Thanks!

 

By the way, if you guys have an INSIDER for the PB Number ever thought about negotiating with the white balls department?

What? Thud

    5 even numbered white balls in the last drawing. Does anyone keep track of how often this occurs?

    We went all through this when I first started this thread talking about Red and Blue, Even and Odd......

    Any 28 numbers (regardless of color or sexual orientation) has a 2.6% chance of holding the winners.

        Most everyone who picks a number and sticks with it hits within 15 -20 draws. Give it a try, and you will have cut your overall odds in half and given yourself BETTER ODDS.

              Guessing the PB number at 1:35 is a lot easier than guessing the five white balls numbers at 1:5,006,386.

                  Eliminating some...wheeling the rest is akin to fencing the hen house and catching the fox at the same time!

                      There are strategies other than "elimination some and wheeling the rest", which I'm experimenting with.

                        I too am looking into a "new angle" as we speak. I will see how it pans out over the next few weeks

                          Last draw I had no problem eliminating 10 from the pool of 59 PB numbers.

                            Choosing 5 numbers from 49 numbers instead of 59 creates BETTER ODDS of 1 in 1.9 million......
