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...

i had tickets lots of time like that coincidence i think not.

they know what their doing that's why people usually buy some tickets then go up and down on the numbers they get and then win...$$$$$$$$$$$$Hurray!

once i got a ticket had all 4 numbers just alike.Green laugh

    Todd has helped us understand that QPs are generated at the local terminal using a "pseudo" random RNG software, so expecting anything more is not going to happen.

    I would imagine a more random selection of lines could be obtained by going back over and over getting one line at a time.

      Its very quiet on the jim/boney front. Is it possible they are giving up on trying to hijack the thread??

                I agree, nicely said.  Talking about odds does not add anything to the game nor take away from it.

                I would rather hear what someone is doing or some information that might help me in my next game

                rather it's mathematically sound sound or not.   With odds of 175+ million to one I don't expect any

                one to have a "works every time" solution.    It seems to me that some are scared $hitless by the 

                prospect that we might win using our feeble minds. 

                 

                RL

                Thanks for the positive feedback, RL.  Positive feedback is better than a putdown.  I, too, would much rather read about what someone is doing and how well their ideas work.

                    "For example, if Stack47 were to translate his ideas involving 19,000 sets of 28 numbers"

                    If you can comprehend that 28 numbers are more than 25 numbers, an explanation shouldn't be necessary. From the MM website:

                    "How To Play

                    Mega Millions tickets cost $1.00 per play.

                    Players may pick six numbers from two separate pools of numbers - five different numbers from 1 to 56 and one number from 1 to 46 - or select Easy Pick. You win the jackpot by matching all six winning numbers in a drawing."

                    I highlighted the key point so you won't be confused. Now for the very easy extremely difficult part for some; in five drawings there will be a maximum of 25 different numbers drawn sooooooooo every group of 28 numbers that includes those 25 numbers will have a five number match in five consecutive drawings.

                    "to the scaled down  (5,2) world here of 5 sets of 4 numbers, we might be able to see more clearly just what he is hypothesizing."

                    From http://www.lotterypost.com/thread/255566

                    "How to Play

                    Remember now, we're playing Lotto, not Pick-2. 

                    Initially, there are 5 Balls in the drawing machine, numbered 1 through 5.  The first selection is made from these 5, and the second is drawn from the 4 remaining." 

                    And again I highlighted the key point because you seem very confused. This "scaled down" thing you're asking me to explain is the same as comparing a 6.7L Cummins Turbo Diesel to a battery operated nose hair trimmer.

                    We're simply trying to find better ways of doing something we're already doing and while your distractions are very comical, they are still nothing more than childish distractions.

                        Because the balls are NUMBERED, it is not a random event.

                        If half the balls were RED, and half the balls were BLUE, what would be the odds of getting all red or all blue?

                        Are odds the same for odd/even combinations, because half the balls are odd, and half the balls are even?

                          Sounds like JimmyApril1,1964 really is giving up........ There is a mathematics forum here jimmy where you and your "really smart" friends could gather and prove that people cant win the lottery on purpose.

                            At least Jimmy went back to the original poat where I talked about looking at groups of numbers that comprise half the total number pool. Keep looking Jimmy, you may be surprised at what you see..............

                              Not that it means anything, but with the lottery I've been playing on a regular basis, I've noticed that if I add the numbers together , the next draw numbers will many times will have that number or the number will part of a number...Take for instance, 23  2+3= 5

                              Many times the next draw will contain the number 5 in some way....5, 15, 25, 35....

                              Not ALWAYS, but a lot of times....

                               

                              And/Or times when the next numbers drawn will total the "5"...for instance: 32 (3+2) or 27 (7 MINUS 2)....

                              just sharing part of "my" strategy with ya...maybe someone else can share any observations they've noticed as well....
