How can you be guaranteed to win the lottery? Using a balanced lotto wheel can give you a minimum win guarantee that not other strategy can offer. Minimum win guarantee is the smallest prize you are guaranteed to win if you meet the winning number requirements of the wheel. The minimum win guarantee determines the number of combinations in the wheeling system you choose. The larger the guarantee, the bigger the wheel will have to be for the same set of numbers.

For example, if the minimum win guarantee of a 12 number pick 5 wheel is 3/5, then you are guaranteed a 3 number prize win if all 5 winning numbers are in the set of 12 you selected (and if you bought one ticket for each and every combination the wheel created). Or, a 3/4 pick-6 wheel means if you get at least 4 of the 6 winning numbers in the set you chose, you'll get at least one 3 number win.

A full wheel will always have a guarantee of a jackpot if you get all the winning numbers in your wheel (unless filters are added or you do not buy every combination created by the wheel). A pick-6 full wheel would have a minimum win guarantee of 6/6 or a pick-5 would have a guarantee of 5/5.

Our Balanced Wheeling software and books offer wheels with a variety of win guarantees, so you have more options to choose from. Wheel Five Gold, for example, has wheels with the following win guarantees: 2/5, 2/4, 2/3, 2/2, 3/5, 3/4, 3/3, 4/5, 4/4, and 5/5.
