You may have heard of lucky numbers, such as the number “13” or “7”, being considered good luck in certain circles. Well, the same can be said for the number “+600” in betting. If the British are to be believed, the number 600 is very lucky indeed, as it appears in the UK’s Daily Lottery as well as in the football pools, where it’s referred to as a “supernummer”. What is the origin of this lucky number? Let’s take a closer look.
Supernummers And British Lottery
The first documented instance of the number “600” being associated with good luck comes from the UK’s Daily Lottery, which was first launched in 1970. Since then, this number has appeared regularly in the draw, with the last reported draw featuring the number “600” having taken place last month. How often does the number “600” appear in the Daily Lottery? It’s been drawn 121 times and featured in the last draw 17 times.
The lottery is administered by the National Lottery Commission, which is a government body that regulates gaming and betting in the UK, including lotteries. It’s interesting to note that the number “600” features prominently on the commission’s websites, as it does on many other websites and forums that reference the lottery, including the British Lottery’s own website.
Supernummers In Other Countries
The British aren’t the only country where the number “600” is considered to be lucky. As mentioned, it also features prominently in the Daily Lottery, where it has been drawn 119 times and featured in the last draw 17 times. It’s also appeared in the Australian Capital Territory’s Lotteries and in New Zealand’s National Lottery on at least 14 occasions. In fact, if you search Google for “600” and the country you’re in, you’ll get a notification telling you how many times the number has been drawn and if it was featured in the last draw.
Is This Just A Coincidence?
While it’s not necessarily coincidental that the number “600” keeps popping up in such varied places, it is unusual for such a number to be considered lucky. According to the British Lottery, the number “600” is actually a combination of the numbers “3” and “20”. Indeed, the lottery says that these numbers are associated with wealth, status, and/or good fortune.
“600 is a supernummer. It’s been around for a long time and people seem to enjoy giving it a go when the numbers are put in place,” said Ruth Bradley, communications director for the National Lottery Commission. “The number has been in the news a little bit this year as it turned up in the most recent [English] Premier League football transfer news, so perhaps that’s why people are connecting to it now.”
Bradley also said that while the number “600” is associated with the lottery, it doesn’t necessarily have to be used in combination with other numbers. Nevertheless, the British Lottery doesn’t seem to discourage gamblers from combining their picks as the draw for the last 17 numbers featured a combination of sixes and hundreds. Perhaps this is because a grand total of £114.7 million was won, with £71.8 million won by using combination of these numbers. These numbers continued to be popular in subsequent drawings as well.
Lucky In All Countries
Perhaps unsurprisingly given its presence in such diverse places, the number “600” is lucky in almost all countries. Interested readers can check the Daily Lottery for the last 17 draws, where the number has popped up at least 14 times.

The German newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine reports that the number “600” has appeared in its country’s lottery 40 times since it was first drawn in 1968. The number has even been drawn twice in the state-run South Korean Lottery. If you search for “600” and your country code, you’ll be notified of how many times the number has been drawn there and if it was featured in the most recent draw.
All Countries, All The Time
The number “600” also appears regularly in the Italian lottery, where it has been drawn 79 times since it was first launched. It has also appeared in the Greek lottery 12 times and in the online Brazilian lottery Once.ca six times.
What we have here is a truly global appeal for the number “600”. While it might not necessarily be associated with one country, place, or culture, it has the potential to be connected to something or someone in all corners of the world.
More About The National Lottery
The British Lottery is one of the world’s oldest and most reputable lotteries. It was founded in 1966 and has drawn much attention and controversy over the years. The National Lottery is responsible for giving out the daily lottery as well as the annual games like EuroMillions, which are usually held in several countries during the year. While most people in England associate the National Lottery with the daily lottery, it actually administers 19 other games, including Major Millions, which is one of the biggest games of all time, having been drawn 82 times and claiming a jackpot of £126 million back in 1994. The EuroMillions, which is one of the games administered by the National Lottery, is also said to be the world’s most popular lottery. It was first held in 2005 and has been drawing much interest ever since. What started as a way of bringing the European Union together ended up meaning more to Europeans than a way of bringing the country closer. EuroMillions is now a unifying event for all EU members and something that they can all get behind.
The Future Of The National Lottery
The future of the National Lottery is looking bright, as the recent past has shown. While it used to be a pretty mundane organ, handing out cash and prizes for minor lotteries, it now has the potential to be much more. With so many different games now being administered by the National Lottery, along with a surge in popularity for football and betting, it has the potential to go from strength to strength.
Given the recent surge in popularity for the National Lottery and its various games, one can only imagine that people will look to improve their odds of winning. The answer is simple, yet effective: mix things up. The more combinations you use, the better your chance of winning. It’s all about statistics and probability. While it might be obvious that more numbers means a greater chance of scoring, it doesn’t hurt to be reminded every now and then.
