Hot Lotto
Sorted Bucket Combination Distribution

Hot Lotto requires a player to make 2 choices: (1) Pick 5 numbers out of a set of 39 white balls; and (2) Pick 1 Hot Ball from a set of 19 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 Table summarize the occurances of the Lottery Ball Bucket Distribution of all Hot Lotto combinations for the white balls.

These are sorted from highest to lowest concentration and probability.


The Hot Lotto white balls are numbered 1 to 39. The player selects 5 of these numbers. The table below shows the probability of each of the balls falling within a decimal range: 0-9; 10-19; 20-29; and 30-39 ranging from highest to lowest combinations.
