Super Lotto Plus
Even/Odd Combination Distribution

The Super Lotto Plus Lottery requires a player to make 2 choices: (1) Pick 5 numbers out of a set of 47 white balls; and (2) Pick 1 Mega Ball from a set of 27 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 Super Lotto Plus combinations.

The Super Lotto Plus white balls are numbered 1 to 47. The player selects 5 of these numbers. The table below shows the probability of selecting even and odd balls.         There are are 27 Mega Balls, with one more odd ball than even.

As shown in Table SLP-1a, 65.3% 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 these cases, there is only a 2.2% chance of all even balls and a 2.8% chance of all odd balls 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.
