The game is for the State of Oregon and is called Lucky Lines.
It consists of a grid like Tic Tac Toe, the center square is free and can be used for the diagonal lines, the center vertical, and the center horizontal rows and columns.
Each square has 4 possible numbers for a total of 32 used in the game. Each draw will choose one number in each of the 8 squares for a total of 8 drawn numbers. First square is 1-4. second 5-8 and so on and so forth through the 32 numbers.
I want to play a combination of tickets, some of these squares will have 3 of the 4 numbers in play, some 2 numbers and a couple just one number.
I'm pulling my hair out trying to figure out how many different tickets I will have to play to use all of these different combinations.
As an example: 2 numbers square 1
2 numbers square 2
2 numbers square 3
3 numbers square 4
Square 5 is the FREE square
1 number square 6
3 numbers square 7
1 number square 8
2 numbers square 9
How would I go about figuring the total number of tickets that I will need to play?
Thanks in advance all!
