not trying to brag here i could be wrong [you see i never did or do specialized on Powerball/MegaMillions/BigGame] but Powerball itself has like: 4 million combinations those 4 million combinations are repeated: 46 times due to the bonus ball...there are combinations that are alike but got different bonus balls..

4 million x 46 bonus balls = 184 million as in 184 million combinations...

so the key is figuring out the bonus ball...

A Pick5/55 has = 3.7 million combinations they are just multiplied 46 times [the 46 bonus balls]...

It sounds as if Powerball had: 200 million combinations but it really does not...If you knew the bonus ball all the time all you had to do is crack the: Pick5/55 or Pick5/59....

i owed this thanks to : dotcom website [the odds calculator]....

The Forex trades: 1.6 Trillion dollars EVERY day, that´s more than the GDP of the Carribbean Central America, COMBINED. Enough to feed every crook out there for centuries...To all Geniuses & Powers Countries of the World the Planet needs breakthroughs in all Medicine, Veterinary, Biology related fields, Psychology, Population Psychology/Sociology..They need to genetically ingeneer new plants species/types to give more variety of plants and thus have more resources for combating diseases¨

Pumpi,

The top matrix on a Powerball playslip has 59 numbers now, not 55. So it's not hitting 5/55 anymore, it's 5/59.

There are 39 Powerball numbers (bonus balls), not 46.

There are 5,138,133 combinations for the top matrix.

Powerball has 195,249,054 combinations.

Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

When Florida joined PowerBall it became a 5/59 + 1/39 game.  There are 5,006,386 possible combinations of 5 in 59 numbers.  So now PB has 5,006,386 x 39 = 195,249,054 combinations.  You need to update your data.

To crack it one must stay aware of the current odds, total balls for both white ball and power ball! Like RJOH said.
