25. You can have the machine generate the numbers for you.

That would certainly speed things up, but considering it draws them randomly, you'd have no way of knowing whether or not it picked all the combinations (ie, no repeats).

In fact, the probability that it would are exceedingly small - MUCH SMALLER than the probability of you winning on a single ticket.

Interesting thought experiment, however.
