Perhaps it would be BETTER to produce a list of all possible combinations and randomly choose from the list?

Producing a physical list that size would take time and I would probably be blindly picking from it and that is what I'm doing when I'm picking random combinations made up from numbers in the pool.  If all the winning numbers are in the two pools, I'm likely to have a small winner anyway since the overall odds of having a winner are 1:9.8.

I never said the word "physical" lol. lol. Your a computer genius compared to me... lol. lol.

A list of 400k or so should be no big deal for your computation skills.

I took the entire 3.8 million MM pool and divided it into 39 equal groups to track the performance of each group but realized..... I aint got no computer skills and quite tracking, but I often wonder what the past performance of those groups are just out of curiosity.....

Knowing a little GWBasic doesn't make me computer genius compared to anyone.  Anyone can learn a computer language although I would suggest they learn one that works on Windows 7 and beyond.
