### EZ2 Lotto Numbers Frequency Of Winning Based On Order Of Drawing

Theory:
Some numbers are frequently drawn first while some are frequently drawn the second.

Would you like to find out which numbers are usually or more frequently drawn first than second? If the theory is true, how significant is the probability of winning?

#### Numbers Commonly Drawn First

The following table presents the EZ2 numbers based on how frequently they were drawn as the first number — that means the first ball from the drawings. The numbers are ranked according to their frequency (Freq) of winning; ie the number of times they were drawn first. The figures under Recur (recurrence) is to give you an idea how often a number wins. For example, if Recur is 23, the number is drawn every 23 days. However, these figures represent average days. They are not exact and absolute. The Recur is only to give you an idea. The fact is: a number can recur in no specific pattern or sequence.

#### Numbers Commonly Drawn Second

The following data refer to EZ2 lotto numbers that were usually drawn second — ie, the second ball drawn.

31 20 210 36

Based on the statistics above, the winning frequency of each number ranges from 210 to 287 times; or, 2.8% to 3.8% probability share.

#### Conclusion

Generally, the statistics above state that a lotto number, whether drawn first or second, has 2.8% to 3.8% probability range of winning, which is not very significant. That means, it does not matter whether you play your numbers in the first or second in order.

Individually, however, if you are going to consider the ranking only, some numbers rank high if drawn first; but rank low if drawn second. For example, lotto number 01 is usually drawn second (ranks 6th) than first (ranks 23rd). The frequency difference, however, which is 24 (257 - 233), is not that significant.

Though it is true that some numbers are more frequently drawn first than second, or vice-versa, the probability of winning first or second is only a matter of -34 to 43 difference; or -0.4% to 0.5%.

#### How To Use The Data

Though it is not significant whether a number was drawn first or second, you can use the above data to limit the numbers you wish to play. It is not practical to play all the numbers because even if you surely win, your lost is greater than your winnings. To limit your numbers, pick those that rank high; or, pick a number with a high ranking and pair it with a low ranking number.
