Oh...I hope you played them so you can collect the winnings. I'm not sure what prize payout is anyway as I'm not to familiar with MegaMillions. ....But you played 28 numbers...and wheeled them so I imagine that would cost a lot. I'm saving up some money so when I get back to the states sometime next year I can choose a good amount of numbers to wheel and try it out once or twice lol lol. As I have only played quick picks since I first started playing back in june 2012. Hell i don't even know how to play/choose my own numbers. I thought it was a slip or something....but usualy never seen one at the register. lol

Good job again though

Thank you sir,

Im still trying to figure out the math but with a guaranteed 2 of 5 on one of the lines the 3 of 5 is a 3 in 54 chance, the 4 of 5 is an additional 2 of 53 chance and the 5 of 5 is an additional 1 in 52 chance.......

Again I'm not exactly sure about the math, but with random numbers I would think 1000s of lines could be played without ever getting a single 2 of 5 line.

This is something I would never do with live numbers.

It was more of getting an idea of how truly random numbers, stacked up against your system picked numbers.

Twenty QP's are the most I've ever played. I still believe in them however in conjuction with my self-pick numbers, and will continue to do so.

What would probably be more conclusive, is to continue posting like this for the next couple of weeks with both PB and MM's.

This might provide a small peak into a possible trend with using  exclusively QP numbers.

Im trying to find out how many random lines can be played without getting 2 of 5......

That will give us a comparison to 46 lines that are guaranteed 2 of 5.......

Its all in the math.

It's "wheels" that explain all of lifes mysteries, math just tells us why wheels have BETTER ODDS than QPs.

He has one on eBay for \$29.99, plus \$9.95 for shipping, or \$19.95 for high priority rush shipping.

It's called "How To Beat the Odds".
