What are the odds?

    Look what the random number generator threw up for me in tonight's Euromillions.....


    Who do I talk to about a refund? ;)

    That looks like the winning numbers for sure.

    Exactly the same odds as any other combination, and sequential numbers are very common (in groups of two or three anyway).

    The only thing that is curious is stories of folks whom win the main jackpots twice or more, at odds of around 20 million multiplied by another 20 million or so. Probably explainable by temporary glitches in the time-space quantum matrix entanglement, whereby the winners receive insight 'of sorts' as to the correct numbers to choose.

    Lottos to avoid:
    1. Ryanair - if you win, you have pick from 125 envelopes to actually win anything.

    2. UK Lotto from end of 2015: Lotto players will have to select their winning numbers from a pool of 59 rather than 49 under sweeping changes to the game taking effect later this year.

    you can actually void the ticket and hand it back if you don't like the numbers you get (before draw!!)
