I outlined the silly experiment I am doing by picking “hot” and “cold” numbers in the MegaMillions drawing. Here are the results from the August 16 draw:
|Number Set||Drawing 1|
|Family Numbers||No matching numbers|
|“Hot” Numbers (=>3x in last 20 draws)||No matching numbers|
|“Cold” Numbers (=1x in last 50 draws)||One matching number|
|Quick Pick||No matching numbers|
So, the cold numbers at least got on the board but there’s no real advantage to any of the combinations after the first draw.
