How do you calculate the odds of winning the lottery (including the Florida Lottery)? You can calculate each set the odds for each of the different lottery games you play. With the help of a small calculator in your hand, or the free calculator available on your computer, you can multiply the numbers and add one division process to determine the “order” of the numbers that are required for a particular game.

You need to know the total number of winning numbers drawn from …… Are they 59, 56 and 42 or 49 or 39? There may be a secondary drawing to draw a single additional ball, such a Powerball “red” or Mega Millions” “gold” ball. You need to also know how many of these balls are included in that group. Are there 39 or 49?

It doesn’t matter if you are playing the Florida, Ohio Texas, Texas, Pennsylvania, NJ Lottery or any other state. This strategy will give you the exact odds. Florida Lottery’s odds of winning are 6/53. New York Lottery is at 6/59. The lottery numbers ratios for the Ohio Lottery as well as Massachusetts Lottery. Wisconsin Lottery and Washington Lottery are 6/49. Illinois Lottery has an average of 6/52.

This information 4d lottery will be in front of your eyes and you will have your calculator ready to help you work out the formulas. To win the multimillion dollar jackpot, you need to pick five regular balls and one additional ball that matches the winning drawn numbers.

The first example has 56 balls in the primary group and 46 balls the secondary group. Match all of the following balls (5 + 1) in order to win the Jackpot. Super Lotto Plus by California Lottery has a 47/27 rating. The drawing’s initial portion is underway and the big drum is spinning. This first ball has a 1/56 chance of matching your number.

If you remove one ball from the drawing, your chances of matching the next number are 1/55. Each number drawn sees a ball removed. This reduces the total number of balls.

From the total number remaining in the drum, the odds of you correctly matching number 3 are now 1:54 The chances of matching the fourth and final ball are now reduced to 1:53, when the third winning number is taken out of the drum.

As you can clearly see, each time a drum releases a ball, the odds decrease by one. Starting with a 1/56 chance, each new winning numbers reduces it to 1/55/1/54/1/53. And with the fifth and fifth balls, you have a chance of 1/52 matching this fifth winning number. This is the first piece of the formula that calculates your chances to win the lottery, which includes the Florida Lottery.

Now, take these five odds that represent the five winning numbers (1/56, 1/54, 1/53, and 1/52). The fraction’s “1” is your best chance to match the drawn numbers.

Next, take your calculator and multiply the top numbers (1x1x1x1x1) equal to one (1). Next, multiply the bottom numbers 56x55x54x53x52. The result is 458,377.920. The new fraction is now 1/458,377.920. This means that you have a 458,000,000 to 1 chance of winning. If you had to choose the numbers in exactly the same order they were drawn, these are your odds of winning the Pick 5/56 ball lotto game.

You do not have to pick the numbers according to the order they were drawn. The second step in the formula will reduce your odds. This allows you to match five of the winning numbers in any sequence. This step multiplies the number draw balls, which equals five (1x2x3x4x5). With a calculator in your hand, you can see that the total equals 120.

To allow you to choose the five matching numbers, you divide 120/417.451,320. This is one that you will need a calculator. The odds of you winning this lottery by 120/458,377920 is reduced to 1/3,819 8,816 These odds are nearly 3.5 million to one against you winning the Pick 5/56 Ball Lottery game.

If this were the Mega Millions Lottery you would add the “goldball”, to the five winning balls, to win the Multimillion Dollar Jackpot. The chance of matching it correctly is 1/46. You can only draw one number so it must match exactly. This means that you have only one chance to get it right. Now, multiply 3,819-816 by 46.

Take out your calculator and multiply the numbers. Your final odds of winning Mega Millions Jackpot is 175,711,536. That’s clearly stated at 175million, 711 thousand and 5 hundred 36 thirty-six. Now you can calculate the odds of you winning the Mega Millions Lottery.
