Playing 28 Repeat Threes in a Pick 6, Pool 49 Lotto game -
Analysis of Potential Win Groupings

by Colin Fairbrother
Despite repeating a subset Three 28 times and giving away 3 combinations this set still does better than the Cover or Wheel with Guarantee which gives a Four win if you have 5 integers correct in a Pool of 14. No one in their right mind would play this set; how can the "experts" promote this pitiful Cover as being of benefit in playing Lotto?
This is ranked Set 8 in an analysis comparison of 15 differently constructed sets of numbers to play which includes other subset repeats, Covers or Wheels with Guarantees, Random Selections and the set which is proven to be the best, my Unique 3's ™ using all the integers for the game and maximizing the coverage of the potential winning numbers. You can generate these best numbers online and save them for later checking for wins at LottoToWin
There are 53 Prize Groupings for this set; the table below reduces this to 15 by giving the main prize grouping and giving a range for the lesser prizes. eg Of the 204,588 prize groups with a single Four win 9,078 have no other prizes.
