    Sorry you feel that way THRIFTY,

    i played a challenge by the RULES period.

    i don't play PB or MM and have no plans to play either in the feature, however i will be very very  happy to see an LP member win either regardless of how they win

    different strokes for different folks ( some feel Maddogs challenge is waist of time, other feels its fun ) it was fun for me and i plan on participating again !

     

    Thanks to all the members who posted congratulations / support

      It appears the heated debate is over and probably the best way to prove it was an accomplishment that can be repeated, why not tell us why you decided to use those 12 numbers with those bonus numbers?

        MADDOGS' Powerball Challenge is a game in itself ... it is interesting to see everyone's predictions and how each draw pans out. For whatever reason it was exciting to finally see a 5+1 winner in the challenge. And Basilio did it with choosing one less Powerball (he chose 3 in that drawing instead of the allowed 4). Life is not just about winning money...

          i used my own system that i developed for a 5/39 game

          it told me what and WHEN to play - as of now its telling me not to play, as soon as it tells me its time i will be posting my numbers again.

                  The question among wheel players is what is the minimum amount of numbers to reasonably expect a five number match and I believe most will say 12 is not consistently enough for a 5/59 game. Any group of 12 of the 59 PB numbers should have a five number match once every 6507 drawings and that includes 12 numbers picked by an RNG. The same odds apply to an RNG; IE it should pick one five number match after selecting 12 numbers out of 59, 6507 times. 

                  I'm not trying to distract from your accomplishment, but wondering if it's something that could repeat in the near future and

                    Belated congratulations. I like your style play only when the time is right. Have you thought of forming a Lottery Pool so playing $4,700 for the jackpot is more affordable.

                      If he repeats his 5+1 match a few more times, someone else will be giving it some thought if he hasn't.

                        Hi all

                        I am amazed by the recent postings here in the Jackpots forum over someone winning Maddog's PB challenge. 

                        Congrats to the winner, nice job.   I guess to settle the dispute Maddog could ask the participant's to generate

                        all the combos from now on and post the entire list.  Let's see, hmmmm,  I think the PB challenge participant's

                        select 12 white balls and 4 bonus numbers.  This would mean that each person would be required to post 3,168

                        lines to cover every possible 5+1.   Posting just the numbers seems to me to be far more efficient.

                         

                        While I think it's true that not many would be confidant enough to invest over three grand for a single game it's still

                        very impressive hitting all five numbers in 12 choices.   It's reasonable to contribute the outcome to chance but how 

                        could we prove it.  I believe I read that the numbers posted were the product of the players system/analysis and

                        even if he/she never does that well again it should not take away from the fact that they had every winning number

                        in their list of 12+4.  Thrifty and others may feel the challenge is a total waste of time and while that may be true for

                        them, others may not hold that opinion.   The odds for winning the PB challenge are 1 in (175,223,510/3168)=55,310

                        which is far less than most daily pick-5 games but still impressive.   If the poster does not play all 3168 combos then

                        even if they do have all the correct numbers in their list they run the risk of removing the JP.   The purpose of the challenge

                        is to trap the winning numbers within a much smaller pool, from that perspective the poster hit a 5+1. 

                         

                        Congrats again to the winner.

                          True some members just can't do the math to figure out what an accomplishment that was.  Even if all 3168 possible combinations were posted, for MM the odds of having the winning 5+1 would still be 1:81721 which is still 8X harder than hitting a straight in a pick4 game.

                            RL

                            Tried explaning that many years ago RL, in no uncertain terms and those who understood it thrive while others struggle  with the format.

                            Hardly anyone didn't understand the complexity of trapping a 5+1 even within those numbers.  When Fja and myself were talking about the odds of the new format I think we took into consideration that it wouldn't be a cake walk so to speak. These numbers are meant to be on a wheeling basis outside of the challenge whether it comes from a key or otherwise.

                            I just want to Thank you for the vivid explanation RL, very well said.                   Thanks again.

                              True some members just can't do the math to figure out what an accomplishment that was.  Even if all 3168 possible combinations were posted, for MM the odds of having the winning 5+1 would still be 1:81721 which is still 8X harder than hitting a straight in a pick4 game.

                              And again thank you also RJ, some people just don't realize the depth involved to trap those numbers and the odds of doing that also.
