    Yep it keeps happening on both games.

    At what point do we start think something fishy is going on with the way numbers are drawn?  What if this happens for every single drawing in both games for the next six months or more?

    "At what point do we start think something fishy is going on"

    When the results are extremely improbable. For instance, when it actually "happens for every single drawing in both games for the next six months or more" in real life instead of your imagination.

    Then again, whatever the results of next Saturday's PB drawing are I can promise the odds of that result happening because of a fair and unmanipulated drawing will only be 1 in 175,223,510.

    Out of curiosity, do you actually have a clue what the odds of drawing 2 consecutive numbers are?

      No I don't know the odds but it should not be happening this often I'd think.

        Many think they know what a normal drawing should look like, but if that were the case, it wouldn't be random, or normal.

          The clumping up of some of these numbers reflects more to the randomness than anything else. But if you jjtheprince want to believe in conspiracy then you have that right. Ijs

            But what if it keeps happening forever?

              If you don't know, what do you base your thinking on?

              Let's start with an easy one. Suppose the first ball drawn is 21. What are the chances that the 2nd ball will be a consecutive number? What are the chances that the 3rd, 4th, or 5th ball will be consecutive to the first?

              "But what if it keeps happening forever?"

              If it happens forever it will mean that an extremely improbably string of events has occurred or there's something wrong with the results. It isn't going to happen forever, though, so you're just asking a meaningless question.

                MM numbers for 01/30/2015 were 18-31-39-45-55 MB 06.

                As you can see, random weird things will happen but not all always because that would make it predictable.  Back to back numbers will appear from time to time.

                  Back to back numbers again last night 51, 52. Good luck to everyone on the next drawing!

                    I'm playing a combination with back to back numbers for Saturday night's drawing.

                        And they're both drawn one state apart. GA and FL.

                        I  will play back to back numbers. I'm thinking 46 & 47 and then play 06 as the powerball since it hasn't been drawn since July 27, 2013

                          It happened again in MM last night.

                          02/06/2015   05-06-17-33-68 MM 13

                          It's very interesting.

                            You were right jjtheprince. It seems to happen very often. I don't know what it means but I see it more often since you put up this thread.

                              Its just an adjacent hit the thing to look for is finding the right number and the number it likes to come back with. Its not that hard if you look through past results.
