Lucky #7: 7 Jackpot Scholarships to Apply for in July
For many, the number “7” is considered lucky or a favorite. Hence, the familiar phrase, “lucky number seven.” In fact, the number seven is people’s most common favorite number, one of “the world’s most popular numbers,” according to Scientific American’s findings within a study. Game players worldwide are known to exploit the fact that seven is statistically one of most commonly chosen numbers between one and 10 (FYI: three is the other commonly chosen number, making 37, statistically speaking, the most commonly chosen number between 1 and 100 – how serendipitous!).
