Maybe I didn't say it right.

If I could afford to play ALL combinations for a guaranteed hit, How many tickets would I have to buy???

In the Michigan Fantasy 5 you can play all 39 numbers in 24 combinations (tickets) and have a guaranteed 2 number winning ticket.

 1  2 29 32 33
 1 10 16 19 33
 1 13 30 33 34
 2  6  7 10 34
 2 13 16 19 30
 3 12 15 22 26
 3 14 22 27 39
 3 17 22 24 35
 4  5 21 36 37
 4 18 20 23 36
 5  9 18 25 38
 5 20 21 23 37
 6  8  9 11 31
 6 25 28 31 38
 7  8 11 31 38
 7  9 18 21 28
 7 12 17 25 39
 8 11 25 28 37
10 13 29 30 32
12 14 24 27 35
12 18 25 34 37
14 15 17 26 27
15 24 26 35 39
16 19 29 32 34

    Why would I want a 2 number winning ticket??

    I like your idea SirMetro.  That could work...when I get some free time. 

    Thanks for everyone's comments...except for the 2 number winning ticket idea. 

    That's just trash Evil Smile

      Lottaloot,

      Ask CalifDude about his 2 of 5 hits in CA. If you're playing all 39 numbers you will have enough $1 winners to recoup some of your losses. Playing 24 lines you will get some 2 of 5's which means that you're buying your 24 lines at a discount. Maybe only $5 but that's a 20% discount on your purchase.

      Just my opinion.

      Posted 4/6:  IL Pick 3 midday and evening until they hit:  555, 347 (str8).

        PadawanLotto,

        The odds of matching 2 is 1:10, so playing 10 lines should be enough to get a $1 win most of the time.
        When checking your 24 lines wheel with all 441 Ohio Rolling Cash5 records it matched two 1112 times - about 3 times each draw, matched three 104 times - 1/4 of the time and matched 4 one time.  Rearranging those numbers might get a match5 and waiting till the jackpot roll to $300K+ could make it worth while.

        When the Old Buckeye5 (5/37) got to 1000 drawings it started to have some repeat combinations.  I wonder how many drawings will Rolling Cash5 have before it start getting repeat combinations. 

         * you don't need to buy more tickets, just buy a winning ticket *

          Thanks RJOh, I used to play the 5/37, 10 tickets using all 37 numbers and did ok with it hitting 2, 3, & 4 number wins. lottaloot didn't explain things very well and I didn't know that he/she wanted to play 10,000 tickets. I just made up those line quickly using Covermaster for a minimum win.

                Lottaloot, I really like Gail's Chart #4 to anticipate hitting numbers for the Cash 5.  My suggestion is to track your Cash 5 game's frequency of repeating, adjacent, and consecutive numbers.  Good luck to you.

                    lottaloot -

                    Re complete drawings for 5/39:

                    I have a "csv" file importable into Excel (12.5Mb) or an Excel file (22.5Mb) for the 5/39 lottery matrix containing all possible drawings with drawing numbers that I can send you if you're still interested. The size of the files can be reduced by deleting the drawing numbers. PM to exchange address info if wanted.

                      Don't do WA state quinto. Odds are 1:2.5 million. 5/52 but the biggest prize has been 4.7 million in cash.
