I don't actually play the West Virginia Cash25 because I live in Mid-Ohio but I like picking combinations for it on the prediction board because it's the easiest pick-6 game in the country. It has the smallest number field and the lowest odds. The player chooses six numbers from 1 to 25. The odds of winning the jackpot are 1:177,100.
Eighty-one percent of all the winning numbers drawn have been in the previous six drawings up to 5 times.
Ninety-seven percent of the winning combinations have one or more numbers from the previous drawing, in fact 2.5% of the winning numbers have 3-4 of the numbers in the previous drawing.
The overall odds of matching 3 or better is 1:8 and that pays a $1 in the real world and add $5 to your total winnings on the prediction board.
Simply by playing the last winning combination, a player could have matched 3 or better 13.4% of the time during the last 1000 drawings which is 0.9% better than the random overall odds of 12.5% of picking a winning ticket.
