Hi

New here .....

Question about pool size ...

I play a 6/36 style game .... 1,947,792 combinations.

So that means 1,947,792 combo's to win a 100% coverage.

I've reduced my pool of combo's to around 400,000 combos

wins 75% coverage.

So if I've explained myself so everyone understands,

which is the better choice ?

Choosing from 1,947,792 combos which will have a chance

of winning in every draw or choosing from 400,000 combos

which will win in 3 out of 4 draws.

I've reduced my pool by 80% and reduced my possible

winning draw by 25%. I think the wiser play is to choose

from the smaller pool.


Any opinions on this ?


Thanks in advance

In a 6/36 Lotto game the Pool remains the same at 36 unique integers or identifiable balls for each draw. For a guaranteed Six win in each draw the cover required is C(36,6,6,6)=1,947,792. Everyone of the 1,947,792 possible combinations of six integers has an equal chance of being picked at each draw and this means the previous draw number can be repeated in the next draw as occurred recently in a 6/49 game in Bulgaria.

Lotto Draws have no relationship to one another; the integers serve just as identifiers. Any prediction calculation on one history of draws for a same type game is just as irrelevant as another.
