5 + 1. Five of five in one matrix and one of one in another, in the same drawing.
Actually, they are two lotteries in one, or a lottery parlay.
If you get all the numbers on top, you still have to have the right number on the bottom (of the playslip). That's why there are so many possible combinations.
When the bottom number is one of the top numbers I wonder how many people who have hit 5 + 0 would have had a jackpot but they thought, "I already played that number."
It seems when the jackpots are pumped up this happens often enough that we should be aware of it.
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.
