I saw the drawing results tonight here in Washington State and had to laugh.

We have a 4/24 draw game called Match 4 and the winning numbers tonight were 1-2-3-4. Impossible right?

31 players hit all 4 and won $10,000 each. Most nights have between 0-2 people winning.

lol.

    Did the lottery lose money?

    Previous draws have one or two winners (10K each).

      Just to show you that the Washington Lottery is fixed by corruption!!!! 31  winners when you only have 1 or 2 a night..Something is really fishy here. The scratchers arent worth buying either...

      Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.

        For this draw it looks like they lost a lot. Judging from the number of winners, it looks like about $35,000 in tickets were sold, but they're going to have to pay out about $316,000.

          How do you know that? Just because the numbers are sequential, doesn't mean the machine is rigged. Each combination has equal odds. The odds of having the numbers 1 2 3 4 are just as likely as 8 13 19 24.

          This is not the fist time that numbers from a lottery came up sequentially. Just earlier this year on January 13, my own state has sequential numbers 16 17 18 19 20. There are 29 winners. Fortunately for the lottery, the prizes are shared and each winner only got less than 2,000 dollars. So, unlike Washington Lottery, California Lottery didn't lose any money.

          Our brain is very good at seeing pattern so when we notice a pattern, we immediately say wow, there must be something. Not necessarily. Not in this case.

          Besides, the numbers drawn may not necessarily be sequential in this case. It might actually be 4 2 1 3 but they just sorted it sequentially just to make it easier to check your numbers.

            Hey Redhot7,

            I agree with what you are saying. I just find it odd to have 31 winners of a sequential number when everyone knows that the drawing is supoose to random or computerized. Just to show us that anything is possible!

              The reason that there are 31 winners is the numbers 1 2 3 4 5 are pretty easy to remember. So, plenty of people picked them. Sequential numbers are always popular.

                Maybe I should start playing seguential numbers myself then..PartyIf I did maybe I would've been one of those 31 winners that is 10,000 richer!

                  Yes but not with MM, PB or other games where the prizes are shared. If you rely on sequential numbers and you win, your would have to share the jackpot with like 1,000 people.

                    I've never played sequential numbers in PB or MM what are the chances of seeing 6 numbers are in sequential order. Your best bet to play these numbers are in state games like pick5,pick4 and pick 3.
