Match 2

Matching two key numbers from (1,2,3,4,5) will ensure you win 2 free tickets. Matching just one of (1,2,3,4,5) and one of (6,7) will ensure you win 1 free ticket. Since the combination of (6,7) requires an extra line, it does not appear on this ticket set.

Risk Factor

The gamble here is not really about money, as it’s only a 2-line ticket, but the risk of prize loss should (6,7) be drawn over your key numbers (1,2,3,4,5).

Unfortunately, there’s is no cheap guarantee upgrade as 3if3 coverage requires double the cost with a 4-line-ticket.

Break-Even

Since there is no guarantee beyond a single 3if3 with this wheel, matching some of all of your key numbers (1,2,3) will dictate the amount of prize money you will win.

The line cost, however, is quite cheap and if you’re able to match all of your key numbers, your wins can be few and far between while still being profitable.

  • Match 3 = $10: every 4-9 draws… or
  • Match 4 = $50: every 10-50 draws… or
  • Match 5 = $500 : every 50-500 draws

Wheeling System Summary

The fact that you can box out 7 numbers quite cheaply and win multiple prizes makes this an ticket set an interesting bet.

In general, this low-cost ticket can be played on lottery, but will be much more profitable if you Match 4 prize is near 50x.

  • 10x prize for Match 3 → $10 prize / $1 ticket
  • 50x prize for Match 4 → $50 prize / $1 ticket
  • 50x prize for Match 5 → $500 prize / $1 ticket
