In Western Canada there is something funny going on... I thought a double should hit about once every 10 draws, well twenty-one days into Dec. and doubles have hit in 10 of the 21 days. Doesn't this seem a little odd?

    I believe for a one draw per day state, once every 10 days is about right.  It's so unpredictable though (for me anyway)... anything can happen at any time.

    A few weeks ago Ohio had 9 doubles out of 12 draws.  It must be a trend, doubles have been really hot since November.  Learn to love doubles.

    It can be heart wrenching though when you've done hard work, you have the perfect single combo that you know is coming.... and then comes a double    Mad  Crying

      Yeah, it seems a little odd, but probably just means there's going to be an equal if not longer dry spell. 

      Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

      There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

        I think on average, doubles appear about 27% of the time.  However, you must realize that this is the end of the year & the state has to pull some of the doubles that it has been avoiding all year long.

          Would it seem odd if you flipped a coin and got heads 4 times in a row, or could it be easily explained by simple probability?

                you have one draw every day expect doubles to hit 1/3 of the month about 10 times more or less. you might get a run on doubles and then a run one singles but usually doubles come after a number with a zero in it or expect doubles to follow doubles.

                  Doubles average every 3 to 4 games in Western Canada, I can call them coming 80% of the time once they reset themselves. And yes expect a dryspell.

                    Doubles hit

                    11 times this month so far 30 day period
                    13 last month 30day period
                    07 times the previous month 30 day period 

                    total time doubles came out equals 31 times in 90 days so it's about 10 times a month.

                    you can do a count up if you check the results page and make notes for your yearly average.

                    without even looking at the past year 365 days id say doubles came out about 125 times give or take 10 times.
