Analysis of Potential Win Groupings for Pick 6, Pool 49 Lotto
Playing 30 Line Cover C(9,6,5,5)=30
or Wheel with Guarantee, 5 if 5 in 9
by Colin Fairbrother
Since the 1980's Covers or Wheels with Guarantees have been promoted as being beneficial to Lotto players. The facts are they disadvantage you in winning the secondary prizes in the short run which is the the way most people play Lotto. The reason for this is the high repetition of the sub set Threes, Fours and Fives and limiting the integers used. Most of the nonsense and con-artist claims in this field of interest are based on Covers which as can be seen from the table and chart are woefully inferior.
This is Set 3 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
