The mistake most lotto players make, is that they don't pick two number together; like 09,10 or any two numbers together in a lottery.In the Florida lotto last Saturday,two numbers came in together,27 and 28.The Florida lotto now is $25 million.

    This " mistake" you speak of Harry may be well known to millions but you know as well as me, old habits are hard to break. People ought to be listening to what you saying.

          How is this a mistake? Sure, consecutives do come out. But, this is just some of the time. What you're proposing is more of a notion ,or idea, for people to consider when playing.

            Hi Harry194172,

            I do play consecutive numbers together sometimes when I pick my own numbers. It's made no difference for myself. Since the lottery is so random I'm not sure it even matters as to what numbers people play. Though I would never play 1,2,3,4,5 together. I also feel that since more people tend to play lower numbers for their birthdays, anniversaries, etc. I tend to play more higher numbers.

              Why would you never play 1,2,3,4,5?

               

              On a similar note, Florida Fantasy 5 once drew 1,3,5,7,9. Normal payout is between $50k-$200k. Well that night 98 people won $1,995.  That's still more than what I won LOL

                But that contradicts "The mistake most lotto players make, is that they don't pick two number together; like 09,10". And if you play 5's you can't play consecutive numbers. You can't play all even or all odd either. Maybe someone will do the math and show us the percentage of combinations with consecutive numbers.

                If it's a mistake not to play play them, it must be over 70%.

                      In the Florida Fantasy 5 game, 46.58% of combinations feature at least one consecutive number.

                      Formula: Consective Combinations = Total Combinations - C(32,5) or Number of Non-Consecutive Combinations

                      Divide this number by total number of combinations aka C(36,5) to get the percent or probability. Result comes from Excel's COMBIN((n - k + 1), k) where "n" is 36 (draw pool) and "k" is 5 (number drawn).

                      Applying this to Florida Lotto (6/53), approximately 46.55% of combinations feature a consecutive number.

                      If the chances of winning the jackpot are so slim, why play when the jackpot is so small? Your chances never change, but the potential payoff does.
                      If a crystal ball showed you the future of the rest of your life, and in that future you will never win a jackpot, would you still play?

                        Here are  the winning numbers for Florida lottery Saturday 11/19/2013

                        09,12,15,21,33,45 x2 .

                        Here you see no  number balls together. That is because the lotto mechine had mix the ping pong balls well. Lotto ping pong balls not being mixed well in the mechine is like a new deck of  playing cards , that not mix well, and what do you get, a bunch of pairs

                           03,05,08,01,14,15   Delta numbers converted into lotto numbers

                           03,08,16,17,31,46  Add these numbers 03+08+16+17+31+46=121   The sum of numbers  between 121-186 have a better chance of winning. Player that         pick birthday and age numbers, end up sharing the winnings, with others. Three odds and three evens in every game. Highs and lows. 

                            .

                          I'm still waiting to hear why it's a mistake not to play combos with less than 50% chance of winning.
