### Ultra Lotto 6/58 Where Winning Numbers Come From

Where do winning numbers come from? If we could only know! Let's try to find out with Statistics.

Based on 660 lottery 6/58 results, let's start counting.

## The Significance of 21 Draws

I figured out that the last 21 draws are the most significant source of winning numbers. For that reason, most of the tools that I have created cover the last 21 draws. You do not need a database of all results to analyze your data. All you need are the last 21 draws.

Here's one proof.

I have collected and gathered data, one by one for each result, as to where the winning numbers usually come from. These are my findings.

90.55% of the winning numbers come from the last 21 draws. This means that a winning number is repeated, or wins again, after 1–21 draws. The closer, the better — in other words, it is more probable for a number to win again within a shorter period from the time it last won.

Take #13 for example. The #13 is more likely to win again within the next 5 draws (60%). If it has not won within the next 5 draws, it is likely to win after 6–14 draws (27%). Statistically, the #13 does not win if it has not been winning for the last 8, 15 or 17 draws; and after 20 draws of not winning. If it has not been winning for the last 20 draws or longer, it may continue not to win (remain cold) until the 27th, 28th, 31st, or 38th draw from the last it won.

In the next section, you'll find the full statistics as to when a number usually wins again.

### Understanding the Stats below (Age Gist)

• Age refers to the past draws where Age 1 refers to the most recent draw. It's like counting the draws backwards starting from the most current. So, assuming draws are held everyday, today's draw is Age zero, yesterday's draw was Age 1, prior to yesterday's was Age 2, and so forth. Age also refers to the numbers draws it has not been winning.
• Occurence counts the number of times a winning number has won at a certain age. For example, 411 of the winning numbers usually win again in the next draw (Age 1).
• Percentage (%) simply calculates the probability of such occurence. For example, there is 10% probability that a winning number may win again in the next draw.
• Accum Prob is accumulated probability. It simply sums up the percentages prior to the next age to determine the range of probability. The table shows that, 50% of the winning numbers came from the last 7 draws; 80% of the winning numbers came from the last 15 draws; and 90% from the last 21 draws.

### Significance of the Probability Rates

• There's a 90% chance that a winning number may come from the last 21 draws.
• 80% chance from the last 15 draws.
• 70% chance from the last 11 draws.
• 50% chance from the last 7 draws.

#### Is it good then to pick 6 numbers from the last 7 draws?

No, because that covers only 50% probability. The other 50% may likely come from older draws.
