Maybe I just don't understand this wheeling system.  I thought if I matched up 4 numbers out of the 20 wheeled I would have 4 matching numbers.  I tested this system several times using for example the following numbers: 1,2,4,6,12,13,14,16,19,22,26,28,29,30,31,33,34,36,38,40 (16 is key #)

If the winning numbers were 1,2,4,6,20, with 1,2,4,6 being in the set of 20 numbers I wheeled, they never show up..... that would have cost \$258 to play...... what's the deal with this system.  Again, maybe I just don't understand the system....... Anyone have any thoughts?

Abbreviated Wheels: Do not cover all possible combinations, but guarantees at least one winning ticket if a certain amount of numbers drawn fall within your wheeled number set.

Key Wheels: Work like an Abbreviated Wheel, except that each ticket will contain your key number.

Input: 6, 1, 2, 4, 16, 12, 13, 14, 19, 22, 26, 28, 29, 30, 31, 33, 34, 36, 38, 40

1. 01-02-04-06-28

It would appear that the Key Number is considered part of the 4 if 4 guarantee, so unless the Key Number is one of the Drawn Numbers the Wheel is actually a 3 if 4 guarantee.

A mind once stretched by a new idea never returns to its original dimensions!

Greatly appreciated!  I thought the key number had something to do with it, but wasn't sure.  Thanks for the info.
