Lets assume we're in 5/47+1/27 matrix. What's the probability that both WB 6 and Mega 6 will occur in any certain draw in California Super Lotto Plus?

    About 1::253.0

    There are 41,416,353 different possibilities in a 5/47+1/27 matrix. There are 1,533,939 possibilities in a 5/47 matrix alone, and any given number will appear 163,185 times, yielding odds of about 1::9.4. Adding the "+1/27" would yield the same number of possibilities but increase the odds to 1::253.
