The Odd-Even Patterns Based On The Actual EuroMillions Results

Remember that in the list of the odd-even patterns above, we also included the probability. 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.

Expected Frequency(3-odd-2-even) 
= 0.3256621797655230 x 1,276 = 415.544941381
or 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 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.

Why Prizes Differ Between Currencies

The Euro is the base currency for EuroMillions as it is used by seven of the nine participating countries. When a jackpot is won in the UK the equivalent figure in pounds is paid out, based on the exchange rate on the day of the draw.

For non-jackpot prizes, the amount you receive in the UK is not worked out purely on the basis of the exchange rate. Instead, a formula is in place to take into account each country’s contribution to the game.

Each country that participates in EuroMillions contributes €1.10 into the Common Prize Fund, which is used to pay out prizes to all winners. Camelot’s contribution to the Common Prize Fund is the 50% of £1.74 from every EuroMillions ticket sold.

If, using the exchange rates on the day of a draw, Camelot’s contribution to the Common Prize Fund works out at less than €1.10, prizes paid out to UK players will be reduced to compensate for the shortfall. If, on the other hand, Camelot’s contribution amounts to more than €1.10, UK winners will receive comparatively bigger prizes than winners in other countries.

To put it simply, if £1.74 is worth less than €2.20, UK winners will receive smaller prizes than those in other countries. If £1.74 is worth more than €2.20, UK players will receive more. These rules ensure that prizes are always in line with how much each participating country contributes to the Common Prize Fund.

Odds Of Winning El Gordo

The odds of winning El Gordo, Spain’s most popular lottery are much better than with any other lottery. The whole country is obsessed with El Gordo, and they stand in queues and go online to buy their tickets. The odds aren’t high though for just one person winning this particular lotto as there are literally scores of big prizes to be given out. Literally, thousands of people stand the chance to win some sort of prize with their winning tickets. Many people even buy a lot of tickets, all with the same numbers, so as to multiply their good fortune.

Predicting the Outcome of the EuroMillions Draw

You have to understand that probability theory is simply a reliable guide.  Naturally, the expected frequency and the actual frequency will not always match exactly.

You use probability to predict the future outcome of the game to guide you on how to play your game.

For example, if we want to know in advance the outcome of EuroMillions after 2000 draws, we use the same formula for expected frequency:

If P(pt) = is the probability of pattern pt,


P(pt) x 2000 draws = the number of times this pattern is estimated to occur in 2000 draws.

If we are to predict the outcome of all the odd-even patterns, we will come up with the following prediction table below:

Pattern Probability Estimated Occurrence in 2000 draws
3-odd-2-even 0.3256621797655230 651 times
2-odd-3-even 0.3256621797655230 651 times
4-odd-1-even 0.1492618323925310 299 times
4-even-1-odd 0.1492618323925310 299 times
All-odd 0.0250759878419453 50 times
All-even 0.0250759878419453 50 times

As a smart EuroMillions player, you don’t want to waste your money on patterns with low probability. That is the power of probability calculation as we apply it in EuroMillions.

As a lotto player, you want to win the jackpot. Therefore, you should stick with either 3-odd-2-even or 2-odd-3-even and forget about the rest of the patterns.

You get the same idea when it comes to low-high patterns.  You don’t want to pick a combination whose composition is purely low numbers or strictly high numbers.

However, EuroMillions is not only about low-high or odd-even patterns.

We discuss low-high and odd-even patterns to show that the lottery can be predicted to an extent.  But the low-high and odd-even patterns don’t provide the whole picture of the EuroMillions game.

You must understand the EuroMillions game as a whole if you want to win the game.  For you to achieve that, you have to understand intricate combinatorial patterns, which is the real key to EuroMillions’ success.

Let’s proceed to discuss what advanced patterns can do to level up your lotto playing strategy.

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.  The field of statistics may help an advanced lotto player (a little bit), but as far as identifying the best combinatorial patterns in a lotto game is concerned, statistical analysis will not provide precise and accurate results.

So if statistical analysis will not provide the best clue, what will?

Two branches of mathematics can be instrumental to your lottery success.  They are combinatorics (or combinatorial math) and probability theory.   These two mathematical tools will help predict the outcome of the EuroMillions game, as you will discover later.

Yes, you can predict the EuroMillions game to an extent.  This prediction is possible because the lottery follows the dictate of probability.

Let me explain everything from the context of combinatorial patterns.

Since the lottery has a finite structure, any question that we ask is a probability problem to solve rather than statistical.

For example, we can ask:

“What is the probability that the next winning numbers will be 1-2-3-4-5?”

To solve the problem mathematically, we can rephrase the question this way:

“What is the probability that the next winning numbers will be three-odds and two-even numbers?”

You see 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 advanced patterns.

Of course, needless to say, if we talk about advanced patterns, we’re talking about lotterycodex patterns.

We will talk about Lotterycodex patterns later.

First, I will tackle the two simplest combinatorial patterns. Then ultimately, I will discuss the advanced Lotterycodex patterns that show the best and the worst combinations in the EuroMillions game.

Let’s start with the odd-even patterns.
