The Euro Millions Lottery requires a player to make 2 choices: (1) Pick 5 numbers out of a set of 50 white balls; and (2) Pick 2 Lucky Stars from a set of 9 balls. If the player picks the same numbers as those that are drawn in the next drawing, the player wins the Jackpot prize.
While everyone says that every combination has an equal chance of winning, Lottery Power Picks and others, believe that certain combinations are more likely to occur than others.
The following Tables summarize the occurances of the Even / Odd Distribution of all Euro Millions combinations.

The EuroMillions white balls are numbered 1 to 50. The player selects 5 of these numbers. The table below shows the probability of selecting even and odd balls.

 There are 9 Lucky Stars, four are even and five are odd.

As shown in Table EM1a, 65.2% of the 5 number combinations are made of either 3 even balls and 2 odd balls, or vice versa. The next most common is 4 even and 1 odd or 1 even and 4 even. 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 2.5% 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.
