Thanks mate so if I enter a 6/39 lottery and I have a wheel with a 3 if 6 guarantee. what happens if 20 numbers are drawn? What are my ods that i have all 6 in one of my lines? Just trying to understand it. Thanks.
A 6/39 lottery has 3,262,623 combinations, your odds of winning are the number of unique lines you are playing divided into 3,262,623.
A wheel (36,6,3,6) = roughy 85 lines so divide 3,263,623 by 85.
It is the same whether a 6/39 lottery draws 20 numbers offers a 20 number play or you fully wheel 20 numbers, the odds of having all six winning numbers among your lines would be 1 in 84.18 once you have all six winning numbers among the 20 you are in a sense playing a 6/20 lottery the odds of winning that are 1 in 38,760.
