I've been thinking about this recently and could be completely off/wrong. But has anyone ever received a combination like 1 2 3 4 5 - 6 from a lottery terminal playing MM or PB? What about a combination like 51 52 53 54 55 - 42?
I think there are certain combinations that the lottery terminals never spit out (I could be very very wrong and please correct me if I am). If you ignore these un-used combinations then the true odds of winning the jackpot will be lower. Also there are probably certain combinations that the lottery drawing machines never "draw" (taking into consideration 1000-2000 pre-test, post-test, and actual drawings before the matrix is changed).
So lets say if the jackpot is at a record level with record sales which surpass the total combinations, I think there is a very high chance that there will be a winner (maybe even two).
