Perhaps it came to him in a dream, or he paid big money to a fortune teller for a guaranteed winning number, or he adapted a winning the lottery system somehow. Or perhaps it's merely because M50 is from exponent
77232917, and
87232917 is not prime, and
8723291
3 is.
Prior assignments have expired. It won't allow me to reserve it as a PRP test. (Error 40.) I plan to test this one soon, and a couple other guesses of similarly shaky foundation. One lottery ticket is as good as another. Disproving such unsubstantiated claims is a bonus.
