Repeat Answer!? from #4

With a Maximum Selection of 21 Groups of 6 Balls (Using the Best 21 Balls) Which equals 21 Tickets at 1 Pound or 1 Euro Etc. Per Ticket.

There is no reason to prefer one ticket over any other. There is no maximum ticket.

But there is a Mathematical Way of Improving your Chances when Buying 21 Tickets and Arranging them in an Optimal Way!

That is What this Thread is about! Now Who is the Lucky Brainy One that can Find it!

I do not agree. If you think you have a solution then post it.

Of course that result can be rigorously obtained, but who cares?

Combinatorics is Algebra and Algebra is Combinatorics.
