Are always lots of lotteries offering big prizes around us.
But how can we win these big prices?
I always had an eye on them and tried to understand more about numbers and their statistics.
Nobody has the absolute answer and nobody can guess the lottery numbers, but is absolutely verified that checking the previously drawn numbers and calculating statistics you can improve your chances to win the lottery.
I won’t give you any crystal ball, but I will try to post here relevant statistics that could help you win. I will start with Saturday Lotto / Tatts Lotto and based on feedback that I get from readers this post could evolve and become an independent page or even a whole nine yards website…. who knows?
Where can you find the raw data?
Few Aussie official lottery sites don’t publish anymore the whole past draws, but you still can find them on Lottery West and Tatts websites:
What can we do with all these numbers?
What I normally calculate is the frequency, pairs, triplets, quartets, draws sum and then group the numbers in four different categories ‘hot’, ‘cold’, ‘due’ and ‘previous’.
‘hot’ - numbers drawn in the last 10 draws, but not the last draw
‘cold’ – numbers having a lower overall frequency and not drawn in the last 10 draws
‘due’ - numbers having a higher overall frequency and not drawn in the last 10 draws
‘previous’ - numbers drawn in the last draw
All these stuff can help filter out the numbers which are unlikely to be drawn in the next draw.
For all past draws I have calculated frequency, pairs, triplets, quartets, draws sum and then group the numbers in four different categories ‘hot’, ‘cold’, ‘due’ and ‘previous’….. so I could see a pattern:
About 66% of drawn numbers are ‘hot’ number
About 15% of drawn numbers are ‘cold’ numbers
About 6% of drawn numbers are ‘due’ numbers
About 13% of drawn numbers are ‘previous’ numbers
This pattern is almost the same, over time…..draw after draw, since ’86.
So, what can you do?
If you play 6 number, play 4 x ‘hot’, 1 x ‘cold’, 1 x ‘previous’ by example….less numbers to choose from, more chances to win.
If you want to increase the chances to win a price (not necessarily the big one), play 6 or 7 or 8 ‘hot’ numbers…
Let’s see some updated Tattslotto statistics – just created this database:
I will update it weekly for Tatts Lotto and please comment – if you are interested in other lotteries – let me know and I will create few other on line lotto statistics databases.
