My last post was on the PowerBall past winning numbers and how their history can help you observe some of the characteristics the drawn numbers have in common. Helping you decide on the numbers you want to play and how you can combine them to have most of these traits.
Let’s do the same for the Mega Millions past winning numbers and see what their history can teach you on how to choose your lottery numbers.
We’ve been analyzing the Mega Millions game, since it first changed its name from The Big Game to Mega Millions in 2002. And we came close to the same conclusion as for the PowerBall game,only the percentage of the traits differs .
There aren’t so many differences between the traits for the past winning PowerBall numbers and the past winning Mega Millions numbers, which proves once more that a good balanced ticket it’s the best you can play with.
Did you know that 13% of the winning tickets had the odd/even ratio of 3 odd 3 even? The most balanced combination of them all. The following combination was 4 even/2 odd with 8% of all draws and the 2 even/4 odd with close to 7%. There were also the 6 odd/0 even and 0 odd/6 even combinations drawn during the past 11 years, but they barely account for 1% of all draws. Be careful when choosing your numbers, try to keep a more balanced odd/even ratio because it’s best to listen to history when you have the facts.
As I said for the Powerball past winning numbers also, the minimum and the maximum sum of numbers has never been drawn either in the Mega Millions game, although the total number of drawn until now has reached over 1000 draws. Most winning numbers had the sum range from 120 to 150.
As for the Megaball, the count for each numbers is closely the same, but we are working on a tool that will help you predict the next time when a number for megaball and powerball will be drawn.
You can take all these information and put it in your playing routine, when you choose the numbers you are going to play for the next draw. It will help you combine the numbers in a way that will maximize your winnings and who knows? maybe even bring you the Mega Millions jackpot!
