Last night's CA Fantasy Five had this result:

1 - 3 - 5 - 7 - 31

Now, I know that odd combinations sometimes come up, but this is almost comical.

I have to find a way to play tonight's combination as 2 - 4 - 6 - 8 - who do we appreciate

But to me the real kicker is that it wasn't just a lucky guess by an evil genius sitting in his lair going, "Yes, I shall play the first four odd numbers, bwahahah."

And it wasn't one QP that somebody probably wanted to throw in the trash once they saw it.  It was four different individuals somehow (they don't show whether they were QP or not) all came up with that goofy combination on the same day.

Has anybody else seen baffling results like that in any lotto games?

    Epistrophy,

    In the Illinois Lucky Day Lotto (formerly Little Lotto), a 5/39 game, it seems when more than two low numbers hit is when it gets split by four or five players.

    Maybe it's birthdays or kids' ages or something.

    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.

      Yes.. Fla fantasy 5     26 winners.     Probably all birthdays.       Sometimes i like when the numbers do that, in a way it gives me a new pattern to look for in order to see what will follow.

        That makes a lot of sense.  I'll bet that kids' ages account for a large number of picks, so when they hit, all the parents have a field day.  Maybe a picnic even.

        And that also works into the theory that if you want to try to win a large jackpot and not split it, the way to go is with higher numbers, especially when you get above 31, because all of the birthdates have been eliminated.

          I like the 2-4-6 pattern in that one, where after the 1, you sequentially add +2, +4, and +6.

          There's a big part of my "2-4-6-8-who do we appreciate" sequence.

          Who knew it could be so easy sometimes?

                  All the lotto "gurus" say if 1 2 3 4 5 (Pick 5)  or 1  2  3  4  5  6 (Pick 6) ever hit it would be split a lot of ways, and that's probably very true, but I wonder if 1 2 3 4 6  or 1 2  3  4  5  7 hit what the outcome would be.

                  Kind of like playing the best hand in lo-ball poker, A 2 3 4 6.

                    It's happened a few times that the Virginia Cash 5 has drawn all single numbers. 

                    The first one was on December 30, 2007 when they drew 3-5-6-7-8

                    Today's winning 3-ball is going to be a number between 000 and 999.

                    In a lot of states, lotteries benefit education. That makes the REAL winners the only people who can't play!

                      Well, maybe your next combo using all even numbers could go - 2, 4, 6, 8 and use a combo of those 4 for the fifth number like what happened in

                      the all odd (in more ways than one) combination of winning numbers.

                      2, 4, 6, 8 with a 24, 26, 28 as the fifth number.

                      If the 4 winners hand selected their numbers for the odd draw, they might have started with 1, 3, 5, 7 and just added 2 of the same for the last number.

                      1, 3, 5, 7 with a 13, 15, 17, 31, 35 and 37 making 6 combos.
