    If your odds of matching 5 are 1:1M then with 20 bonus numbers your odds of match 5+1 would be 20 x 1:1M or 1:20M.

      Where are you guys getting your info from?

      In all my time in public education, and all the probabilty sh*t the made us sit through, i dont remember one relevant example on how to beat the lottery?  coincidence? is this some sort of conspiracy "theory"? 

      Wouldn't it be fitting to teach kids to save your allowance money and beat the lottery?

      Although the answer is always simple when explained to you,( although often it interestingly doesn't sink in for me), and i forget it 10 minutes later. I do understand the derivate, and the tangent. And brownian motion. 

      Where is stack?  I love his posts.  He is so on point with math and data.  He is so sincere in his efforts, i cant seem to pin him as a Repugnican, or a Dumbnocrat. Althought the ORACLE his is prejudices about him.  Wretched ole moonshine miser.

        Who said anything about "beating the lottery" LottoBoner?? All I wanted was BETTER ODDS....

        Knowing that I play with 1 in 20 million odds while everyone else plays the same game with

        1 in 175 million odds is good enuogh for me.

          Stack doesn't strike me as someone who's mind has been polluted by liberal think tank theology.

            That wasn't meant to be a political statement or a personal opinion but a math explanation, if you think it's incorrect then please post a corrected version.

                            Math beats the lottery every day of the week......

                            I get 10X's BETTER ODDS on PB by eliminating 20 numbers from the 59 number pool.
