"How are going to get the 16 in three games with a gazillion possible combinations?"

Individual numbers and combinations are two different things.  Why don't you tell us that the actual odds of having the same number in 3 of 5 lines are?

Sorry KY,

I leave the odds calculations for more mathematicaly inclined people,

ie.  Stack, RJOh, SergeM.

    MC, LottoBoner is saying that the lady chose numbers 16 and 45 on the ticket. I know that it can be done, but it was not a partial quick pick man. It was a complete quick pick ticket from the machine.

    TODD TO THE RESCUE PLEASE.

    I know that it can be done, but it was not a partial quick pick man.

    How do you know?  Did the all seeing eye tell you?

    You are stating this as if it is a proven fact.  It is not. 

    You are making an assumption.

    Until Mcginnin picks up the phone to congratulate and to interview the winners, then we will never know for sure.

    Until that day, I will stick to my biased opinion, as strongly as you will (and have now for a long time) stuck to yours.

      I can't speak for Stack and SergeM, but I'm no more mathematically inclined than the average high school student.

      The problem is some folks are wasting time trying to make sense of BS written by those who have no basic understanding of math at all. Such threads are entertaining but not very educational.

      If they are serious lottery players then the best thing they can do is just move on and not engage the writers of such crap. (some advice I'm guilty of not always following myself.)

        And the 5 and the 26.

        There is no way a RNG calculated this.

        This player choose some numbers and then let the computer do the rest.Wink

        But the 16 is key.

          468 (upside down) smileys up there, babe. Yeah, I like counting and paying close attention, especially when it makes money.

           

          L.L.

          Small games, frequent wins, and regular payouts 'cause.....

          There are seven days in the week...'Someday' isn't one of them.

                    Take FL Cash 3 for example...

                     

                    How often individual numbers come up (across 2860 draws):

                    num 0num 1num 2num 3num 4num 5num 6num 7num 8num 9
                    845882834886877855817852846886

                     

                    How often doubles occur (across 2860 draws):

                    Double 0Double 1Double 2Double 3Double 4Double 5Double 6Double 7Double 8Double 9
                    79958899798780908882

                    *Add it up and that's only 867 occurrences out of 2860 draws; 30%.

                     

                    How often a number pairs with another (across 2860 draws):

                    The one I find most interesting is the sum range. Pair a few of those data sets and you get better odds playing 3-4-5 vs 0-0-0, in theory.

                              Sorry KY,

                              I leave the odds calculations for more mathematicaly inclined people,

                              ie.  Stack, RJOh, SergeM.

                              If you've got no idea what the odds of having the 16 repeat in 3 lines how can you possibly make a claim about whether or not it could happen randomly?
