      A sure fire way to increase your odds of winning would be to free up some of the hours you currently spend pondering your selections and spend them on a part time job, using all the money earned to buy  MORE TICKETS like those above.  Not only Boney, Mediabrat, and myself will agree that you are increasing your odds of winning something, but every mathematician in the world as well!

      I get BETTER ODDS than you when I buy ONE ticket..................

        I thought mathematical acceptance was when we first understood 5 of something is more than 1 of something; like 5 pennies are more than one penny and any 5-year-old that understands it, is generally accepted. Calculating the probability of any group of 28 numbers having a five number match is a little more complex math, but the results show there should be 1 five number match in the next 39 outcomes.

        You ran a test using a group of 28 numbers and had 5 five number matches in less than 39 drawings and I understood that 28 numbers is more than 25 numbers and knew that 25 or less numbers are drawn in five consecutive matches. So there are thousands of groups of 28 numbers that will match 5 numbers every five consecutive drawings.  If my mathematical argument still doesn't prove it to them, your use of specific groups of 28 before the drawings should.

        If Jimmy and others still can't believe some number combinations do get better odds, they can ask a 5-year-old why 5 pennies is more then 1 penny.

        Yeah, like when our 98,820 lines proved to be 10 times BETTER than mediabrats 175,000 lines.

          Run a Monte Carlo simulation based on 50,000 $1 QP players playing you mythical game every day for five years and give a detailed report; maybe that will empress someone.

          I don't think JimmyApril1,1964 wants to DO anything. He just wants to make up stuff for other people to do.

            You seem to be forgetting that statiscal analysis requires far more work than you're pointing out.  FAR more.  In fact your argument is inherently fallicious, in that you are comparing two entirely different branches of mathemtics, as if they're exactly the same concept.  They aren't even close.  Arithmetic and Statistics are just far too differnt to be compared in that manner.

             

            Of course it's convenient for people to just over simplify things like you just did, to the point where they aren't even using the right math, but that doesn't make it correct.

             

            Igorance is bliss, isn't it?

            C'mon boney, your back to the "ignorance" theme? Just because we dont agree dosnt mean were ignorant.

                        Why do you want me to answer a question about a game that pays 75 cents on a $3 "match any number" bet when I can get 50 bucks doing the same thing playing any pick-3 game?

                          Thank you Stack for trying to stay on topic in spite of all the disruptive posts of boney and jim.

                          It occurs to me that the 5 times BETTER ODDS I achieved in the 39 draw trial DID NOT include hitting the bonus number on one of those 5 of 5's which adds the 1 in 46 element to those odds........

                          What are the odds? lol.

                          The odds are 45 to 1.

                          Most of our math "gurus" don't really understand gambling and they figure odds as chances to win compared to the total possibilities. The same gurus will say the odds are 46 to 1, but then quote Roulette odds as 37 to 1 because they read it somewhere.

                          The probability of 25 numbers having a five number match is 71 to 1, yet in every drawing several thousand groups of 25 numbers will have five consecutive five number matches.

                          I'm pretty sure that getting 14.2 to 1 odds against is better than 71 to 1 odds against, "but it's impossible for any group of numbers to get better odds".

                            I find it interesting that line D on both tickets repeat one of the white ball numbers as the bonus ball number. Just a coincidence I'm sure...
