EZ2 (Pick 2) Lotto All-Time Hot Numbers (Top Numbers)

Hot numbers are lotto numbers that frequently win within a short period like a month or shorter. Top numbers are referred to as all-time hot numbers that cover all the actual results. In some cases, covering all the actual results may not be necessary for the reason that the significance of the data remain the same or just slightly changes. In such case, the all-time hot numbers may cover only a few years.

Hot numbers that cover a longer period like a year or two slightly change from year to year. The ranking of the numbers may go up or down but rarely flank to the bottom or peak straight high. Once a number belonged to the top hottest numbers, it remained on top even if its ranking changes up or down. Likewise, a cold number remains in the bottom 10 from year to year even if its ranking slightly increases or decreases. What is transient are the numbers around the median. These numbers may be in the top 15 in the previous year but may be in the bottom 15 in the next year.

The following are the hottest EZ2 lotto numbers covering the drawings from 2011 to 2013.

How To Use These Data

The next question is: How do you combine the numbers? Must you combine top and top numbers only, or one top number and one bottom number?

Calculating the last 3183 results, the winning combinations are usually top numbers or a combination of 1 bottom number and 1 top number. Below is the summary.

The Coldest EZ2 Lotto Number Combinations In The Longest Hibernation Period

The EZ2 Lotto started in 5 July 2004 with the combination 17-06 winning the first draw. Since then, 17-06 has won 7 times, the last of which was on 10 Oct 2012.

There are, however, combinations that have won only once or twice since 2004. In particular, the combination 08 -29 (coldest and laziest combination) has won only once since the EZ2 lotto started. While other combinations have been frequently winning or currently active, some combinations have not been winning since 2009 or 2010.   These are combinations that have been hibernating for a very long period; or cold numbers that have become like frozen with time.

Cold Combinations In Either Order

These combinations in either order have remained cold since 2009 and 2010. The number of times these numbers have won were counted since the very first draw date. Are your favorite numbers listed here?

These combinations in their exact order have not won since 2009. Since 2004, they have won only once to 4 times. Their reverse combinations, however, have been frequently winning; if not, have become active or currently hot today. If these are your numbers, it means you have not been winning.

Cold Combinations In Their Exact Order (Since 2010)

The following EZ2 combinations in their exact order have not won since 2010. One combination has won only twice since 2004 which makes it not only cold but also lazy. On the contrary, one combination has won 11 times since 2010 but has turned cold after 2010. If these are your favorite numbers, try their reverse combinations. The two dates, Last Drawn and Drawn Again refer to the last 2 draws when the combination won. If it is empty, it means that the numbers have not won since. The last column After counts the number of days it took the numbers to win again. Take for example, 24 - 05. The last time it won was on 11/18/2010. Then it won again on 11/29/2013. The combination has been cold for 3 years and 11 days.

Just a November 30 observation (Bonifacio Day). When I posted this on Nov 28, the numbers 11-30 won twice – on Nov 28 and Nov 29. The numbers 24 - 05 won again after 3 years and 11 days calculated as follows: 2013 - 2010 = 3; 11 - 11 = 0; 29 - 18 = 11. That's 3-0-11. Coincidence?

EZ2 Lotto Odds Of Winning

The odds of winning from EZ2 lotto (or Pick 2) is 1:496; ie the chance to win once only out of 496 possible combinations. If the exact order of combinations is to be considered, there are 961 combinations that can be played. With 961 combinations, your odd of winning decreases, which is 1 out of 961 combinations.

With the aid of probability data, some combinations can be eliminated to increase the odds. What if you want to find out which number – 1 to 31 – wins frequently.

Below is the data collected from EZ2 Lotto results drawn from January 2011 to September 2013. The lotto numbers are ranked according to the number of time the number won (frequency of winning). If you are going to look at the rate of probability, it looks there's not much difference. You can interpret this as all numbers having equal  or fair share of winning. On the other hand, between 224 and 167, the frequency of winning of the numbers 10 and 18 respectively, the difference of 57 recurrences can look significant. The recurrence is another way to look at the probability data. The figures refer to the number of draws. For example, number 10 recurs (likely wins on an average) every 13 draws.

EZ2 (Pick 2) Lotto: Co-Relation Between Odd-Even And Low-High Numbers?

Based on statistical data in this report, around 50% of the winning combinations are a mix of odd and even numbers. Around 25% are either both odd numbers or both even numbers. This means that an odd number has a 50% chance of being drawn. The same is true with an even number. So, if the combination is either both odd numbers or both even numbers, the probability is split into two — 25% for the odd number and 25% for the even number.

Unexpectedly, based on data from 2011 to 2013, 50% of the winning combinations comprised numbers that were both even.

The change prompted me to study further the results. I wondered if a number being odd or even has something to do with the other attributes of a number like low or high, hot or cold, top-ranking or otherwise.

In my analysis, statistics reveal that even numbers have nothing to do with low or high numbers. However, if the combination consists of both odd numbers or an odd-even mix, the probability is about half-higher if the the numbers are a mix of low and high numbers rather than if the numbers are both low (1 to 15) or both high (16 to 31) numbers.

EZ2 (Pick 2) Lotto: Some Interesting Facts About Double-Number Combinations

Statistically, double-number combinations appear to win less frequently than non-double combinations. But not all. Some double-number combinations tend to win as frequent as non-double combinations. For example, (7 - 7) and (16-16) have each won 7 and 8 times respectively during the last 3 years (2011 - 2013). In contrast, (1 - 1) and (6 - 6), (8 - 8), (11-11), (18-18), and (30-30) have each won only once during the same period.

In the Philippines, a double-number combination is termed "pompyang", which means "cymbals", a percussion instrument played by a member of a marching band.

Double Combinations Versus Non-Double Combinations

There are only 31 double-number combinations versus 930 non-double (ordered) combinations. For that reason, non-double combinations appear to win more frequently than double-number combinations. As to non-ordered combinations, there are 465 non-double combinations vs 31 double-number combinations. Taken individually, there are double-number combinations which are at par with non-double combinations as far as winning frequency is concerned.

Some Interesting Facts About Some Double-Number Combinations

(7 - 7) had won on 1/26/11, 2/27/12, 3/1/12, 3/2/12, 3/4/12, 1/24/13, and 7/25/13. If you're fond of number series exams in IQ tests, you will find the dates interesting. Take a look at the first two dates. The combination won again after 1 year, 1 month, and 1 day.

The combinations above are 4 of the 7 double-number combinations that had won 5 to 8 times during the last 3 years. The other three are (3-3), (4-4) and (19-19). Did you also notice how the number 7 exists in these interesting facts?
