I just had my best loss ever in the Florida Lotto pick 6 for $27,000,000. Although I didn't get a single number selecting from 1-53, I did successfully determine all six "decade" groups for each ball for last night's drawing.
My pick was:
Winning #s were:
After calculating, the chance of successfully picking all the correct "decades" is 1 in 46,656. (Are my calculations correct in assuming "6 groups x 6 groups x 6 groups x 6 groups x 6 groups x 6 groups" ? But there are only 3 numbers in 50s so I think that skews the data, but not sure.)
Anyway, I feel pitifully accomplished!
Maybe next time, I'll be able to get some of the correct numbers.
...Someone's going to win eventually...
...Never know, could be me...
