Use past California Lottery winning numbers to help you win California-only games.
While the Powerball and Mega Millions jackpots get all the attention because of the incredibly large payouts, lost in all the media hysteria are the state lottery games.
In California, for example, you can win millions playing California-only games like SuperLotto Plus, Fantasy 5, Daily 4, Daily 3, Daily Derby, and Hotspot.
Each game offers you the chance to win a range of cash prizes, and you can win decent amounts by matching just a few numbers.
If you play SuperLotto Plus, for example, there are 9 ways to win cash with a jackpot starting at $7 million, which can easily reach $30 million or more. To play, choose five lucky numbers from 1 to 47 and one MEGA number from 1 to 27. You win a prize if you match just the MEGA number or win big by matching all 5 numbers plus the MEGA number. Drawings are held every week.
Fantasy 5 is another California-only jackpot game with a jackpot of $175,000. Similar to the other games, to win you have to match all 5 numbers with each number being between 1-39. However, you can also win cash prizes for matching only three numbers. The Fantasy 5 draw occurs every day right after draw entry closes at 6:30 p.m.
The key to winning cash for any lottery is of course picking the winning numbers. Many people use special dates, like birthdays and anniversaries, while others select the uniform numbers of their favorite sports figures. And many other lottery players go with their “gut” or numbers that just feel right.
What if you knew which numbers were most commonly drawn for your favorite games? Would that alter the numbers you’d pick? If you play Powerball, would you change your picks if you knew that 32 and 41 have appeared 193 times, or just over 10% of the time, which makes them the most commonly drawn numbers in Powerball history? Or what about the fact that in order to win the big Powerball jackpot, you must also guess the “powerball” in addition to all five regular numbers, and the most commonly drawn powerball number is 20, which has appeared 63 times (or 3%).
Would knowing that kind of percentages change how you play the California Lottery games? If so, here are the numbers you need:
In the last 1000 draws, 15 is the luckiest number. It’s been drawn 137 times (13.7% of the time). The numbers 25 (13.0%) and 33 (12.9%) are the next two lucky numbers. Cold or unlucky numbers are 3 and 28. Both have been part of the winning combinations less than 8.5% of the time.
California Fantasy 5
If you play the Fantasy 5, you select 5 numbers between 1-39. You can win something even if you only match 3 numbers ($3) – but, hey, that’s still better than losing. In the last 1000 draws, the winningest numbers rank as follows:
34 drawn 14.9%
14 drawn 14.5%
