Lotto Max requires a player to Pick 7 numbers out of a set of 49 white balls. If the player picks the same numbers as those that are drawn in the next drawing, the player wins the Jackpot prize.
 
The Lotto Max white balls are numbered 1 to 49. The player selects 7 of these numbers. The table below shows the probability of selecting even and odd balls.  
 
As shown in Table LM1, 28.5% of the 7 number combinations consist of 4 even and 3 odd balls, and 29.8% consist of 3 even and 4 odd balls. These two total to 58.3% of the combinations. Then, 31.9% contain either 5 even and 2 odd, or 2 even and 5 odd balls. These four compositions account for 90.2% of all combinations. The rarest numerical combinations are those where the white balls are all even or all odd. In both of these cases, there is only a 1.0% chance of either one occuring. So starting off, try to avoid combinations containing all odd or all even numbers. This may increase your chances of having a winning combination.
