Only one number from the previous 4 draws last night. There's now been 137 drawings since August 29th when 5FTL4 last happened. How long can this go on??
Last year when it seemed like it took forever for 5FTL4 to come out, something happened that could happen again this year. Soon after 5FTL4 finally appeared in mid-April, six more of them hit in rapid fire fashion during May, June, July and August. FF5's history tells us that 5FTL4 happens five or six times per calendar year. My thinking (actually it's a total guess) is that after it finally does happen this year, we'll see multiple hits of it re-appear shortly thereafter. After having looked back in the history file of my software, I saw that 5FTL4 happened 4 or 5 times per year, each year since 2001. Why would 2022 be any different? To me, it's more a question of when it will happen than if it will happen.
One thing about playing lines of 5FTL4 -- As of this minute, these 17 numbers have been drawn in the previous 4 drawings; 8, 17, 23, 28, 34, 2, 21, 24, 35, 6, 9, 11, 32, 36, 3, 20 & 25. They can make a total of 6,188 combination of 5 numbers. That means your odds of winning a jackpot are 6,188 to 1 which is still long odds. (Of course they're far better odds than 376,992 to 1) So just because 5FTL4 might have showed up last night and you played it, that doesn't guarantee you'll win a jackpot. You'll definitely have some winning numbers on each line on your ticket, but one of those lines will have to have all five winners on the same line. What's most likely to happen is you'll win multiple Free Tickets, and maybe even win a little cash with a three-bagger. But then,,,,, maybe you'll have all five winners on one line! Who knows? Crazier things have happened. G5
