Perhaps boney can help you with statistics. He is very good with that. I would like to see your stats. Perhaps it could shed some light on the discussion. You could prove how consistent QPs hit 5 of 5.

Ronnie316,

In any event, you'll have fun with it.

"I get better odds because I say so."  No mathematical facts, no reproducible methods, just raw, unfiltered EGO."

The fact 28 numbers are more than 25 numbers proves a group of 28 numbers can get more than 1 five number match in 39 drawings. And there is nothing profound by saying it's difficult at best to reproduce a 5 + 1 hit when everybody already knows it.

Do you have anything but negativity to add to this discussion?

You call it negativity, I call it reality.

Here's the thing:  That piece of information gets us no closer to determining what those groups of 28 numbers are.  If the answer to the question "do some number combinations have better odds?" is "yes", isn't the logical follow-up question "which number combinations have better odds?"  Ronnie seems to get real mad whenever anyone asks that question, though.  Why is that?  Is it because he's afraid to admit that he has no flippin' idea?  And if we're not supposed to discuss ways to narrow down the number pool, what's the point of continuing this thread?  At that point it becomes an expanded version of Maddog's Challenge in which Ronnie beats his drum if he hits 3 (or more) out of 5 and taunts the people he doesn't like if they match fewer numbers.  Utterly useless.

Besides, you'll notice that the post I was objecting to was one in which Ronnie proclaimed that x1kosmic's ONE line has "better odds" (than what?) due to the concept of "positive energy flow".  That, in my opinion, is proof that he has given up on finding a mathematically-sound answer -- assuming that was EVER his objective, which I doubt it was -- and has gone off the rails into conjecture.  Furthermore, given his interactions in this thread specifically and on Lottery Post as a whole, it is fairly obvious that he's not actually serious about any of this, that this thread is just an exercise in inflating his ego.

It's a shame because if anyone were to come in here looking for useful information on how to get "better odds", they'd walk away disappointed, wondering why the guy who started the thread has such a chip on his shoulder and doesn't offer any insights other than "intuition" and "positive energy flow".

Tell ya what, Stack.  Despite the fact that you've chosen to be Ronnie's waterboy, I still think you're a relatively smart guy.  One of the best on LP, even.  If you're actually serious about pursuing research into how to narrow down the Powerball or Mega Millions matrix into a pool of 28 numbers that have a decent chance of containing the 5 winning numbers, why don't you break off and start your own thread rather than continuing to associate yourself with this mess?  Leave the serious discussion to serious people and let Ronnie wallow in his own self-aggrandizement.

Its very clear that med NEVER hit 5 of 5 with any of the 175k QP lines no matter how many draws played.

Not sure exacly why your little group of three stooges are so upset that..........

Some number combinations have better odds?

It is easy to see why med would avoid the question at all cost...........

It shows real evidence that QP picks actually have WORSE odds........

Ronnie316,

Since I don't remember you stating just HOW you decide which 20 numbers are not expected to be drawn, I must ask these 2 questions:

1) If one or more of your 25 selections above turn out to be big winners tonight, what will be your conclusion?

2) Will your conclusion have any impact on the work of Pascal or Fermat?

--Jimmy4164

1) YES

2) No
