    Number 13 has not come up in the main lotto draw for 160 days. Is this some kind of record ?

    160 days or 160 draws? 160 days would only be roughly a quarter of 160 draws.

    Either way, it's irrelevant as to whether it means it's "due" or not

    Exactly, its very simple laws of probability that one draw or in this case 160 have absolutely no bearing on the next or any subsequent draws, the odds on 13 appearing are exactly the same as they would be if it had been drawn in everyone of those draws, each draw is entirely independent of each other.
