Analysis of Potential Win Groupings for Pick 6, Pool 49 Lotto
Playing 30 Line Cover C(14,6,4,5)=30
or Wheel with Guarantee, 4 if 5 in 14
by Colin Fairbrother
This Cover or Wheel with Guarantee is listed as Number 35 by Professor Iliya Bluscov and Number 507 by Gail Howard, albeit slightly better in their way of ranking these things. You see the coverist way of looking at it is that it doesn't matter how distorted you make the set with regard to yield as long as the number of lines, blocks or combinations is less, then it is better. The fact that from all the possible 13,983,816 winning combinations only 21% will give a prize compared to 46% with my best Unique 3's ™ using the full pool and with coverage maximized is simply not acknowledged. Truly one can describe Covers or Wheels like this to be the best of the worst and their advocates for use in Lotto to be none other than con-artists.
This is ranked Set 7 in an analysis comparison of 15 differenty 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.
