Grand Lotto 6/55 Hot Number Groups

Grouped into 1s, 10s, 20s, 30s, 40s, and 50s, is there any group that frequently wins more than any other group?

First, let's eliminate what's against the odds.

Lotto numbers from 1 group only

Look at the following examples.

GroupLotto Numbers ExampleOdds
Grp1s1 - 2 - 3 - 5 - 8 - 90%
Grp10s10 - 12 - 13 - 15 - 18 - 190%
Grp20s21 - 22 - 24 - 26 - 28 - 290%
Grp30s30 - 31 - 33 - 35 - 37 - 390%
Grp40s42 - 44 - 45 - 46 - 47 - 480%
Grp50s50 - 51 - 52 - 53 - 54 - 550%

If you're playing lotto numbers that belong only to one group, like the examples above, the chance of hitting it to the jackpot is nada. Based on 277 draws, so far, this type of lotto numbers combination has zero probability of winning. So, that means, for now, you don't have to risk your money for this type of lotto numbers combination.

Lotto numbers from 2 groups only

Let's revise the above table. In the examples below, your lotto numbers come from 2 groups only.

GroupLotto Numbers ExampleOdds
Grp10s & 30s 12 - 15 - 30 - 31 - 34 - 382/277 or 1%
Grp1s & 40s03 - 05 - 08 - 43 - 45 - 49

This type of combination made it to the jackpot only twice; 2 out of 277 draws or 1%. It doesn't matter how many numbers you play from each group; and which group you use. What is significant is that if you play from 2 number groups only, your odds of winning is only 1%.

Lotto numbers from 3 groups only

What if your 6-number lotto comes from 3 groups only? For example, 2 numbers come from the 10s, 2 from the 20s, and 2 from the 30s; i.e. the 2-2-2 ratio. The other possible ratios or distributions are 4-1-1 and 3-2-1 in any order. It can be 1-2-3 or 2-1-3. It doesn't matter. You can use any group combination as well.
Group ratioLotto Numbers ExampleOdds
2-2-212 - 19 - 22 - 23 - 34 - 3954/280 or 19%
4-1-101 - 10 - 12 - 15 - 18 - 46
3-2-133 - 45 - 46 - 51 - 52 - 53

Based on 280 draws so far, 54 jackpot numbers came from 3 number groups only. That's a probability of 19%.

Playing lotto numbers from 4 groups only

Combining lotto numbers from 4 groups only seem to be more ideal. Based on 282 draws, 140 jackpot numbers combined four number groups only – that's a probability of 50%. There are only 2 patterns for this type of combination: 2211 or 3111, in no particular order or group. It doesn't matter which groups you want to combine provided you get your numbers only from 4 of the 6 groups. The table that follows shows an example of such combination.

2-2-1-102 - 09 - 17 - 19 - 33 - 46140/282 or 50%
3-1-1-106- 10 - 11 - 18 - 40 - 55

Playing lotto numbers from 5 groups only

Combining lotto numbers from 5 groups only seem to have a fair share. Based on 282 draws, 81 jackpot numbers combined 5 number groups only – that's a probability of 29%. There is only 1 possible pattern for this type of combination: 21111 — in no particular order or group. It doesn't matter which groups you want to combine provided you get your numbers only from 5 of the 6 groups. The table that follows shows an example of such combination.

Group ratioLotto Numbers ExampleOdds
2-1-1-1-106 - 11 - 14 - 31 - 45 - 5381/282 or 29%

To increase the chances of drawing the ideal combinations to 79%, play numbers from 4 groups (50% probability) and 5 groups (29% probability). Suppose you're playing 8 sets, 5 sets use 4 groups and 3 sets use 5 groups. If you are budget-constrained, play 2 sets from 4 groups, and 1 set from 5 groups.

Playing lotto numbers from all (6) groups

If you are playing the standard system 6 where each number comes from each group, this type of combination made it to the jackpot only 5 times out of 273 282 draws. Therefore, this type of combination, which uses all the groups, for example 8 - 12 - 23 - 34 - 49 - 50, is not highly probable. By avoiding this type of combination, you narrow down your choices as to which numbers should you combine.
