In the Lottery Discussion Forum I posted that the 6 numbers that were drawn to win \$21 million didn't follow the "usual" patterns suggested by the people who write books and how to pick numbers since they are all odd numbers, etc.

The 6 numbers (out of a possible 53) are

1-3-13-25-31-39

I immediately noticed that 3 was very dominant and that the first 2 (1, 3) becomes the third number (13)  One number is 13 transposed (31)

Before I finished writing this post in Mystical, Raven pointed out on my other thread that the number 39  = 3 x 13.  I initially was looking at 39 as the number 3 because of "casting out nines" but what Raven noticed is even more interesting.

The only number I haven't been able to relate to "3" is the number 25.

You can probably can look at any lottery that way.  The numbers are from MegaMillions:

07/28/06  02 13 23 32 35    04
08/09/05  13 35 36 43 52    05
09/07/04  13 30 36 38 51    35
07/13/04  13 31 37 39 52    38
09/27/02  23 27 30 33 36    05

The 27 =2+7=9  and the 51 = 5+1=6

This is true, RJOh.  However, it's just something that really hit me when I looked at the results last night.    "3" just stood out.

Probably, a lot of people look at lottery numbers that way hoping to find something unique that only includes a small group of numbers and happens often enough that they can pick a winner, I know I do.  I've been looking at the last 177 MegaMillions drawings hoping to pick a winner for Tuesday drawing for a piece of that \$340M jackpot.
