Mega Millions® Strategy

Special Strategy for “Special Players” anytime after October 18, 2013:

You can favorably tilt YOUR ODDS in a big way so that you may share a significant fraction of a Mega Millions® Jackpot. Sharing a Jackpot is always better than nothing, therefore stop buying Quick Picks! A “Special Player(s)” may be an individual with deep pockets or another person with one to fourteen friends (Club?). When the next Jackpot rises above your agreed threshold, choose five numbers and buy fifteen tickets to cover each of the fifteen Mega Ball Numbers. The odds of winning the Jackpot are then reduced from 1:258,890,850 to 1:18,495,203. If one of the five numbers drawn is any number from 1 to 15, the odds on that ticket, which becomes a pick 4, is further reduced to only 1:52,835.

Mega Millions® – 75 Lottery Balls & 15 Mega Balls

Try to never buy a “Quick Pick!”   The Lottery Player has no control of the Lottery Numbers that are generated by a computer in all Quick Picks.   The longest odds always remain the same for every Lottery Player who permits a random generation the Lottery Numbers to be played.  The odds to win the Jackpot when one drum contains 75 Lottery Numbers and a separate drum contains 15 Mega Numbers are 1:258,890,850.   The objective should be to tilt the odds in favor of The Lottery Player by replacing all future “Quick Picks” with carefully chosen numbers after reviewing the latest Lottery Number Trends. (DISCLAIMOR regarding COMPARISSONS with 10 Year Averages and Last Year; On October 19, 2013, Mega Millions® substantially revised their template. All Mega Millions® prior year and year-to-date numbers and percent are shown only for historical evaluation. Most frequencies will be reduced in the future drawings).

  1. - A comparison of the 10 Year Averages and the Last Year Totals with the YTD Totals in columns  (a) ODD & EVEN NUMBERS will be particularly helpful when choosing Lottery Numbers if buying only one ticket per drawing.
  2. - The 10 Year Averages in columns (b) COMBINATIONS OF NUMBERS shows that buying one ticket with 3 odd / 2 even numbers or 2 odd / 3 even numbers has resulted in at least 30% of the drawings.  Buying two tickets with 3 odd numbers / 2 even numbers and 2 odd numbers / 3 even numbers has resulted in one of the two combinations being drawn about 65% of the time.
  3. - The 10 Year Averages in columns (c) CONSECUTIVE NUMBERS shows that consecutive numbers happen in about 36% of the drawings.
  4. - The 10 Year Averages in columns (d) REPEAT NUMBERS shows that at least one of the 5 Lottery Numbers from the previous drawing was drawn again about 36% of the time in the next drawing.  When a correct repeating number is chosen, the remaining odds to win the Jackpot are reduced to 1:739,688
  5. - A comparison of the 10 Year Averages and the Last Year Totals with the YTD Totals in columns  (e) GROUPS BY THE TENS will be helpful in identifying lagging Groups that may most likely catch up and in identifying leading groups that may drop back.
  6. - A comparison of the 10 Year Averages and the Last Year Totals with the YTD Totals in columns   (f) NUMBERS ENDING In THIS DIGIT may be helpful in identifying Numbers to be either selected or avoided.
  7. -The most recent 18 or more drawings compared to the 10 Year Averages and the Last Year Totals with the YTD Totals in columns (g) ODD NUMBERS FROM EACH DRAWING provides all Lottery Players with a different perspective that is always crucial.
  8. -The most recent 18 or more drawings compared to the 10 Year Averages and the Last Year Totals with the YTD Totals in columns (h) EVEN NUMBERS FROM EACH DRAWING provides all Lottery Players with a different perspective that is always crucial.
  9. - A comparison of the 10 Year Averages and the Last Year Totals with the YTD Totals in columns   (i) THE MEGA BALL – Odd/Even #’s will often be helpful in choosing The Mega Ball Number.
  10. - A comparison of the 10 Year Averages and the Last Year Totals with the YTD Totals in columns   (j) GROUPS BY THE TENS was discontinued on October 19, 2013 and replaced by (j) REPEATED MEGA BALL NUMBERS – Since there are only 15 Mega Balls, Repeated Mega Ball Numbers (same as previous drawing) may occur about 8% of the time.
  11. - In columns (k), THE MEGA BALL FROM EACH DRAWING that is always drawn from a separate drum is the most important ball in every drawing because the correct selection of this number will always reward The Lottery Player with at least the Minimum Prize.
  12. – When a Mega Ball Number in column (l) MATCHING NUMBERS contains the “M” label, it signifies that the Mega Ball Number corresponds to one of the other five Lottery Ball Numbers in the same drawing, which happens about 7% of the time.  When anyone is perceptive enough to correctly play a Matching Mega Ball Number, the remaining odds to win the Jackpot will substantially drop to only 1:52,835.
  13. - Column (m) MATCHING MEGA BALL NUMBERS reveals an enlightening history that shows 10 Year Totals for each Mega Ball Number as well as Last Year Totals and Year to Date Totals plus 10 Year Totals BY THE TENS.  This will be extremely valuable when attempting to choose a Matching Mega Ball Number(s).

