Perhaps you're wondering if lotto jackpot numbers are composed of all odd, all even, or a mix of odd and even numbers. If it is a mix, how many numbers are odd or even? Based on sampled 1,143 lotto 6/49 results, 33% of the jackpot numbers had a mix of three odd and three even numbers. Below is the complete data.

Based on the above data, a mix of 3 odds and 3 evens are okay, as well as the ratio 2 odds and 4 evens, or 4 odds and 2 evens. However, you cannot put aside that from time to time, a ratio of 1:5 or 5:1, though rarely, can also become true.

Odd:Even | Count | Percentage | To Play |
---|---|---|---|

3:3 | 376 | 33% | 4 lines |

2:4 | 282 | 25% | 3 lines |

4:2 | 281 | 25% | 3 lines |

1:5 | 92 | 8% | 1 line |

5:1 | 88 | 8% | 1 line |

6:0 | 17 | 1% | 0 |

0:6 | 7 | 1% | 0 |

Based on the above data, a mix of 3 odds and 3 evens are okay, as well as the ratio 2 odds and 4 evens, or 4 odds and 2 evens. However, you cannot put aside that from time to time, a ratio of 1:5 or 5:1, though rarely, can also become true.

If you want to cover all probable ratios, you can play 12 lines (12 combinations) where 4 of them have the 3:3 odd-even ratio. See the column

**To Play**. Depending on your budget, you may play fewer lines. If you opt to play 10 lines, play 3 lines of 3:3, and 2 lines each for 2:4 and 4:2. If you opt not to play the 1:5 and 5:1 ratio, you may play 2 lines for 3:3 and one line each for 2:4 and 4:2.Where do you position the odd and even numbers? Based on probability data, the position of the odd and even numbers are not that significant. The variance between one odd-even pattern to another is very minimal.
