If someone could narrow the winning numbers down to 12 whiteballs and 3 powerballs like basilio did, how many different tickets would they need to buy to cover all the different combinations?

Here's the full wheel for 12 numbers.  The white ball portion you have 792 different combinations.  You'll need three of each line to cover the 3 Powerballs, so 2,376 lines.

 Full 5 if 5 of 12 12 5 if 5 792

wow..... 2,376 lines...that's \$4,752 worth of Powerball tickets! Even if someone had the cash lying around, could you imagine filling out hundreds of lottery slips and then walking into the local 7-11 to buy all those tickets... I guess you had better be 100% sure you got the right 12 whiteballs and the right 3 PBs.
