For any one who believes that the "it'll never happen" situation truly will never happen in a lottery game ... and further proof that all numbers have an equally likely chance of being drawn.

 

These are the numbers drawn for the Monday 8/24/09 MegaBucks lottery in Oregon

27-44-45-46-47-48  ..... 6 high numbers with a run of 5 consecutive numbers :)

    Good catch!   Remember it's much easier to get 5 then 6 consecutive.

    Out of 12,271,512 total combinations 1,806 are 5 consecutive and only 43 are 6 consecutive.  We now have to wait out about 6794 draws for it to happen again.   It's not impossible it won't happen again in the next draw, but that's not the way to bet.

      When I get numbers like that I always think, if I win I will be the only winner and won't have to split.

      Yeah I've seen numbers like that and they came from rolling balls, not computerized drawings.

        you are right,

        a couple of weeks ago in texas cash 5, the winning numbers were 12-13-14-24-25, two sets of consecutive numbers.

        Now the sad part, with the workout system I use and then wheeling i had this combination but cut it from my list because i figured there was no way!

        now, don't i feel like a Jack-in-the-Box

          Actually, markp1950, the Oregon MegaBucks game is a computerized game. Sad to say the only "ball" game in Oregon is Powerball.

            Another Gail Howard "never" rule bites the dust.

            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'd suggest that the only rule Gail Howard can really count on is that a fool and his money are soon parted. How else does she continue to make a living offering lottery advice?

                ky floyd:

                not taking up for Gail, but someone bought me her lotto 5 book last christmas and one of her wheels is what came up with that crazy combination above, so if i would have played it, i could've thanked ole gail for $20,000 or so that night.

                    There have been lots on winners with Gail Howards programs.  I hit in Virginia using it on the Fantasy five game.  So don't knock her.  She doesn't pick your numbers, you do.

                    She will tell you to play with your head not your wallet.  Don't spend more than you have. 

                    The winner that won 45 million here in Texas just spent $35 dollars a week for four years. Then hit big.  Just be consistant.

                        Texas Joey,

                        I have a booklet on lotto and part of it is a list of of "nevers" (never play these) by Gail Howard.  Consecutive numbers is one of the nevers.

                        It only takes about any given ten days on the forums here at LP to see almost her entire list to be baloney. "Never play all odds, never play all evens, never play all highs, never play all lows", etc...

                        The only real solid information in it is if you play 1,2,3,4,5,6 you're going to split the jackpot a lot of ways if it hits, and make one of your numbers over 31 because so many people play birthdays.

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

                          While in 6/49 each and every combination always has a 1 in 13,983,816 chance of being drawn, it can be shown statistically that certain types of combinations are significantly more likely to occur when compared to other types in direct proportion to their populations.

                          The best answer to, "What should I play tomorrow?" Is almost always what's more likely to occur stacked with all the other more likely to occur types until the answer is narrowed down to something useful.  Even when odds are brought down to equal Pick-3/4 it's tough to win, luck remains a huge factor.

                          BTW: I'd never say never to playing long shots when the time is right.
