Because the balls are NUMBERED, it is not a random event.

If half the balls were RED, and half the balls were BLUE, what would be the odds of getting all red or all blue?

Are odds the same for odd/even combinations, because half the balls are odd, and half the balls are even?

Does this help ?. it depends on the number of balls in play. if you have two balls, one blue and one red, you will have an equal chance of wininng. You mentioned odd-even combinations. if you have three balls, example: 01, 02, 03, as you see there are two odd balls here. Your chances of hittin one of your odd balls are higher. if you have four balls with color, example: 01blue, 02red, 03blue, 04red, you see there are two odd blue balls and two even red balls. Your chances of hitting one of your balls either red-blue/odd-even are equal.

The point is 2-4-6-8-10 has worse odds of being drawn because they are all even numbers.

I did check the last 25 draws, and 1 draw was all even numbers on MM 3-13-12.

Does this help ?  Ok, i see your point... I was explaining something relating to picking only one ball # and of its color. But you have brought up something that is interesting to me. The numbers drawn were 2-4-6-8-10, that Ten is interesting because if you turn it into a 0ne. 0ne is an odd number.

Yep, just as kls6417 said, it solely depends on how many balls are in play. The more balls, the more combinations there are and vice-versa...and the jackpots are more substantial with more balls. PB and MM's is a prime example and are set that high due to the difficulty level of matching ALL THE NUMBERS.

The less harder the game, the lower the jackpot/payout(s). This is also why when they, so say, revamped Powerball, they tried to offset the removal of (4) powerballs with a \$2 hike in the price. It isn't justified, to me at least, in any shape, form, or fashion. The claim of better odds, via less powerballs, deemed it necessary for them raise the price while "simultaneously" raising the starting jackpot tiers.

As you can see, though, the first (5) positions still possess the same exact odds in terms of difficulty level and I knew it when I saw it. It's too much like right and fair for them to extend faithful players a real chance at winning some good money.

In other words, they're just f*ckin' greedy and haven't done a thing for you, me, or anyone else here...but take more money. Just makin' it plain for ya.

All combinations have the same odds. The balls don't know they're numbered. The mixing machine doesn't know the balls are numbered. The air blowing through the mixing machine doesn't know the balls are numbered. Don't get confused just because you know the balls are numbered.

from 1-36 have 36 ball(01-11--21-31-41-51-02-12-22-32-42-52-03-13-23-33-43-53-04-14-24-34-44-54-05-15-25-35-45-55-06-16-26-36-46-56)

0 only 4 ball (10-20-30-40)

7-49 just 15 ball(07-17-27-37-47-08-18-28-38-48-09-19-29-39-49)

so,there is change the number from 1-36 will draw more often

the 0 is hard to come by,because they only have 4

Goodluck to all

So you are saying that a machine filled with 30 red balls, and 30 blue balls will draw all red or all blue just as often as a mixed combination??

That would be in the same category of asking, if all the balls were just as likely to come out in one consecutive order, (1-2-3-......57-58-59), as they

would in a random order. The odds are possible, agreed...but not probable.

Of all the ways those numbers could come out, one consecutive order, (1-2-3-......57-58-59) is only one of them. So the odds of that ever happening is 1:all the possible ways they could come out.

Again, I agree with odds.

And no one has answered the question....... What are the odds of getting all blue or all red?

Remember: half the balls are red and half the balls are blue.

the color is even

but the number on the ball from the last digit 1-6 are more adds

so more adds number are more change to be draw

that make sense
