There have been over 700 million predictions posted on LotteryPost, what has been the biggest prediction win to date?

The odds against predicting the winning numbers in any game are the same as the number of tickets sold for every drawing. Premium members get up to 50 picks and combined that is probably less than 0.01% of the total possible in any given jackpot drawing. There were 5/39 winning predictions and pick-3 and pick-4 games have several winners every day.

Even with predicting 5 + 0, there isn't enough predictions to expect a winner, but we should get a few.

    And that makes it difficult to discuss because while it's an accomplishment, the winning combo wasn't actually played. Not much different than predicting 5 of 28 MM numbers with just one bonus number.

    5 of 28 regular numbers with one bonus number would have 98280 possible combinations which are a lot more.

          I remember Basilio as well and the ones who were mean to him. I also liked the fact that he/she admitted upfront he did not actually win unlike others who try to play coy and pretend they won.

          it's too bad Basilio isn't on LP anymore. I wonder if he just got really lucky that one time or if he had some sort of system.

              Basilio said he only played a 5/39 game and used the same system for the challenge. While it was quite an accomplishment, there was plenty of room for criticism after saying he never bought a MM or PB ticket.

                It's a game without rules so what's the relevance of how much predictions anybody makes?

                  worldwide-play has matched 5 of 5 on the predictions board tonight for a $50,000 simulated prize on the Atlantic Canada game ShaBam.

                    He played Maddog's Powerball Challenge and he won. I don't see what he did wrong that would justify criticism. What does having to buy lottery tickets have to do with anything? That is not a prerequisite for playing the challenge.

                    If everyone who takes part in the challenge had to buy all the combinations to cover 12 WBs and 4 PBs,  they would be broke in no time.

                    What do you suggest Basilio could have done differently? Even if he had spent $2,000 on Powerball tickets on that particular drawing that would not have covered one fourth of the possible combinations.
