’rigged’. The National Lotteries Commission was dismissive of the allegations.

So 20 people won, and people think it was rigged? Where's the reality check at? I'd be more concerned about every time noone wins the lottery.

Rare set of winning numbers? It's as rare as any other set of numbers.

This really supports the fact it's not rigged. A person would never rig it to sequence. Only a random process would produce that sequence.

As likely as any other set of numbers.

The numbers aren't surprising. I'm surprised people played those numbers.

It's all okay. At least it wasn't racist. /s

People need to learn how probability works, then they wouldn't be shocked by this outcome. This is no more unlikely than any other sequence of numbers. 🤦‍♂️
