In a 6/40 lotto game, where you pick 6 numbers from a pool of 40, the probability of winning the jackpot with a single ticket is approximately 1 in 3.83 million.

However, if you wheel 7 numbers in the 6/40 lotto game, there are different types of wheels you could use, and the probability of winning the jackpot would depend on the specific wheel you choose. One common type of wheel is a “7 if 6” wheel, which guarantees that you will match at least 6 of your 7 numbers if the 6 winning numbers are among the 7 you chose.

Using a “7 if 6” wheel, the probability of winning the jackpot with 7 numbers in a 6/40 lotto game would be approximately 1 in 646,200.

It’s important to note that while using a wheeling system can increase your chances of winning, it does not guarantee a win, and the odds of winning are still relatively low. Additionally, wheeling systems can be more expensive to play, since you are essentially playing multiple tickets at once.

I am not exactly sure how this lotto works. But if you are asking for the probability of choosing a particular combination of seven numbers out of 40 without regard to order, it is 1 divided by 18,643,560.

This is because there are 18,643,560 ways to choose any combination of seven numbers out of 40, calculated as:

40C7 = 40! / [33! X 7!] = 18,643,560
