lottery question


New Member
Connecticut has a lottery game called Cash5. There are 35 numbers to choose from.

You have to select 5 numbers.

5 numbers are then drawn from an airball machine.

What are the odds of the 5 numbers you have selected being the same as the 5 numbers drawn from the airball machine?

The lottery says the odds are 1 in 324,632 as shown in the link below on page 5
( hope the link works.....payoff is $ 100,000 if you guess all 5 numbers )

Not sure how they arrived at the 324,632 odds

Thank you
