The odds for this prize level are directly influenced by the Mega Ball. Therefore the variables associated with the main ball pool and those associated with the separate Mega Ball pool must be taken into account in order to calculate the correct odds, hence the following formula is used:


C(n,r) = Odds of correctly choosing r balls from n
n = Number of balls in the main pool
r = Balls drawn from the main pool
m = Balls to be matched from the main pool
t = Number of balls in the bonus pool
b = Balls drawn from the bonus pool
d = Balls to be matched from the bonus pool


Substitute:
n for 75 (number of balls in the main pool)
r for 5 (balls drawn from the main pool)
m for 5 (balls to be matched from the main pool)
t for 15 (number of balls in the bonus pool)
b for 1 (balls drawn from the bonus pool)
d for 1 (balls to be matched from the bonus pool)


Expand:
C(75,5) = 75! ÷ (5! × (755)!)
C(5,5) = 5! ÷ (5! × (55)!)
C(755,55) = 70! ÷ (0! × (700)!)
C(15,1) = 15! ÷ (1! × (151)!)
C(1,1) = 1! ÷ (1! × (11)!)
C(151,11) = 14! ÷ (0! × (140)!)
! means 'Factorial' eg: 75! = 75 × 74 × 73 ... × 1
Note: 0! = 1


Simplify:
75! ÷ (5! × (755)!) = 17,259,390
5! ÷ (5! × (55)!) = 1
