Doing some quick programming, came up with the following:

In a 5/55 matrix there are 3,478,761 combinations.
In those 3,478,761 combinations, 1,129,701 combinations will contain at least two consecutive numbers.

That number includes those with more than two consecutive numbers and also those which contain two sets of two or more consecutive numbers.

Example: 01-02-05-06-07 is counted only once.

 Pick 5 part consecutive by count break down Index 0 1 2 3 4 Type none 2 3 4 5 Powerball 2349060 999600 124950 5100 51 Mega Millions 2598960 1082900 132600 5304 52

keep in mind this is just an 'at least' break down, meaning there is at least that quantity consecutive numbers. there is also a more complex table that relates to the possibility of multiple consecutives in a single draw. ( i.e. - 01 02 20 21 40, there are two of type 2 consecutives and 01 02 03 20 21, there are one of type 2 and one of type 3 consecutives.)

Also, this table and the previous % table are applicable to Quick Picks as well. So, check you tickets, if you are getting a disproportionate number of consecutives in your Quick Picks, I'd be a little suspicious... hint-hint.

Here is a good one for you,

Go to the PB website and search the last numbers drawn on 4/5/08, which were-  (12-27-30-37-47 )and you will find that 4 of these numbers repeat  (12-27-30-37-49 )  and on 8/11/07 numbers were-  (1-10-11-37-40)  then on  10/20/07 numbers were (10-11-37-40-54)   Since the lottery admited about 6 numbers that have repeated which is on my blog,  if things are controlled,  keep an eye on the number results and you might be seeing 5 numbers that repeat?   I believe that because of the weight of the balls or maybe malfunction at times there are sets of number patterns that repeat.

Yes, four of those numbers 'repeated' - TEN years ago !    Back when the matrix was 49 numbers. This is another statistic I looked at, and have deemed it unusable - but if you want to play entire sets of repeat numbers - be my guest.  Remember - the game is random, you have just as likely a chance at winning as any other set of numbers, the question is, will you ?

I have tracked this, and as I said, I deem it unusable, because I see instances where 3 of the 5 numbers have hit up to nine times in prior games since I started looking at this in January 2006, but I have seen more hits of ZERO times than nine times.

The AVERAGE number of 3x5 hits seems to be <4 times - lots of zero times, 1, 2, 3, and some 4 and 5, 6 times, and even a few 7-8-9 times. One I have down for 10 times, but only one (5-9-14-45-48).

And like every other theory, you still have to know WHEN to play WHAT numbers.

TIME*TREAT - you are fairly correct - when I see a 'pattern' such as consecutive numbers hit, I know NOT to play any consecutive numbers for a few games.
