The Best Way to Choose Your Numbers for the £15M Health Millions Super Jackpot

The Best Way to Choose Your Numbers for the £15M Health Millions Super Jackpot
Updated: Tuesday 17th November 2020

The next Health Millions Super Jackpot event is set to take place on Thursday 29th October and will put a jackpot worth £15 million up for grabs. You can bet today, but what’s the best way to choose your numbers? Find out about the different methods before taking your chance at the £15 million Super Jackpot.

To participate in Health Millions, you have to pick six numbers from 1 to 50 and one Health Ball from 1 to 5, and you win the jackpot by matching all of them. The following methods can help you narrow down your options ahead of Thursday’s Super Jackpot.

Choose Your Favourite Numbers

The first and most personal way to choose your numbers is to go for those that mean something to you. That’s a broad category and could encompass anything from numbers based on family members’ birthdays to those that come to you in a dream. If you come across a number that stands out to you in some way, write it down, and once you have enough, use them for your next Health Millions entry.

Start a Syndicate

Syndicates are a great option, as they can improve your chances of winning without increasing the cost of entry. A syndicate is simply when two or more people pool their money to purchase multiple entries to a lottery and then agree to share any prize money won. That means you get a share of multiple entries but you don’t have to foot the cost for all of them.

If you don’t know anyone who runs a syndicate, you can start your own. You don’t have to register it, but it is advised that you draft a written syndicate agreement detailing important rules of participating, such as who is responsible for buying the entries, what happens if the group wins, and so on. Doing that will help to avoid any disputes further down the line. You can find further guidance in the Syndicates section of this website.

Take the Statistical Approach

If you’re more analytically minded, you may want to take a more statistical approach to picking your numbers. In that instance, you can find a range of useful statistics on the Health Millions website. The stats cover everything from the numbers that appear most frequently in Health Millions to the pairs and triplets that are most commonly seen together. You’ll also find a count of how many times each number and each Health Ball has appeared.

These numbers can help you look into the trends behind past results and find numbers that stand out in some way. It may be that a particular number hasn’t been selected for a while, so you may predict it will come up soon, or a certain pair has previously appeared much more often than others. Whichever way you interpret them, the statistics provide a useful way to narrow down your options.

Discover the Wheel

Lottery wheeling is a popular way of creating multiple sets of numbers from a larger set, and can help you create multiple entries or narrow down your options even further if you can’t quite decide which six numbers you want.

Creating a lottery wheel for Health Millions is easy. First, take any seven numbers - they could be ones you’ve already got in mind or some completely off the top of your head - and note them down on a piece of paper or on a spreadsheet on your computer. As an example, we’ll use 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7.

Then, immediately below that, copy out those numbers again, but leave a space where the first number should be. You should end up with two rows that look like this:

1 2 3 4 5 6 7
  2 3 4 5 6 7

Do the same again beneath that row, but this time leave a space where the second number should be. Then add another row and leave a space instead of the third number, and carry on doing the same until you have something that looks like this:

1 2 3 4 5 6 7
  2 3 4 5 6 7
1   3 4 5 6 7
1 2   4 5 6 7
1 2 3   5 6 7
1 2 3 4   6 7
1 2 3 4 5   7
1 2 3 4 5 6  

Remove the blanks from each row and you will have seven complete sets of six numbers, which you can then use for the next Health Millions. All you need to do is add the number that you want to use for the Health Ball. One of the biggest benefits of this method is its utility. It’s useful if you want to enter more than one line, or if you’ve narrowed your selection down to seven numbers but can’t decide which number to cut to make six. 

Just remember, you pay for each individual entry, so if you decide to enter multiple lines, you have to pay for each one. The upside is that entering multiple lines of numbers is the only surefire way of improving your chances of winning.

The Health Millions Super Jackpot event will take place on Thursday 29th October at 9pm. Entries are open, so you can use the methods described here to choose your numbers now.
