Palindrome exercise

Tell us what’s happening:
Hey guys, could you please tell me why this is not the right way to do it, the code seems logical.

Your code so far

function palindrome (str) {
   if (str === palindrome)      { 
  return true;
   } else {
  return false;

Link to the challenge:

JavaScript doesn’t understand what a palindrome is, you can’t just ask it if something is a palindrome.

function lotteryNumbers() {
  return lotteryNumbers;

You have a bit more thinking to do with your solution. Above you compare str to palindrome to see if they are equal. The problem is, palindrome is a function, so the if statement will always return false. You need to create another variable which represents the reversed alphanumeric version of str and then compare it to str.
