As of the last draw (3 Sept 12), below are the positions of each lotto 6/55 number.

Without giving detailed stats, let me explain what the numbers reveal. There are 31 lotto numbers in the hot zone (summer and spring). There are 24 lotto numbers in the cold zone (autumn and winter). If there are 24 red balls and 31 blue balls in one basket, what is the probability that you will pick red balls versus blue balls? Without using calculation, you can get the answer. If there are 40 balls in the basket, there is a chance that you can pick more red balls than blue balls. The larger the number (or population), the chances are greater.

Let's expand the colors. I labeled the seasons with different colors. Imagine that these are the colors of the balls in the basket. There are 18 orange balls and 16 brown balls. What are the chances that you will pick brown or orange balls? Most likely, you will pick 2 brown balls, 2 orange balls, 1 blue ball, and 1 red ball. Perhaps, that gives you an idea where the winning numbers

Let's say, statistics say that 1 to 3 of the jackpot numbers usually come from the last 6 draws. That's the standard. The exception to the rule is that 4 to 6 numbers is also a possibility though it's rare. It is also possible that the jackpot numbers can all come from the cold zones. But that is rare as well.

So, if you want to take greater risks, it is good to think out of the box from time to time.

__may__come from.*(Update 9.6.12. To check if statistics serves us right, here's the result of the 5 Sept 12 draw: 16-20-28-08-27-51.)*#### In every rule, there is an exception

Is there a chance that you can pick more red balls than orange balls considering that there are more orange balls than red? Yes, in lotto randomness, everything is a possibility though not everything is highly probable. There is always an exception to the rule. That is the reason why at times the combination of the jackpot numbers are considered extraordinary, which means, the way the numbers were combined are outside the norm or standard factors.Let's say, statistics say that 1 to 3 of the jackpot numbers usually come from the last 6 draws. That's the standard. The exception to the rule is that 4 to 6 numbers is also a possibility though it's rare. It is also possible that the jackpot numbers can all come from the cold zones.
