I was checking my Ohio649P file and even though there are 325 entrants, record #321 - 08/13/03 04-13-23-28-44-46 +12 had never match 3 and the combination didn't look odd(small range, large sum, bunched up and etc).  I thought with that many drawings almost all combinations of 3 had been drawn, yet this combination contained 20 combinations of threes that had never been drawn.

I set the parameters in my RNG to pick 20 combinations with normal sums and numbers in their normal postions with a few other limitations such as having never matched 3.  It took awhile for the computer to finish the task, I doubt if I could have ever done it by hand.  The combination 01-02-03-04-05-06 has matched 3 six times, and until 08/13/03 the combination that was drawn had not equal that.

I asked the questions 'Are there other similar combinations out there?','Can any normal looking combinaion go that long without matching 3 at least once?.  I know it happened once, maybe it will happen again.  I now have 20 such combinations and I will check the results with tonight's drawing.

    The drawing is over. 02-15-20-34-41-46 +09 was drawn and only 02-15-41, 02-34-46 and 15-34-46 had come in before, so there were 17 combinations of 3's that were new.  My 20 lines contained 400 new combinations of 3's and not one of the 17 was among them. I had 02-09-46 and 09-20-41 but they don't count.  I didn't have any matches that count.  I'm going to think out side the box a little more.
