LOTTO 6/49 has 13.983.816 combinations, or "lines" of 6 numbers.

"01,02,03,04,05,06" is one of them.

Combinations with 6 consecutive numbers, like "35,36,37,38,39,40"

or, "23,24,25,26,27,28" are only 44.

Divide the 13.983.816 combinations by the combinations or lines which only have 6 consecutive numbers and that are 44 and, you'll get the "expectancy" - or how often should I expect this particular line for example of 6 consecutive numbers to appear - which is every 317.814 drawings.

Your calculation is based on all 44 consecutive combinations, not a particular one.  You can expect only one of the 44 to show up every 317,814 drawings.  The odds of a particular combination showing up are the same for all of them regardless of their composition - 1:13,983,816.

I think he is trying to calculate the 44 combinatins in relation to the remaining 13,983,772 combinations, any one of which having BETTER ODDS of hitting.

Basically according to this mathematical proof, If i want to hit a consecutive series of neighboring numbers, then I just have to guess correctly once every 44 games.

And you can even begin to back test it because the 123456 consecutive just hit.

How would the odds change, if instead of 6 consecutive numbers, you used 10 consecutive numbers?

LB ,

Their must be a flaw is all this Theory and Analysis of Games . I beat the Pick 5 games ( 1 NY Take 5 and 1 Arizona Fanatasy 5 with 5 out 5 each in Predictions ). The NY Take 5 , I had the Win in 7 lines and Arizona Fantasy 5 it was with in my Predictions Posted with 1 Filters at 100 plus lines .. The NY Take 5 , I've had many 4 out 5 , 3 out 5 and 2 out 5 Hits with a Few Predictions . It does not matter on all this Theory and Analysis its the System/Method/Process that can Produce the Winning Lines .

LOL.

Yes I guess the limit is not really on how many games you can buy but rather how tired will your hand get.

I have to find what printer can print playslips the best.

I was looking for a ted bundy or son of sam, but todd doesn't carry it.  I think he might have some smurfs though.