Expansion & Explanation of Column Titles:

Please note – All colored boxes represent accumulations (TOTALS)

  1. ODD & EVEN NUMBERS; ODD & EVEN NUMBERS; displays total Odd Numbers and Even Numbers within each Drawing. Same (Sme)and/or Alternate (Alt) applies whenever there is a relationship between the total odd and even numbers in the most recent Drawing compared to the total odd and even numbers from the previous Drawing.
  2. COMBINATIONS; displays Odd and Even Numbers. Each Drawing of five numbers will always result in only one of these six crucial combinations of Odd and Even Numbers.
  3. CONSECUTIVE NUMBERS:
    • 2 is one occurrence of two consecutive numbers involving two Drawn Numbers.
    • 2/2’ss is two occurrences of two consecutive numbers involving four Drawn Numbers.
    • 2 & 3 is one occurrence of two consecutive numbers and three other consecutive numbers involving five Drawn Numbers.
    • 3 is one occurrence of three consecutive numbers involving three Drawn Numbers.
    • 4 is one occurrence of four consecutive numbers involving four Drawn Numbers.
  4. REPEAT NUMBERS displays Odd and Even Numbers plus the Number (#) of Drawings whenever there is a matching relationship of specific Number(s) in the most recent Drawing compared to specific Number(s) from the previous Drawing.
  5. GROUPS BY THE TENS; total accumulations of groups of Numbers within Single Digits, Teens, Twenties, Thirties, Forties and Fifties. Zero (0) is not a Lottery Number. This fact needs to be considered when comparing the Totals of Single Digits (1 to 9) and totals of Fifties (70-75) with the Totals of all other Groups. Most importantly, each numerical string is seldom duplicated from any of the previous 18 Drawings.
  6. NUMBERS ENDING IN THIS DIGIT; note that 75 is the highest number in this Lottery, therefore the distribution of numbers ending in Digits 0, 6, 7, 8, and 9 have the same reduced comparative occurrence. This fact needs to be considered when comparing with the other numbers ending in Digits 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5. Most importantly, each numerical string is seldom duplicated from any of the previous 18 Drawings.
  7. ODD NUMBERS IN EACH DRAWING; all Odd Numbers from 1 to 75.
  8. EVEN NUMBERS IN EACH DRAWING; all Even Numbers from 2 to 74.
  9. THE MEGA BALL; this single ball is drawn from a separate number drum from the other five numbers.  The Same (Sme) and/or Alternate (Alt) applies whenever there is a relationship between the total numbers in the most recent Drawing compared to the total numbers in the previous Drawing.
  10. - A comparison of the 10 Year Averages and the Last Year Totals with the YTD Totals in columns (j) GROUPS BY THE TENS was discontinued on October 19, 2013 and replaced by (j) REPEATED MEGA BALL NUMBERS – Since there are only 15 Mega Balls, Repeated Mega Ball Numbers (same as previous drawing) may occur about 8% of the time.
  11. MATCHING NUMBERS; the Mega Ball can be the same as one of the first five numbers, because it is drawn from a separate number pool from the other five numbers.
  12. THE MEGA BALL FROM EACH DRAWING; this single ball is drawn from a separate number pool from the other five numbers.
  13. MATCHING MEGA BALL NUMBERS; displays a summary of the occurrences where the Mega Ball corresponded with one of the other five balls in the same Drawing.
