Full Lottery Wheels
A Full Wheel is simply a generator of all the possible combinations of a set of numbers into group of n numbers,
where n is usually the game number (the number of numbers played in the game). For 6/49 lotto, n is 6. Since all the
combinations of the set are played, a full wheel guarantees a winning equal to how many of the numbers in the set are winning
numbers; if all the winning numbers are in the set then it guarantees a jackpot (and several lower prizes as well).
For example, if you play 10 numbers with a full wheel in a 6number game, and if 5 of the 6 winning numbers coincide
with 5 of your 10 favorite, then you will be guaranteed a 5of6 winner. In fact you'll have 5 ticket of 5of6 winner,
50 tickets of 4of6 winners, and 100 tickets of 3of6 winners.
The drawback of a full wheel is that the number of combinations generated are too many, thus too
expensive. For example, all the possible 6number combinations of a set of 10 numbers
is 210; for a set of 20 numbers it is 38,760. The following calculator will help you figure out the
number of plays generated by a full wheel.
Full Wheel Combinations Calculator  Usage 

Enter the values of n and N and then 'Calculate'
n = How many numbers are selected in the game,
N = How many favorite numbers you have
To wheel 10 numbers for a 6number game, n = 6 and N = 10.

Note that we have full wheels for every US lottery game, just select your state, then select the game
you are interested in then choose 'Combinations Generator' or 'Full Wheel' from the menu.

Full Lottery Wheel with Fixed Numbers
The full Wheel with fixed numbers is similar to the above full wheel except that some of the numbers are fixed.
Fixing some numbers means that those numbers will appear in all the generated lottery tickets, and thus
reducing the number of plays generated. The guaranteed wins in this case are
equal to the sum of winning fixed numbers and the winning other selections.
The number of tickets generated will depend on how many numbers are fixed. For example, for 6number combinations of a set of
10 numbers where three of them are fixed, there will be 35 combinations; for a set of 20 numbers with 3 fixed there will be only 680.
Notice how the cost of playing the combinations is significantly reduced, but at the cost of reduced chance of winning. Also, notice
that if the fixed numbers are not winners, the chance of winning anything will be slim. The following calculator will help you figure out the
number of plays generated by a full wheel with fixed numbers.
Full Wheel with Fixed Numbers Combinations Calculator  Usage 

Enter the values of n, N, and F and then 'Calculate'
n = How many numbers are selected in the game,
N = How many favorite numbers you have
F = How many to fix from the N favorite numbers
To wheel 10 numbers with 3 fixed for a 6number game, n = 6, N = 10, and F = 3.

Note that the full wheels that we have for every US lottery game, also have the option of fixing some
numbers. Just select your state, then select the game
you are interested in then choose 'Combinations Generator' or 'Full Wheel' from the menu.
