    The Toto Singapore lottery is a typical 6/49 game.  An additional ball is drawn from among those not drawn to improve lower prize tiers.

    In a 6/49 game the odds of 6 winning numbers falling among any group of 12 is 1 in 15,134.

    The odds of winning a 6/12 game are 1 in 924.  Divide by the number of unique lines purchased.

      What is unique about the two lines you play from the other 922 lines you could have picked using your twelve numbers?
