im looking forward to the day that 6 numbers drawn match 6 on one of my lines.

ea to their own, i do like the days some patterns are drawn like the 5 10 15 25 30 or what ever was drawn here.

and the winners got $6k ea instead of the usual share of $1 mill, 40 winners that week, still more than I got

savagegoose,

You have just focused some light on the ONE lottery strategy that actually DOES have potential to increase your individual winnings.  I.E., in parimutuel games, always select numbers that are the LEAST LIKELY to be chosen by others.  Which is good reason to get your numbers from the RNGs here at LP, or at http://www.random.org .

    I Agree! and the odds of any previous combination been drawn again is the same as any other combo being drawn; 265 million to 1.

    You dropped the decimal point, so it's 2.65, not 265, but that's still for any one specific drawing to match another specific drawing. I don't know whether this game has drawings one a week or twice a week, but  since that set of numbers was first drawn there would have been at least 4 drawings, so the chances of those numbers coming up again would be 4 in 2.65 million, or 1 in 662,500. Further, the last drawing could also have matched either of the 2 previos drawings, so that makes 6 chances in 2.65 million, or 1 in 441,667 to have matched a drawing from the previous month

    Of course any one drawing could have matched any other drawing any time since the lottery started, so there have been many more chances for a repeat in a similar time frame. Apparently, the "experts" that are  found by reporters covering lottery stories never actually understand reality, and only understand how to square the basic odds of the game.

      quote> "Israeli lottery has produced the same 6 main numbers twice in four weeks.

      Strangely this is NOT the only occurrence ...
      It also happened in the Bulgarian lottery in 2009 when the same
      6 numbers were drawn in 2 consecutive weeks live on tv.
