if the odds of getting all 6 numbers in your group if you pick, say, 20 numbers, are pretty descent, how about playing those same 20 numbers in well mixed combos, not split wheels, for an extended period of time? maybe say for a year or two. how would i do?

    You might do ok with that. Or with just quickpicks.

    A wheel is only going to work if you have the right numbers picked everytime to get at least 3of 5 or 4of 6 or jackpot if lined up right. Its your money. I would play those sets on a trail basics.

    UPGRADE your membership so you can use the wheel system and predict your number combos on here and give it a try.

    This is a fun place with very cool people on here. Ive made alot of friends on here. And if you need help theres always a helping hand around.

    Good Luck

          How many lines are you playing with 20 wheeled numbers? The total combinations for wheeling 6 numbers using 20, is 1 in 38,760.

            If you are playing a 6/49 game wheeling 20 numbers the odds of having all 6 winning numbers among the 20 is 1 in 360.

            If you go to http://www.lotto-logix.com/wheellinks.html there is a lottery odds calculator.   

            Drawn numbers: In this case 20 we're fooling the calculator to see the wheel as the amount of numbers drawn.

            Game size: 49, enter something different if your game is a different size.

            Matching: 6 numbers, what we're after but interesting to see chance of matching a smaller prize with the same wheel size.

            When we calculate the odds we get 1 in 360.77 so the odds aren't all that good considering you'd have to play the wheel 361 times for one shot at a jackpot having all six winning numbers among those you are playing.  Of course 1 in 361 is one heck of a lot better than 1 in 13.9 million and you can improve on that by picking winning numbers.  Most players make the mistake of picking losing numbers, don't do that!

              thank you for all the good advice. i'm playing 32 games with a wheel i got from BobP at lotto logix. 1 in 300 something sounds better than worse. i tried making my own wheels where all numbers touch each other at least once. takes time to do.
