Hi,

In case you didn't already know, consider the following:

1) There are 792 combinations when you use 12 numbers.

2) The Challenge allows 4 bonus balls. Then 4 x 792 = 3168.

So, if you happen to be the one to get all 5 numbers and the bonus ball, do not not be upset that you didn't take home the actual prize for real. You would have needed to invest \$3,168 on the game.

Is that a test of confidence or what? *L*

You are a slave to the choices you have made.  jk

Can"t remember the last time someone did get all 5 out of 5 on either the PB or MM challenge?  Much less with the bonus ball.  Please refreash my memory.  God bless and good luck.

Technically speaking and to be correct,  the challenge was based on a 15-5 scenario, that year.  After that the matrix was changed to 12-4.

But man that was a sweet HIT!!!!

Your absolutely correct Fja, forgot to mention the matrix being at 15/5 that year, but it definately was a sweet hit in more ways than one......!
