How are the odds calculated, I will use TN Cash 4 for an example

(Exact Order )Play 4 digits in exact order. 1 way to win.
(Odds - 1:10,000)

I understand this odd, because there are 10,000 total different combinations to choose from in this game.

 

What about 24-Way exact/any order

24-Way Exact/Any Order:
Play 4 unique digits, exact & any order.
24 ways to win.
(Odds - 1:417) , does this mean there are only 417 ways to achieve a 24-way any order?

    There are:
    010 possible 01-way boxed combinations
    090 possible 04-way boxed combinations
    045 possible 06-way boxed combinations
    360 possible 12-way boxed combinations
    210 possible 24-way boxed combinations
    =============================
    715 possible boxed combinations
