This question is for anyone to answer, i would appreciate it.
i am wheeling 14 numbers out of 35 for a state lottery and the win guarantee is- if i get 5 numbers within my wheel group i win 1 ticket for a 3 number hit. because the minimum win isn't really much and i am trying to hit the 5 number win to get the first prize anyways. then would it be just as good to play a wheel that wheels 20 numbers, even though the win minimum is totally nothing and again i am looking for the first prize anyways.
the 14 # wheel=$14.00
the 20 # wheel=$8.00
again the win minimum is better on the 14 number wheel, but not that good. so should i take the extra 6 chances and just hope that every time we get all 5 in our group it matches on the ticket, or is there something that i am missing and that less number wheel might be better even though there is less numbers. yes i know the maximum possibility is better on the 14#wheel, but maybe the arrangement is different i don't know. It just seems to me that both wheels whatever it spits out for the numbers they both have the same chance to win evenly over the other.
