Here's something that a lot of people don't know about PB, MM and other similar games. Every single combination has almost exactly the same chance of being drawn, including combinations where every number is less than 6, combinations where every number is between 33 and 39, combinations where none of the numbers contains a digit other than 1 or 4, and the combination that was drawn in the previous drawing.  Something else a lot of people don't know: None of the combinations can be ruled out.

    Oh, I don't know,,,I have ruled out 1,2,3,4,5 BB 6 since the game started, and I've been right every time....and I'll probably be right for 500 years. give or take a century..

      In the last 535 MM drawings - 01 02 03 04 05 +06  has paid $196 which is about the same as most combinations that have never won.

      That's 13 wins in 535 games or overall odds of 1:38 of winning something or about 0.2% pay back.
