Statistics Blog 1

All of us have thought about winning the lottery. Despite the odds, it’s not unusual to find your mind drifting to the possibility of winning a life-changing amount of money.

Oz Lotto was the first national lottery in Australia, introduced in 1994. As it is played every Tuesday night, Oz Lotto statistics knowledge is essential if you want to play smart. Though there isn’t a way to predict the numbers that will be drawn every week, you can be knowledgeable enough to avoid simple miscalculations with the use of Oz Lotto winning number statistics

Oz Lotto hot numbers

Hot numbers are those that have been drawn most frequently over a given time. Below are the most frequently drawn numbers of 2021:

14, 17, 32, 34, 36, 42, 45

Oz Lotto cold numbers

Most and least profitable numbers of 2021

Some numbers are statistically more likely to be profitable than others when they’re used in a winning ticket. This is due to the fact that some numbers tend to be picked more than others. When a less popular number is the winning number, it means that the Oz Lotto share prize is distributed among fewer people, making them more profitable than those that are more popular. Below is a list of numbers that resulted in the largest and smallest dividends of 2021:

Most profitable

4, 19, 25, 29, 32, 36, 38

Least profitable

6, 10, 11, 34, 41, 43, 45

How yearly statistics are calculated

Oz Lotto Australia number statistics for any given year are calculated as an average of that year. The data of a full lottery year is taken, and the mean result is produced to determine which numbers are most popular and which resulted in the largest dividends. Knowing these numbers doesn’t mean that you will necessarily have greater odds to win the next lottery, but it is essential to know everything you can so that you can play the game responsibly. 

How to use Oz Lotto statistics as a guide

There isn’t an easy hack to winning the lottery — but you can use Oz Lotto number statistics as a guide for your next entry in Oz Lotto. 

It’s always important to properly understand the odds of winning the Oz Lotto Division 1 prize. Oz Lotto is played with nine balls that are drawn from a pool of forty-five. The first seven are the winning numbers, and the remaining two are supplementary numbers for other prize pools. If you purchase one ticket, you have a 1:45379620 chance of winning. If you purchase a second ticket and pick new numbers, you would have a 2:45379620 chance of winning. 

Patience is key. To give yourself the best shot at winning, you can hold off buying a ticket every week and purchase several at once on a given week so that your range of numbers can be carefully picked without the inconvenience of the weekly Oz Lotto reset. 

Oz Lotto also offers a few alternate and more expensive options for increasing your odds:

  • QuickPick ticket — Numbers are chosen randomly for you.
  • System ticket — An automated number choosing system that requires you to input numbers based on your ticket. A ‘Pick 6’ ticket allows you to choose six numbers and then our site will give you thirty-nine games of seven numbers each based on your choice.
  • Syndicate ticket — Allows you to purchase tickets as a group and share the possible winnings.
  • Super Combo ticket — Gives you the option to choose how many numbers you would like to play, instead of the standard seven.

It is crucial to remember that every Oz Lotto draw is essentially a reset. As they are independent of each other, there is no guarantee that any number that has been drawn before will be drawn in the next one. The lottery is a game of low odds. Try to pick numbers that are not bunched together, and try to stay away from picking numbers just for the sake of it, such as numbers that begin or end with the same number. 

It’s a good idea to mix your picks, choosing across a range of different numbers. If you want to share the experience and odds with friends, family, or co-workers, you can always purchase tickets together. Always keep in mind that your chosen numbers are just as likely to be picked this time as they are the next time. But with that said, even the most knowledgeable statistician still has the same chance as you once you know the basic principles of Oz Lotto statistics. Chance is what makes this experience fun. 

Once you understand the system, you can confidently choose numbers backed by the relevant statistical overviews from 2021 — always remember to regularly check the results. If you feel like you are finally ready to test your skills and play the lottery, be sure to visit the Oz Lotto site or Oz Lotteries app to get started. Try your luck and enjoy!
