    And who always wins the fixed jackpots? Liberal infested southern Wisconsin that's who! Milwaukee is literally practically a little California Crazy

      Oh I see, that is what I thought,  I took the bait and you trolled me on purpose.  Maybe you should read my other replies in this topic, instead of bringing crap up from another game I comment on.  Badger 5 and supercash are completely different.  Too bad you california people can't tell the difference.

        Sorry, something smells here; the odds of him winning twice are quadrillions to one.  If he's playing a wheeling system, he can slightly improve his odds... but there's no algorithm that can improve his odds as much as he's intimating.  Time for an investigation...

        "Sorry, something smells here; the odds of him winning twice are quadrillions to one." 

        Are those odds of quadrillions to one an actual calculation of just a figure you made up?

          He already won in the past, just like hundreds or thousands of other players in the almost 24 year history of the game. His odds of winning again are 1 in 1.63 million, just like it is for the hundreds or thousands of other players who won in the past, every time he buys a ticket. Since it's a daily game there's a very good chance he's played it almost every one of the 2340 or so days since his first win. If he only played one combination on each of those days his odds of winning again would be 2340 in 1.63 million, or a bit better than 1 in 700. If he played multiple combinations his odds of winning again would be even better.

          It's been a bit more than 8600 days since the first person won the game, so if they've continued to play 1 ticket for each drawing there's better than a 1 in 200 chance that they would have won again. Assuming most of the people who have won in the last 24 years continued to play it's a virtual certainty that at least one previous winner would have won again.

          He may honestly think he's got an algorithm that worked, but he's just a beneficiary of probability doing exactly what it can be expect to do.

            Quadrillion
            From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

            Quadrillion may mean either of the two numbers (see long and short scales for more detail):

            1,000,000,000,000,000 (one thousand million million; SI prefix peta-) for all short scale countries (U.S.)

            1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 (one million million million million; SI prefix: yotta-) for all long scale countries (U.K.)

            The odds of matching 6 in a 6/39 game are 1:3,262,623
            The odds of matching 6 in a 6/39 game twice are 1:3,262,623 x 3,262,623 or 1:10,644,708,840,129

                The Adamson equation with six variables(?)  to work with sounds like a real mind bender, but it proved him right in his mathematical genius.

                  Those might be the odds against for someone who never won, but the odds for somebody who won a jackpot is 3,262,623 to 1.

                    Those would be the odds for somebody who owns one set of lines on a ticket they shared with somebody else. For all of the normal people who buy a ticket of their own the odds for each play are 1 in 1.63 million.

                      The way he calculates which lines to play is perhaps patentable.

                      If you got a high enough IQ perhaps you can find out the calculation if you compare his 2008 win and the 2015 win.

                        Must not work very often, twice in around eight years for a daily game.  I would say that they

                        have changed the RNG's code at least a couple times between the wins.  The odds are the same

                        each time we play and winning one JP does not increase or decrease your odds of ever winning

                        another.

                        I will consider the opinion that my winnings are a product of chance if you are willing to consider

                        they are not.  Many great discoveries come while searching for something else

                          I don't believe in any algorithm for solving the problem on how to win the lottery. The odds are always the same. The odds on winning the Powerball game is 175 million to one. No one can make some mathematical equation on to some computer and somehow come up with the winning numbers to win on the lottery. Nonsense!
