Common Mega Millions Numbers

Despite each ball having the same odds as any other as being picked, its quite often that some numbers are picked more frequently than others. Some players choose to refer to these numbers as ‘hot’ due to the regularity that they are chosen, and those hot and most common Mega Millions numbers can be found below.

This first table shows the top four numbers that have been selected the most in the last 365 days, along with the most common Mega ball. The frequency column shows how many times that number has been selected in this time frame, whilst the final column shows you how many days ago that was. These stats are updated every single day, so don’t be surprised if you see a certain number disappear that used to be the hottest number in the last year.

These stats show the most common Mega Millions numbers and Mega balls since the games first draw in 1996. There have been many changes to the size of the ball pool since the first draw, so some of the higher numbers may be missing just from the fact they have been included in fewer draws than the smaller numbers.
