Mega Millions Number Patterns

This report shows patterns based on how many times each individual lottery ball has been chosen in the past 28* Mega Millions drawings. It is used to determine the number of drawings that take place between hits for each lottery ball. We calculate the number of drawings between each lottery numbers appearance in a winning ticket and look for any trends that develop over time. Using this information you can determine the average number of lottery games played between hits for a given lottery ball and if that number is due to hit.

When you combine the information on how much time passes between hits for a lottery number and then use the last hit data for the number you can tell if the number is past due or if it is too soon to use again.

In the report the "Due to hit" indicator is based on the average number of games between the lottery ball being selected and the last time it played. If the number of games has past the average between games, then we show this as due to hit.

Let's look at an example and explain how to read the table. Here we have five winning tickets which produces the following results.

  • Lottery ball #1 has not hit
  • The #4 lottery ball has hit once
  • Lottery balls 45, 55 and 56 have each played twice.

Ticket # Ball #1 Ball #2 Ball #3 Ball #4 Ball #5 Mega Ball
1 21 33 44 45 55 7
2 4 23 39 49 50 9
3 5 14 32 53 56 11
4 10 18 41 55 56 15
5 6 22 34 43 45 13

This will produce an output similar to this table.

4 1 0 ? ?
5 1 0 ? ?
Other results removed for clarity.
45 2 3 1 No
55 2 2 1 No
56 2 2 3 Yes

In our example if you look at the "Last Hit" and "Due to Hit" columns you will see that some of them have a "?". This indicates that we do not really have enough data to calculate a result. This is what happened for our ball number one in this example. This ball never showed up in our example data so a calculation is not done. You will also see that our ball number four has the same indicator because it only showed up a single time.

Now if you look at the difference between ball number 55 and 56 you will see that both had two hits but the "due to hit column" for ball number 56 shows "Yes" while 56 does not. Both have a average number between hits of two, but only the number 56 ball is past this number from the last time it was selected. In this case three.
