Mega Millions Odds

The Mega Millions Odds for First Prize are 1 in 175,711,538.

However, the odds of getting 5 numbers from any 56 are just 1 in 3,819,816.

The overall Mega Millions odds are calculated by multiplying the 3,819,816 x 46, to arrive at 175,711,538.  This is because every single one of the 3,819,816 possible 5 ball combination in 56 numbers can be matched with every single one of the 46 Mega balls.

Why is this important to helping you improve your Mega Millions Odds?  Well, if you play all 46 Mega Balls, you have one ticket (the one with the correct Mega Ball) where your overall Mega Millions odds have reduced from 175,711,538 to 3,819,816 – by anybodies standards, a pretty massive advantage.

If you play 46 random games, you may or may not get the Mega Ball.  Why risk it, when with 5 minutes marking all 46 Mega Balls you can guarantee it and improve your Mega Millions Odds?

How To Beat Mega Millions Odds

Here is an interesting item on the Mega Millions  “Cash Option” and the tax implications – nobody gets to keep the entire jackpot.

The “Cash Option” amount is around $224 million, but that is reduced by Federal and State taxes.  The “Annuity Amount” is roughly $13.6 million every year for 26 years.

I guess you need to conquer the Mega Millions Odds of  1 in 175,711,538 before you have to worry about Cash Options, Annuities and Taxes – but do not make plans to spend the entire advertised Mega Million Jackpot :-)

Winning Mega Millions Prizes

In this post we look at the Winning Mega Millions Prizes Structure – And how it can help you!

If you just have the Mega Ball, you have a winning Mega Millions ticket.  It may be small, but it is better than no win – this is why we recommend playing a minimum of 46 Mega Millions games covering all 46 Mega Balls.

However, you also have a chance of winning Mega Millions ticket for both 1 main number + the Mega Ball and for 2 main numbers + the Mega Ball.   This is why we recommend upgrading to playing 50 Mega Millions games that guarantee at least 2 of the 5 main balls and allow you to play all 46 Mega Balls (plus 4 a second time).

To get a First Prize winning Mega Millions ticket, you simply must have the Mega Ball – another reason it is critical to play all 46 Mega Balls.

However,the 50 game entry we recommend has a big secret advantage.  As well as guaranteeing at least 2 of the 5 main balls, your 50 Mega Millions games also include all 56 main balls at least 4 times each.  This means your 50 games include a minimum of 20 winning Mega Millions numbers from the main 5.

Because of this, your chances of a winning Mega Millions ticket with 1 main plus the Mega Ball are significantly increased.

It is this organized structure that significantly  improves you chances of winning Mega Millions.  Each Mega Millions prize pays more if you have the Mega Ball, ie, 3 main balls plus the Mega Ball pays out more than 3 main balls alone.  Because of this we recommend two things:

  • Make sure you have the Mega Ball and
  • Optimize your entry to get 2 or more main balls guaranteed.

There is no guarantee that you will get more than 2 main balls together, but the line that has the two guaranteed main balls obviously has 3 more numbers.  This means you have a 3-in-54 chance of advancing beyond 2 main numbers, and you have guaranteed the Mega Ball is in the mix somewhere.

How To Guarantee at least 2 main Winning Mega Millions Numbers together

Winning Mega Millions Odds

The Odds for Winning Mega Millions First Prize are 1 in 175,711,538.

Now, cracking a one-in-a-million shot is a big ask for anyone – but winning Mega Millions is 175 times harder!

So, the sensible questions is, “How do I improve my odds of winning Mega Millions?

The first stage is to determine how many games are required for a win of some kind.

There really is no rocket science to this – but so few people do it.  My first Free Winning Mega Millions Tip:  Play 46 games, using all of the Mega Balls, and you are guaranteed to have a winning Mega Millions entry of some kind. I recommend partnering with others, to spread the cost of playing 46 games.

My success has been partly about organizing lottery numbers to the best advantage, but also organizing partners to spread the cost of playing organized lotto systems.  If you are serious about winning Mega Millions, I suggest you copy this strategy.

However, I would push on slightly past 46 games, to 50 games.

In 50 games, you can guarantee at least two Winning Mega Millions balls together from the main five.

So, in just 50 games, you have guaranteed a minimum of two Winning Mega Millions prizes – one for 2 or more numbers from the main 5, plus one from a guaranteed Mega Ball.

Now negative, cynical people will say that’s not much.  But, if you are going to play anyway, guaranteed small prizes are a better option than no winning Mega Millions prizes.  Positive people will look at it this way:  In just 50 games, we have a head start of at least 2 of the main 5 winning Mega Millions numbers and the Mega Ball is guaranteed (it is not however guaranteed to line up with the 2 main winning Mega Millions numbers).  Depends on whether you see the glass as half full or half empty.

Mega Millions Numbers Distribution Analysis

Here is one of my Mega Millions Articles.

Mega Millions Numbers Distribution Analysis

By Terry Fisher

Most people play the main five Mega Millions numbers as a 5-Number game; there is significant advantage to viewing it as a 5-Individual-Numbers game, taking each ball one at a time.


Mega Millions Articles by Terry Fisher on EzineArticles.com
Over 100 draws to mid-June 2010, the lowest Mega Millions ball has run from 1 (obviously) to 29 – over half of the 56 numbers in MegaMillions. However, numbers that cover 80% or 90% of results are significantly less. The numbers 1 to 20 represent 91% of ball one results, while 1 to 15 represent 80% of our 100 draws.

