there are 6 numbers chosen and 15 possibilities for each, so by the counting principle there are \(15^6\) equally likely outcomes

you pick six, and assuming order does not matter there are \(6!\) ways to arrange them

so your probability of winning on any one ticket is \[\frac{6!}{15^6}\] and if you do it fifty time i guess you have fifty time the chance of winning
