Many players of TattsLotto still don’t get it. Rather than relying on a scientific approach, many players stick to the century-old myth of using lucky numbers, hot and cold numbers, etc., etc. But mathematically speaking, those methods don’t work in the Lottery.

Many are wasting their money because they keep on playing the wrong number patterns and consistently use lotto strategies that don’t work.

If you are not familiar with the number patterns in the lottery, I recommend reading my article where I describe The Mathematical Way To Play The Lottery. Please do it first before you proceed below.

## The Odds Of Winning The Australian TattsLotto 6/45

The Australian TattsLotto game is a 6/45 lottery format, so the rule is to pick six numbers from 1 to 45. Based on this rule, the number of ways to match six combinations is exactly 8,145,060, so the chance is 1 in 8 million.

Even though the TattsLotto’s two additional balls are designed to give additional opportunity to win, still, the odds of winning is difficult like any other lottery systems.

So in perspective, you have a better chance of becoming one of the honorable representatives in the Australian Parliament than winning the TattsLotto.

Fortunately, we can use Mathematics to improve your odds. Let’s talk about how to improve your chances at Tattslotto starting with the odd-even patterns.

## Odd-Even Patterns In Australian TattsLotto 6/45

Play the wrong odd-even pattern in Tattslotto, and you will never win the jackpot no matter how patient or persistent you are in play.

The table below shows the complete odd-even patterns for TattsLotto with their corresponding probability:

Pattern | Favorable Combinations | Probability |
---|---|---|

3-odd-3-even | 2727340 | 0.33484590659860100 |

4-odd-2-even | 2045505 | 0.25113442994895100 |

2-odd-4-even | 1850695 | 0.22721686519190800 |

5-odd-1-even | 740278 | 0.09088674607676310 |

1-odd-5-even | 605682 | 0.07436188315371530 |

6-odd-0-even | 100947 | 0.01239364719228590 |

6-even-0-odd | 74613 | 0.00916052183777652 |

8,145,060 | 1 |

I divide the odd-even patterns into three groups:

Best Patterns | Good Patterns | Bad Patterns |
---|---|---|

3-odd-3-even | 4-odd-2-even | All-even-numbers |

2-odd-4-even | All-odd-numbers |

Based on the table above, the best odd-even pattern in TattsLotto is the 3-odd-3-even pattern.

Let me prove this using the actual TattsLotto results.

## Odd-Even Patterns From The Actual Results Of The TattsLotto

The table below shows the comparison between estimated frequency and the actual frequency taken from the actual 582 draws of TattsLotto from January 7, 2006, to March 04, 2017.

We compute the Expected frequency using the formula below:

**Expected Frequency = Probability X 582 draws**

In the case of 3-odd-3-even with a probability of 0.33484590659860100, the expected frequency is 195.

Expected frequency (3-odd-3-even) = 0.33484590659860100 x 582 = 194.88031764 or 195

Here is the complete comparison table:

Patterns | Expected frequency in 582 draws | Actual frequency in 582 draws |
---|---|---|

3-odd-3-even | 194.88031764 | 187 |

4-odd-2-even | 146.16023823 | 154 |

2-odd-4-even | 132.240215542 | 143 |

5-odd-1-even | 52.8960862167 | 50 |

1-odd-5-even | 43.2786159955 | 39 |

6-odd-0-even | 7.21310266591 | 5 |

6-even-0-odd | 5.33142370959 | 4 |

582 | 582 |

The table below that if we compare the expected occurrence with the actual results, you will see that values are very close. It proves that TattsLotto behaves in a predictable pattern.

And fortunately, we can use Mathematics to determine the trending pattern. Thanks to Probability.

If we are to predict the outcome of the odd and even patterns for Australian Saturday Lotto in 1000 draws, we will come up with this prediction table below:

Pattern | Probability | Expected Frequency |
---|---|---|

3-odd-3-even | 0.33484590659860100 | 335 |

4-odd-2-even | 0.25113442994895100 | 251 |

2-odd-4-even | 0.22721686519190800 | 227 |

5-odd-1-even | 0.09088674607676310 | 91 |

1-odd-5-even | 0.07436188315371530 | 74 |

6-odd-0-even | 0.01239364719228590 | 12 |

6-even-0-odd | 0.00916052183777652 | 9 |

As a smart player, you don’t want to waste your money on the last three patterns. As an Australian Saturday Lotto player, you may want to put your money on the first three patterns.

