Following my Excel lottery number generator video I have had frequent requests for a Lotto 6/55 version. So here it is.

This spreadsheet demonstrates some fantastic Excel techniques, and as always the file is unprotected so that it can all be investigated.

The following Excel features are used:

- The RAND function is used to generate the random numbers
- The RANK and COUNTIF functions are used to rank the random numbers from 1 to 55 for retrieval of the balls
- The VLOOKUP function is used to retrieve the ball numbers
- Some VBA is used to perform the formula calculations when a button is clicked (Manual calculation has been chosen over automatic for the workbook)

P.G.Mathew Tharakan says

I go through your Lotto 6/55 number generator, please tell me which way to activate the 6 button and the generator button. Thanks

computergaga_blog says

The buttons function due to a Vlookup finding the number on the Calculation sheet.

The button works as it runs a macro that performs calculations on the sheet. Press Alt + F11 to open the Visual Basic Editor and view the code that the button runs.

This is necessary as Automatic Calculations have been switched to Manual Calculations on the sheet. This is done via the Formulas tab on the Ribbon.

chandra says

why the button can not work …???

can’t run the macro”lottery_number_generator.xlsm!lotery_draw.

the macro may not be avaible in this workbook or all macros may disable

computergaga_blog says

Sounds like the macros are disabled. In Excel 2010 a yellow message bar should appear with an Enable Macros button.

Otherwise click the File tab > Options > Trust Center > Macro Security and then the required option to enable them.

Hello, Mr Murray.

What about if there is a requirement for a bonus number.?

How do you go about it.??

Thanks a lot for the help.

Regards,

Richard Lim

computergaga_blog says

For the bonus number we can just add to the 6 numbers on the calculations sheet and then add an extra cell and Vlookup to return the 7th (or bonus) number.

Sterlian Nash says

What about if you already have the ranks for the lottery numbers? How can you generate the lottery? I tried using my state lottery ranking and the numbers will not generate.

computergaga_blog says

The rank is just used to select the balls randomly.

majaliwa says

Gomes Philippe says

Hi,

It’s very interesting…

Can you tell me if it’s possible to make a loterry with only some number presectionned please ?

What kind of code can i do to make this possible ?

Thanks in advance !

Phil

p.s. Sorry for my text…

jigs says

i am deaf,,,please give me 6/55 only

Mont says

Hello Mr Murray. Very elegant and nicely done. My question is how is possible to write every new calculation in different row in table on another sheet?

Thank you and have a nice day!

Muhammed says

For example the Powerball and Mega Million have 5 numbers and 1 number generate separately from each drawing. Generating 6 numbers from each drawing to make up the bonus number will skew the result. What I did was to generate 5/75 and 1/15 for MM and 5/59 and 1/35 for PB from separate drawings in other not to skew the outcome. Please advice.

Anoop says

Hi murray. Am from mauritius,i’ve recently download the video of number genetator. Its fascinating. Hete in my country we play lotto of 6 numbers its quiet hard to find the correct 6 numbers. Is it possible that every time i generate the numbers i get all the possible outcomes? And if it is wright it must generates the past winning numbers. Just want to know if the generator will generate all the possible outcomes which is 38.380.000 ?

computergaga says

Hi Anoop,

I’m sorry this generator does not produce all of the possible outcomes.
