I am wondering are the chance of getting 6 numbers & 5+bonus numbers are the same?
If so, how come mostly the number of people winning 5+bonus is more than 6 numbers in every draw?

Hi winder9,

Here are the odds of winning:
6 numbers 1 in 13,983,816
5 numbers + bonus number 1 in 2,330,636
5 numbers 1 in 55,492
4 numbers 1 in 1,033
3 numbers 1 in 57

We are up against tough odds to get a top prize win

Getting 6 numbers & 5+ bonus numbers are not the same. Here is an example to prove that they are not the same:
winning numbers: 1,2,14,25,41,44 b 39
5 numbers + bonus number

1,2,14,25,39,41
1,2,14,25,39,44
1,2,14,39,41,44
1,2,25,39,41,44
1,14,25,39,41,44
2,14,25,39,41,44

6 numbers
1,2,14,25,41,44

My example shows 6 different possibilities of matching 5 numbers + bonus number.
My other example shows 1 possibility of matching 6 numbers.

I hope this explains your question.
