it may not be a big pattern but i notice that since the year began, the bonus ball of MegaMillions is 78% of the time is below 30....

and 37 out of 48 times the Bonus ball of Mega Millions was below 30...

it is still a pattern....

from the begining of 2008 'til now there have been 48 MegaMillions drawings....

    I check Powerball and is about the same scenario...9 bonus ball out of 50 of powerball were above 30 from the begining of this year...There have been 50 drawings from the begining of this year 2008 'til now...

    82% of the time the bonus ball is below 30 for Powerball from the beginning of this year 2008 'til now, june 14th...

      So since the powerball is 1/42, numbers under 30 account for 69% of the possibilities.  41 of 50 drawings under 30 represent 82% of the drawings.  not quite sure if we will be able to benefit from a '82% of the time the drawing is in the lower 69%' scenerio......

        I thought for Powerball the bonus ball was from 1-44 but i guess i was mistaken...I found another pattern that i am going to post but i kind of ran out of time, so i'll post it when i come back...

        This is helpful when you all are doing you all prediction....

            Powerball has only had 4 draws below 5 as well (since the beginning of the year) out of 49 draws, or 8.2% of the time.  However 1-4 is only 4 balls out of 42, which is 9.5% of the balls.  You could say that on average 9.5% of the draws will be 1-4, which is close to what the actual is.  I don't think that will really help us much.

            The same will show true for any selections within the same size range.  If you look at PB's 31-34, there have only been 5 drawn in the 49 drawings this year.  That's 10.2%, which is right around the 'expected' 9.5%.
