Hello everyone,

First of all I wish everyone the best of luck, in their lottery endeavours.

I have been racking my little brain over this problem, I'll explain;


We all know the World Record for a pick 6/49 match 3 if 6 hit can be done in 163 lines; covermaster does this @ approximately 99.30% coverage (not optimized)


I would like to accomplish 99.30% coverage on a game which is a pick 5 /42 in less than 163 lines, match 3 if 5 hit. I would reasonable have deduced in my (non mathematical brain) that this would be relatively simple. But, covermaster does this feat in 379 lines. I am unable to comprehend this anomaly, considering that a pick 5/42 games odds are considerably lower the 6/49. 

Please forgive me if I sound like I am waffling.

In closing, I am trying to accomplish the lowest number of lines <163 for the pick 5/42 game, whilst using all of the numbers, and guarantee a match of 3 if 5 hit.

Any help will be most appreciated.

Kindest regards,


PS. The game I am trying to crack is the Polish Mini Lotto
