The Florida 5/36 Matrix Fantasy 5 Lottery Game is one of the best lottery bets you can make
anywhere. The odds of matching all 5 winning numbers in the next Fantasy 5 drawing are 1
in 376,992. The odds of matching 4 of 5 winning numbers are 1 in 2,432 and the odds of
matching 3 of 5 winning numbers are 1 in 81.07. Compare Florida’s Fantasy 5 odds to the
millions to 1 odds of a 6-number lotto drawing or a 4+1 number mega-money drawing. Top
Fantasy 5 prize winners over the past 5-years have won as much as $350,000 in a single
drawing and, on those days when there were no top prize winners, players who matched 4 of
5 winning numbers have won as much as $1,150 in a single drawing. Players who match 3 of
5 winning numbers typically win $10, and those players that match 2 of 5 winning numbers
win a free Fantasy 5 ticket for the next drawing.

Lottery games such as Florida's Fantasy 5 are based on a random selection of numbers. It is
impossible for any person or any computer software to predict which numbers will be drawn in
the next drawing. It is for this simple fact alone that you shouldn’t waste your money on lottery
software, lottery wheels or other lottery strategies like those promoted all over the internet.
Most self-described lottery "experts" selling such lottery products all advise against playing
lottery terminal generated "quick picks". Fact of the matter is that of all the Fantasy 5 jackpot
tickets over the past 5+ years (3,989 jackpot tickets), almost 50% were "quick picks" (1,971
"quick-pick" jackpot tickets)


The best ways to improve your chances of winning 3, 4 and 5 number Fantasy 5 cash prizes
are to identify, select and play those number combinations that have historically been drawn
more frequently over a long period of time than those number combinations that have rarely
been drawn over the same period of time. In other words, play the proven percentages.

A great resource that identifies the 2, 3, 4 and 5 number winning number combinations of
1,825 Florida Fantasy 5 drawings from July 16, 2001 (the start date of the 5/36 Matrix
Fantasy 5 game) through July 15, 2006 is the “Florida Fantasy 5 Lottery Facts Report”. The
"Report" was published by BESTRACS Consulting, LLC, a firm that has compiled all the
Florida Fantasy 5 winning number combinations for the past 5-years. The “Report” includes
easy to read tables that accurately depict the number of times each of the 36 numbers was
drawn over the 5-year period; the number of times each of the 36 numbers was drawn in
each of the 5 positions of the winning number combinations (i.e. 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th
position); the number of times each possible 2-number combination (each possible pair) was
drawn; all the 3-number combinations that "hit" 7 or more times over the 5-year period; all the
4-number combinations that “hit” 3 or more times over the 5-year period; high/low and
odd/even winning number combination ratios; other winning number combination
percentages and more.

The "Report" does not definitively tell which numbers or number combinations to play nor
does it suggest any definitive lottery playing strategy or the amount of money to play - it just
represents the actual trends of the winning number combinations and number patterns over
the 5-year period and calculations derived there from.

The "Report" also includes the winning number combinations from July 16, 2006 through the
end of most current previous week as of the date the “Report” is ordered.

The following are some of the playing Tips that are easily derived from the “Florida Fantasy 5
Lottery Facts Report”:


1. Play 3-odd/2-even and/or 2-odd/3-even 5-number combinations. Such odd/even
combinations jointly "hit" a total of 1,208 times over the 5-year period (equates to a 66.19%
winning percentage).

2. Play 3-low (numbers 1 thru 18)/2-high (numbers 19-36) and/or 2-low/3-high 5-number
combinations. Such combinations jointly "hit" a total of 1,226 times over the 5-year period
(equates to a 67.18% winning percentage).

3. Play number pairs that "hit" frequently over the 5-year period (i.e."2-35") with other
numbers that "hit" frequently and with "long shot" numbers. There are several of these
"winning pairs" identified in the "Florida Fantasy 5 Lottery Facts Report".

4. Play consecutive number pairs that "hit" frequently over the 5-year period (i.e."30-31") with
your other numbers. There are several of these "winning consecutive number pairs"
identified in the "Florida Fantasy 5 Lottery Facts Report".

5. Do not play 5-number combinations that "hit" previously over the 5-year period. Only two
of the same combinations repeated over the 5-year period.

6. Do not play the same 4-number combinations repeatedly. Only 32 4-number combinations
repeated more than two times over the 5-year period.

7. Do not play 5-consecutive number combinations (i.e. "5-6-7-8-9"). No such 5-consecutive
number combinations "hit" over the 5-year period.

8. Do not play "all odd number" or "all even number" combinations. "All odd number"
combinations "hit" only 55 times over the 5-year period (a 96.99% losing percentage) and "all
even number" combinations "hit" only 49 times over the 5-year period (a 97.32% losing
percentage).

9. Do not play "all low number" (1 thru 18) or "all high number" (19 thru 36) combinations. "All
low number" combinations "hit" only 41 times over the 5-year period (a 97.75% losing
percentage) and "all high number" combinations "hit" only 42 times over the 5-year period (a
97.70% losing percentage).

10. Always include a few “quick picks” in with your daily Fantasy 5 plays.
