I'd like to point out that you've also said it's not a game of skill.

 

And you've also said that it is.

 

So it seems like you don't know what you're even saying.

That's what I like about the forum boney,

the rules don't require me to "know what I'm saying" and I'm not being graded.

        Those are all excellent questions. Much more so than anything boney has ever posted here....

         I'm sorry to say I'm behind the curve on these things and only based my choices on raw instincts and gut feelings as the first was a selection of all even numbers and the second all odd numbers..... The next was the 5+1 hit (shown below) chosen from previously drawn numbers....

        (I had played the same single bonus number for 18 draws)

        It would have required more than 28 numbers, but I had used the previous draw as elimination numbers.

          If you do all of the math related to conditional odds, you would realize that conditional odds end up being the exact same as normal odds.

           

          But you guys do the math as if your conditions will be met 100% of the time.  That's why I say you aren't beating the odds, because if you finished your homework you'd find out that you aren't.

          The conditions are the rules of the game; five numbers from 1 to 56 and a bonus number from 1 to 46. Put the two together and they create over 175 million combinations. But that doesn't change the fact only five of those numbers and only one of the bonus number will be drawn. If you think the odds are to high, then don't play. If somebody else doesn't care about the odds or says because 51 of those number will not be drawn, they will try to eliminate as many as possible and still retain the five numbers that are drawn, why do think it's necessary to tell them they are wrong?

          Whomever won the PB drawing had a 20% chance one of the tickets matching the drawing was sold and had the only ticket out of over 32 million tickets that matched the correct five numbers plus the bonus number.

          "That's why I say you aren't beating the odds, because if you finished your homework you'd find out that you aren't."

          A 20% chance a winning ticket was sold times the chance of one out of over 32 million, but you're still saying "nobody beat the odds".

          What am I missing?

                        Jimmy knows that but he is just here lecturing us when he actually knows very little about lottery games, lottery players, or gambling in general. If he was intelligent as he pretends to be, it should be obvious to him lottery players don't care about odds, percentage, probability when they can bet a buck and win millions.

                          I've been on LP for seven years and Ronnie was the first person explaining a system that actually produced a jackpot match. And it doesn't matter what Boney, Jimmy, or any of the the other critics say.

                              Which part of there was only one winning ticket out of 32 million did I miss, Jimmy?
