Am I going crazy?

Please correct me if I'm wrong. I'm sure I'm wrong because it's too good to be true. Maybe my mind is not working correctly.

I just saw something on  my Fanatasy Five ticket here in Florida, which I didn't see earlier.

Since you can't see the ticket, I will describe it.

My QP numbers on the ticket: 10  26  29  31  36

Under my QP numbers, the following is stated:

"Match any ezmatch numbers below with any of your Fantasy 5 numbers above and win the prize shown instantly".

Next thing you see below that statement above:

The following are my ez numbers:

04 - $500

11 - $100

18 - $2

22 -$500

32 -$3

Isn't it possible to play all 36 numbers within 8 tickets? 

It dosen't matter what the computer picks out, one of those 1-36 numbers have to come out, guaranteed to win both of those $500.00 prizes above, right?

An example of what I would play on my 8 tickets. 

1 2 3 4 5

6 7 8 9 10

11 12 13 14 15

16 17 18 19 20

21 22 23 24 25

26 27 28 29 30

31 32 33 34 35

1 2 3 4 36

There.....I covered every number with 8 tickets.

The numbers 4 and 22 above are $500.00 winners. Look and see if any of my 7 tickets above have the nuber 4 and the number 22. Yes. The first ticket and the fifth.

Am I missing something? Thanx.

Ah no, as you would soon find out when trying the strategy. The ezmatch numbers are randomly chosen by the terminal after you submit your numbers. They can all be like your first ticket example, no winning matches between played numbers and ezmatch numbers. As each ticket is printed independently there is no call to the terminal to assign 36 different ezmatch numbers, but it is charged with maintaining the posted odds, so it is more like playing a slot machine.  BobP

Never mind. I just found the problem. Each line is printed on separate tickets, with different ez numbers.

The above would only work if all 36 lines were to be printed on one ticket.

Sorry, I tried to delete this post, but for some reason I couldn't.

LOL ...as you were typing your answer I realized it. Thanx.

Sounds to me like a random new drawing every game, sort like a scratch off. Maybe the numbers are generated each draw, and they have to match the 5 numbers picked, but the ez match numbers are always different? Probaby fixed too being they are computer generated.

To cover every combo, I would have to spend:

36 tickets X 1-36 = $1296.00 Not profitable..... I think I need some sleep.

Good night....LOL

Don't worry, the lottery does strange things to your mind.
