Welcome to the forum, GeeDee.

It's a math problem, though somewhat complex. It's also a system that is likely doomed to fail in the long run. The house edge on lotto is insanely high, so I don't think even multipliers on the lower numbers will save you in the long run..

An update.

Whilst I haven't received an answer to my question, I thought I would report that I’m still in profit of \$300 having entered all the roll down draws since my post except one which I missed as they’re not regular. They’re every two or three weeks on average with normal draws running twice a week.
Of course, sods law says the only one I missed happened to be the one which would have given me a decent win of nearly \$1,100 on 4 of my 15 balls (6 x 3 ball wins and 1 x 4 ball win) so somewhat frustrating.

On the basis my strategy seems to be working overall having run it for 2½ years with the same \$50 number set since my first post I’m thinking of upping my stake with a few more numbers and more multiples.

The difference between fiction and reality is that fiction is supposed to make sense.

Well, I did some simulation after finding a set of 25 tickets all with only the numbers from 1 to 15 where 353 of the 5005 possible sets of 3 numbers from 1 to 15 appear on at least one ticket, and I got:
At least one ticket has at least 3 numbers in the draw 1 out of every 7.4 draws
At least one ticket has at least 4 numbers in the draw 1 out of every 103 draws

Here are the 25 tickets:
 1 2 3 6 7 13 1 2 3 8 10 13 1 2 6 8 9 15 1 3 4 6 9 11 1 3 5 10 11 12 1 3 8 11 13 14 1 3 9 11 13 14 1 4 12 13 14 15 1 5 6 9 14 15 1 6 7 9 10 14 2 3 4 7 9 12 2 3 5 10 11 14 2 4 7 8 12 13 2 5 7 8 13 14 2 6 11 12 14 15 2 9 10 11 12 13 3 4 5 6 12 13 3 4 5 7 12 14 3 4 5 9 10 15 3 4 8 9 11 12 3 6 7 8 12 15 4 6 7 8 14 15 4 7 8 9 10 11 5 7 8 9 13 15 7 8 10 11 13 15
