Here's a good one for ya;

Today, I noticed that I had stashed a T5 ticket in a beer mug that I used to drink beer from in my old college beer drinkin' days. The mug sits on top of my dresser.  I pulled the ticket out of the mug, and realized that I  bought a five day ticket right before we left for North Carolina, and I put it in the beer mug  thinking "I'll check it when I get back from NC."  I bought five lines for five days.  I knew I'd be out of NY for a week, and I wanted to play while I was away.

My plan was a good one except for one thing.  I forgot all about that ticket when we got home, and I didn't see it until this morning.

Anyway, I took it with me when I left the house and stopped to get a cup of coffee in a Stewart's Shop and scanned the ticket.  I won seven (7) FP's....... At least that's what the scanner said.  So I gave it to the woman behind the counter and she scanned it.  That stupid music played from the terminal and it punched out a ticket.  She looked at it and said "Oh my God!  You won SEVEN Free Plays!  How come you're so lucky?" 

"I dunno." I said. "I dunno."  But I really did know.  Lotto Stats Best Sets!  G5

About playing the lottery --  You will lose more than you win. Until you hit a jackpot.  Then everything changes!

    LOL G5 you are a pisser, yes I am humbled to be in those great magazines.   I been looking at those Quints for years it was crazy seeing a set of Take 5 numbas drawn and repeating my only question is of those 44 sets when will one of them hit a THIRD time ...........  tonight???  Good luck everyone!

    MINK

    Ya know Mink, it will happen some day..... 

    I called my daughter (she graduated from college in 2012 with her degree as a math major) and told her about the Great T5 Mystery.  I explained to her that it has happened in many other states as well.  I asked her if she knew any math or statistics Prof's at her former college that she could ask about why it happens as frequently as it does.  My daughter still keeps in touch with many of her former prof's.  She was their "fair haired golden girl" while she was in school. In her Senior year, one of her profs arranged an all expenses paid  trip for my daughter to The University of Nebraska to present a research paper she had written to a convention of math geniuses.  My daughter told me what the research paper was all about, but I didn't understand a word she said...... I had absolutely no clue what she was talking about.

    She said she really didn't know many statistic's profs, but she made this comment; "It's obviously a lot more probable than most people think it is, because it's happened so many times in other states too."

    I asked her why she used the word "probable", did that have anything to do with the subject of probability?

    She said yes, that although the two subjects of statistics and probability are related, they aren't the exact same thing, and that it's most likely "more of a probability thing than it is a statistics thing."  She went on to say that it could be the case where "Statistics says it shouldn't happen much, but probability says it can and should. The answer definitely can be found in Academia."   By "academia" she means some Math or Statistics PhD at some college somewhere would immediately recognize it and tell you that "It's The blah blah blah Principle" 

    Ok with me I guess....  Hell, if I knew playin' the lottery was gonna get this deep, I dunno if I'd have bothered to play.  I just play for the fun of it, and oh yeah, to win a big effin' pile of money which I could use to pay off my daughters college loans!  G5

      I posted about the Great T5 Mystery in another forum here at The LP and got the following response;

      "It's known as the "birthday paradox". If you have a group of just 23 people, it's more likely than not that two of them will share a birthday. The reason is that you have to consider the number of pairs of people, not just the number of people.

      For the same reason, in a set of 894 drawings for a 5/39 matrix, it's more likely than not that two of them will have the same numbers."

      So I Googled "birthday paradox".  There's a Wikopedia article all about it, but don't bother.  It's SUPER Geeky! But the Wikopedia article does mention "probability theory" and uses the word "probability" a lot!  So I guess that math degree of my daughter's is worth something.  And yeah, "it's a lot more probable than most people realize!"  I'm kinda proud of that 25 year old daughter of mine even if she does sometimes know everything about anything. Just ask her.  She'll tell ya.  G5

            OK, it's "The Birthday Paradox".

            But here's what I don't understand.  It doesn't happen with games that have a 6/XX matrix.  For instance, it never happened with Sweet Million, a 6/40 game.  Or Lotto which is a 6/59 game. 

            I would think it would happen with those games too, but it doesn't.  Why is that?  G5

              The 17 is off the charts.

              But we shouldn't be surprised.  It was off the charts for all of last year.  (It had 11 hits in Sept 2014) I guess it's just keepin' on keepin' on with it's winning ways. 

              The 6 is the number one T5 number drawn of all time, and it too has been smokin' hot in 2015. It's number one in terms of hits in 2015 with 22, and the 17's hot on it's heels with 21.   G5

                Uh-oh!  I spoke too soon.

                It HAS happened with a 6/48 game.  Oregon Megabucks a 6/48 game.  Megabucks started on June 2, 2001, it's  had 3,381 drawings, and has had 1 duplicate set of six winning numbers.  Maryland Multi-Match (6/43) is another one.  It's had one set of six duplicate winning numbers in 960 drawings since 2/4/2006.

                I stand corrected.  G5

                  Aint computers and software just grand? 

                  I mean thanks to my PC and Advantage Plus software, I definitely learned something new in the last few days. You know, I learned about the good ole "Birthday Paradox."

                  I guess it's interesting... but who the hell ya gonna tell about it???   Picture this:  I'm at a neighborhood party/gathering where alcoholic libations are being served, and I start spouting off about "The Birthday Paradox".  And everybody in the joint is staring at me like I'm some kinda effin math GEEK or something!

                  Sure, knowing that the Bbirthday Paradox has hit Take5 44 times in the last 23 years is cool to know, but it sure don't tell ya shirt about what's gonna happen TONITE!  And baby, that's all I wanna know!!!  What effin five numbers are comin' out tonite??? 

                  Who gives a shirt that the Birthday Paradox even exists?  Does it make me a more knowledgeable lottery player?  Hell yes!  Does knowing that it exists make me any richer?  HELL NO!  G5

                              Aint computers and software just grand? 

                              I mean thanks to my PC and Advantage Plus software, I definitely learned something new in the last few days. You know, I learned about the good ole "Birthday Paradox."

                              I guess it's interesting... but who the hell ya gonna tell about it???   Picture this:  I'm at a neighborhood party/gathering where alcoholic libations are being served, and I start spouting off about "The Birthday Paradox".  And everybody in the joint is staring at me like I'm some kinda effin math GEEK or something!

                              Sure, knowing that the Bbirthday Paradox has hit Take5 44 times in the last 23 years is cool to know, but it sure don't tell ya shirt about what's gonna happen TONITE!  And baby, that's all I wanna know!!!  What effin five numbers are comin' out tonite??? 

                              Who gives a shirt that the Birthday Paradox even exists?  Does it make me a more knowledgeable lottery player?  Hell yes!  Does knowing that it exists make me any richer?  HELL NO!  G5

                              You're talking like a second grader who asks why does he has to know two plus two equal four and where is he ever going to use that information and yet the person who figured out the statistics that proved the birthday paradox exists had to know that and more. 

                              Before I retired I was a maintenance mechanic and when I was called out to fix a piece of equipment and did some simple to get it running again the attendants would say "that was simple, I could have done that" and would always reply "you didn't that why I was called".  My point is just knowing stuff isn't enough if you don't how to use what you know.
