Do Not Use The Following Pattern Selection Number Combinations
1. Do Not Choose All Odd or Even Numbers in a Combination
We have analyzed a lot of lottery drawings data for the pick 5 pick 6 lottery, it is concluded that the probability of occurrence of all odd numbers or even numbers in a combination is very low.
As an example, we analyzed the Powerball lottery past 100 results, all 5 odd numbers occurred only 3 times, 3%. all 5 even numbers occurred only 1 time, 1%. The most frequent combinations are 1-4 odd or even numbers. Here are two screenshots:
2. Do Not Choose Regular Combinations
Don’t use regular combinations, For example, a few examples of combinations: 01 11 21 31 41, 13 16 19 21 24, 01 03 05 07, 10 20 30 40 50, 07 14, 21, 28, 35.
3. Do Not Choose the Extreme Combinations
We analyzed the top 10 most popular lotteries worldwide, with tens of thousands of drawings results, like 01 02 03 04 05, and 66 67 68 69 70, a combination that basically does not occur.
4. Do Not Choose the Combinations has been Drawn Before
Let’s look at the odds of winning the Powerball top jackpot: 1 in 292,201,338. The odds are even lower for Mega Millions, with the odds of winning the jackpot: 1 in 302,575,350
And another important thing, The Powerball and Mega Millions only draw twice a week. Which makes up only 104 draws a year instead. So with Powerball and Mega Millions, If every lottery draw had a different result, it would take millions of years to use up all the results.
So for lotteries like Mega Millions and Powerball, all numbers that have been drawn should be excluded.
5. Do Not Choose All Numbers From One Group
What is a group, such as Mega Millions 5/70, we split the numbers into 7 groups, 01-10, 11-20, 21-30, 31-40, 41-50, 51-60, and 61-70. We analyzed hundreds of Mega Millions draws, As the following two charts.
In the number group 01-10, all 5 winning numbers from this group times is 0, the value of 4 occurred 2 times, 3 occurred 4 times, 2 occurred 41 times, 1 6 occurred 134 times, and 0 6 occurred 142 times.
In the number group 61-70, all 5 winning numbers from this group times is 0, 4 occurred also 0 times, 3 occurred 7 times, 2 occurred 44 times, 1 occurred 15 times, and 0 occurred 157 times.
So it’s easy to conclude that avoid selecting all the numbers from one group.
Use the Following Pattern Selection Number Combinations
1. Choose Numbers From Different Groups
We have analyzed many lottery draw results, most of them spread across different groups. However, sometimes, one or more of the number groups is missing. The more groups that are split, the more groups that are missed.
Please see the table below, Lotto America 5/52, previous 30 drawings, we split into 5 groups, 01-10, 11-20, 21-30, 31-40, and 41-52. Basically, there are only 0-2 winning numbers in each group. Counting all the groups, only 7 groups of winning numbers appeared 3 times, there are 56 groups of winning numbers appearing 0 times, there are 65 groups of winning numbers appearing 1 times and 32 groups of winning numbers appearing 2 times. Therefore, So it is better to choose 0, 1, or 2 numbers for each number group as the winning number.
2. Choose Low Number and High Number Ratio
We have analyzed many lottery draw results,most winning numbers are made up of low field and high field. In rare cases, the winning numbers are all low field numbers or all high field numbers.
Please see the table below, Mega Millions 5/70, previous 30 drawings, we split the 70 numbers into two groups. The low half is 01 to 35, and the high half is 36 to 70. Basically, there are only 1-4 winning numbers in a low group or high group. Counting all the groups, no combination of 5 numbers in the low group, there are only 2 combinations where all 5 numbers are in the high group. The winning numbers most occurrence ratio of low to high are 3:2, 2:3, 1: 4, 4: 1.
3. Choose Odd Number and Even Number Ratio
We have analyzed many lottery draw results, most winning numbers are made up of odd numbers and even numbers. In rare cases, the winning numbers are all odd numbers or all even numbers.
Please see the table below, Mega Millions 5/70, previous 30 drawings, we split the 70 numbers into two groups. odd numbers in a group, and even numbers in another group. Basically, there are only 1-4 winning numbers in an odd group or even group. Counting all the all odd/even groups, there are no combinations where all 5 numbers are even and only 1 combination where all 5 numbers are odd. The winning numbers most occurrence ratio of odd to even are 3:2, 2:3, 1: 4, 4: 1.
4. Choose Adjacent Numbers of Previous Winning Numbers
What is the adjacent number? If number 21 has been hit in the last drawn, its adjacent numbers(19, 20, 22, 23) are likely to be drawn.
We found a pattern by looking at the drawings trend chart, a number that appeared in the previous drawn has a high probability of appearing in its adjacent numbers.
For example, as shown below the trend of drawings in Lotto America from 9/26/2020 to 12/2/2020. I only marked some of the neighboring numbers, not marked all.
11/21/2020 drawn numbers: 02, 05, 36, 45, 52, 11/25/2020 drawn numbers: 01, 07, 12, 38, 40. We found 3 pairs of neighboring numbers, they are: 02 and 01, 05 and 07, 36 and 38.
5. Use Numbers Sum Value to Exclude Some Combinations
We analyzed several lotto lotteries and came to the conclusion that the sums of the winning numbers are basically in a range. For example, we analyzed Powerball and Mega Millions previous 100 drawings, and the sum range was basically 110-260. So before betting on numbers, exclude combinations where the sum is too low or too high.
6. Use Numbers Average Value to Exclude Some Combinations
We analyzed several lotto lotteries and came to the conclusion that the average value of the winning numbers is basically in a range. For example, we analyzed Powerball and Mega Millions previous 100 drawings, and the average value range was basically 20-50. So before betting on numbers, exclude combinations where the average is too low or too high.
7. Use AC Value to Exclude Some Combinations
According to our statistics, in the Pick 5 games, such as Mega Millions, Powerball, Lotto America, Cash4Life…, 85% – 95% of winning numbers are between AC value from 4 to 6.
Please see the chart below, we counted the 20 drawings winning numbers of Mega Millions from 9/25/2020 to 12/1/2020, the AC value of 2 occurred only once, 5%, and the AC value of 4-6 occurred 19 times, 95%. So before betting on numbers, exclude combinations where the AC is too low. So before betting on numbers, calculate the AC value of all combinations and filter out those with low AC values.
8. Numbers That Have Appeared in Previous 5 Have Very High Chance of Appearing in the Next Draw
We analyzed the top 30 Pick 5, Pick 6 lotteries in the world. some numbers of the last 5 winning numbers like to show up again and again. for example, as shown below, in the Mega Millions lottery from 10/27/2020 to 11/10/2020, we find 06, 07, 14, and 59 shown up repeatedly.
9. Mix Hot Numbers Cold Numbers and Overdue Numbers
Hot numbers are the ones that most frequently appear in the analyzed draws. Cold numbers are numbers that appear less frequently within a certain statistical range. Overdue numbers are those that haven’t been drawn in a while.
You can also mix and match overdue with cold and hot numbers. It is all about striking the right balance.
