Something seems wrong with that math. I had to check the rules, it says there's 5 numbers 1-56 and a mega-number 1-46.

56*55*54*53*52*41 = 18,793,494,720
(subtracting 1 from each multiplier since you can't use the same number twice).

Am I doing something wrong?

I don't play, but I don't think you need to pick the numbers in order. Your formula is assuming you need to pick the right numbers in the right order. That would make it much harder, not that it's not already hard enough.
