Mega Millions Stats: The Numbers Ranked by Frequency from Best to Worst, Hot to Cold

Reports created by FrequencyRank, lottery, lotto, Mega Millions statistical software.

The statistical reports rank the Mega Millions numbers by their frequency. The numbers are listed in descending order, from the most frequent (the hottest or the best) to the least frequent numbers (the coldest or the worst numbers). The reports show the number of hits; i.e. amount of drawings in which that particular Mega Millions number was a winner.

The ranking by frequency is performed two ways:
1) Regardless of position;
2) Position by position.

The second option tells you more eloquently why Mega Millions regular-number combinations such as 1-2-3-4-5 are so rare! Or full combinations like 1 2 3 4 5; 1. It is all about standard deviation, the watchdog of randomness (for everything in the Universe is random, not only lottery games).

The short-term ranges of analysis offer stronger tendencies, in accordance to the Fundamental Formula of Gambling (FFG). For far better results, run the special lottery software SkipSystem:

• Current Mega Millions game format: 5 regular numbers from a field of 75, plus one Mega Ball from a field of 15

You will notice that the discrepancy in frequencies is determined by the length of analysis (parpaluck) — for the position-by-position analysis as well. But now, some of the Mega Millions Regular numbers are so rare in certain positions that they tend to show frequency 0 only. Of course, Mega Millions Regular number 52 is the largest number possible in position 1 (for a 5/56 Mega Millions game). Still, 52 should show up in the first position, at least now and then. You know, just to satisfy those crazy-nut advocates of playing Mega Millions Regular-number combos such as 52-53-54-55-56! I haven't seen such numbers in the first Regular 5/56 position: 52, 53, 54.
