Everyone wants to hack the billion-dollar lottery, but few know how to do it right. And everyone is playing for the estimated jackpot of US$1.1 billion because who doesn’t want to be a billionaire overnight?
Here, we will tell you exactly how to choose the right numbers and a hack to improve your odds of winning Mega Millions.
How To Choose the Right Numbers
Most people play the lottery by choosing lucky numbers. Some of them are usually between 1 and 31 because they represent birthday dates. Still, if you pick numbers this way, as most people do, you are more likely to share the top prize with anyone who has the same numbers. Does that mean that it’s better to choose uncommon numbers? Not necessarily. The only way to really make an informed decision is by knowing the numbers that have shown up in past wins, as shared by U.S.A. Mega Millions.
According to them, the most common numbers drawn over the last seven years are:
- 14: Drawn 52 times
- 17: Drawn 51 times
- 10, 31,38: Drawn 38 times
And the Mega Ball numbers most commonly drawn are:
- 22: Drawn 32 times
- 11: Drawn 28 times
- 9: Drawn 26 times
- 10, 18, 24: Drawn 25 times
The numbers you should probably stay clear of since they have been drawn the least amount of times are 49 and 51. And the most uncommonly drawn Mega Ball number is 8.
None of this by itself guarantees to win, but choosing the right numbers plus our next strategy is the best way to improve your odds.
