I have been running a powerball simulation all day long on one set of numbers going through thousands of drawings a minute.
Here are the results:
My Numbers: 28-35-40-47-59 PB:15
My simulation performed 47,850,356 completely random drawings. On the current PB schedule this many drawings would take 460,100 years. My total investment at $2.00 per drawing is $95,700,712.
I have won $1,000,000 5 times by hitting all 5 white balls.
The total I have won is 16,399,662 which is a -83% ROI.
I have yet to win the Jackpot after running this simulation for over 6 hours.
A simulation like this will make you think twice before spending 100's of dollars on powerball tickets. It just takes one ticket to win it though! Someone WILL eventually win. I am still going to play... Thoughts?
