I am very new in lottery world and don't know much about wheeling etc.

I want to play 5 Nos. (pick 5) lottery. My 23 favourite numbers are:

4,7,8, 9,10,12,14,16,17,20,21,22,23,26,27,28,30,32,33,34,35,37,39.

I am not able to generate a wheel for above numbers, as I don't have any good software for pick 5 nos. I request esteemed memebers of this forum, to please provide me a minimum 3 and 4 guarantee's chart for the above numbers (least combinations will be much appreciated). Kindly also let me know what are the percentages of hitting the minimum guarantee. (Like: 3 if 5 - 100%, 3 if 4 - 90% etc.)

I will be very grateful for this and thanks a lot in advance.

Regards.

akk

        I hate to say it but I would choose a quick pick instead.

              akk100,

              The problem with your message is that you tried to highlight some text on the page, copy it, and then paste it into your message.  That does not work well, and I'd recommend against pasting text or graphics that you highlight on a page.  Instead, click the Quote button on the message you're replying to, so that you can easily include the text and name of the person you're replying to.

              In response to your question, there is no such thing as a 100% guarantee without doing a full wheel.  If you included 23 numbers in your wheel, it would be thousands of tickets.

              Instead of a 100% guarantee, you need to choose a guarantee of a smaller prize, like matching 2 or 3 numbers.  For example, if you used an abbreviated wheel using your 23 numbers, you could do a wheel of 28 combinations that guarantees a 2-match if 2 of the numbers drawn are within your set of 23.  Or, by playing 55 tickets, you could guarantee a 3-match if all of the numbers drawn are within your set of 23.

              If you'd like, I can send you one of those wheels with your numbers.

                Dear Todd,

                Thank you very much for your reply. I understood your suggestion.

                Kindly give me the wheel as you mentioned. It will be great if you give me a wheel accordingly. Or please give me 2 wheels, one for 2 if 2 (or 2 if 3) and other for 3 if 6 matches from my 23 numbers. Or if you think some particular abbreviated wheel is good for me, please suggest me.

                Please note that I can afford upto 28 tickets.

                Thank you very much again.

                Regards

                    akk100,
                    I use CoverMaster to create all kinds of lottery wheels and there is a link to get a free copy at:

                    http://www.lotto-logix.com/wheellinks.html

                    This program can check the coverage percent of the wheels it creates or any other wheels once they are loaded into the program.

                        AKK100, I also live in TN and have become interested in Lotto 5. I don't have a system for picking the numbers, but have noticed they're very close to the numbers found in Fantasy 5 in GA. Usually (not always) the very first Fantasy 5 number is dropped and replaced, and the numbers that follow (in Lotto 5) are either +1 or +2 or minus 1 or 2, but they're VERY similar. You  might want to give the Georgia Lottery website a look-see (Fantasy 5 results) and you'll see what I mean. It's very interesting. Good luck.

                            Thanks Ocean and Todd for the responses. As I told before, I am very new in the Lottery systems. But what Todd and other members advised me, were great help for me. I am using the abb.wheel which Todd gave me. Lets see if luck favours me. Also RJOh's advices seem to be very helpful for me.

                            Ocean, should I go to Georgia Lottery website ? Will it be helpful for me ?

                            Thanks a lot friends.

                            Regards
