## The Low-High Patterns Based On The Actual EuroMillions Results

Here’s another probability study using the low-high pattern.

We derive the low-high patterns using the following sets:

Low = {1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,…,25}

High = {26,27,28,29,30,…,50}

Again, the results of the study show that EuroMillions follows the dictate of probability.

The table and the graph above reinforces the fact that the EuroMillions game is subordinate to the principle of probability.

- 3-low-2-high is expected to appear 416 times – it occurred 468 times in the real draw.
- 4-low-1-high is projected to appear 190 times – it appeared in 216 times in the actual draw.
- 0-low-5-high is supposed to be drawn 32 times – it was drawn 22 times in the real draw.

As a EuroMillions player, you should pay attention to the composition of your combination and make sure that it follows either the 3-low-2-high or 2-low-3-high patterns. And never play the rest of the low-high patterns.

## 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.

## Combinatorial Patterns in EuroMillions

Let me describe a mathematical method that will catapult you to Euro Million’s success. Deep within the finite sets of EuroMillions numbers are combinatorial patterns that should tell you the best combinations to play and the worst ones to avoid.

The image above describes the complete randomness of a lottery game. It shows that the lotteries are made up of independent random draws that, when put together with time, exhibit a mathematically deterministic behavior given the law of large numbers. See The Visual Analysis of a True Random Lottery with Deterministic Outcome

Let me clarify that we don’t need statistics to determine the best combinations in a lottery game. Statistics is not the right tool to analyze a lottery game.

So if statistical analysis will not provide the best clue, what will?

Well, since the lottery has a finite structure, any question that we ask is a combinatorial and probability problem to solve rather than statistical.

So instead of statistics, we need the concept of combinatorics and probability theory. These two mathematical tools will help predict the general outcome of the EuroMillions game from the perspective of the law of large numbers.

This prediction is possible because a truly random lottery follows the dictate of probability.

Again, we can explain this better from the context of combinatorial patterns.

For example, we can ask:

“What is the probability that the next winning numbers will be 1-2-3-4-5?”

To solve this question combinatorially, we can rephrase the question this way:

“What is the probability that the next winning numbers will be three-odds and two-even numbers?”

Can you see it? Composition matters.

And the composition of a combination is best described using a combinatorial pattern. You can look at combinatorial patterns in many different ways. There are simple patterns and there are Lotterycodex patterns.

We will talk about Lotterycodex patterns later (you don’t want to miss this section).

Let’s discuss the simple ones first.

## February 2020 — Changes to the Jackpot Cap

On 1st February 2020 a number of changes were made to EuroMillions and the jackpots on offer. The changes were implemented to help jackpots grow bigger and faster than under previous game rules, without an increase in ticket price or the number of balls to choose from. In addition, the new prize structure meant that the average number of Superdraws taking place each year would increase.

The Jackpot Cap, which stood at €190 million since January 2012, increased to €200 million, with the potential of climbing further to €250 million in future. Read more about the EuroMillions jackpot cap changes from February 2020.

## Lotterycodex Patterns and The Best Combinations In EuroMillions

Earlier, we discussed that any questions you ask about the lottery must be a combinatorial and probability problem to solve.

So to know the probability of 1-2-3-4-5, we ask the question “What is the probability of a combination composed of three-odds and two-even numbers?”

However, this is not the only question we can ask, we can also ask:

“What is the probability of a combination composed of five low numbers?”

The problem though, two different questions may provide different probability results.

When you deal with low-high and odd-even patterns as two separate probability analyses, you will encounter serious contradiction.

To illustrate the contradiction, 1-2-3-4-5 is one of the best combinations under odd-even patterns.

But then we know that under the analysis of the low-high patterns, such combination is one of the worst ones.

So combinatorial mathematics and probability theory can be very confusing if you are not careful.

So what is the solution?

The solution is Lotterycodex patterns

Using Lotterycodex patterns, we put these two analyses together into one combinatorial equation.

So now to solve the probability of the combination 1-2-3-4-5, we ask this question instead:

“What is the probability of a combination composed of three-low-odds and two-low-even numbers?”

That’s how Lotterycodex patterns can help you along the way. However, combinatorial calculation with probability analysis can be very complex so I created the Lotterycodex calculator to make everything much simpler and faster.

For simplicity, I have divided EuroMillions patterns into three groups.

Best Group | Middle Group | Worst Group |

Patterns #1, #2 | Patterns #3 to #28 | Patterns #29 to #56 |

Two patterns | 26 patterns | 28 patterns |

As you notice, there are only two best patterns out of 56 patterns in EuroMillions 5/50 game.

For those of you who want to delve deeper into the nitty-gritty aspect of calculation, I don’t hide the formula. I discuss how these patterns are obtained in detail, so I invite you to check the free guide.

The table above is very straightforward. If you want to win the EuroMillions, then focus on patterns #1 and #2. And forget about the rest of the patterns.

