Thank you KY Floyd, I don't know how you and the others get your statistics, but I appreciate being able to read them every now and then.

    Repeats are here, there and everywhere.  Have you noticed that repeats are strong lately?  I have and it hasn't peaked yet.  What it means I have no idea yet.  It could be a just a ''condition'' or leading up to something big.  Time will tell.  Seems like its global now, so whatever it really means we should know soon.

          I remember when I first moved to Maryland for job transfer back in 1988, I was playing lottery for the first time, having come from VA where lottery did not yet exist. I was near the DE state line, so I also played DE Lotto. I got my first computer at that time and my first lottery program.  The program had the stats for several state lotteries and while I was studying the draws for DE, I discovered that my printout showed the same numbers in about 2 weeks for a draw.  Back then I think the DE lotto was 6/30.  I thought I must have a mistake, so I went to a store that I knew had a record of all the draws and checked.  Sure enough, the numbers were correct and had repeated twice.  I also was subscribing to the "Lottery Players" magazine at the time and remember reading a story in there where the same lotto numbers had repeated about a year apart in NJ and that a woman had hit both times.  She continued to play her numbers even though she had won.  I believe that a lot of players play the same numbers back again in the 3 and 4 digit and lotto also.  In fact I've heard players calling out the same 3 digit number at night that had just hit during the day. I don't know if that is profitable in a long term basis, but then again I don't think triples are profitable in a long term basis, but players keep playing them day after day.

              The Bulgarian authorities have ordered an investigation after the same six numbers were drawn in two consecutive rounds of the national lottery.

              I guess an investigation over there have about the same effect as one does here.

                now  what about 3 draws in a row with the  same numbers.  odds of that?    The  one who said getting twice in a row is 1 in 5 million is a bit wrong , you have to multiply  1/5,000,000 and 1/5,000,000

                  You'd only multiply the odds if you wanted to know the odds of a specific number being drawn twice in a row. When the first drawing happens it's going to result in some number being drawn. The chance of that number being drawn again in the following drawing is then 1 in 5 million (or whatever the odds for the game are; this one is somewhere around 1 in 14 million).
