OK, who are the math wizards?

There are 37 different 'quests'
24 spots in 5 row/columns

The program randomly picks 24 quests, then fills in your card left to right, top to bottom. So that's 24 of 37 choices. You will not see a repeated quest on your board, though there are some quests that are similar, but trust me they are not repeated.

The draws are more random.
It randomly draws a letter B.I.N.G.O. then one of the 37 quests to get a combination. Letter:Quest


So what is the chance of any one random Column/Quest combination being drawn given the 24 of 37 possible quests on your card, randomly placed?

How many possible different cards?
