Combinatorial Patterns in EuroMillions
Let me describe a mathematical method that will catapult you to Euro Million’s success. Deep within the finite sets of EuroMillions numbers are combinatorial patterns that should tell you the best combinations to play and the worst ones to avoid.
The image above describes the complete randomness of a lottery game. It shows that the lotteries are made up of independent random draws that, when put together with time, exhibit a mathematically deterministic behavior given the law of large numbers. See The Visual Analysis of a True Random Lottery with Deterministic Outcome
Let me clarify that we don’t need statistics to determine the best combinations in a lottery game. Statistics is not the right tool to analyze a lottery game.
So if statistical analysis will not provide the best clue, what will?
Well, since the lottery has a finite set structure, any question that we ask is a combinatorial and probability problem to solve rather than statistical.
So instead of statistics, we need the concept of combinatorics and probability theory. These two mathematical tools will help predict the general outcome of the EuroMillions game from the perspective of the law of large numbers.
This prediction is possible because a truly random lottery follows the dictate of probability.
Again, we can explain this better from the context of combinatorial patterns.
For example, we can ask:
“What is the probability that the next winning numbers will be 1-2-3-4-5?”
To solve this question combinatorially, we can rephrase the question this way:
“What is the probability that the next winning numbers will be three-odds and two-even numbers?”
Can you see it? Composition matters.
And the composition of a combination is best described using a combinatorial pattern. You can look at combinatorial patterns in many different ways. There are simple patterns and there are advanced patterns.
We will talk about advanced patterns later (you don’t want to miss this section).
Let’s discuss the simple ones first.
The Odds of Winning The EuroMillions
The National Lottery EuroMillions game is a 5/50 lottery format. So the rule is to pick five numbers from 1 to 50. We compute the total combinations by using the Combination formula.
So there are 2 million possible ways to combine five numbers in EuroMillions. However, to win the jackpot, you are required to match the extra two lucky stars so that the actual odds become 1 to 139.8 million.
If you think about your odds, you have a better chance of becoming the next Prime Minister of the U.K. In short; it is tough to win in the EuroMillions.
In perspective, on the average, you have 139.8 million attempts to win the jackpot. If you play 100 tickets every week, then you have 1.4 million weeks or 27,000 years to hit the jackpot.
Twenty-seven thousand years is such a long time. You’ve got to be very lucky to win.
The EuroMillions lottery is a random game. You cannot predict the next winning numbers.
So, if superstitions, hot numbers, lucky numbers, quick pick, and a random selection will not help, what will?
Mathematics remains the only tool.
How To Win The EuroMillions Game
Remember, choose the best ratio of success to failure when you play Euro Millions.
To play the EuroMillions with the best shot possible, pick your numbers based on pattern #1 or #2. Please check the free guide and discover how combinatorial patterns work for EuroMillions and other lottery games.
It’s not easy to win the EuroMillions. But you can do something to make sure your bet is a good one. With lots of superstitions going around the lottery today, a lot of EuroMillions players are doing it all wrong. Don’t be one of them. Be ahead of them. Please read my post on how to win the lottery mathematically.
If you hate math, then you can use a Lottery calculator to avoid manual calculation. But not all calculators are created equally. You have to use a calculator that puts combinatorics and probability theory together in one system.
But remember, the lottery is just entertainment. Please understand that lottery addiction can affect your life negatively in many ways. You have to play with the proper attitude and with a lottery game plan. Save money for your entertainment and please play the lottery responsibly.

Different types of lotto bonuses and other promotions
What is a Deposit bonus?The lotto deposit bonus is commonly seen in welcome offers for new customers. When using a deposit bonus on Multilotto, your deposit will be multiplied with a certain percentage up to a certain amount. For example, if you deposit €10 using a 100% deposit bonus you will be given an extra €10, leaving you with a total of €20 to use on any of the lotteries offered on Multilotto.
What are free lotto bets?
A free bet is a promotion that lets you play one line on a lottery of your choosing, with the possibility to win prizes including the Jackpot, for free. Using a free bet is identical to purchasing a line using your own lotto balance, thus no differences in the outcome of a draw nor on the payout.
What is money back?The money back bonus is a reward that allows you play a risk free lotto game up to a certain amount. This means that you are guaranteed to get your money back from that specific order in case the draw doesn’t generate you a win. The guaranteed sum will automatically be credited to your Multilotto account once the outcome of the draw is finalized.
What does discount mean?
A discount means change in pricing of the lotteries that gives you the possibility to buy lines for a lottery draw at a discounted price. Discounts may vary between 50-70% of the standard line price.
What is a trial subscription?
A trial subscription is a promotion which gives you the chance to play your lotto numbers on a subscription, with your lines automatically renewed after each draw at a lower price per month
Bonus Balance Explanation
In your active Deposit Bonus you will see two balances.
> The money you deposited to activate the bonus, this will be used first when you play. If the bonus expires, this money will be converted to real money.
> The extra money you receive when making a deposit using a specific bonus, or the money won by free tickets/free spins, or given by a money back bonus after a lost bet. Once you complete the bonus turnover requirements it will be converted to real money. If the bonus expires, your bonus money will be cleared.
There will be three amounts showing in your account balance:
Real Money Balance
> Your unrestricted fund, you can use it to either play with or withdraw it at anytime.
> Your total contributed money and bonus money of all activated bonuses available for use on lotto games.
> Your total contributed money and bonus money of all activated bonuses available for use on casino games.
For example, if you deposit €10 using a 100% deposit bonus on lotto games, you will be given an extra €10 called Bonus Money, i.e. a total of €20 will be credited to your account. The Bonus Money will be distributed like this: Contributed Money(Lotto)= €10, Bonus Money(Lotto)=€10. This money can be used on any lotteries offered at Multilotto.
The Odd-Even Patterns Based On The Actual EuroMillions Results
Remember that in the list of the odd-even patterns above, we included the probability value. We use the probability value to determine how likely an event will happen in a given period.
In this case, we want to know the frequency of each odd-even pattern. To take things up a notch, we will compare our calculation against the actual results of the EuroMillions.
There are 1,276 draws in EuroMillions from April 16, 2004, to February 4, 2020. Therefore, we calculate the expected frequency by multiplying the probability by 1,276 draws.
Expected Frequency = Probability X 1,276
In the case of 3-odd-2-even with the probability of 0.3256621797655230, the expected frequency will be 416.
Doing similar computation with the rest of the odd-even patterns, we will come up with a completed comparison table below with accompanying graph:
As you see from the graph above, you should notice the agreement between probability prediction and the actual results of the EuroMillions game. The agreement proves that the EuroMillions game follows the dictate of the probability principle.
- 3-odd-2-even is expected to appear 416 times – it occurred 461 times in the real draw.
- 4-odd-1-even is projected to appear 190 times – it appeared in 184 times in the actual draw.
- 0-odd-5-even is supposed to be drawn 32 times – it was drawn 31 times in the real draw.
Thanks to the power of probability. And you don’t need statistical analysis of the historical results to do such high-accuracy and high-precision prediction.
