### Grand Lotto 6/55 Low Vs High Numbers

Is there a possibility that the jackpot numbers are all between 1 and 28; or 29 and 55?

There are only 4 occurrences where all jackpot numbers are between 1 and 28 (low numbers); and 4 occurrences where all are between 29 and 55 (high numbers). The rest of the results are a mix of low and high numbers.

The low numbers are simply the lower half of 1 to 55; and the high numbers are the upper half. In Statistics, dividing the data into two parts is called median. The low versus high numbers follows that technique where the low numbers are 1 to 28, while the high numbers are 29 - 55.

### The common mix of low and high numbers

Statistically, a mix of 3 low and 3 high numbers are the common mix. These comprise 32% of the total draws (348 draws in this study). A mix of 2:4 or 4:2 low:high numbers comprise 46%. All together, these comprise 78% of the total draws. On average, the 3:3, 2:4, and 4:2 mix occur every 1.28 draws.

Following is the complete stats for low and high numbers mix. (Index means that the instance occurs, on average, every x-number of draws.)

### Grand Lotto 6/55 Sum Of Jackpot Numbers

Not all Lotto 6/55 combinations are probable. One way to eliminate the combinations with lower probability is to get the sum of the jackpot numbers, then set the lower and upper limits. To set these limits, eliminate the sums with lower frequency, then get the range of sums that most frequently occur. You can eliminate the lower 10% and concentrate only with the higher 90%.

To get the sum of the jackpot numbers, simply add the 6 lotto numbers. For example, 48 + 19 + 46 + 27 + 20 + 40 = 200; 200 is the sum of the jackpot numbers.

Gathered 348 jackpot numbers from the Grand Lotto 6/55 drawings, the smallest sum is 72, which is the sum of 5 + 7 + 10 + 12 + 18 + 20. The highest sum is 287, which is the sum of 39 + 41 + 49 + 51 + 52 + 55. Average sum is 170. Most frequently used is 153, occurring 8 times, which is not that significant.

To capture a more significant set of sums, establish a certain range. For example, sums that are less than 104 comprise 5% of the drawings. Sums greater than 239 also comprise 5% of the drawings. Therefore, sums from 104 to 239 comprise 90% of the total draws. If you opt for a 50% range, these are the sums of 144 - 196.

What follows is the summary of the calculations, eliminating the lower and higher values that occur the least frequently. Concentrating on the 90% already gives a fair chance.

### Grand Lotto 6/55 Establishing The Lower And Upper Limits

There are 28,989,675 possible combinations for Lotto 6/55 ranging from 1-2-3-4-5-6 to 50-51-52-53-54-55 inclusive. Your odds of winning is 1:28 million. Nevertheless, even if each combination has a 1-is-to-28-million chance or odds of winning, not every combination is likely probable. Some lotto combinations are unlikely.

Arranged numerically and ranked according to winning frequency of each number, statistical data will show that not all combinations are probable. Examine the data from the previous post. The winning frequency of each number was broken down to 6 positions depending on its numerical order. Notice that not all numbers frequently win for every position. (Data with zero values means zero winning frequency.)

#### Establishing the Lower and Upper Limits

By establishing the lower and upper limits, you eliminate the lower probability. You set your own rules in setting the limits. You may opt to include only the favorable 90% or 80% or even 88%. It's all up to you. In the example below, the limits or bounds were established by eliminating the frequency values that are less than 2% of the total drawings.

 Lower limits 01 04 12 24 30 39 Upper limits 16 26 38 46 53 55

Based on the limits above, your lotto combinations should be within the limits or set range of lotto numbers. Any combination beyond the limits have lower probability. All lotto combinations lower than 1-4-12-20-30-39 are unlikely – possible but not highly probable at this time based on the data studied. Likewise, all lotto combinations higher or greater than 16-26-38-46-53-55 are also unlikely at this point.

### Grand Lotto 6/55 Winning Frequency Explored

Now that you know which Lotto 6/55 numbers frequently win, how do you combine them? Which 6 numbers should you combine? Is it possible to win with 1-2-3-4-5-6 or 50-51-52-53-54-55? Technically, yes. These are possible combinations. Statistically, maybe not.

Jackpot umbers are drawn in no particular order. However, arranging the numbers numerically in ascending order, that is, from lowest to highest value, statistics gives us a different picture. Take a look at the data below.

#### Winning frequency based on numerical order

Lotto # 1, being the lowest number, is always in the first position; lotto # 55, being the highest, is always in the last position. All numbers in between can play for the 1st through the 6th position. However, not all of them can ideally be in the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, or 6th position. What are these numbers and where can they ideally be positioned?

Take a look at #49. It is ideal only in the last position. Though it can play for the 5th position, the probability though is low. That means, where X is any number, X-X-X-X-X-49 is better than X-X-X-X-49-X.

Examine #12. It is ideal for the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd positions but not for the 4th, 5th, and 6th positions. That means 12-X-X-X-X-X, X-12-X-X-X-X, and X-X-12-X-X-X are ideals but X-X-X-X-X-12 is not. As an example, 9-12-26-35-43-55 is a better combination than 1-3-8-9-10-12, statistically speaking.

Having considered the ideal numerical positions of the lotto numbers, you can see that statistics sets some limits as to how lotto numbers should be combined. The lotto numbers above with zero frequency or occurrence already tells you that playing these numbers in such order is not a good idea.