If I was playing 10 Mega Millions games, rather than marking 5 numbers in 10 boxes, I would mark ball 1 first in the 10 boxes, restricting it to the numbers 1 to 15.

For ball 2, the absolute range is 4 to 45, but 4 to 28 covers 81 of our 100 draws and 4 to 31 covers 89%. So, I would mark ball 2 on my Mega Millions coupon next, using a range of 4 to 28.

The absolute range for ball 3 is 6 to 51, but 18 to 44 covers 80 of our 100 draws and 17 to 48 covers 91% of all results. I would now mark ball 3 on my coupon, using a range of 18 to 45.

A range of numbers from 11 to 54 is required to totally cover ball 4, but again a much narrower limit can contain most of the results; the numbers 28 to 52 cover 80% of all results, while covering 90% of results requires a range of 24 to 54. For ball 4, I would use numbers 25 to 50.

The final ball has a range of 24 to 56 to cover all 100 draws, but the numbers 42 to 56 cover 79% of results, while 38 to 56 cover 91 of the 100 draws. For my last ball, I would use numbers from 40 to 54.

While there is a scientific basis to the 80% and 90% limits, the numbers I actually chose above are based on a gut feeling that is somewhere between the 80% and 90% limits.

The important thing is that using what has worked in the past as a predictor of what may work in the future for improving your odds of winning Mega Millions is a big step forward. Of course, it does not work every single week, but knowing what works 80 to 90 per cent of the time is the Smart Mega Millions Strategy.

Winning Mega Millions Numbers: Consecutive Numbers

Winning Mega Millions Numbers: Consecutive Numbers

Understanding Consecutive Numbers is a critical element in improving your chances of  getting the Winning Mega Millions Numbers.

Here’s why.  In theory, 68 out of every 100 Winning Mega Millions Numbers will have NO Consecutive numbers.

At the time of writing this, the last 100 Mega Millions draws had 63 with no Consecutive Numbers.  Widen the range to the last 500 draws, and 327 of the 500 draws had no consecutive numbers; divide 327 by 5 and “average” per 100 actual Winning Mega Millions Numbers is 65 draws – very close to the statistical expectancy of 68 draws per 100.

But, dig deeper and it get even more interesting.  As well as the 327 draws having no consecutive numbers, a further 160 actual Winning Mega Millions Numbers had only 2 consecutive numbers.  Add 327 to 160 and no fewer than 487 of the 500 Winning Mega Millions Numbers had either NO consecutive numbers or only TWO.

As well as 2 x Million Dollar Checks, our Group has had many smaller wins

We highly recommend you make sure your entry has either NO consecutive numbers or only TWO.

Please note that Mega Millions Systems may not always observe this rule.  For example, a MegaMillions System that guarantees all 3-number combinations must obviously include 1-2-3.  However, if you are just marking off 10 games for a personal entry, the tips on this page will help you create an entry that improves your chances of getting the Winning Mega Millions Numbers, or at least enough of them for a payout.

Winning Mega Millions Numbers: Odds and Evens

We can look at various ways to get an advantage in forecasting Mega Millions Numbers; one of these is examining Odds and Evens.

If we look at Winning Mega Millions Numbers for 100 Draws to Dec 2010, we see the following actual results:

0 Odd + 5 Even = 3 times

1 Odd + 4 Even = 20 times

2 Odd + 3 Even = 36 times

3 Odd + 2 Even = 28 times

4 Odd + 1 Even = 13 times

5 Odd + 0 Even =0 times

These are actual results from drawn Winning Mega Millions Numbers.

What does Statistics say we could expect?  This -

0 Odd + 5 Even = 3 times

1 Odd + 4 Even = 15 times

2 Odd + 3 Even = 32 times

3 Odd + 2 Even = 32 times

4 Odd + 1 Even = 15 times

5 Odd + 0 Even =3 times

Look at -

2 Odd + 3 Even = 32 times

3 Odd + 2 Even = 32 times

Each of these Winning Mega Millions Numbers can be expected roughly 1 week in 3.  One-Third would be 33.3 times out of a hundred; the Statistical Expectancy is 32 times out of a hundred.  The actual Winning Mega Millions Numbers are very close to this.

How does this help us win Mega Millions?  Well, if 2 Odd + 3 Even OR 3 Odd + 2 Even is due 1 week in 3, if one of them had not been out for 5-6 weeks, then I would be focusing on a Winning Megs Millions Numbers Result of that type.

Do Winning Mega Millions Numbers Stats hold good in the long term?

Here are the Winning Mega Millions Numbers from 500 draws to Dec 2010:

0 Odd + 5 Even = 14 times

1 Odd + 4 Even = 75 times

2 Odd + 3 Even = 172 times

3 Odd + 2 Even = 164 times

4 Odd + 1 Even = 69 times

5 Odd + 0 Even =6 times

2 Odd + 3 Even (172 times) represents 34.4% of the 500 Winning Mega Millions Numbers.

3 Odd + 2 Even (164 times) represents 32.8% of the 500 Winning Mega Millions Numbers.

Winning Mega Millions Numbers with no Odds or 5 Odds happen so infrequently that I personally would ignore them.
