Lotto Sum

The sum of winning numbers generally fall within a rather narrow range surrounding the average for that particular game. The farther the sum of your numbers are away from the statistical average, the lower you chances of winning will be. Here are the average sums for the big games:
Powerball: 133 (without the Powerball)
Mega millions: 140 (without the Megaball)

Odd/Even Split

Statistically, lotteries generally have about the same number of odd and even numbers. For five ball lotteries (excluding any bonus ball), this means you should always play either 3 odd and 2 even numbers, or 3 even and 2 odd numbers. Picking 4 or 5 numbers that are all even or odd, drastically decreases your odds.

Consecutive Numbers

According to Consecutive Numbers in Lotteries, there is a 32.47% chance of having two consecutive numbers in powerball. Anything beyond two consecutive numbers will all but eliminate your chance of winning. Powerball has never drawn four or five consecutive numbers.

Number Groups

Lottery numbers are generally spread out among all the different number groups. However, more often than not, winning numbers exclude one group. On the other hand, three groups are rarely excluded. Also, you should never pick all low numbers or all high numbers. So spread out your numbers, but not too much.


Picking numbers that are multiples of each other is a bad choice. Multiples of five are not only improbable hits, they are very commonly played so payouts would be very low if they do hit. You should also avoid any series of numbers seperated by five. For example 2-7-12-17-22 would be a poor choice because of the layout of the sheets used to pick lottery numbers.

Same Last Digit

The odds of every winning number having the same last digit is very low. Two might be okay, but avoid any more than that.

Previous Winning Numbers

Lightning doesn't strike the same place twice, and neither does the lottery. Playing an entire series of numbers that has already won is not a good idea. However, this doesn't necessarily hold true for individual numbers. According to http://www.how-to-win-powerball.info/ , "A number tends to repeat more often on the next draw then what statistical analysis would allow." So playing a single number from the previous winning numbers is a good idea, but more than that only decreases your odds of winning.

Birthday Number Syndrome

Payouts with numbers composed entirely (or mostly) of numbers 31 and under are significantly lower than average. This is because of the large number of people that use birthdates as their numbers. Also, picking all numbers of 31 or less ignores at least two of the number groups. While two groups are often excluded in winning numbers, you are statistically better off only excluding a single group of numbers.
