Does anyone pick their numbers relying on the most frequently drawn numbers?  Even using that method, there are quite a few variations.

      Thanks, psykomo!  By cold numbers do you mean those that arent drawn frequently?  What's the rational behind that? And why are you puking?

            SmileYes do! I read the stat chart on this page and go for the majority numbers that are in the red from the last 50 drawings. Then I go for the top MB and PB numbers also. Check out my post on the Maddog Challenges for MM and PB.Thumbs Up

              It's no worse than any other way of picking numbers, except that there are a lot of other people doing the same thing, so if you do get the jackpot you'll have to split it many ways.

                  But, do you think it really gives people a statistically better chance of wining?  Probably not, since as you pointed out many people do it and we don't hear of many multiple jackpot winners. The most I have heard of were three on some of the largest jackpots. 

                  Anyway, good luck, everyone! Lovies

                    I try to use the most frequently drawn numbers.  But when using different intervals of time, the  best of the most frequently drawn numbers tend to get a little blurred.  And whenever there is a one number that is SO frequent, i tend to think its time for a cooling, and am hesitant to play it anyway. 

                    However I do try to stay away from the coldest numbers.  They tend to take a LONG time to come around, and when they do, they often are a disappointment anyway as they only have a few quick hits before disappearing into obscurity once again.

                      I make my picks based on the most frequency of COMBINATIONS of NUMBERS.  Take the PB game for example.

                      In this case, I would have the tendency to play the numbers 16, 22, 23, 29, 42.

                      You can also look at the frequency of the Power Ball itself.  What would you pick for your Power Ball Number???

                      Would you pick 29 or 31?  If you look at my Frequency chart, you will see that 29 has hit 19 times in the time frame given vs. 31 which has only hit 4 times in the same time frame. 

                      In the time frame given: 01/07/09 thru 05/27/15, there have been 667 drawings in the PB Game; of which, 567 are in one of my 147 Groups or 85.01% of the Total drawings.  Look at it this way.  If you cannot match 3 of 5 numbers in one of my 147 Groups, you only have about 15% chance of winning the PB Game based on the actual Statistical data provided.  Odds of Winning are not the same thing as Chances of Winning.  Think Smart - Play Smart.

                        The only time I recalled the lottery jackpot ever being split many ways was when all the winners got their numbers from some future cookies.  Chances are if someone else is picking their numbers the same way your are they are getting different results.  Multi jackpot winners occur rarely while multi jackpot losers happens all the time.

                          In almost all draws the winning numbers come from among hot, average and cold, like 2-2-2 or 2-3-1 that kind of ratio.  All from one is like all odd or all even or all low or all high.

                            Perhaps a spreadsheet which is keeping track of all three groups and is able to suggest lines with numbers from all three groups will be successful?

                              In our lottery pool at my work, we do that sometimes.   With my personal numbers, I have been playing them for 10 years, and wish that I hadn't.  I wish I would have selected a different set of numbers each time, or selected frequently drawn numbers each time.   I would never recommend playing the same numbers over and over though.  If I could go back in time and not play same numbers I would because now I feel, "obligated" to play them for fear they will come up when or if I have to stop playing.   At least with different numbers each time, I could stop playing if I needed to.
