"You guys need to quit that prediction nonsense and keep playing the lottery with real money. It is the reason that we have never seen a lottery jackpot winner from the lottery post community."

Are you now trying to blame the participants in this thread for the loses of other LP members?

I would never do such a thing, but it would never change the fact that I consider most predictions fuzzy math methods unless they win a jackpot with a real lottery ticket. It has not happened.

I forgot that you were the one that introduced Ronnie to the nonsense of predicting the jackpot winning numbers from a group of 28 numbers.

You are like those economists that are helping the president to set economic policies. They are using fuzzy math methods that can't be applied in a real world scenario. We would never see any logical person betting \$98k plus on every mega milliions or powerball drawing in order to match 5+1.

Why play the lottery if you can afford to spend \$98k plus on 18 drawings like Ronnie did in order to match 5+1. Remember when the MM jackpot reached \$640M?

Another news flash Thrifty..........

Just because YOU only have \$1. to spend on each draw does not mean that EVERYONE should be limited to playing \$1. on each draw. Lots of people can and do spend a million each day.

BECAUSE THEY HAVE THE MONEY AND CAN SPEND IT ANY WAY THEY WANT TO.

All combinations have the same odds. The balls don't know they're numbered. The mixing machine doesn't know the balls are numbered. The air blowing through the mixing machine doesn't know the balls are numbered. Don't get confused just because you know the balls are numbered.

I personally think the balls KNOW they are numbered and they talk to each other during the tumbling process and take turns jumping out of the hopper. Thats why we get E-O-E-O-E.

Im happy to add \$15,400,000. to the winning side of my ledger.

Expense is 98,820 X 18 = \$1,778,760.

Wins are (5+0 twice) \$500,000. + \$177,876 + \$15,400,000. = \$16,077,876.

Win total = \$14,299,116.

Depends on the parameters of the wheel(size,coverage,guarantees and etc.)
A full wheel with 98,280 combinations:
5+1 = 1
4+1 = 115
3+1 = 2530
2+1 = 17710
1+1 = 44275
0+1 = 33649

Wow, thanks RJOh, you are awesome.

4+1 = \$1,150,000

3+1 =   \$379,500

2+1 =    \$177,100

1=1 =    \$132,825

0+1 =     \$67,298

Total \$1,924,723.

That's enough extra money for a nice dinner out.

Just wondering? Would the totals be the same if 5+1 missed and 4+1 hit??

What I posted assumes all 5 winning white ball numbers were in a full wheel, if only four of them were in it or it wasn't a full wheel then the results would be different.

So in a 28 number wheel that hits 4+1 what are the totals for

4+1

3+1

2+1

1+1

0+1
