It has to be a good day when your lottery ticket hits the jackpot doesn’t it?
Well, it could be a better day for the 98 people who will discover today that they’ve just won one of the worst ever jackpots on the Florida Lottery Fantasy 5 game.
Normally this game would pay out a jackpot of around $200,000. Not a huge sum, but it is only a Pick 5 game so is far easier to win.
So how did 98 people end up winning when normally it’s only 1 or 2 winners?
The winning numbers were 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9.
These are just as likely to be drawn as any other numbers of course, but it’s a terrible combination to pick. Unless you really like sharing your prize money with lots of other people who pick popular lottery combinations.
