Mega Millions Numbers That Can Make you a Winner

Mega Millions Lotto

Mega Millions is a US multi-jurisdictional $1 lottery game and is played by Canadians as well. This lottery Mega Millions’ has the jackpots started at $15 million, paid in 29 yearly installments (unless the cash option is chosen), and increasing when there is no jackpot winner.

Mega Millions currently uses a 5/56 (white balls) + 1/46 (the Mega Ball) double matrix to select its winning numbers. Each game costs $1; in 43 of the 44 Mega Millions jurisdictions there is an option, called Megaplier (such games are $2 each) where non-jackpot prizes are multiplied by 2, 3, or 4. Mega Millions is drawn at 10:59 p.m. Eastern time Tuesdays and Fridays, including holidays.
The largest jackpot in Mega Millions, as well as in American lottery history, was $656 million annualized (with a cash option of $474 million) for the March 30, 2012 drawing in which there were three jackpot-winning tickets; one each in Illinois, Kansas, and Maryland.

When you buy a Mega Millions lottery ticket all you need is to pick six numbers from two separate pools of numbers – five different numbers from 1 to 75 and one number from 1 to 15 – or select Easy Pick. You win the jackpot by matching all six winning numbers in a drawing.

When buying a Mega Million Lotto ticket you obviously look at the numbers to pick for the great win but there are certain things to consider when picking the numbers so that they can generate some win for you.

Statistics have shown that Mega Millions numbers have a potential pattern, and in a certain amount of time, the pattern is relatively stable. The number pattern has revealed itself in the numbers drawn in the period of past months. Knowing this formula of numbers may dramatically increase your winning odds.

Look at the below Pattern:

The numbers that did not present themselves in the last 20 or 30 draws will most likely not show in next draw.  As an example, from some serial of draws in the following table, you may see that hidden pattern.

In understanding this, you might want to consider if you want to put these numbers in your next ticket or not.

In the past 12 months, the numbers drawn that have higher counts have higher probabilities than these that have lower counts. The counts are ranked from 1 to 56. The count 1 means the number has been drawn the most times in the past 12 months.

Draw Date Winning Numbers Conunt Order at Draw Remark
01/15/2016 29-41-53-54-70 5, 27, 39, 43, 46 The lowest count is at 46.
01/12/2016 15-27-29-31-48 8, 9, 33, 57, 73 The lowest count is at 73
01/08/2016 11-39-51-57-75 5, 22, 30, 51, 62 The lowest count is at 62 (out of 75).
01/05/2016 01-04-36-48-57 43, 65, 66, 71, 72 The lowest count is at 72
01/01/2016 07-18-37-38-39 5, 12, 38, 40, 43 The lowest count is at 43
12/29/2015 20-25-55-62-74 4, 14, 24, 50, 73 Counts down to 73
12/25/2015 15-25-29-44-51 5, 13, 19, 34, 44 All 5 numbers have high counts – down to 44
12/22/2015 11-21-40-50-70 9, 36, 48, 53, 66 Counts down to 66
12/18/2015 06-23-24-28-62 17, 20, 40, 46, 70 Counts down to 70
12/15/2015 18-25-47-51-61 9, 15, 35, 42, 57 Counts down to 57 out of 75

 

In the above 10 draws, which include 50 numbers, there are only 7 numbers that have counts lower than 60. If you use only the numbers that are in the top 60 counts in the past 10 draws, you have had greatly increased your odds of covering 5 numbers. You may also use high-count Mega Ball numbers for your Mega Ball.

In the Mega Millions draw, any number could come out, but you might really want to use the numbers that have much higher probability over the others. But also it is always your choice and your decision to make on how to use the statistics and select your numbers.

You can consider in looking at the  behaviour of numbers and their count patterns before you make a choice to pick your lucky numbers. Lottery with such a huge Jackpot should not be taken for granted and played without any consideration to the number probability. So better do some calculations before choosing the right numbers and be a winner.
