If nothing else, examining people who play the lottery offers some health professionals an interesting look into the minds and behaviors of human beings.

We all know that there's a cult of 5/39 matrix players who play 1 2 3 4 5 even though it's never been drawn in any 5/39 game played anywhere. 

I checked the last 1000 drawings of New York's Take5, (a 5/39 game) and five numbers from the same number group (units, ten's twenty's and thirty's) has not happened. So obviously five sequential numbers from the same number group has not been drawn during that same time period either.  I seriously doubt that over the entire life of Take5 (the game started in January of 1992) five numbers from the same number group have been drawn, but it'd take me forever to verify that, so I'm not going to do it.

Would those same players who play 1 2 3 4 5,  play 5 6 7 8 9?  I doubt it.  They'd probably tell you "Nah. That aint gonna happen."  Yet they'll play 1 2 3 4 5.  hmmmmmmmm  G5

About playing the lottery --  You will lose more than you win. Until you hit a jackpot.  Then everything changes!

    Never have, never will. Not necessarily because it I don't think it can't happen. It can. The reason is there are hundreds if not thousands of people that play such combinations. Which means if those numbers are drawn, the jackpot would be shared with so many people it would hardly be worth playing for.

      I agree.  It certainly can happen and I'm not saying it won't happen.

      But! It's folly because if you do it, and those numbers actually do hit, you just won a Jackpot (something that's VERY hard to do) for which you get paid almost NOTHING. How stupid is that?

        1-2-3-4-5 came up in the PA Treasure hunt 5/30 game several years back.  The payout was much lower, but in actual dollars, only several thousand dollars less than the starting jackpot of $10K.

        12/04/10

        Winning Numbers: 01 02 03 04 05

        49 players matched 5, each receiving $1,266.00
        117 players matched 4, each receiving $100.00
        1,827 players matched 3, each receiving $6.00
        13,940 players matched 2, each receiving $1.00

        The same can't be said for winners of the Cash 5 drawing 5/39 game (now 5/43) back in 2004 who played a common combination - there were over two hundred jackpot winners, who instead of winning say $50K-$100K, only won $439.

        02/06/04
        Winning Numbers: 05 10 15 20 25

        242 players matched 5, each receiving $439.00
        402 players matched 4, each receiving $110.50
        6269 players matched 3, each receiving $7.50
        56593 players matched 2, each receiving $1.00

        Many players don't consider the para-mutual aspect of most lotto games when selecting their numbers. With all that said, 1-2-3-4-5 would be a fine combination to play in a 5-digit game with fixed payouts, such as PA Quinto.

                        If I'm picking my own numbers I wouldn't choose a set like that. But one time I got a quick pick that had 10-11-12-13-14. It's the type of line that I would never choose on my own.

                          I wouldn't pick that either, but I've also had a QP with something very similar.  (I once had a QP that was one number off on 5 of the 6 winning numbers) Not long after Texas started its lottery, there was a guy who got several quick picks on the same ticket and two of the lines were identical.  The news had some college math professor on saying the odds against that were the same as winning the lottery.