You see, being aware of your number patterns is very crucial in your ability to win. That is the basic idea of why we want to use Probability Analysis in TattsLotto.

However, in the lottery, it’s not just odd-even patterns. Looking into all 45 numbers more deeply, we can develop more complex patterns that will help us achieve our goal of winning.

## The Three Winning Patterns In Australian TattsLotto

I have divided Australian Saturday Lotto patterns into three groups.

Group | Patterns | Number of patterns |
---|---|---|

Best patterns | Patterns #1, #2, #3 | 3 |

Fair patterns | Patterns #4 to #88 | 85 |

Bad patterns | Patterns #89 to #210 | 122 |

210 total patterns |

Based on these groups, you now have a good idea that the best way to play TattsLotto is to use patterns #1, #2, and #3. It’s free to access the complete list here.

There are 210 patterns in Australian Saturday Lotto, but let’s take a look at some of them in the table below with the corresponding probability:

Pattern | Probability | Expected occurrence |
---|---|---|

#1 | 0.0298340344 | Once every 33 draws |

#2 | 0.0298340344 | Once every 33 draws |

#3 | 0.0298340344 | Once every 33 draws |

#182 | 0.0002784510 | Once every 3,333 draws |

#183 | 0.0002320425 | Once every 5,000 draws |

#184 | 0.0002062600 | Once every 5,000 draws |

If you want to win the Australian Saturday Lotto, then pick your numbers based on patterns #1, #2, and #3. The problem, perhaps 80 to 90% of the TattsLotto players are not aware of the patterns they are playing.

Often, they fell on number patterns that will only waste their money. For example, the following patterns should be avoided at all cost:

Pattern | Probability | Expected Occurrence |
---|---|---|

#206 | 0.0000073664 | 7x in every 1,000,000 draws |

#207 | 0.0000073664 | 7x in every 1,000,000 draws |

#208 | 0.0000073664 | 7x in every 1,000,000 draws |

#209 | 0.0000066298 | 7x in every 1,000,000 draws |

#210 | 0.0000001228 | Once in every 10,000,000 draws |

If you are playing the Australian Saturday Lotto without knowing the probability of your patterns, you are playing blindly. So with Mathematical strategy, players get two benefits:

1. The player saves money

2. The player increases chances of winning

Let me prove my point by using the actual lottery results.

## Probability Estimation Versus Actual Results Of The TattsLotto

In this section, we will compare the Expected frequency of each pattern against the actual frequency from the actual TattsLotto results. We get the Expected frequency of each pattern by multiplying the Probability by the number of draws.

For example, there are 582 draws in Australian TattsLotto from January 7, 2006, to March 04, 2017.

Therefore we use the following formula:

**Expected Frequency = Probability X 582 draws**

Using the above formula, we will come up with the following comparison table:

Pattern | Probability | Estimated Occurrence in 582 draws | Actual occurrence in 582 draws |
---|---|---|---|

#1 | 0.0298340344 | 17 | 14 |

#2 | 0.0298340344 | 17 | 23 |

#3 | 0.0298340344 | 17 | 18 |

#4 | 0.0265191417 | 15 | 15 |

#5 | 0.0223755258 | 13 | 11 |

… | … | … | … |

#22 | 0.0119336137 | 7 | 9 |

#23 | 0.0119336137 | 7 | 3 |

#24 | 0.0119336137 | 7 | 6 |

#25 | 0.0119336137 | 7 | 4 |

#26 | 0.0119336137 | 7 | 4 |

… | … | … | … |

#206 | 0.0000073664 | 0 | 0 |

#207 | 0.0000073664 | 0 | 0 |

#208 | 0.0000073664 | 0 | 0 |

#209 | 0.0000066298 | 0 | 0 |

#210 | 0.0000001228 | 0 | 0 |

As you see, the expected frequency is very close to the actual frequency. You don’t want to put your money on patterns that will never make you a winner. Instead, you must select the pattern that has the highest probability of occurring.

## How To Play TattsLotto To Win

To have a greater chance of winning the Saturday TattsLotto, I recommend the following strategies:

- Use 3-odd-3-even, 4-odd-2-even, 2-odd-4-even combinations
- Focus on high probability patterns especially patterns #1, #2, #3 (The complete list is freely available at the lottery analysis section)
