Quickpick-How random?

    Myself and wife bought consecutive €5 lotto Quickpicks today, same machine.
    My 2 lines first numbers on both 6 and 13.
    Her 2 lines first numbers on both 6 and 13!

    Furthermore on one of my line there's 6, 13 and 15.
    Likewise 6,13 and 15 on one of hers!!!

    The odds of randomly generated numbers producing these lines must be huge!

    Random my a**e!!!

    About one in 1500 quick picks have identical first two digits to the previous ticket on that machine.

    Happens every day.
