Same chance of winning, but there’s a higher chance another player will also have chosen “1 2 3 4 5 6 7”, meaning they’d have to split their winnings if they win.

Interestingly enough, the same phenomenon makes it easy to tell a truly random list of numbers from a list that a human simply tried to make look random. The human will usually avoid strings of the same number, or sequences like 1 2 3 4 5, because they don’t “feel” random to us. But there is a certain statistical probability of those things actually happening, which humans don’t intuitively grasp.

In nz we had a lottery recently where the winning numbers were something like 2 4 6 8 10 12 (or possibly odd numbers) and 1 million dollars was split between 38 people.

1) What lottery has you pick 7 numbers? 2) What lottery has numbers that go as high as 93? You’d have better luck winning the Powerball jackpot 5 times in a row than winning your weird lottery.
