Mega Millions is a lottery game drawing 5 regular numbers AND 1 Mega Ball.

1. Introduction to Mega Millions, Mega-Millions: Calculate the Odds

Mega Millions is a two-ballset lottery game, but somehow different from Euromillions-type lotto games. Both Mega Millions-type and Euromillions-type are two lotto games in one. Like Euromillions, the first drawing machine of Mega Millions draws five regular lotto numbers (from 1 to 75, in this case). But the second machine draws just 1 ball, also like regular lotto numbers, from 1 to 15. The last Mega Ball can be equal to any of the five regular numbers.

The odds of Mega Millions are calculated for two dependent lotto games. The first part of the game, 5 of 75, has a total of 6 types of odds, from 0 of 5 to 5 of 5. The second part of the game has two types of odds, from 0 of 1 to 1 of 1. The rundown of the Mega Millions probabilities (odds):

The probability to win the jackpot is 1 in 258,890,850. Evidently, the Mega Millions game offers far fewer prizes than the total number of odds elements.

The new Mega Millions game required an update to the online odds calculator and random generator. Version 7 of the super generator employs superior innate filtering for lotto games, including for Mega Millions.

The Powerball_6 module generates optimized combinations for Mega Millions, the same way as for the other lotto games (except for Keno). The pick, horses, roulette and sport betting combinations are not optimized. The generating online control generates now 1000 combinations instead of 100. As I have stated many times, the more lotto combinations generated, the higher the probability to win (degree of certainty). According to Fundamental Formula of Gambling (FFG), the chance to hit is lower in the beginning. We must go closer to the FFG median to have to highest winning chance. It did take a very long time to get the FFG median by generating just 100 lottery combinations at a time. Now, the generator offers better time compression. Think about it as saving money. You ran the generator for a few thousand Mega Million combinations. Chances are they were not winners. But you didn't play them either, so you saved money. A higher number of repetitions get you closer to that highly elusive winning combination (worth over half billion dollars sometimes).

2. Mega Millions, Mega-Millions Winning Strategy: Pick the Numbers Most Likely to Hit in the Next Lottery Drawing

There is also the strategy in gambling, including lotto and lottery. Even a game like Mega Millions is prone to strategies, especially number pairing (and especially in the second ball set). Who knows what games will we see in the future? The lottery commissions will constantly change the games to counter-attack the computer impact.

There is no lotto strategy that I specifically designed for Mega Millions. But you can apply the general lotto and lottery strategy I present on the main strategy page. You can divide Mega Millions in two lotto games: One game draws five numbers, the other draws two numbers. It is similar to the Mega Millions or Euromillions-type of games. I present Mega Millions-type strategies based on the first five regular lotto numbers.

The mathematics of lotto and lottery, including Mega Millions, is founded on the Fundamental Formula of Gambling:

        log(1 - DC)
N = ----------------
       log(1 - p)

In the Fundamental Table of Gambling (FTG) there is a column p=1/8 that describes exactly a lotto game drawing 6 winning numbers from a field of 48 numbers. 6 divided by 48 is 1/8 or 0.125. That's how you calculate the probability p, when considering one lotto number at a time. If the Mega Millions game draws 5 regular lotto numbers from a field of 75 numbers, the individual probability is equal to 5/75. That is very important parameter. It is thoroughly analyzed at this website, specifically on the main page dedicated to lottery strategies.

You can download from this site general-purpose software that analyzes the skips for the Mega Millions game: SkipSystem.EXE. Open the two reports (SKIPPb.1 and SKIPPb.2) in a text editor, like MDIEditor And Lotto WE. You may want to set the font to Courier 10 point. The report #2 can be of valuable help to you!
