Based on the current Mega Millions results, 2 specific patterns have occurred in about 71% of drawings. Learn the patters and hot numbers for future Mega Millions jackpot drawings.
The Mega Millions jackpot has reached as high as $500 million! Today’s drawing is for $45 million. A huge amount, even if you have to share the winnings.
Should you play? Absolutely.
Playing Mega Millions is fun way to fantasize about what you would do if you became instantly rich and it’s a great way to socialize with friends by sharing dreams, playing together if you purchase tickets as a group, and just talking about it around the water cooler. In short, the $2 price for a ticket is a relatively small one to pay for the enjoyment of thinking through how we might organize our lives differently if we had all those millions. It’s called fun.
Now, if you’re going to play Mega Millions, here’s some advice that may help you improve your chances of winning.
First, do not buy multiple quick picks. They always have repeating digits. If you have 3 tickets all containing the same number, and that number is not drawn, (1 in 69 it won’t be) then you automatically have 3 losers.
Second, don’t pick favorite numbers based on mathematical patterns, birthdays, anniversaries, or jersey numbers. If you win with these numbers, you’ll share your prize with multiple winners, reducing the amount of money you will receive. You might win a $30 million jackpot, but if 5,000 people chose the same number, you’ll be getting only $6,000.
Third, play a combination of hot numbers and at least one long-shot number to give yourself the best chance of winning the Mega Millions jackpot.
The Mega Millions jackpot, of course, is won by matching all five white balls (each one is numbered 1 through 75) in any order, plus the final ball called the Mega ball (numbered 1 through 15) for a total of six matching balls. This last number can be the same as any of the first five. You win based on how many of your numbers are matched with the numbers drawn. Mega Millions drawings are held at 11 p.m. ET on Tuesday and Friday evenings.

Click on the icon that looks like a gear for Mega Millions.
Next, you’ll see a chart that displays the hot, cold and overdue numbers for Mega Millions. These numbers are based on the last 50 draws.
The “Hot Numbers” are the numbers that have been chosen most frequently during the past 50 Mega Millions drawings. The “Cold Numbers” are of course the numbers that have been chosen the most infrequently during the past 50 Mega Millions drawings.
Now here’s where it gets interesting: Notice that the hot Mega Millions numbers are typically spread across the entire number field from 1 to 75. If you divide the number field in half, you have a bottom half and a top half. In a 75-number game like Mega Millions, numbers 1 to 38 would be in the bottom half, and numbers 38 to 75 would be in the top half. All high numbers or all low numbers are rarely drawn, occurring only 3% of the time. The best mix is to have 3/2 or 2/3 which means three high and two low, or two high and three low. In other words, three numbers in the bottom half and two numbers in the top half. Or visa versa. For the current Mega Millions results, one of these 2 patterns has occurred in about 71% of drawings, so it’s a very strong pattern to follow for future Mega Millions drawings.
The Power of Overdue Numbers
Typically numbers that have been out for six games or less account for about half of future winning numbers. Losing numbers that have been out for 9 games or less account for about 2/3 of all the winning numbers. And losing numbers that have been out for 12 games or less account for about 3/4 of all the winning numbers. Therefore ,based on cold numbers, you can generate a list of overdue numbers.
To realize your best chance of winning Mega Millions, you need to choose mostly hot numbers, but make sure to include an overdue number as well.
This combination of winning and overdue Mega Millions numbers produces the second table called Combinations.
The Combinations chart suggests numbers based on the reasoning above and avoids patterns and the “lucky” number syndrome.
