What is the likelihood that the number 35 will be the highest reported number drawn in MegaMillions?

I know that numbers are drawn in random order and that they are only reported in numerical order.  The number 35 has been drawn in the Mega Millions 18 times since Oct 22, 2013.  Overall, it is the hottest number.  It has come up once in the first position (or lowest reported number drawn), four times in the second position, seven in the middle position, 6 in the fourth position, but never in the last position (or highest reported number drawn).  It should be due to come up as the last position.  I feel that the number 35, overall, is hot and (for me) avoidable.  However, given that it is a cold number in the last position, should I concentrate on only selecting numbers 1-35, with 35 as the last position, until that 35 hits??

    I would play 35 just because it is a frequent number. I would not play it as the 5th number. There are other numbers that play more frequently in the 5th position. Plus you are eliminating 40 numbers, many of which have played in that position.

    I used to keep a chart of positional frequency way back, but lost the data when my computer got a bug. Frankly that data never helped me win so I didn't pursue it anymore.

      By doing so you reduce your combination pool from 258,890,850 to 4,859,480.

        If you like the number 35, you must ask yourself the question - Which combination of numbers come in the most often with the number 35?????

        2014-11-073135416566
        2014-10-21535374166
        2015-04-213133354169
        2014-02-251218253566
        2014-03-041029313545
        2014-04-083536416071
        2015-01-203135565963
        2014-08-22531344174
        2014-12-23410315666

        In the Mega Game - the number 35 comes in the most often with the numbers 31-4x; 41-4x & 66-3x.

        You should be playing the numbers 31 35 41 66 (in my opinion).

        For the 5th number, you should pick one of the 3 outside numbers 5 10 56 (here again, in my opinion).  I look at outside numbers that hit the most often with the main numbers I am playing & in conjunction with each other.

        Good Luck & Best Wishes...........................................................

        P.S. I would not play the number 35 in the 5th position............................... for what it is worth........................

          My question is why are you limiting your time frame to just 2013? If you look at the complete history you'll see 35 has shown up 29x overall in last place.

          1st place--2x

          2nd place--24x

          3rd place--59x

          4th place--71x

          Seems 4th place is where he likes to show up most.

          You said 35 is the hottest number overall. I'm not so sure about that. Now you got me curious :) I'll find out and report back.

            The last Matrix change to the Mega Game was on 10/22/13.  Therefore; anything older than that would comprise the patterns of combinations.  When you are looking at combinations & patterns, you can only look at the current Matrix.  Anything other than the current matrix will distort your figures.  Every time the Matrix changes, I throw out the old & start keeping track of the new.  It's like looking at a Game with 21 numbers.  When the Matrix changes to 32 numbers, you can not look back at the old set of 21 numbers.  The current combinations will not be the same as the old game.  In reality, it's like comparing apples to oranges.  It just doesn't work.......................................

              I see what you're saying but does the matrix of the game affect the results as much as the actual machine the numbers are drawn from? It doesn't seem to me that just because the matrix of the game changed the numbers that are biased would change as well if they're using the same machine.

                Trust me,  it does.  I have been looking at combinations &  patterns  in all kinds of Jackpot games over the last 20 years & I have learned thru experience.

                Under the old matrix, you only had 56 balls to contend with, now; you have 75 balls.   Big difference.....................

                  If you look at how things have been trending over the past month, I'd pick 35 as my first number.

                    I never look @ the frequency of any 'one' given number.  When I am looking for a set of numbers to play, I look at which combinations of numbers come in the most often with each other and make my picks from there.

                    Here is an example of the Powerball Game.  In this case, I would play the numbers 01 34 38 42 50.

                    *************         
                    2010-11-033438394550
                    2013-07-17122343842
                    2015-03-073436384250
                    2015-04-29126343851
                    *************         

                    You look for the combinations of numbers that hit the most often with each other.  I might like the number 34 & that's all well & good.  But, if you don't know which combinations of numbers come in with 34 what good is it...................................

                      Now that I'm wrapping my mind around this (still early,lol) I see what you say does make sense. Since you're adding 19 more balls, naturally the chance of the number bias changing is greater. Personally, I never play Mega. Why would anyone? I've posted this before but your odds are the populations of Russia and Mexico combined! Absolutely ridiculous.

                        I never look @ the frequency of any 'one' given number.  When I am looking for a set of numbers to play, I look at which combinations of numbers come in the most often with each other and make my picks from there.

                        Here is an example of the Powerball Game.  In this case, I would play the numbers 01 34 38 42 50.

                        You look for the combinations of numbers that hit the most often with each other.  I might like the number 34 & that's all well & good.  But, if you don't know which combinations of numbers come in with 34 what good is it...................................

                        I Agree!  Exactly. Just as you would find a pair for pick 3 or 4. Small Tips like these add up to Big Winners! In a game such as this, every trick in the book must be used.

                          You can never changes the Odds of a game as it is a mathematical formula base on the number of balls used in any given game (The Matrix).  But you can change your chances of winning.   Your Chances of Winning are not the same as your Odds of Winning.  These are two separate issues. By knowing which combinations of numbers come in the most often with each other, you just improved your chances of Winning.

                          Good Luck & Best Wishes To ALL.........................................................

                            It depends on what the 4th highest number is.  If the 4th highest number is 34 then the likelihood is 1 in 41

                            because that's how many numbers are greater than 34 to choose from.  If the 4th highest number is 4 then

                            it would 71.
