                  As more numbers make up a drawing and as the number pool grows, it gets easier to have combos that contain consecutives than combos that don't. Cool

                      Consecutive numbers come up quite frequently.
                      Another one to check out is last digits.
                      Also repeat numbers.

                      Is this random?  For you to decide. 
                      (. . . . if you believe in randomness...... this has been discussed before.)

                      For me, it's a profile that's part of the lottery draw.

                        It is a common occurence happens about 35% over the course of the year to both games.

                         

                        By the way, the consecutive numers of 39,40 have occured 9 times in the last 482 draws.

                        Highest to date

                          As more numbers make up a drawing and as the number pool grows, it gets easier to have combos that contain consecutives than combos that don't. Cool

                          It may get "easier" but it doesn't get more likely. As the number pool gets bigger there are more combinations with consecutive numbers, but there are also more combinations without them, and it's the combinations without that increase faster. That means that consecutive numbers are less likely as the size of the matrix  increases. Drawing more numbers obviously increases the chances for consecutive numbers, since each number drawn is another chance to have a consecutive number.

                          As far as PB and MM go, consecutives should be expected on a fairly frequent basis. Let's look at MM and assume that 1 and 56 aren't drawn as any of the first 4 numbers. Whatever the first number is there will be 55 possibilities for the 2nd number, and 2 of them will result in a consecutive pair. Right off the bat, that gives us almost a 4% chance of getting a consecutive pair.  Assuming that doesn't happen, 4 of the remaining 54 numbers will result in the 3rd number being consecutive with the 1st or 2nd, so there's almost another 8% chance. For the 4th number 6 of the remaining 53 will result in a consecutive pair, so there's almost a 12% chance. For the fifth it will be 8 of 52, so nearly a 16% chance. Overall, it works out to about a 1 in 3 chanc of having consecutive numbers.

                            Yep. KY Floyd is correct. Here are the raw numbers for a 5/39 and 5/59 (no bonus ball). Cool

                            Consec = difference of 1 between two numbers: 2,3,4,13,20 equals 2 consecs as does 2,3,7,8,34

                            In neo-conned Amerika, bank robs you.
                            Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms should be the name of a convenience store, not a govnoment agency.

                              I often play consecutive numbers because it does happen frequently. Don't buck a trend, make it your friend.
