Best way to implement a database of lottery numbers?

I’m trying to build an app involving my local lottery system and would need to store the numbers. Each draw has the following:

  • Date
  • Draw Number
  • Winning Numbers (6 of them)
  • Additional Winning Number

I would like to be able to make the following information out of these numbers, such as:

  • Frequency of each number appearing in general
  • Frequency of each number appearing in the standard 6 winning numbers
  • Frequency of each number appearing as an additional winning number
  • Retrieve a number and the associated dates for which the number appeared
  • And of course, simply display the numbers given a date and/or draw number

My issue is regarding the winning numbers and the additional winning number. I can think of the following: – Storing the 6 winning numbers as a list or similar (DynamoDB), and the additional number separately – Storing each number separately: winning1, winning2, etc. additional_number

I’m open to suggestions and am not fixed on using a particular database yet, hope to hear your thoughts and expertise on this. I’m thinking that at the end of the day I will need additional tables to keep track of the frequency of each number etc. separately.
