Digits repeat by straight position from last to next draw 1/10th of the time average, so on 100 draws there will be 10 repeats by each straight position and about 30 repeats by all 3 straight positions.
This is because there are 10 possible digits from 0 to 9 by position and each digit has the same 1/10 % chance of being next to come out by straight position.
By boxed position this should multiply I guess by 3 as there are 3 positions.
If a 0 has a 1/10 % chance to come out next on position 1, it also has the exact same chance to come out on position 2 and also the same on position 3.
So 1/10 + 1/10 + 1/10 = 3/10 % to come out on any of the 3 positions.
So then any digit of the 10 from 0 to 9 has or should have on the long run an average of a 3/10 chance to come out on any one of the 3 positions.
As the digits and or the balls have no memory this might also apply to digits from last to next draw.
LotSoft gives this info also:
|# digits||Times||Cur. skip||Av. skip||Med. skip||Max. skip|
Take a look at the average skip.
