maybe you mis-understood my badly written explanation.

I'm not disputing the

*fact* that 1,2,3,4,5,6 has the same theoretical chance of appearing as 4,2,9,1,5,7 -- I am looking at the

*patterns*.

What I was trying to say is that the chance of randomly selecting a series of numbers that a regular person would recognise as a

*pattern* is slimmer than the chances of selecting a series of numbers that we don't recognise.

eg, the numbers increasing by (un)equal steps (1,2,3,4,5,6) (21,24,27,30,33,36) (1,2,13,14,25,26) in a pattern of some sort.

I havent checked them myself, but I'm so confident that you will not be able to identify any patterns that a regular lottery player would notice, I'm willing to give $100 to anybody that finds one in the UK National Lottery results found

Draw History | The National Lottery
That lists the last 48 draws, but you can download a full history currently listing 1222 draws dating back almost 13 years from the

Lotto Draw History .

My point is that I HIGHLY DOUBT that it has ever happened.

Feel free to show me proof / strong evidence otherwise, and I'll graciously retract everything I've said so far - but until then..
