When I check the Florida winning numbers I often notice that one, two or even three of the same numbers are drawn on the same day for different games.  The lottery is supposed to be completely random, but I just checked yesterday's numbers and noticed "18" has a strong presence on the home page of the FL site when you look at the winning numbers across the board:

10 & 18 were picked Sat for the $42M Lotto Game

10 & 18 were also picked for the Fant 5 last night

18 was not only one the 4 MegaMoney numbers, but also the Mega Ball on Tues

The Cash 3 winning numbers for Tues are 594 which total 18.

 

I first began to post this in the Mathematical Forum, but this really isn't about mathematics. 

 

Just looking for comments, feedback.

    This is interesting and this is one of the reasons I like this forum so much.

    There is always someone "thinking" while my brian in on "stop"

    I had not looked at the sum 18 in FL and you have surely brought it to light, I will sit back and watch the replies to this thread.

      Isn't there something about giving monetary gifts in amounts of 18 or multiples of 18, the idea being that 18 or a number divisible by 18 (and this the gift) will perpetuate itself or at least not be a one time thing?

      In numerology, 8 is the number of abundance, 1 is 'we are all one'.

      Might be interesting to Google.  

      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.

        From Wikipedia:

        In religion and literature

        • The Hebrew word for "life" is ?? (chai), which has a numerical value of 18. Consequently, the custom has arisen in Jewish circles to give donations and monetary gifts in multiples of 18 as an expression of blessing for long life.
        • Joseph Heller's novel Catch-22 was originally named Catch-18 because of the Hebrew meaning of the number, but was amended to the published title to avoid confusion with another war novel, Mila 18 [1].

         

         As lucky or unlucky number

        • In Chinese tradition, the number 18, normally ?? (shí ba), can also be read as ?? (yao ba), which sounds like ?? (yào fa), meaning that one is going to prosper. Thus, building floors numbered "18" are often very expensive in China[citation needed]

              FYI on the 18th-

               A wee bit back lads and lassies, a discussion among the board at St Andrew's Country Cluc in 1858, a senior member pointed out that it takes exactly 18 shots to polish off a fifth of Scotch. By limiting himself to only one shot per hole, the Scot calculated a round of golf was finished when the Scotch ran out.

              Think of the promotional possibilities for these new resorts, include a fifth of Scotch with every round and when 18 holes finished the suckers will be all tuned up and ready for casino action.  Smile

              And while you were reading this message for the last minute we find the average number of breathing of the man per minute is eighteen! Wink

                Thanks everyone for your comments.  Wish I had this much knowledge 2 nights ago.  I might have a few more dollars in my pocket!

                  Hi Jux-

                   "....noticed "18" has a strong presence ...." ~J

                  FYI, Numerlogically speaking,  the powerful Number 18 has been found to be an above the odds repeater in lotto, keno and roulette.

                  And by the by this year the audicious Chinese Lina New Year of the Pig is February 18th!

                   

                  Good Luck, see you on the 18th,

                  eddessaknight Smile