The problem, almost 90% of the lotto players, do not know the worst combinations that will put their money down the drain. For example, many people pick their combinations that belong to the worst group.

There are millions of these worst combinations in EuroMillions. How do you know your combinations are not one of these worst types?

## How To Win The EuroMillions Game

To play the EuroMillions with the best shot possible, pick your numbers based on pattern #1 or #2. Please check the free guide and discover how Lotterycodex Patterns work for EuroMillions and other lottery games.

It’s not easy to win the EuroMillions. But you can do something to make sure your bet is a good one. With lots of superstitions going around the lottery today, a lot of EuroMillions players are doing it all wrong. Don’t be one of them. Be ahead of them. Please read my post on how to win the lottery mathematically.

If you hate math, then you can use the Lotterycodex calculator to avoid manual calculation. The calculator is a superior type of lotto number generator that is based on combinatorics and probability principle.

But remember, the lottery is just entertainment. Please understand that lottery addiction can affect your life negatively in many ways. You have to play with the proper attitude and with a lottery game plan. Please play the lottery responsibly.,

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

Remember that in the list of the odd-even patterns above, we included the probability value. 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.

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.

## EuroMillions Syndicate Winners

There are several notable EuroMillions syndicate wins throughout the history of the game:

- A family syndicate from County Dublin claimed the biggest ever lottery prize won in Ireland when they won €175 milion on Tuesday 19th February 2019.
- On Friday 1st July 2016, a syndicate of Dublin bus drivers won a EuroMillions jackpot worth €23.8 million. Each of the 22 members of the group received just over €1 million and even arrived by bus to pick up their cheques!
- On Friday 6th November 2009, a syndicate of seven office workers in Merseyside won a whopping £45.5 million when their entry was one of two British tickets that split a jackpot of £91.1 million. Each member received £6.5 million.

## January 2012 – Change to Jackpot Cap

On 12th January 2012, the EuroMillions jackpot cap was frozen at €190 million. Previous rules set in 2009 stated that each time the jackpot cap was reached, it would be increased by €5 million. The last cap increase had taken place in July 2011, when Scottish couple Colin and Chris Weir won a capped €185 million (£161.6 million) jackpot – the largest lottery prize ever won in the UK at the time.

A second rule was changed alongside the jackpot cap; the top prize could remain at its maximum size for two draws, instead of one draw, before being rolled down to the next prize tier.

### Changes Summary

- Jackpot cap increase rule scrapped; jackpot cap frozen at €190 million
- Jackpot roll-down deadline increased from one draw after reaching cap to two draws after reaching cap

## September 2016 – EuroMillions Overhaul

September 2016 saw sweeping changes made to the EuroMillions format, including the introduction of new supplementary games in six countries and a €2 million increase to the minimum jackpot. The price of entry was increased as follows:

Austria | €2.00 | €2.20 |

Belgium | €2.00 | €2.50 |

Ireland | €2.00 | €2.50 |

Luxembourg | €2.00 | €2.50 |

Portugal | €2.00 | €2.50 |

Spain | €2.00 | €2.50 |

Switzerland | CHF3.00 | CHF3.50 |

UK | £2.00 | £2.50 |

The price change covered the cost of new raffles and supplementary games implemented across Europe. With the new games came the introduction of a Europe-wide raffle event, the European Millionaire Maker. The first European Millionaire Maker raffle took place on Friday 28th October 2016, with 25 winning codes selected.

Another big change was the introduction to the game of a 12th Lucky Star; the odds of winning in each prize tier changed as a result:

Match 5 + 2 Stars | 1 in 116,531,800 | 1 in 139,838,160 |

Match 5 + 1 Star | 1 in 6,473,989 | 1 in 6,991,908 |

Match 5 | 1 in 3,236,995 | 1 in 3,107,515 |

Match 4 + 1 Star | 1 in 28,774 | 1 in 31,076 |

Match 3 + 2 Stars | 1 in 11,771 | 1 in 14,126 |

Match 4 | 1 in 14,387 | 1 in 13,812 |

Match 2 + 1 Stars | 1 in 46 | 1 in 50 |

Match 2 | 1 in 23 | 1 in 22 |

The overall odds of winning a prize remained at 1 in 13. |

The UK’s popular ‘Mega Friday’ promotional draw — which saw multiple £1 million raffle prizes and luxury non-cash prizes awarded on the last Friday of each month – also saw a major change. The event was expanded to offer prizes in two consecutive draws and was renamed ‘Mega Week’.

All changes came into effect as of Saturday 24th September 2016, with the very first Mega Week beginning on Tuesday 27th September. Ten raffle prizes of £1 million plus a 100-day round-the-world trip were given out, and a special €130 million Superdraw took place on Friday 30th September. Mega Week ran for nine months, with the last Mega Week draws taking place on Tuesday 25th and Friday 28th June 2017.
