I couldn't find anywhere that went back all the way to the start for the MegaMillions so I couldn't get all their results in an excel DL. And have not put them into any crunching. Yet. I rarely play it anyway. But for PB. That's a little different story. You all got me to thinking about 28 numbers. 28. So i decided to check and see just what the top 10 numbers drawn where. In 1,598 Powerball drawings, these are the top ten numbers drawn. (15 numbers actually counting ties). Keeping 28 in mind. 28 as in 10, or 0 or 5. Thought it was funny that right at half of these 15 numbers where offsets of 5, and or 0. With the 20 being the top seller and it's sums equalling 10. Or 6. Which could be 10 if the 0 and 5 are connected in some way. Could just be wishful thinking though, that their might be something, or someway. Who knows, them numbers are a crazy thing. I'm waiting for that 1,600th draw to see what it brings.

And the top two PB's drawn is 2 and 20 in those 1,598 drawings. Both coming in with 53 times each.

      RJOh was merely making an observation, not playing. Besides, zero hits is equally difficult as 5 of 5.

                Maybe I should quit trying to teach here and just let you believers in this nonsense play in the sand and hope that you eventually see the light.  I hope this happens BEFORE you have good luck and win a large prize because, otherwise,  you will surely claim you won through skill,  and perpetuate this silliness through your children, family, and friends.

                I feel sorry for any innocent person that you might serve on a jury to judge some day,  especially if recognition of his or her innocence hinges on a clear understanding of randomness and probability.

                    MegaMillions started out as the BigGame on 09/06/96 and became MegaMillions on 05/17/02.  USAMega has its complete history along with all its drawings results and matrix changes over the years.

                        Thanks Ronnie,

                        As you said, it was only an observation of what happened in the past but if bobby623 can use it to narrow a list of possible winners then more power to him.  Hopefully, he will share his results.

                          08/19/05 - 02 13 18 36 46 +36

                          MATCH 0 = 13
                          MATCH 1 = 96
                          MATCH 2 = 205
                          MATCH 3 = 306
                          MATCH 4 = 143
                          MATCH 5 = 36

                          The average number of hits in the last 799 drawings is 71, everyone of those 28 numbers were drawn at least 71 times, and over half of them were drawn more than 77 times. The opposite group of 28 numbers matched five numbers 13 times and over half of those number were drawn less than 67 times. The conclusion is obvious; the higher frequency numbers will create more five number matches when placed into groups of 28 numbers.

                          We know for a fact there will be about the same amount of high and low frequency numbers in the next 799 drawings, but we don't know which numbers will be high or low frequent. To do that we can place the numbers into a order. I had some success by placing the 39 Rolling Cash 5 numbers into an order of when the numbers were last drawn and using the numbers in the columns that consistently matched 2 or 3 numbers. Showed a small profit using 14 numbers, but never had a five match which is the goal playing 28 numbers.

                          That group also matched four numbers 143 times so for evaluation, it possible less than 20 of those numbers were involved in the majority of the four number matches. That gives the option of using 8 of any of the remaining 36 numbers to have a five number match over 70 times. It's maybe easier to look for groups of 20 numbers consistently getting more four number matches and look for ways to add 8 more numbers to get the five number match.

                            Boney hits 5 of 5...... Very nice work boney......

                            1, 4, 8, 12, 14, 15, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 30, 31, 35, 38, 39, 40, 41, 43, 46, 53, 54, 56  Not sure if you wanted me to use a bonus ball.  RNG says 45.

                            While Boney sounded negative, he did offer some helpful observations whether it was his intent or not.

                              RJOh was merely making an observation, not playing. Besides, zero hits is equally difficult as 5 of 5.

                              Yes, I realize RJOH was presenting some interesting history.
                              I doubt any visitors here actually played the combinations, although you never know!

                              Seems everything said here is taken as a 'personal attack!'

                              I don't play the jackpot games that often, but when I do, I usually choose 8 to 10 numbers, depending on
                              which Decade structure I choose to use as a base foundation.

                              I have a paper and pen workout with tracking charts that are unique.
                              I evaluate lottery history in small pieces, as opposed to looking at a really big picture - like most players.

                              If I ever took the time to generate 28 numbers, I would be reluctant to post them - for fear some
                              unsuspecting visitor might use them and possibly lose money.

                              I swear, I don't know why I jumped in!

                              Have a good day!
