I'm not good with figuring out odds but I know some of you lottery experts are pretty good with that stuff.

Here is my question--

What would be the odds of a 5+Bonus Ball Game with 28 numbers?

I appreciate any answers,thanks so much!

          Wow,that's a little higher than I thought. I appreciate you figuring that out for me,buddy. How exactly do you do that,if it's not too much trouble to ask?

            I use CoverMaster.  I can see how many possible for Pick 5 and 28 numbers (98,280) then just multiply by 15 (number of bonus balls).

              28x27x26x25x24 divided by 120 = 98280 x 15 = 1474200.

              You get 120 multiplying 1x2x3x4x5.

                      Answer is here

                       

                      You are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus, for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.
