So, I am new at taking the lottery more seriously. Been trying to follow several games in Colorado, one of which is Cash 5, a 5/32 with a $20,000 JP.

I've been following the winning numbers and trying to make predictions, and I noticed that one or more numbers from one game are repeating in the next. This is not occasional, this occurs almost every day. There are also many pairs that repeat, and even wierder is the 27 & 30 repeating 3 times in the last 4 games, as well as the 27-31 coming up frequently. Here's the past 30 draws, I highlighted the repeating numbers:

So, is this wierd or what? Or is it a common occurance in 5/32 games to have a number repeat almost every night and have so many double repeats, or is it just a fluke?

I'm trying to figure out my strategy with this game, and if I should count on #'s repeating so frequently.

    As you can see the odds of matching one number of any combination is 1:2, so it's normal that at least one of the number from the previous drawing would be in the winning numbers at least 59.9% of the time.

            ameriken,

            Without knowing what specific numbers are going to repeat you don't have much.

            And even if you did know which ones, lotteries don't sweat $1 and $10 payouts.

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

            Lep

            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.

              Some do and they make winning $1 and $10 payouts harder.  For example in Ohio Classic Lotto(6/49) the odds of winning $2 (3/6) are 1:57 while Michigan Classic Lotto (6/47) odds of winning $5 (3/6) are 1:50.  Cutting down on the smaller prizes is suppose to make the jackpot grow faster.

                Since CO pays $1 for 2/5, essentially making those free, I'd say go for it.

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

                  True, but they don't "sweat" the money (get overly concerned that someone is hitting them for $1 and $10). They know all too well that most of that money paid out goes right back into the lotto via more tickets bought.
