I created a software program to simulate the lottery.
I've been playing 30,000 numbers at one time and have spent a total of a simulated 900,000 numbers, no jackpot. I used the real drawing numbers from the Florida state lottery page. I press a button to generate 30,000 random numbers, and another to find a match in the list of 30,000 numbers.
I hope to hit the jackpot before I play over 2 million numbers.
It gives you a realistic idea of the odds of winning. If I would of played all of those numbers for the next 10 years, I would of wasted all of that money.
The pick 3 for florida was 3-9-8
I put 3-9-1 into my notepad to see if I would of won. 1 number off, 7 digits off.
I'll reply with how many numbers I had to play before I hit the jackpot.
