I don't know but if they can I would like to be the first to prove it.

    Hello RJOH, did you not actually win with 5 of 5 already? Twice I think. I mean where you actually took a winning ticket in and got paid for it.

      I've matched 5of6 twice, once in 2002 and again last month.  I've never matched a 5of5 but plenty of 5of5 have come up that were within the parameters of the picks I was making so I'm hopeful it's just a matter of time before I'm successful.

      I'm focused only on the four games that I can play locally so that should help.

        Oh, cool. Congratulations!!! I think you kinda answered your question right there. I think the odds in the Ohio classic is around 1 in 50,000  of matching 5 of 6. A little over 1 in 5,000,000 for 5 of 5 in PB. Nearly 4,000,000 fpr MM. Sounds like you already beat the odds.

        In a drag race, if a record for speed or time is broken, it takes a similar pass to make it fact. I think you have made that as fact with the two 5 of 6 wins. I don't think there has been 50,000 draws pass since you hit twice has there. LOL. And I know there hasn't been over 4 to 5,000,000 draws for the others.

        I get it from here all the time how it's only luck that's involved. I hate that. I figure if I was so lucky to pull up the numbers as many times as I have for a jackpot game, I should have already won and would have no need to try to figure out a way.

        Congratulations on the win!!!

          yes logic tells me not to play the same 6 numbers   on all  the lines.

          " Still swinging, still missing "
          2014 = -1016; 2015= -1409; 2016  = -1171; 2017 = ?  TOT =  -3596: JAN= -

          keno historic = -2291 ; 2015= -603; 2016= -424; 2017 = ? TOT = - 3318: JAN= -39

            This is where I worked on the PB for the 3-6-13 draw. Using nothing but simple math and logic of what should happen next. The dark green are the numbers that hit. The lime green are what I played. Minus the 23, which I did play. I do use some math in my PB workout, but there is more logic involved. But it's logic I've learned from the math if that makes sense. I've personally never gotten results even close to this with a QP. EVER. So with you hitting 5 of 6 twice already, and what I've seen, it is more than very possible to win a jackpot with math and logic.

            For the PB on this one I was looking for a sum of 10. Either 1 or 9. Didn't use enough logic to see the PB going that low.

                I would play 12 same 6/6's on the same ticket if I knew that they win 6/6.

                  Using classical probability math? I would look for a math teacher or professor. There is Bluskov of course, but when it is about picking numbers everybody is getting silent. Anything in mind with the normal distribution?

                    I'm new to the board but use a math system. I can hoist 4 and 5 out of 5 BUT not every time. Looking at say the past 20 winnings I can hit two of the games but with my logic it always seems to have 1 or 1 numbers that makes absolutely no sense "to me" why that number fell.  So I believe that math and logic can win

                          Is this a rhetorical question?  Are you going to prove it on this thread?

                          Logic is mostly a 'if this then that" scenario.  So if 18 hits tonite in take five then I will play 11 tommorrow and the 18 again. 

                          Every game probably has its "own" special logic formulas, and what works for NY will not always work well for OH.

                          However I am sure some of the underlying random principles apply for both states.
