The Best Ways to Get the Latest Lottery Results – Everything You Need to Know

Are you interested in playing one, or more, of the many lottery games accessible worldwide? If so, do you know where to find the results of the lotto draw? 

 

If not, it could end up being quite frustrating, playing the lottery, and not knowing what the outcomes are and whether you have won anything or not. 

 

Playing country- and region-specific lottery games

 

However, before we look at the specifics of the best ways to get the latest lottery results, it is critical to be aware of the following points. Although all of the lottery games are location-based (country of the geographic region), it does not matter which country you reside in; you can take a ticket for any lottery game across the globe.

 

For instance, should you live in the European Union, and you fancy your chances of winning the US Powerball jackpot, you can buy one or more tickets for the next draw. It doesn't matter where in the world you live in. 

 

Another caveat relevant to this context is that it is essential to be mindful of your residential country’s gambling laws. 



Where to find the results for the latest lottery draws

 

Once you have decided which lottery tickets to buy, the next step is to wait for the latest draw to determine whether your chosen numbers are successful or not. Therefore, the question that begs is, where do you find the latest results? 

The succinct answer to this question is that there are two options or places where you can find the results for most of the lottery draws: on live television and by joining Multilotto. 

Let’s expand on this answer by providing an in-depth discussion about these two options.

 

1. On LIVE television 

 

Most of the world’s lotteries offer a live television broadcast of each draw. These draws usually take place in the evening, local time. For example, the US Powerball lottery drawings are held every Wednesday and Saturday at 10:59 pm Eastern Time (ET).  

 

Note: At this point in this discussion, it’s essential to be mindful that the draw date and time might differ from what is stated below. The fundamental reason for this is that the local time zones differ from CET (Central European Time): the time zone of the times listed below.

 

Thus, if you are a European resident and have taken a US Powerball ticket, to watch the live draw, you’ll have to be up at 4:59 am because CET is 6 hours ahead of ET. 

 

The best place to find the live television draw dates and times is to either look at your local television guide or use Google or any other search engine to find the draw information. Finally, the brand website often offers a live stream of the draw for participants who do not have access to the relevant local television stations.

 

2. The Multilotto Website

 

The best option is to sign up with the Multilotto online platform, buy your lines through them, and access the lotto draw’s results as soon as the draw has finished. 

There are many benefits to signing up with the Multilotto website. As described above, the primary advantage is that, once you have joined the online lottery platform, you can play any of the almost 100 lottery games that Multilotto offers.

 

Note: Multilotto is not a lottery operator. It is an online platform that allows pundits to bet on the outcome of a particular lottery online. 

 

The second most important benefit to creating an account on the Multilotto platform is that you get access to all the results for each lottery draw and a comprehensive historical record of all past lottery results and payouts.

In summary, Multilotto offers resourceful information on the following lottery draws by country or region: 

 

  • Europe: 53 lotteries
  • USA: 8 lotteries
  • Canada: 5 lotteries
  • South Africa: 8 lotteries
  • Africa: 8 lotteries
  • Oceania: 3 lotteries
  • Asia: 4 lotteries

 

This historical record is a useful tool when determining which numbers to play for the next draw.  

Let’s consider the following scenario as a description of how to use Multilotto’s lotto results page. If you have not determined which lottery ticket to take and need help deciding, the first thing to do is work out which lotto game will offer you the best odds of winning the jackpot.  

For more information about the best odds of winning a jackpot, please check Which Lottery Has the Best Chance of Winning?

 

The first thing to consider is the number of balls in the lottery. Players have a greater chance of winning a 42-ball lottery jackpot than a 50-ball lottery jackpot. Without going into too much detail, the odds calculation is as follows:

 

50-ball jackpot selecting 5 numbers

 

n! / r! (n-r)! = 50! / 5! x 45! = 2 118 760.  Therefore, the odds of winning the 50-ball lottery jackpot are 1 in 2 118 760. 

 

42-ball jackpot selecting 5 numbers

 

n! / r! (n-r)! = 42! / 5! x 37! = 850 668.  Therefore, the odds of winning this jackpot are 1 in 850 668. 

The next step is to look at which winning numbers are selected the most often and chosen the least often. It is a good idea to consider selecting numbers above 31. 

 

Succinctly stated, most people select numbers based on dates that are meaningful, including birthdays and anniversaries. While selecting numbers above 31 won't increase your odds of winning any prizes, it will reduce the number of people you will have to share the prize money with. 

For the purposes of this article, let's assume that you have decided to play the New York Lotto. You've calculated the odds of winning, and they look good. The next step is to look at the number selections for the last five draws to determine which numbers to select. 

 

Here is a screenshot of the last five draws, as found on the Multilotto site. Let's take New York Lotto as an example.

While predictive analytics are usually used to determine the winning numbers most and least selected, and other forecast statistics, let’s look at these numbers to describe the research process. Here is a list of numbers with the number of times they have been selected: 

8 – 2, 10 – 2, 17 – 1, 19 – 3, 32 – 1, 34 – 1, 35 – 1, 36 – 1, and so on. 

 

Because we are actually only interested in numbers above 31, let’s focus on these statistics: 

32 – 1, 34 – 1, 35 – 1, 36 – 1, 42 – 2, 44 – 1, 47 – 2, 50 – 1, 54 – 1, 55 – 2, 56 – 1, 58 – 1

 

Before selecting your numbers, it’s also vital to note that these five number sets start with a number below 20. Therefore, it’s worth factoring this into your choice. 

Numbers 8 and 10 have been used twice each, so the choice is entirely up to you.  Secondly, the numbers above 31 that have been used twice are 42, 47, and 55.

 

Another interesting point to note is that the number 19 has been used three times, the most a single number has been selected for the last five draws. Thus, it is a good idea to add this number to your set of numbers. 

You need five numbers. Therefore, based on this statistical analysis of the last five winning number selections, you have a choice of one of the two selections: 

 

A = {8, 19, 42, 47, 55}

B = {10, 19, 42, 47, 55}

 

The odds of these two sets being the winning selection of numbers is 1 in 2. Or, there is a 50% probability of one of these sets winning the jackpot.  Therefore, instead of deciding between these two groups, the best thing to do is take two lotto tickets, one with each number grouping.

This lottery results page also directly links to the quick-buying function, where you can select five lines for any lottery for a specified number of draws or one month or twelve months. The winning odds and payouts are also available with one mouse click (the green button on the web page). Finally, the drill-down function on this page also provides a notification of the next draw date.
