Ultra Lotto 6/58 Trending Numbers

Currently studying random results of the Ultra Lotto 6/58. The following are my notes. As long as my database is up to date, consider the stats below as current and live.

What's Trending (Live Stats)

The bar chart that follows shows what numbers are trending from Ultra Lotto 6/58 based on the number of wins of each number during the last 21 draws. Hover your cursor or mouse pointer over the bar to see which lotto number has won a number of times.

Numbers with zero data are considered numbers in hibernation – or the numbers that have not been winning for longer than 21 draws. If you can't see the complete data, view it here on Google Drive.

Hot Numbers

The top 6 numbers don't usually win all at the same time. There's no harm, though, in doing so. Quite common is that at least 1 hot number can win. There are cases when 2 hot numbers had won all at the same time. Instances of 3 or more hot numbers that had won all at the same time is but extraordinary. On the other hand, there were a few times when no hot number had won.

Once my study is completed, I would be able to give figures. 

Data Groups Based On Win Times

If you are going to group the data, you will be able to see a different picture of the results. The data that follows groups the lotto numbers 1 to 58 according to their recurrence of winning (ie the number of times a lotto number has won in a given period).
The pie chart changes as data come in. As you are reading this, the pie chart data may have changed. Nevertheless, my explanation below can guide you on how to interpret the pie chart.

  • 0 - 7 indicates the number of wins
  • n% indicates the percentage of the 58 lotto numbers winning in a group of wins
To illustrate, if 1 win is equivalent to 31.6%, it means that 18 of the 58 lotto numbers had won once (58 x 31.6% = 18).

Findings as of 11 Aug 2017

As of the date mentioned just above, groups 1, 2, and 3 make 74.2% of the pie. This means that most of the lotto numbers (43 numbers exactly) can win up to three times. Rarely that the numbers can win 4 - 6 times in a given period. So, if you are going to pick your numbers, you will be picking from groups zero to two. You can ignore group 3 because if they win, they would belong to group 4, which is rare. That's the reason why you pick numbers from groups zero to 2.

Remember that we are talking about probability here. We're not giving exact math. So, if you want to pick a number from group 3, by all means, you may do so. You can refer to the bar chart as to which numbers have won once or twice and have not won.

Which Numbers Would Probably Win

These are the lotto numbers that belong to each group. Zero means no-win, 1 means 1 win, 2 is two wins, etc. To understand the data, suppose there are 58 balls labeled zero to 6. What's the probability that you will pick balls labeled 2, 3, or zero? Based on that perspective, you will get an idea where the winning numbers might come from.

Another observation is this (based on the pie chart above). Numbers rarely win 4 times. If that is so, the lotto numbers under group 3 may unlikely win again, unless one or more of them had won 21 draws ago. Why 21? Our data captures always the last 21 draws. So after every draw, the data add 1 to 6 lotto numbers; but at the same time, it deducts 1 from other 6 numbers. The stats remain the same if it adds and deducts 1 to the same number.

Example of Combining Numbers

In combining numbers, don't limit your combinations to 6 numbers. 

Pick one number from group 0 { 6 • 11 • 13 • 17 • 37 • 48 • 31}. The #31 (with only 1 win) is included because after the next draw, it would have a zero win, unless it wins again.

Pick two numbers from group 1, and two numbers from group 2.

Pick a number from either group 1 or group 2.

If you feel like it, pick a number from the top numbers (groups 4, 5, 6).

After the next draw,  #25 and #43 from group 3 would be under group 2. If they win again, they remain in group 3.

Trending and Non-Trending Numbers

[ 07 • 13 • 18 • 27 • 37 • 49 • 55 ]
These numbers may hibernate for a longer time. When numbers enter the 22nd zone (hibernation period), they usually hibernate for a longer period. The 22nd zone means the number has not won for the last 22 draws or older. Current stats is that 15 out of 16 instances that entered the 22nd zone continued to hibernate longer.
Cold Zone
[ 02 • 11 • 15 • 17 • 35 • 44 ]
These are the numbers in the cold zone – a period where a number has not won in the last 16 to 21 draws. Current stats is that 34 out of 38 instances that entered the cold zone, remained non-winning for 17 to more than 21 draws. 17 out of 38 remained in hibernation; 15 out of 38 remained cold for 5 more days; while 4 out of 38 won again after 16 draws. In other words, the numbers that entered the cold zone (16th zone), 19 out of 38 won again (after a long period of idleness) before it entered the 22nd zone; the remaining 17 started to hibernate.
Hot and Active
[ 14 • 16 • 38 • 51 • 29 • 41 • 52 • 53 ]
These numbers currently have won 2 to 3 times within the last 6 draws.

When Does A Number Win Again

The following statistics may change in time depending on the number of results tested.
After 1 or 2 draws or immediately after
The probability of a number to win again on the next draw or after 1 or 2 draws is 37.17%. This is based on 84 instances of the same event. (In Statistics, an event is used to describe an activity. Examples are lotto draws and winning of a number. Instances when a number wins again after, say, 5 draws is also an event.)
After 4 to 7 draws
The probability of a number to win again after 4 to 7 draws is 37.17%. This is based on 84 instances.
After more than 20 draws
The chance of a number to win again after 21 draws of not winning or longer is very slim. Only 4.42% chance. So, might as well forget those number that have not been winning for more than 20 consecutive draws.
