I think playing 15 numbers around for 6/49, with probable 3-4 winning numbers,the best investment would be around 10-60 dollars.

What is your idea?And please support your point with some figure.

    Hard to know without knowing if the 4/6 prize is much greater than the 3/6.

    In my state 6/48, a 3/6 match pays $3, while 4/6 pays about $40

    Using your 2 choices, to cover your costs, at least

    • 4 of your 10 tickets (40%) would have to match 3 of 6 OR
    • 2 of your 60 tickests (3.3%) would have to match 4 of 6 

     in theory, the max wins are

    10 3-match = $30.00 win - $10.00 cost = $20.00

    60 4-match = $2,400 win - $60.00 cost = $2,340

    Writing it out, I'd say 3% is a shorter hurdle to jump.

      I would recommend the following wheel . . .

       1  2  3  4  5  6
       1  2  3  7  8  9
       1  2  3 10 11 12
       1  2  3 13 14 15
       4  5  6  7  8  9
       4  5  6 10 11 12
       4  5  6 13 14 15
       7  8  9 10 11 12
       7  8  9 13 14 15
      10 11 12 13 14 15

      01-02-03 | 04-05-06 | 07-08-09 | 10-11-12 | 13-14-15


      Exchange my place holder pointer numbers with your best picks. Pay attention to the blocks of 3 numbers because if you get any two blocks correct it's an automatic jackpot.  If you get five winning numbers in the first or last 9 numbers or six winning numbers in the first or last 12 numbers a 4# prize is guaranteed. Overall the wheel guarantees 3if6in15 numbers 10 lines.