You can set your own rules as to which numbers you wish to eliminate to set your limits. For example, using the data above, all values 0-9 are all greyed out because of a low probability chance. You may opt to exclude as well those with 10-15 frequency values. You can also use the 90% or 80% rule wherein you concentrate only in the upper 90% or 80%; thus, eliminating the lower 10% or 20% probability.

Now that you know these data, you can now zero in on the most likely jackpot numbers.

### Grand Lotto 6/55 Numbers Frequency Of Winning

How frequent does each number of Lotto 6/55 win? Below is the table of all the 55 numbers arranged from top to bottom according to its frequency of winning. The data below is based on 345 drawings.
 Lotto # Frequency % 26 59 17% 55 49 14% 29 47 14% 40 47 14% 18 46 13% 12 45 13% 39 45 13% 7 44 13% 34 44 13% 45 44 13% 6 43 12% 9 43 12% 54 42 12% 17 41 12% 28 41 12% 30 41 12% 31 41 12% 51 41 12% 5 40 12% 24 40 12% 52 40 12% 10 39 11% 22 39 11% 25 39 11% 35 39 11% 48 39 11% 2 38 11% 4 38 11% 20 38 11% 13 37 11% 42 37 11% 19 36 10% 36 36 10% 50 36 10% 53 36 10% 46 35 10% 41 34 10% 43 34 10% 47 34 10% 1 33 10% 8 33 10% 3 32 9% 15 32 9% 37 32 9% 38 32 9% 49 32 9% 21 31 9% 33 31 9% 16 30 9% 23 30 9% 44 29 8% 11 28 8% 14 26 8% 27 26 8% 32 26 8%

### How to use the frequency data

The frequency indicates how a lotto number tends to turn hot or cold. The higher the frequency, the hotter a number can turn to be. The lower the frequency, the colder the number tends to be. Though each number has a tendency to turn hot or cold at unpredictable time, those with higher frequencies perform better than those with lower frequencies.

To illustrate, if 32 has not been winning for the last 15 draws, most likely, it will hibernate, which means, it won't be winning for even a longer period. In contrast, 26 has the tendency to be repeated within 1 to 10 drawings. If you are thinking between two numbers as to which has the tendency to be repeated within a hot period (which is 9 to 10 draws), choose the number with a higher frequency.

Another use is how to capture a higher hit index. Hit index is the recurrence of a winning number within a certain number of draws. Lotto numbers with higher frequency values result to higher hit index.

### Grand Lotto 6/55 Second Prize Numbers Barely Win The Second Time

We already know that jackpot numbers are not repeated. Once drawn, they are never drawn again. What about the second prize winning numbers.

Second prize winning numbers are any combination of 5 out of the 6 jackpot numbers. If you match any 5 out of the 6, you win a second prize.

What if you play only five of the 6 jackpot numbers? Is there a chance of winning? Based on 319 draw results, any 5 numbers out of the 6 jackpot numbers are rarely repeated. In fact, it only occurs once for every 319 results.

Based on the 319 jackpot numbers, 1914 five-number combinations can be formed. Two of these 1914 combinations are exact duplicates. Therefore, out of 1913 unique combinations, one combination is repeated; i.e. a ratio of 1 : 1913 or 0.05% probability.

To benefit from this finding, you need a tool that checks if any 5 of your lotto numbers have matched any of the previous jackpot numbers. If 5 of your lotto numbers have won before, might as well change your combination.

An updated Lotto 6/55 database is now available for free download at www.amikvs.com/lottotips/. The database now covers Lotto 6/55 drawings from 19 April 2010 until 18 April 2012, a total of 309 drawings.

### Grand Lotto 6/55 Jackpot Numbers Are Unique

Update. Based on 340 Grand Lotto 6/55 results, jackpot numbers remain unique. So far, no jackpot result has won twice.

Based on 316 Lotto 6/55 jackpot numbers (these are Grand Lotto 6/55 draw results), not one is a duplicate of another. That means, so far, all jackpot numbers from Grand Lotto 6/55 remain unique. No duplicates, whatsoever. The significance of this is that, if you are targeting to win the jackpot prize, make sure that each of your 6-number combination does not duplicate any jackpot numbers from previous drawings.

Until when should this statistical fact remain?

As of today, our lotto tip# 1 remains true. Out of 4,026 5811 results from all lotto system-six games (6/42, 6/45, 6/49, 6/55), only one combination has won twice. That's 0.02% 0.017% probability. From my previous calculation, based on 4026 records, 0.02% was the probability rate. That rate further decreased to 0.017%. Therefore, as far as Lotto 6/55 is concerned, we can expect that its jackpot numbers can remain unique even when it reaches 4000 to 5000 records.

### What are trending today?

The data below are based on 2012 May 16 to July 2 drawings.

 Hot numbers 6, 26 Spring numbers 9, 10, 12, 15, 16, 17, 20, 22, 33, 34, 43, 52, 53 Turning cold numbers 14, 31, 42, 45 Cold numbers that may hibernate 39, 41, 49

Spring numbers are not really hot numbers but they tend to pop out from time to time. These are numbers that have been drawn more than twice during the last 15 draws. Numbers not shown above are called the underdogs. They win surprisingly.
