for a 6 digit combination from number 1 to 49,
what is the chance to hit the jackpot, in terms of probability mathematically.

LOL, you have that game too????

I'm not very goot at probability stuff but I say if you play for only 6 numbers that would be 1/c(6, 49). c(6, 49) is "combinations of 6 numbers taken from a set of 49" (more about this here).
So I'd say it would be (1/1.39838*10^7)...
