Hi Im knew to your forum

Hope this is the right place for this thread. Just a quick question

as in the subject I use this wheel alot but it is time consuming to

do all of those tickets so would it be wise to drop the first 100 and the last 100

to save time as  well save some money but in the process I know it means dropping some cash prizes.

Cheers.

    If you have used the wheel a lot then you should know if it worth reducing it to save money or time.  Maybe you should look in some software to make out your tickets.  Good luck.

      If you remove even one combination from a 100% (20,6,5,6)=844 wheel the guarantee is no longer 100%.

      The trouble with removing a line is generally you don't know how much it contributes to the whole of the coverage.  If you watch a wheel being built in CoverMaster the early lines provide the bulk of the coverage whereas toward the end it may take dozens of lines to close the final 1%. 

      Either build a wheel to say 90% or even 99% so it has most of the strongest internal support or use a wheel that instead of guaranteeing a single five number prize provides a guarantee of multiple four number prizes with a high percentage of a five number prize.

      The important thing is to know exactly what you are giving up when you toss out a line to save a buck.

        He might be able to evaluate his wheel using CoverMaster and reduce it and still have 90% or better coverage.
