## Predicting the Outcome of the EuroMillions Draw

You have to understand that probability theory is simply a reliable guide. Naturally, the expected frequency and the actual frequency will not always match exactly.

You use probability to predict the future outcome of the game to guide you on how to play your game.

For example, if we want to know in advance the outcome of EuroMillions after 2000 draws, we use the same formula for expected frequency:

If P(pt) = is the probability of pattern pt, Then, P(pt) x 2000 draws = the number of times this pattern is estimated to occur in 2000 draws.

If we are to predict the outcome of all the odd-even patterns, we will come up with the following prediction table below:

Pattern | Probability | Estimated Occurrence in 2000 draws |
---|---|---|

3-odd-2-even | 0.3256621797655230 | 651 times |

2-odd-3-even | 0.3256621797655230 | 651 times |

4-odd-1-even | 0.1492618323925310 | 299 times |

4-even-1-odd | 0.1492618323925310 | 299 times |

All-odd | 0.0250759878419453 | 50 times |

All-even | 0.0250759878419453 | 50 times |

As a smart EuroMillions player, you don’t want to waste your money on patterns with low probability. That is the power of probability calculation as we apply it in EuroMillions.

As a lotto player, you want to win the jackpot. Therefore, you should stick with either 3-odd-2-even or 2-odd-3-even and forget about the rest of the patterns.

You get the same idea when it comes to low-high patterns. You don’t want to pick a combination whose composition is purely low numbers or strictly high numbers.

However, EuroMillions is not only about low-high or odd-even patterns.

We discuss low-high and odd-even patterns to show that the lottery can be predicted to an extent. But the low-high and odd-even patterns don’t provide the whole picture of the EuroMillions game.

You must understand the EuroMillions game as a whole if you want to win the game. For you to achieve that, you have to understand intricate combinatorial patterns, which is the real key to EuroMillions’ success.

Let’s proceed to discuss what advanced patterns can do to level up your lotto playing strategy.

## The Odd-Even Patterns In the EuroMillions

Odd-even patterns do have an impact on your number selection strategy. You fail to choose the right composition of odd-even numbers, and you fail to win even before you play.

The Euromillions number field can be divided into two sets:

Odd = {1,3,5,7,9,11,13,15,17,19,21,23,25,27,29,31,33,35,37,39,41,43,45,47,49}

Even = {2,4,6,8,10,12,14,16,18,20,22,24,26,28,30,32,34,36,38,40,42,44,46,48,50}

The table below shows the complete odd-even patterns in EuroMillions with their corresponding probability:

Patterns | Probability | Calculus |
---|---|---|

3-odd-2-even | 0.3256621797655230 | 32.5662179766% |

3-even-2-odd | 0.3256621797655230 | 32.5662179766% |

1-odd-4-even | 0.1492618323925310 | 14.9261832393% |

1-even-4-odd | 0.1492618323925310 | 14.9261832393% |

5-odd-0-even | 0.0250759878419453 | 2.5075987842% |

5-even-0-odd | 0.0250759878419453 | 2.5075987842% |

1 | 100% |

The table shows that the first two are the best ones to play in EuroMillions. To help you figure out the best and the worst ones, I further divide the patterns into three groups:

Best Patterns | Fair Patterns | Worst Patterns |
---|---|---|

3-odd-2-even | 1-odd-4-even | All-even-numbers |

2-odd-3-even | 1-even-4-odd | All-odd-numbers |

As a EuroMillions player, you should either play the 3-odd-2-even or the 2-odd-3-even patterns.

Do you want proof?

Let’s peek at the past EuroMillions results and see how the game follows the dictate of probability.

## The Odd-Even Patterns Based On The Actual EuroMillions Results

Remember that in the list of the odd-even patterns above, we also included the probability. We use the Probability value to determine how likely an event will happen in a given period.

In this case, we want to know the frequency of each odd-even pattern. To take things up a notch, we will compare our calculation against the actual results of the EuroMillions.

There are 1,276 draws in EuroMillions from April 16, 2004, to February 4, 2020. Therefore, we calculate the expected frequency by multiplying the probability by 1,276 draws.

Expected Frequency = Probability X 1,276

In the case of 3-odd-2-even with the probability of 0.3256621797655230, the expected frequency will be 416.

Expected Frequency(3-odd-2-even) = 0.3256621797655230 x 1,276 = 415.544941381 or 416

Doing similar computation with the rest of the odd-even patterns, we will come up with a completed comparison table below with accompanying graph:

As you see from the graph above, you should notice the agreement between probability prediction and the actual results of the EuroMillions game. The agreement proves that the EuroMillions game follows the dictate of probability principle.

- 3-odd-2-even is expected to appear 416 times – it occurred 461 times in the real draw.
- 4-odd-1-even is projected to appear 190 times – it appeared in 184 times in the actual draw.
- 0-odd-5-even is supposed to be drawn 32 times – it was drawn 31 times in the real draw.

Thanks to the power of probability. And you don’t need statistical analysis of the historical results to do such high-accuracy and high-precision prediction.

## Knowing the Best and the Worst Combination Should Help

Getting the right composition will surely give you the best shot possible at winning the EuroMillions. Of course, you don’t win any money by matching the pattern. But as a lotto player, you want to play with a sensible strategy and get closer to the winning numbers.

It’s extremely difficult to win the lottery. Lotterycodex has no power to change that fact. But Lotterycodex can help you be wrong less. The lottery should be fun. But at least be sensible when choosing your combinations and don’t waste your money on worthless combinations.

Here in Lotterycodex, we don’t say you increase your chance of winning by choosing the right composition. What we do say is that when you play the Euromillions, at least, be wrong less. Don’t waste your money on useless combinations. Lotterycodex patterns are here to guide you on that aspect. (Check out the Lotterycodex Calculators)

I encourage you to check Lotterycodex free guide to learn more about how we calculate everything. Lotterycodex is the only lottery calculator that combines combinatorics and probability calculation in one system.

If you are playing blindly, there’s no guarantee you are not falling into one of these worst patterns in EuroMillions. So I propose that you should incorporate the use of probability theory in your playing strategy.

The benefits are apparent. First, you are confident that you are not wasting your money, and second, you get the best shot at winning the game.

The difference between the best and the worst is so huge. You don’t want to take it for granted.

We don’t say that those combinations under the worst group will not occur. We say that those combinations have the worst ratio of success to failure.
