all odd???????? Most of or should I say all the
software for the lottery said not to play all
even  or all odd numbers??????Play 2 even 3 odd
or 3 odd 2 even etc....Anyway all odd in the MEGA

for you-- butt at the deciding move you decide what
to play...Your numbers or there quick picks....
Here in Michigan in the Fanasty 5 game that is played
everyday ----I can say that we have had around
13 odd and 8 even number sets  for the year so far...
So maybe now the software programs that they sell

    The odds of all 6 Mega Millions numbers being odd are 77.7 to 1. If someone thinks that's good odds, they better get started early filling out their play slips because there are 2,260, 440 all odd combinations.

    4.71% of Michigan's Fantasy 5 game's combinations are all even or all odd. If out of the last 365 drawings 21 of them were all even or all odd, it was slightly higher at 5.75%. It's used as a filter because as the statistics show, it rarely happens. Most standard filters are set at 2 or 3 even numbers which is even a higher reduction.

    Most programs use not more than 3 consecutive numbers, not more than 3 numbers from the same decade, and not more than 3 numbers ending in the same digit as a standard filters too.

          You've missed some of the results. MM started in September '96 and the first all odd result was 1,23,25,39,43 + 19 on May 30, 1997. The next drawing was all even (2,8 20,22,32 +8).  All told I count 16 that you missed. I dodn't pay attention to which were odd or even, but the total of all odd and all even results is 34.  Since the game started there have been about 1310 drawings, and the proportion of all odd or even results has been roughly the same, at about 1 in 38. Dividing 1310 drawings by 38, we could expect 34.5 results to be all odd or all even.

          This is one of the recurring themes, brought up almost every time we see an all odd or all even result.  1 in 77.7 odds are incredibly good compared to the odds you get by playing 1 or 100 combinations out of the 175.7 million that could be drawn. Playing a 2+3 pr 3+2 combination increases your chances of matching the pattern of the winning combination, but that doesn't even win bragging rights. To actualy win you need to match the specific numbers, not just one of the characteristics of those numbers.


          FWIW, the NY lotto results for the following night were 18,33,35,37,39,and 57. Note that the 33,35 and 39 matched the results for MM.

            Some people throw away All Odd/Even combos. I haven't found an advantage to doing that, so I stopped using it as a filter.

                You actually guessed right. Did you play all even numbers on yesterday's draw??

                  BigGame started on 09/06/96 and became MegaMillions on 05/17/02 when Ohio joined.  I didn't include BigGame history.

                      There are 379,050 combinations with 2 or 3 even numbers in 5/39 pick-5 games and one would have to play 3791 combos just to have 1%. Filters like these are more effective for playing 6 to 16 full number wheels using either more even or more odd numbers. By using 2 or 3 even numbers as a filter on a full 13 number wheel with 6 even and 7 odd numbers, the reduction is 26.57% and is 49.65% using 4 odd and 9 even numbers.

                      Even if we're correct and the pattern is 2 or 3 even numbers, we still would need 5 of the 13 numbers to win the jackpot and lose money if 3 or less of our numbers are drawn. Betting $945 or $648 on a guess that at least 4 numbers in a random drawing will be among the 33% of all the numbers isn't what I call a very good bet.

                        All Even and All Odd occurs more often than one would think:

                        12/23/2009 NJ C5: 04 10 12 16 30 (EEEEE)

                        12/24/2009 NJ C5: 09 15 17 29 37 (OOOOO)

                          Well what are the---- odds ----of the MEGA comming up
                          all odd???????? Most of or should I say all the
                          software for the lottery said not to play all
                          even  or all odd numbers??????Play 2 even 3 odd
                          or 3 odd 2 even etc....Anyway all odd in the MEGA
                          last Tuesday.....So the software is just a tool
                          for you-- butt at the deciding move you decide what
                          to play...Your numbers or there quick picks....
                          Here in Michigan in the Fanasty 5 game that is played
                          everyday ----I can say that we have had around
                          13 odd and 8 even number sets  for the year so far...
                          So maybe now the software programs that they sell
                          will tell you to play all even---all odd  numbers...
                          My point is You decide what to play...
                          This is just to let everyone know anything can happen

                          Bob in Michigan

                          Wouldn't the odds of that be (28/56)*(27/55)*(26/54)*(25/53)*(24/52)*(23/46)?

                          That would give you 1 in 77.7333 odds

                          Some RNG algorithms tend to get locked into preferring all odds or all evens every now and then and have to be rigourously tested to make sure that won't happen...often...
