ODDS:

59 white – 39 red = 195,249,054 - Standard US Powerball Game, 1 in every 195,249,054

50 - 25 = 52,969,000

40 - 15 = 9,870,120

30 - 10 = 1,425,060

25 - 10 = 531,300

20 - 8 =  124,032     - Default Odds, 1 in every 124,032

20 - 5 =  77,520

15 - 5 =  15,015

10 - 5 =  1,260

Calculation:

n = # of white ball possible

k = # white balls (5)

r = # of red balls possible

COMBIN(n, k) * r

COMBIN(N,K) is equal to: FACT(N) / (FACT(K) * FACT(N-K)

FACT on a calculator is usually N!

Payout:

Profit: Total gold generated from purchasing tickets and entries during that particular game. Can be accessed via PowerBallGame.cs

Jackpot: ( Profit / 2 ) /  # of jackpot winners

PowerBall:  500; this is on top of any 3 or 4 white match tickets, or by itself

3 White Matches: ( Profit / 50 ) / # of tickets with 3 matches

4 White Matches: ( Profit / 20 ) / # of tickets with 4 matches

5 White Matches: ( Profit / 10 ) / # of tickets with 5 matches

With this system, the payouts should be pretty good as long as there are a lot of tickets/entries being bought.  Not including any standalone powerball winnings, the payout should be roughly 67% of the total profit taken in for that particular game.  Each time a game goes without a Jackpot, the profit will continue to increase.
