The numbers that come out the most in the Euromillions
Luck is very present in lottery draws, and of course in EuroMillions. Each draw has new expectations and diverse results.
For students of EuroMillions statistics, there are some constants that can be seen in the draws held to date:
 Initially the draw was based on the extraction of 5 balls numbered between 1 and 50, and from another secondary drum were extracted 2 balls (stars) between 1 and 9.
 Later in 2011, in a modification of the regulations, it was determined that the number of stars increased from 9 to 11.
 In September 2016, a new ball for the stars was added, remaining definitively and up to date in 12 stars.
Numbers and stars that come out the most
A review of all the draws held over the years, gives us curiosities such as how many times a certain number or stars have come out, and how many times they have left each year.
Thus, we see that the numbers that have most frequently come out are:
Most frequent numbers  
Number  Appearance 
50  140 
44  138 
23  136 
04  133 
19  128 
10  128 
37  128 
38  128 
26  126 
In the same way it happens with the appearances of stars in the raffles held since the beginning of Euromillions.
The numbers referring to the most frequent stars have been: 8, 9 and 2. Although it must be kept in mind that, until May 2011, there were only 9 stars that could be selected. In September 2016 and to date, it was increased to the current 12 stars.
Stars Frequecy 

Star  Appearances 
8  242 
3  239 
9  233 
2  235 
5  225 
Numbers and stars less frequent
The statistics tell us that the numbers often have less presence in the drawings are 11, 22, 33, 34 and 46, while, we take a look to the star balls, we see that the less often are the 4 and the 5.
These numbers, both for the main numbers and for those relating to stars, are often referred to as “cold numbers“.
Combination of Most Selected Numbers and Stars
In the draws that have been held to date, there is a series of numbers and stars that have been chosen more often than others. Superstition? Coincidence ? the truth is that these have been the most requested:
Since May 2004  Since September 2016  
Number  Stars  Numbers  Stars 
50  8  17  3 
44  3  20  2 
23  23  
4  44  
17  48 
Numbers and stars less selected in Euromillions
Same as in the In the previous case of the numbers and stars most often selected, it is also useful to know the less frequent pairings in order to define a strategy.
Since May 2004  Since September 2016  
Number  Stars  Numbers  Stars 
2  6  18  7 
33  4  33  10 
41  34  
46  40  
47  47 
Most common pairs of numbers and stars in EuroMillions
There are pairs of numbers that come together frequently, it has been calculated that these pairs are the following:
Pairs of main numbers  Pairs of awarded stars  
Numbers  Frequency  Stars  Frequency  
17  27  9 occasions  1  12  9 occasions 
17  44  8 occasions  2  9  8 occasions 
4  31  7 occasions  2  8  7 occasions 
17  23  7 occasions  2  12  7 occasions 
17  28  7 occasions  2  6  7 occasions 
Consecutive numbers and stars more frequent
Statistics also show us the curiosity of series of consecutive numbers that sometimes come out in the winning combinations of EuroMillions draws.
Some of these combinations of consecutive number pairs are:
Pairs of consecutive numbers  Pairs of consecutive stars  
Numbers  Frequency  Stars  Frequencies  
43  44  7 occasions  4  5  7 occasions 
40  41  5 occasions  2  3  5 occasions 
20  21  4 occasions  3  4  4 occasions 
28  29  4 occasions  11  12  4 occasions 
29  30  4 occasions  6  7  3 occasions 
Three of a kind that repeat the most
As happens with combinations of 2 numbers that tend to be combined at times, there is also the circumstance that the same happens with a combination of three main numbers
Let’s see a few trios of numbers that usually coincide in raffles
Trios of main numbers  
Numbers  Frequency  
6  48  50  5 occasions 
10  19  23  5 occasions 
1  10  48  4 occasions 
1  12  48  4 occasions 
1  16  48  4 occasions 
Consecutive three of a kind that repeat the most
It is not very frequent, but sometimes there have been winning combinations of EuroMillions, which contained trios of consecutive numbers.
Let’s see below a sample of these trios that have taken place in the draws held since September 2016
Trios of main numbers  
Numbers  Frequency  
12  13  14  2 occasions 
16  17  18  2 occasions 
18  19  20  2 occasions 
19  20  21  2 occasions 
22  23  24  2 sometimes 
As we can see, often they occur interchangeably in these combinations triplets of consecutive numbers between the numbers called“low numbers”1 to 25, which usually tend to occur when an election system of numbers based on mathematical combinations used personal dates or events, and “high numbers” (from 26 to 49).
