Hot Lotto
Hi-Low 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 Hi-Low Distribution of all Hot Lotto combinations for the white balls.


The MegaMillions white balls are numbered 1 to 39. The player selects 5 of these numbers. The table below shows the number of possible combinations for each high-low distribution, meaning: first ball = 1, last ball=5, 6, ... 39.
