I was playing around with Consecutive Numbers ( the UK 649 Main Lotto ) in the week and came up with the following Statistics ( for what they are worth ). I wondered how many times Consecutive Numbers had come up from one Column to the Next ( after Numerical Sorting for each Draw ).

It would be nice to know if the Total Combinations available are correct for each of the Statistics below so I could work out if the figures are Above or Below the Expected Norm.

I am not sure what the benefit of knowing this information will be, but at least we can see if the Lotto is performing to the Expected Norm.

Consecutive Numbers ( As Per Number Position ) Analysis

Columns 1-2 75 1.48% 44

Columns 2-3 74 1.46% 44

Columns 3-4 85 1.68% 44

Columns 4-5 89 1.76% 44

Columns 5-6 87 1.72% 44

The other idea that I came up with was that there are ( I am sure someone will correct me if I am wrong ) 31 different Combinations of 6 Numbers in regard to Consecutive Numbers. They are :-

Variations of Consecutive Numbers Within Each 6 Numbers

Consecutives ( 1 Double )

Columns 1,2 44 Combs

Columns 2,3 44 Combs

Columns 3,4 44 Combs

Columns 4,5 44 Combs

Columns 5,6 44 Combs

Consecutives ( 2 Doubles )

Columns 1,2 & 3,4

Columns 1,2 & 4,5

Columns 1,2 & 5,6

Columns 2,3 & 4,5

Columns 2,3 & 5,6

Columns 3,4 & 5,6

Consecutives ( 3 Doubles )

Columns 1,2 & 3,4 & 5,6

Consecutives ( 1 Triple )

Columns 1,2,3 44 Combs

Columns 2,3,4 44 Combs

Columns 3,4,5 44 Combs

Columns 4,5,6 44 Combs

Consecutives ( 1 Triple + 1 Double )

Columns 1,2,3 & 4,5

Columns 1,2,3 & 5,6

Columns 2,3,4 & 5,6

Columns 3,4,5 & 1,2

Columns 4,5,6 & 1,2

Columns 4,5,6 & 2,3

Consecutives ( 2 Triples )

Columns 1,2,3 & 4,5,6

Consecutives ( 1 Quadruple )

Columns 1,2,3,4 44 Combs

Columns 2,3,4,5 44 Combs

Columns 3,4,5,6 44 Combs

Consecutives ( 1 Quadruple + 1 Double )

Columns 1,2,3,4 & 5,6

Columns 3,4,5,6 & 1,2

Consecutives ( 1 Quintuple )

Columns 1,2,3,4,5 44 Combs

Columns 2,3,4,5,6 44 Combs

Consecutives ( 1 Sextuple )

Columns 1,2,3,4,5,6 44 Combs

It would also be nice to know how many Total Combinations are available for each of the above.

Also, is there an easy way to put a table of information on a thread to stop it going all skewy.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
