hello everyone. I;ve been wondering. i know powerball and TN pick5 both have a long shot of winning top prize. But in reality which one gives you the best chance of winning the top prize. considering pick is just played in TN and powerball is a multi state game. Thanks in advance.
The TN 5/39 game odds of winning is 1 in 575,757
The PB 5/59 game odds of winning is 1 in 5,006,386
Clearly your chances of winning are ten times better playing the 5/39 game.
If you were to buy two tickets with 10 unique numbers the odds of having all five winning numbers among the ten for a three number win or better would be . . .
TN 5/39 1 in 2,284
PB 5/59 1 in 19,866
