The importance of knowing the past winning lottery numbers for your lottery game

Past winning lottery numbers

Past winning lottery numbers

There are a lot of people asking about the past Powerball numbers and past Mega Millions numbers. The question is not related to the lottery winning numbers per se, it’s about how can they be analyzed to find the winning numbers for the next draws. The controversy is whether you can take some knowledge from the drawn numbers and build your own lottery strategy to play with or they are simply random numbers that have been drawn and that’s it.

One of the most uses for past winning numbers is to play them again exactly as they were drawn or with small variations. You wouldn’t believe  how many people play exactly the same winning numbers from a week or even a year ago on the same date expecting them to win again. Only one time this happened, it was the 18th of June 1977 at the German Lotto where 205 players choose the winning combination from the Netherlands Lotto 6/49 and they’ve won! Each of them went home with close to $13,000 at that time.  But it was only one time and you can’t assume it will happen again based on only one time.

The numbers don’t come up again in such a short while. Imagine that they really are 175,223,510 possible number combinations in the Powerball game.  The odds that the same number combination will be drawn again in a week/month even year’s time it’s close to zero.

What you can do with the past winning lottery numbers is to study them. Take the past Powerball numbers and the past mega millions numbers and don’t play them in the near future.

Instead, take the Powerball results and the Mega Millions results and:

  1. See how many odd numbers and how many even numbers are in a winning combination. Find as many winning combinations as you possible can and search for the odd/even numbers ratio. You will see that there is a peak in the number’s curve and there it is the most popular winning combination of odd and even numbers.
  2. Start making an activity chart of the past winning numbers. Take for example the winning combinations for you game from the last 2 months. Take each number and see how many times it has been drawn in these 2 months.  If you notice that some numbers come up more often than others in a short period of time, play them and try to avoid using the numbers that don’t come up to often because well …chances to come up soon are not that great for most of them.
