Calculate Your Odds of Winning the Lottery Mega Millions Powerball

How do you calculate your chances of winning the lottery, the Florida Lottery included? You can calculate each set the odds for each of the different lottery games you play. Use a small calculator in your hand, or the calculator available on your computer for free. Simply multiply the numbers and then add one division process to determine the “order” of your numbers.

What you really need to know is how many balls were used in the drawing of the winning numbers. 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, PA, NJ Lottery or Texas Lottery. 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 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.

In the first example, 56 balls are in the first group while 46 balls are in the secondary. 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 big drum is spinning along with the first part of the drawing. 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 remaining balls to one.

From the total number balls in the drum, the odds of you correctly matching number 3 are now 1/54. Your chances of matching the fourth winning number with the third drum ball are now 1/53.

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 number reduces it to 1/55/1/54/1/53. Once the fifth ball is released from the drum, you now have a chance that the fifth winning number will match the odds of 1/52. This is the first piece of the formula that calculates your chances to win the lottery, which includes the Florida Lottery เว็บหวย.  

These are the odds of you winning five numbers: 1/56, 1/25, 1/54 and 1/53. The fraction’s “1” is your best chance to correctly match 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 to win. These odds would not be in your favor if you tried to pick numbers in exactly the same order they were drawn.

Fortunately, or unfortunately, you do not have to pick the numbers in exactly the same order as they were drawn. The second step in the formula will lower 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, divide 120/417.451,320. This is one that you will need a calculator. The odds of you winning this lottery by 120/458/377,920 is reduced to 1/3,819 816 These odds are nearly 3.5 million to one against you winning this Pick 5-56 ball lottery game.
