The Mega Millions estimated jackpot is at $32 million, and it’s climbing as of the latest drawing. The month of September had been interesting to see the value of the jackpot go up.
With September coming to an end, we will review the hottest and coldest numbers so far. We will also provide a better understanding and interpretation of the numbers for players that like to use them.
In September, there were five “hot” numbers, which turned up with a greater frequency. Those numbers were:
“15” had the most occurrences, as the drawing frequency was at 37.50 percent. The number frequency is at 7.50 percent.
Numbers 25, 36, 38, and 48 all had a drawing frequency of 25 percent. They also all have a number frequency of 5 percent.
There are plenty of cold numbers, but the following five were the coldest September numbers, as they were not drawn at all (thus, a frequency of 0):
The results for the Mega Millions for 9/25/20 are the following:
White Ball: 20-36-37-48-67
Mega Ball: 16
As you can see for close to the end of the month, a few popular numbers have been drawn. Numbers 36 and 48 both appeared on this date.
When looking at these numbers, it is best to use them as an informative piece rather than solely using those numbers to play the Mega Millions. You should still plan to diversify your number options, not just pick the hottest ones or avoid the cold ones altogether.
The cold numbers are just as likely to be drawn as the hot ones. Out of all the numbers drawn in September, the difference in frequency of occurrence is not dramatic enough to expect regular replication, but the trend is still interesting to follow.
When you do play the Mega Millions and decide to use a hot number or two, it is best to keep an eye on your bankroll. Having a hot number selected as part of your choices might incline you to play more often than you otherwise would.
Please remember you should only gamble that which you can afford to lose. Playing these hot numbers could lead you to riches, because you never know what numbers will be selected, but you still need to approach the game responsibly.
