I've been trying to come up with a pool of numbers to play MegaMillions that didn't include all 52 numbers.  I've noticed that during the last 215 drawings, a pool of numbers that  had been drawn during the previous 15 drawings would have contained 36-45 numbers and would have had all 5 winning numbers 66 of those times and 4 or the winnings numbers 82 of those times.  Tonight that pool would include 39 numbers.

During the last 194 drawings, a pool of megaball numbers that had not be drawn during the previous 36 drawings would have contained 22-30 numbers and would have had all 5 winning numbers and the winning magaball 4 times and would have had 3 or 4 of the regular numbers with a winning megaball about 70 times. Tonight that pool would include 26 numbers.

During all 231 MegaMillions drawings, a pool of the most popular 26 numbers for both mega balls and the combinations had all 5 winning numbers and the megaball 4 times, 5+0 three times, 4+1 thirty times and contained the magaball 153 times.  That group include these numbers:03 04 06 07 08 10 13 15 18 21 22 24 26 29 30 31 32 33 34 36 38 43 46 47 49 52, which have all been drawn 5 times or more including magaball and the combinations.

Good luck MegaMillions players.

      Group #1 - numbers that have hit in the last 15 drawings:
      03 05 06 07 08 09 10 11 12 13 15 16 17 18 19 21 22 23 24 25 27 28 29 31 32 34 35 36 37 38 39 41 42 44 45 48 50 51 52

      Group #2 - mega balls that haven't hit in 36 drawings:
      02 03 04 05 08 09 10 11 14 18 20 21 25 26 28 29 35 37 39 42 44 47 48 50 51 52

      Group #3 - the most popular 26 numbers including combinations and megaball for all drawings:
      03 06 07 08 10 13 15 16 18 20 21 22 24 26 28 29 31 32 36 39 44 46 47 49 51 52



      Group #4 - the most popular 26 numbers (combinations only) for all drawings:
      02 06 08 10 14 15 16 17 18 20 21 22 24 26 28 29 31 32 36 37 39 44 46 49 51 52


      Using CoverMaster I came up with a wheel that had 26 lines and 80% coverage for 3 if 5 that I could use to play groups #2 - #4 and used all the numbers as a megaball but I decided to use group #1 in 13 lines and used the most popular repeat rate to pick my megaballs.  The most popular repeat rates(the numbers of draws before a megaball repeats) for megaballs are 4,8,17 and 37


      These were my picks for tonight:
       
       12 21 41 45 50    +13
       09 13 22 28 37    +20
       11 15 17 36 48    +07
       03 06 07 18 35    +49
       05 08 10 27 34    +34
       16 23 25 32 44    +27
       19 24 31 38 42    +40
       07 25 29 39 51    +19
       13 16 27 42 52    +36
       17 31 32 34 45    +46
       08 19 35 37 39    +46
       06 09 11 21 38    +34
       10 12 18 24 36    +19


      These would have been my picks had I used Group #2 with the CoverMaster wheel

        I never considered the birthday numbers, but with last night's  and last Tuesday's winner, maybe I should have.  Many times there are no winners with these low numbers.

        During all 232 Mega Millions drawings, a pool of birthday numbers (1-31) have matched:
        0+1 = 1
        1+1 = 9
        2+1 = 33
        3+1 = 55
        3+0 = 34
        4+1 = 29
        4+0 = 21
        5+1 = 11
        5+0 = 8

        I still will be trying to pick a small group of numbers that I can afford to cover until they have a winner.

          Tonight I plan to use several groups and only play numbers common to most of the groups which should reduce the group size.  With 20 numbers, I can get 90%+ coverage for a match 3 in 20 lines, hopefully the group will have more of the winning numbers than last time.

          Good luck MegaMillions players.

              Thanks namaxplace,

              07, 04,38 was in the group and I played all 20 numbers in the combination and as the mega ball so I matched 04 and 07 as mega ball for $3.  Four of the numbers had hit during the previous 22 drawings, but 33 hadn't hit in 56 drawings.

                FWIW...

                Ever tried LuckSmith ( color=#0000ffwww.lucksmith.com)? It's a site I've recently launched that uses a similar strategy/approach to playing as the one you outlined. Current accuracy statistics are published on the site so you can compare it to your method. I offer a 1-week trial subscription, so you can try before you buy.

                Any comments or feedback are welcomed.

                  Mike,

                  You might want to recheck your published odds for MegaMillions(odd or 5/5+1 =1:131,145,920).  I'm looking to come up with a smaller group on average than 40/28 to play.  I played a 20/20 set last night with 90% coverage for 3if5 for $20 and won $3, that's about the maximum that I'll spend.  Good luck on your site.

                    Thanks for the heads up on the odds glitch. I thought I checked the math that calculates those against the published odds, but obviously I didn't check MegaMillions.

                          I use CoverMaster to make up a wheel as I need one for the amount of coverage that I can afford. It also allows me to pick a few combinations the way I like and used them in the wheel design.  With 20-25 numbers I can't afford to even cover 100% a wheel that guarantee 3if5 so I usually cover 90% to 95% of the wheel.

                            So how is it going? any jackpots?

                            I use WEeditor saliu.com one It has gotten me 3 numbers but that;s its I know its hard to win the lotto or beat it but I'm becoming almost an expert with the program.



                            I will look into CoverMaster

                              In my humble opinion, winning a jackpot in MegaMillions or PowerBall is a once in a life time experience for a few lucky people.  I got lucky 2 years ago and matched 5 in the Ohio Super Lotto for $1500 and that's as close as I ever came to winning a jackpot.  Even with a pool of 20-25 numbers that have all the winning numbers, you still would had to be lucky to have all the winning numbers in one line with a $10-$20 bet, but that is the reason people use software and systems even though there's no real proof their odds of winning are improved.

                              Good luck to you.
