Hello

I've just read on offical nylottery site that the odds of winning in quick draw, assuming we choose to play two numbers is 1/16.63

According to my calculations is should be 1/16

How did they get the .63??

2 SPOT GAME
Numbers Matched�Winning Per $1 Played
2�$10
Overall Chances of Winning 1:16.63

If your not sure what I mean Google this and click on first result

nylottery quick draw chances of winning

I can't post links.

Thanks

    Maybe you're rounding down.
