Interesting system. I hope you win once per year. For $10/day for a year would run you $3,560. Not a lot comparing to the jackpot prizes that could be yours.

The only thing I see in this system is that it still have the same odds of 1 in 575,757. With this system 8 in 575,757. Disapprove

Then again, anyone playing the 39 numbers game will have the same odds. The system an individual may use can give better odds IF they got all 5 numbers in a pool.

Have you ever hit 4/5 balls with this system?

When we use all 39 numbers, we always have a realistic chance of winning the jackpot, but at best only two of the combinations can win anything. If we play the same eight combinations every day, we should expect the return to be about the same as starting odds; we should expect to match 4 out of 5 once for every 3387 tickets we buy. There are number of other ways to arrange the eight combinations like using standard filters that when successful could slightly raise the overall win expectation.

There is a 2 if 5 wheel using all 39 numbers that has 25 combination and while pretty expensive for daily play, might be worthwhile for spot play chasing the $250,000 plus jackpots. Since we're already guaranteed to match 2 numbers and because each number is used more than once, it gives us a more realistic chance of matching 3, 4, or all 5 numbers.

I matched all 5 numbers playing a 3 if 5 of 15 number wheel and won exactly what wheel guaranteed; one 3 number match. There was a 2 number match too so I ended up getting back $11 on my $13 wager.
