# "One In 1000" Results: March 16/17, 2012

Published:

The winning Mega Millions numbers for March 16 were 28-29-43-51-53, Megaball 7.  No one won the \$200 million dollar jackpot, both in real life and in our simulation.  In the real world, there were seven Match 5+0 winners.

Here's how our 175,000 lines fared:

 MATCH WINNERS TOTAL PRIZES 5+1 0 \$0 5+0 0 \$0 4+1 0 \$0 4+0 13 \$1,950 3+1 9 \$1,350 3+0 602 \$4,214 2+1 196 \$1,960 1+1 1332 \$3,996 0+1 2411 \$4,822 TOTALS 4563 \$18,292

The winning Powerball numbers on St. Patrick's Day were 11-14-49-55-58 and Powerball 30.  The luck of the Irish was not with anyone as there were no winners of the \$60 million jackpot.  However, there was one Match 5+0 winner.

Our numbers came out like this:

 MATCH WINNERS TOTAL PRIZES 5+1 0 \$0 5+0 0 \$0 4+1 0 \$0 4+0 5 \$500 3+1 10 \$1,000 3+0 538 \$3,766 2+1 254 \$1,778 1+1 1661 \$6,644 0+1 3276 \$13,104 TOTALS 5744 \$26,792

For each drawing I play 175,000 lines on paper. As the odds of winning a Mega Millions or Powerball jackpot is approximately 1 in 175 million, this effectively means that my odds of winning are about 1 in 1000.

Hi mediabrat,if you do axept that your odds of winning are about 1 in 1000 than they are about 0,01% which is low,low,low...
I'd like to ask you if you use a reduced(banking pool) set of numbers for your 175 000 virtual lines or all the lottery numbers are used?
In case of reduced set which your main criteria of selection is?
