I Think I Known the answer on this but I want to Make Sure!

I found a Post that Claims that!

Number 1 shows up most in winning number Jackpot combos!

I Would Like to test the Percentage of That Claim!

I Know that Percent means "out of 100"

50% means 50 per 100

25% means 25 per 100

I Just want to Make sure that when Calculating I am Dealing with Regular Math and not Lotto Math!



Think this:

There is a pick 6 lotto with 40 numbers organized in Lottoland.

Playing all odd numbers, means playing 50% of all the numbers.

Playing 50% of all numbers, does not mean that you have 50% of all chances to win the jackpot.

Solve this:

What is the chance for a 6/6 when playing all odd numbers in a full system?
