Ive always wondered how many people out there play 1 2 3 4 5 6.  I know i try to keep my

numbers as random as possible so just incase I ever win there is a good chance its all mine

But how many ways do you think 1 2 3 4 5 6 would be split? Im sure it would easily be over 100 people.

    I would never play that set of numbers because the likely hood of it hitting is low.

          You probably have the same chance of hitting it then any other numbers.  I still would not choose to play that set of numbers.

              Many years ago when the Florida Lotto was real big, I believe I saw an article in the paper (might have been Lottery Players Magazine actually) after someone won that stated there were about 50,000 tickets sold with 1-2-3-4-5-6, and that the payout for those numbers hitting would have been a one time payment to each of around a $1,000.

              I don't think 5-10-15-20-25-30, etc are good to play either as many players like those kind of sequences also as well as odd and even number sets like 1-3-5-7-9-11,  3-5-7-9-11-13, etc.  2-4-6-8-10-12, 4-6-8-10-12-14, and on up, etc.  There would probably be a lot of winners for these combinations also.  Any set of numbers whould have as good a chance as any other of winning, but it is rare to see 4 consecutive numbers. let alone 5 or 6.  It is just very hard to pick the numbers for these games, but we don't see that our picks are probably just as ridiculous looking as those above which look so surreal.  Lottobrain

                Agreed.  1-2-3-4-5-6 is as likely as any other, single combination.  Unless you have a theory on ball drawings about which order they're dropped into the mixing machine, how long they're mixed, etc.
