I have decided to play only pick 5 (Fantasy 5) games.  What wheels would you suggest.  I am no longer buying quick picks.  So I have put some  funds aside  for my weekly plays.

Thanks,Mail For You

      Once you decide on size of the number pool you want to use and the guarantee you can afford, you can pick a wheel accordingly.

        How much are you looking to spend on tickets?  I have been playing a 4if5 of 7 wheel for the Cash 5 game here, it's only 3 tickets and has had some nice results.

            Is your Fantasy 5 game a 5/39 game?  If so, then don't wheel.  Spend $8 and play all 39 numbers (plus one number twice).  Then you will have won half the battle and all five winning numbers will be guaranteed to be on your $8 worth of tickets.  Of course, the other half of the battle is getting the winning numbers to all fall on one of those eight plays.  That's the tough part...

                time*treat - could you explain that again to a real dumba$$. I've been playing Cash 5 here in NC and doing mostly the computer picks, with no winning results at all. Not sure what all this "wheel'in" is.

                  Sure. A wheel is simply an organized way to arrange combinations of numbers to play. Some arrangements are more complex than others. Total number of combinations increases with total quantity of numbers. Taking six symbols in groups of five gives:

                  A,B,C,D,E - A,B,C,D,F - A,B,C,E,F

                  A,B,D,E,F - A,C,D,E,F - B,C,D,E,F

                  sub in your six numbers for the six symbols.
