I realize that the following scenario might sound strange but if someone has the answer it would be great. The scenario is as follows:
1. I choose the 100 latest draws from my lottery which already won the jackpot.
2. I pick 6 random draws from those 100
3. Each of these 6 draws contains one or more numbers, of the winning numbers of the next draw.
4. All 6 draws, have all the numbers of the next winning draw. What I mean is that if I choose 6 draws and all 6 draws have only number 2 included which will be one of the numbers in the following jackpot, it would be pointless.
What are the odds of trying once to pick out 6 such draws?
And what are the odds if I try 10 or 20 times to pick out these 6 draws?
If anyone could help it would be great. I tried doing the above in practice but it seems that I never seem to be able to pick 6 draws succesfully.
