      Well, they did say "and yet... so far." Assuming those are predictions or real tickets, they got all of the winning numbers, just not in any groupings that won anything. That's better than some lists where people are congratulated on getting 3 or 4 numbers. Even using 34 numbers, the chances of having all 5 of the winning numbers is only 1.5%.

      What I want to know is where's the power ball in 9 of the 10 combinations? Did they play those combinations and use the right power ball for all 9? If so, the chance of getting that "close" becomes 0.04%. That's not even close to the chances of hitting the jackpot, but it's pretty damn good. Even if they played a different power ball on the remaining 9, and just didn't list them, the overall chance would still be 0.4%.

        OOPS - I gues I made a bad judgment by leaving out the Power Balls..  I play 10 games with both Power Ball and Mega Millions on eah drawing.  The complete listing is as follows:

        Game 1:  6,40,43,50,51 + 9

        Game 2: 16,21,27,31,53 + 10

        Game 3:  2,8,26,39,53    + 11

        Game 4:  1,20,23,54,58   + 20

        Game 5:  7,11,24,34,56   + 21

        Game 6:  9,18,33,40,41    + 24

        Game 7:  28,40,45,47,55   + 27

        Game 8:  10,16,23,44,46   + 30

        Game 9:  23,28,35,53,55    + 31

        Game 10: 16,29,48,51,59    + 37

        These are the numbers on my BETSLIPS, and is not a prediction.

            One thing to keep in mind that most people don't is:

            What made you choose these individual numbers ?

            What made you put these numbers together in a particular set ?

            Folks need to really keep track of WHY they do things, and why they eliminate certain numbers.

            If you just blindly put these numbers together, you are really not getting anywhere.
