Are over due numbers over rated?  When I play Megamillions, I usually play 12 lines to cover all 52 numbers which includes over due numbers, but I was checking the data file for Megamillion and discovered that the top 36 numbers had matched three or more in 94% of all 111 drawings and 98% of the last 50 drawings and matched five in 28%-30% of both.

Over due numbers are over due because they aren't hitting and if they aren't hitting, you won't win anything playing them.

So for my picks for the next Megamillion drawing, I'll use only those thirtysix numbers to generate my combinations of five.

Those numbers are :02 03 04 05 06 07 08 10 14 15 16 18 19 20 21 22 24 26 27 28 29 31 32 33 37 39 40 41 42 44 47 48 49 50 51 52
 

I will be checking the files of other lotteries I play to see if they have a similar pattern.

    RJOh :

    I dont quite understand how you chose 5 Numbers out of 36 Numbers total and only play 10 Lines. I usually circle the ones that come out the most and put them in order, such as 05,10,20,28 and so on. I then chose a few Cold Numbers which means numbers that come out less, 30 ect...

    Do you use a wheeling system? I use Gail Howard's wheeling system I got from her book. It works very good, so far I won $150 from it.

      To Kristin,

      As I explained in an earlier post in the systems section, I use a RNG that I wrote using GWBasic in which I put all the numbers I wish to play and parameters to use to pick the combinations.  With those 36 numbers I will most likey get 5-6 combinations if I use them only once, but more if I use them more.  The parameters will include such limits as sums, gaps, ranges, matches in the past and etc.  I prefer to use this RNG over a wheel because a wheel for that many numbers would be too big and I would have to filter out some of the results.  I will most likely use the numbers enough times to generate 10 - 20 lines to play.  I have a collections of wheels but I seldom use them.  Sounds like you are having good luck with them.

      Good luck to you
