Yes, 150 is the Sum with marginally the highest group count at 165,772. If odds were offered by the Lottery opreator for a winning number falling within a sums grouping then the prize paid would be adjusted to the probability less the house margin. This in fact is done with the New York Pick 3 as an add-on game - see my post Sums now paid on in New York Pick 3

For each combination in the 150 Sums group the probability of being selected is the same as 1 2 3 4 5 6 which is the single Combination in Sum Group 21. ie 1 in 14,000,000. There are three other Sum Groups 22, 278 and 279 with single combinations and the same probability applies there. Introducing a constraint that has no bearing in the random selection process where all are equally likely does not increase your chances of success.



 


Lotto Draws have no relationship to one another; the integers serve just as identifiers. Any prediction calculation on one history of draws for a same type game is just as irrelevant as another.
