      Huh?  Anyway i had an idea for guesser.....you started a Thread but mabey dropped it.  But I had an idea.  Why not start a deal where everyone who wanted to paticipate picks one simple little number only, in Powerball, in the white balls only, and instead of how, why, and so-forth, just give a number......we'll call it guessers-guess,  and at the end of the year, or month or something who-ever got the most right, mabey Mr. Todd could put a gold star by their name, .....or something.  And mabey,  after a month or so, you might say something like this, " Hey it looks like so-and-so gets one every time "  ......mabey i'll use their number for the next draw......You see what I'm getting at?        Would that help you?  Or is there something like that already here?

        If you're talking about the odds of hitting 4 out of the 5 numbers in one line...

        There are 250 possible lines that will match exactly 4 out of 5 of the white balls in any drawing.  A random line has a 1 in 13,915 chance of matching exactly 4 out of 5.

        This has nothing to do with the red powerball.
