Lottery probed as 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10 drawn

Recommended Posts

An unusual sequence of numbers drawn in South Africa's national lottery has sparked accusations of fraud after 20 people won a share of the jackpot.

Tuesday's PowerBall lottery saw the numbers five, six, seven, eight and nine drawn, while the PowerBall itself was, you have guessed it, 10.

The organisers say the sequence is often picked. But some have alleged a scam and an investigation is under way.

It is extremely rare for multiple winners to share the jackpot.

In South Africa corruption is order of the day there. I won't be surprised at all if it was found that someone was involved.

You think it’s a double bluff?

If you’re going to rig something, you wouldn’t go 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10. These numbers would obviously be more open to scrutiny than unrelated numbers. 

Although there’s the same probability of these numbers being chosen as any other combination; would be an interesting move for  someone trying to game the system.
