Here's some stats for 2016 draws of MM:
Draw numbers: 1943 thru 2022 (total of 79 draws):
Number of times that:
White ball matched month: 2
White ball matched day: 6
White ball 20 (first 2 digits of year): 5
White ball 16 (last 2 digits of year): 3
Mega ball matched month: 3
Mega ball matched day: 0 (obviously less likely because it's only possible half of the month)
White ball matched first 2 digits of draw number (most being 19): 5 (1 was a 20 which also matched first 2 digits of year)
White ball matched last 2 digits of draw number: 7
Mega ball matched last 2 digits of draw number: 0
What I can conclude from this: The draw number has equal (or more) influence than the date.
If you factor in the 'almosts' (any time a number was +/- 1 digit off), you can just about double each stat above.
