Megamillions has overall odds of 1:43 of picking a winning ticket worth $2 or more, so the above file can be expected to have 23 winning tickets worth $40 or more. You still have to be lucky not to end up loosing money overall. It may be that your percent of loss go down with more lines.

        rjoh,

        you could probably move the first column number down one laine and have another thousand picks

          To fga,

          Since those numbers were picked by a RNG, picking another 1000 would be easy if the file size is unlimited.  For Friday drawing there will be at least 16 bonus ball matches because there are 16 to 20 of each bonus ball in the lines.  A 1000 lines is probably more than any one person or a small group would ever play.  I will check the list after the drawings and post the results.
