help for bingo game

Hello everyone , I have to handle the mathematical part of a game similar to bingo / keno .
There are 48 numbers total .
It is extracted only 35 .
players choose a minimum of 6 and maximum of 10 numbers .
to win you have to guess a minimum of 6 numbers.

I have to make sure that the winnings do not exceed 95% of the player total .
in the case in which the winnings exceed 100 % of the player total , I have to find the 35 numbers to be extracted so that the winnings are zero or the minimum possible .

tips ?
thank you so much

If a player wins, how much do they win?

every number drawn has a fixed odds, the first 5 have zero odds, the sixth issue onwards , the odds ranging from 10,000 to 1 .
The win is calculated by multiplying the amount wagered for the odds last number drawn between the numbers played .

I doubt that your question can be answered without knowing more. Also, choosing the 35 numbers so as to minimize the total won is contrary to the spirit of Bingo.

BINGO!
=====
The number-caller announced: under the G...n!
Gertrude, Josephine and Waltzing Mathilda all yelled "BINGO!".
Happens that all 3 filled the top line of their bingo cards.
The 15 numbers are all odd, plus numbers under each letter
are like this:

B: > 10 and none equal
I: < 20
N: > 40 and none equal
G: > 50 (and all equal!)
O: > 70 and none equal

I ask you: what is the n the number-caller announced with the G ?
You reply: can't tell; gimme a clue.

I then say unto you: well, make S the sum of the 15 numbers;
the sum of S's digits is equal to this digit here.
You reply: that's nice; but need another clue.

I then generously clue you again: well, now make S the sum of the
3 numbers under I; the sum of S's digits is equal to this digit here.
And you triumphantly announce: GOTTIT!
What was the "n" under the G ?
