# Calculate Your Odds of Winning the Lottery Mega Millions Powerball

Know how to calculate your odds of winning the lottery including the Florida Lottery. For each lottery game, you can calculate the odds of winning. You can either use a calculator on your laptop or a small handheld calculator to calculate the odds of winning.

The number of winning numbers drawn from total balls is what you need to know. It is important to determine how many balls you have in each group if there is a secondary drawing for the extra ball such as the Powerball red ball or Mega Millions’ gold ball. Are there 49 balls or 39?

It doesn’t matter whether it is the Florida Lottery, Ohio Lottery, Texas Lottery, Pennsylvania Lottery, or NJ Lottery. This strategy gives you the real odds. Florida Lottery is at 6/53. New York Lottery ranks 6/59. The 6/49 ratio of lottery numbers is used by the Ohio Lottery (Massachusetts Lottery), Wisconsin Lottery (Wisconsin Lottery) and the State of Washington Lottery. Illinois Lottery is rated at 6/52.

You can then begin formulating the formulas once you have all of this information and your calculator in front. To win the multimillion-dollar jackpot most of us dream about, you must match five regular balls to one extra.

In the first example, there are 56 balls within the first group and 46 in secondary group. You must match all the balls (5 + 1) to win the Jackpot. However, not in order. Super Lotto Plus at California Lottery is 47/27. The first drawing begins with the big drum spinning. Your chance of matching your number to the first ball is 1:56 เว็บหวย

After the first number is drawn, one ball is removed. You now have a 1/5 chance of matching the numbers drawn to the second ball. A ball is taken off for each number drawn, which reduces the remaining number by one.

Your odds of matching the number on your third ball is now 1/54, based on the total number remaining in the drum. The odds of you correctly matching the fourth number are reduced to 1/53 after the third ball has been removed from your drum.

As you can see, every time a ball is dropped from the drum, the odds of it being released are reduced by 1. It started out with a chance of 1/56. Then, with each new number, it decreases to 1/55/1/54/1/53. And with the fifth number, your odds of correctly matching the fifth winning numbers are 1/52. This is the first part in the formula for calculating your chances of winning the lottery.

Take these five odds to represent the winning numbers (1/56, 1/54, 1/53, 1/52) The fraction with the “1” at the top represents your only chance of correctly matching the drawn number.

You will now need to take your calculator with you and multiply all top numbers (1x1x1x1x1) equal one (1). Next multiply all bottom numbers (56x55x54x53x52). When all the numbers have been entered correctly and multiplied, the sum is 458,377.920. The new fraction is 1/458 377,920. There is 458 million chances to win. You would have a very slim chance of winning this Pick 5/56 Ball Lottery game if your numbers were chosen in the same order as the drawing.

Unfortunately, you don’t have the obligation to pick the numbers exactly as they were drawn. This second step will decrease the odds of you matching these five winning numbers in the correct order. You will multiply the number drawn balls by five (1x2x3x4x5). You can see that 120 is the result of using the calculator.

These odds allow you to select your five matching numbers in any order. To do this, divide 120/417.451,320. This calculation is best done with a calculator. You have a chance of winning the lottery if you play 120/458 377 920. These odds of you winning the Pick 5/56 ball lottery are greater than 3.5million to 1.
