No so fast only, the 5 of 5 part of the game is 1 in 3.8 million. The rest is just "bonus" money.

Do you any idea how long it would take to say 3.8 million hail mary's?

@5 seconds per hail, it would take 79166.666666666666666666666666667 days, or roughly 217 years. Eek

    Random is NOT the systematic dissemination of a pool of combinations.

    Let me tell you that it can be exactly that, just like a roulette wheel can produce 1 to 9 in ascending order.

      Hey onlymoney!

      I like your example BTW with the Hail Marys!  Yes Nod

       

      Not to take away from your excellent illustration of time, but: @ 5 seconds per Hail Mary = 12 Hail Marys per minute = 720 Hail Marys per hour

      = 17,280 Hail Marys per 24 hours = 219.9 days of Hail Marys.  3,800,000 divided by 17,280 = 219.9074074 days.

       

      I still wholeheartedly agree, that's a <snip> long time to be reciting anything, let alone 3,800,000 Hail Marys!!!

        Sounds like I need to triple up on those if I want to finish in time to hit 5 of 5........  What?

                    Hay wait a minute, that would be a stable income. I could even afford a nice Derby.
