              The point is that if it happened before it will happen again. For tonight as an example, if I play the numbers from the 4 previous draws the total numbers played is 18.

                If I play 20 numbers instead of 28 numbers, what are my odds of hitting 5 of 5??

                  It's not the amount of numbers you play that determines your odds of matching 5 of 5, it the amount of combinations you play.  Each combination has odds matching5 of 1:3,849,816 in MM and 1:5,006,386 in PB

                  With 28 numbers you could cover any of 98,280 combinations and with 20 it's 15,504

                   * you don't need to buy more tickets, just buy a winning ticket *

                    That does answer my question. Playing a 20 number full wheel is 6.3 times less favorable than playing a 28 number full wheel. That means a 20 number group should hit 1 in 245 tries.

                    I wonder if I can get BETTER ODDS??

                              Repeat bonus numbers are frequent for MM. Not so with PB.
