Still a very nice win!  Yes Nod    Were you using any particular system back then, beyond your own methods.  Roll Eyes

I was using what is the basic of the system I'm using now.  It's hard to tell some times if the changes I've made since has made it better or worst than it was then.

    I can't afford a violation of that magnitude, I'm on a very strict probation.   Unhappy

    Is it true that some particular combinations have much better odds.  What?

    Turning $2 into $60M dollars is a great return on investment. The PB jackpot is $60M.

      The winning combination for any lottery game.

      PB winning combination cost $2 to play.

      MM winning combination cost $1 to play.

        I don't now which combinations they are but Ronnie claims in other threads to have scientific proof of it so you'll have to either recheck his data or wait for him to match 5of5 for real if you have any doubt.

            MM winning combination cost $1 to play.

            Those of the same prices charged for the losing combinations which are 97% the possible combinations.

              I know the great Ronnie316 has achieved both 5+0, and 5+1 in his simulations. I have no doubt, just not the deep pockets for playing

              that magnitude of combinations at this time.

                Spending $1 for a MM winning combination makes economic sense?

                Spending $2 for a PB winning combination makes economic sense?

                    Tonight I'll be entertaining myself by thinking about the extra tickets I can afford for Tuesday's MM drawing because I didn't buy any PB tickets for tonight's drawing.

                        Ok so maybe my work doent rise the level of "scientific" proof, but Im still going to try and go with "arithmatific" or maybe "grammertific"

                        btw, the 2 random number control groups have not even come close to winning.

                          that magnitude of combinations at this time.

                          My thoughts exactly! What Ronnie316 is doing is absolutely possible, and, extremely reasonable logic-wise. It's the monetary factor which makes it sort of unattractive, for me, because I know I don't have and can't come up with that kind of money to net those kinds of results. In the end, it's all basic math based on certain numerical formats and/or combinations with the right amount of money spent to play/simulate those numbers for  projected consistency factor. It works, and it's the exact same thing I did with Pick 3.

                          If you spend the right money the right way, you can't help but to win and I really admire what he's doing here. All Pick 3/4 players should be taking notes here...SERIOUSLY. Both those games contain what...at least ONE MILLION LESS COMBINATIONS with Pick 4, and, even more with Pick 3! In other words, they are manageable in terms of coming up with enough money to play and win on them consistently. This would especially true for someone playing online where things are different.

                          I really like the real world possibilitiesYes Nod...just no money to properly implement.No Nod

                            The folks at MegaMillions will be glad to read that.

                            I read both PB and MM check their equipment regularly to make sure no little quirk has popped up that players can take advantage like that couple in the Massachusetts Windfall game or those Asians at the Golden Nugget casino in New Jersey.

                            PB got a scare a few years ago when 200 players matched 5of5 in the fortune cookie incident.

                              This is a red flag in itself. They don't mind taking in millions from players on every draw, but when 200 players match (5) numbers, they get all jiggy with itWhat? It was time for them to pass it on!! Remember the original "Friday" movie? What did Smokie say? I'll jog your memeory...
