Why are back to back pairs of numbers drawn in over 90% of mega millions and powerball drawings?

Doesn't exactly seem "random" to me.  Maybe it's time both games abandoned these balls and went to a more foolproof system like a computer generated draw.

    First of all if you actually checked the PB and MM drawings you would have found 68% of their combinations had no back to back pairs.  It's not possible to explain made-up BS.

      So, do you then PLAY back to back pairs when you play those games? I will put that in now and then when I play.

        Yes, I play trends to win.

        Back to back pairs won in Florida on the last Powerball.

          Show the proof that 90% of all MegaMillion & PowerBall Drawings exhibit back-to-back pairs and it will be explained!

            RJ, you can buy 'em books and buy 'em books, but sometimes all they do is chew the covers off.

              I'm constantly surprised how much BS is stated as facts by LP members knowing there are data files here for all lotteries that anyone can check.  Do they really think serious lottery players are going to believe their crap because it's easier than checking those data files themselves?

                    That going to be hard to do since it only happened twelve times in the last 50 drawings.  If he does respond he'll just have to admit he made a mistake which I doubt he has the humidity to admit.

                      I Agree! Just another troll making outlandish false statements for whatever reason...

                        This typo caught my eye - probably the auto-correct:

                        "....I doubt he has the humidity to admit."

                        I would disagree because you have proved he's "all wet" several times before. Wink

                        Speaking of typos, I once sent out a mass e-mail to my online friends and family after being offline for a while - telling them all what had been going on with me, etc.  I closed it out with "Regards"

                        Did you know the "G" and the "T" are close to each other on a keyboard?
