How To Increase Your Odds Of Winning EuroMillions

EuroMillions is one of the biggest international lotteries available in Europe. Every week it attracts millions of players who wish to change their fortunes. The question is, how can you really improve your chances of winning the jackpot?

The Odds

Every single ball in the EuroMillions draw has the same statistical odds of being drawn.  The only proven way of increasing your odds is to simply buy additional tickets, each with a different set of numbers.

The Statistics Of EuroMillions

Because statistically every lottery ball has the same odds of being drawn as the others, you would assume that the individual balls would have been appeared roughly the same amount of times, however this is not that case.

The frequency of individual numbers and sequences varies widely, with some numbers appearing dozens, if not hundreds of times more than others. This is why many players opt for more common numbers in a hope of avoiding "unlucky" or "cold numbers".

The most common numbers are: 50, 44, 4, 19, 38 and Lucky Star 8 and 3.

50 has appeared the most, 109 times in total. The most common Lucky Star number is 8, which has appeared 193 times so far.

The least common EuroMillions numbers are: 46, 41, 2, 48, 33 and Lucky Star numbers 11 and 10. 46 has appeared just 67 times, which is 42 fewer occasions than 50.

The most common pairs from 1 to 5 are: 11 – 29, 4 – 23, 1 – 48, 5 – 38, 15 – 28. 11 and 29 have been drawn together 18 times, once more than 4 – 23.

The most frequent pair of stars is 2 and 6, which has been drawn together no less than 32 times.

"Cold" Numbers

If you were to make a ticket comprised of the least often drawn numbers, it would look like this:

45 - 18 - 35 - 47 - 29 and the stars 4 – 8

Most people steer clear of these numbers, because they expect their habit of not being drawn will continue, however others opt for them as statistically they are long overdue.

The EuroMillions jackpot has reached a massive £51 million, so don't miss the next draw and play online now.
