Analysis of Potential Win Groupings for Pick 6, Pool 49 Lotto
Playing 31 Line Cover C(15,6,3,3)=31
or Wheel with Guarantee, 3 if 3 in 15
by Colin Fairbrother
With 74% of the possible winning combinations giving zilch compared to only 54% for my best set why would anyone play this? Looking at the repeats table we see 14 of the Fours are squandered by repetition and the Threes are abominable with 98 repeated twice, 3 trice, 19 quadrupled and 1 repeated 5 times.
This is ranked Set 9 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
