How is picking 4 balls with 59 balls easier than 5 with 39? I suggest you look at Mini Lotto on Lottoland 5 balls 42 numbers 25p a play.

It just is :-). The number of balls drawn makes a huge difference.
The odds of matching 4 from 59 are 1-in-455,126 The odds of matching 5 from 39 are 1-in-575,757
Never go by what ‘looks better’ – go by the odds!
Lottoland’s Mini Lotto is based on the Polish Mini Lotto. And with 5 from 42 the jackpot odds are 1-in-850,668.

I agree with Ricky. I don’t see how this could be true. If it’s true it’s a new one on me.

If you look up the lottery math then you can prove it for yourself 🙂

I believe you. I’m just not smart enough to figure out the reason that would be.

I wouldn’t say it was simple :-). Maths is just one of those areas where no matter how much you learn, there always seems to be something even more complicated to challenge you.
