For each such unique selection, you also receive two sets of computer-generated numbers, for a total of 24 seven-number combinations. For example, if you select 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8 as your eight-number selection, the eight combinations would be:

 

1-2-3-4-5-6-7

1-2-3-4-5-6-8

1-2-3-4-5-7-8

1-2-3-4-6-7-8

1-2-3-5-6-7-8

1-2-4-5-6-7-8

1-3-4-5-6-7-8

2-3-4-5-6-7-8

The same method of combining numbers is repeated for each of the two sets of computer-generated numbers.

You will receive a single ticket from the retailer that will show the numbers you have chosen and two additional sets of eight computer-generated numbers. All possible combinations, however, will be recorded in the central computer.
