### Objective of this study

• To find out if a trending number would always trend and cause a probable win

### Update

Various groups were used to test if trending numbers would continue to trend and cause a probable win. A 21-day period was used at first. Then it was shortened to 16 days, then to 13 days.  All groups mentioned revealed that a trending number may not always win. One significant observation is that a number that frequently won at a certain short period remains top ranking even if it has stopped to trend. For that reason, the high score of a number is misleading.

To remedy the irrelevant high score in relation to what's trending, the period covered was shortened to 5 days. As a result, the high scores are more suggestive of what's trending.

The chart above tallies results based on the current 5-day period, counting from today and backwards. The data are updated from time to time.

To check if the chart refers to current results, you may check it here.

Tip. A number that has a score of 1 is more probable to win than a number with a score of 2 or zero. Currently, the probability rate is 48.33%. A score of 1 means that a number has won once in a given 5-day period.

### How To Spot A Probable Trending Number

Here is an illustration.

There are 31 balls: 17 are painted red, 9 are painted blue, and 5 are painted yellow. If you are going to pick 2 balls blindfolded, what's the chance of picking red, blue and yellow balls? There are 17 red balls, so most likely, you'll pick 2 red balls; or 1 red ball and 1 blue ball.

Applying the same logic to EZ2 lotto, if there are 17 numbers that had won once, most likely, these are the numbers that might be drawn next. Suppose these 17 numbers that had not won for longer than 5 days, the same way, most likely these numbers could also be drawn the next time.

Based on the chart above, compare the numbers with 1 win and zero win. If the numbers with zero win are starting to build up, most likely, at least one of them would win. On the other hand, if the numbers with 1 win are starting to build up, most likely, one of them would win and may start to trend.

#### Scope of first study

These numbers are in hibernation [ 06 • 08 • 10 • 24 • 25 ]. So far, a trending number may win again the next day or after a day or two. One or two cold numbers may just win out of the blue. Looks like when a number becomes hot, it stops to trend. A trending number may win again but not always. In fact, dormant numbers are likely to win more than trending numbers. Numbers in the middle (median) are the ones that win most of the time.

### Summary of Findings

This study has been concluded. If you want to use the tool I used for this study, you may download it here.
• This particular study covered 48 draw results from a 16-day period. An ideal period may be 14 to 16 days but that will depend on how many numbers there are in hibernation. Though it's a matter of preference, one or three numbers in hibernation must constantly exist in a given period.
• Dormant numbers won more frequently than top or trending numbers for the reason that there were more dormant numbers than trending numbers.
• A top number ceased to trend once it reached its peak.
• There were fewer numbers above the median. For that reason, they won less frequently.
• Only two numbers won more than twice consecutively.
• Time difference between two winning occurrences is a significant factor to determine which number may probably be drawn again. Probability rates are stated below.

### EZ2 Lotto Tips - Time Difference

• 50% that a number had won again after a day or immediately after
• 30.36% that a number had won again two times consecutively
• 19.64% that a number had won again after a day.
• 26.79% that a number had won again after two or three days.
• 87.50% that a number may likely win again within 5 days.

### One Way To Combine EZ2 Numbers

Based on a 21-day study.
1. Add 8 to a number. For example 22 + 8 = 30. Your combination is [ 22 • 30 ].
2. Deduct 8 from a number; eg 11 - 8 = 3. Your numbers are [ 11 • 03 ].
3. Aside from 8, you can also play with these numbers: 2, 6, 14, 15, 1, 3, 11
4. Eliminate those combinations that had won during the last 30 days.
