# Consecutives

I have 9 different designations for consecutives, and they are:
C means consecutive.
CC means two consecutives.
CCC means three consecutives.
CQC means a consecutive quad, plus a consecutive.
CTC means a consecutive,plus a triple consecutive.
QC means a quad consecutive.
QNT means a quint consecutive.
T means a triple consecutive.
TCC means a triple consecutive, plus a consecutive.
NOW A CTC DIFFERS FROM A TCC. A CTC, IS THE LOWER VALUE CONSECUTIVE PAIR IS FIRST, FOLLOWED BY THE TRIPLE CONSECUTIVE. A TCC IS THE LOWER VALUE IS THE TRIPLE CONSECUTIVE FIRST, FOLLOWED BY THE CONSECUTIVE.
I'm bringing up these designations so over the next few days when I go to post stats. on the consecutives, you will be better equipped to understand what I'm talking about.
If you have any comments, plse post them in the discussions thread, and leave this thread open of clutter, so that I may post the stats, following this post.

Consecutive designations

Just to cover all bases, you could add the following:
- TT: two triple consecutives;
- QCC: a quad consecutive, plus a consecutive (but your CQC should really be a consecutive, plus a quad consecutive);
- SC: a six consecutive.

These 4 types of combinations have yet to appear but who knows when they will.

Good Point! Gilles, when they come, I will include them in my designation.

Designations for consecutive

Another way that could be used to show even more graphically the position of the consecutives is a 6-digit number. That could go from:
- 111111: with no consecutives
- 211110, 121110, 112110, 111210 and 111120: with 1 set of two consecutives;
- 221100, 212100, 211200, 122100, 121200 and 112200: with 2 sets of two consecutives;
- 222000: with 3 sets of two consecutives;
- 311100, 131100, 113100 and 111300: with 1 set of three consecutives;
- 321000, 312000, 231000, 213000, 132000 and 123000: with 1 set of three consecutives and 1 set of two consecutives;
- 330000: with 2 sets of three consecutives;
- 411000, 141000, 114000: with 1 set of four consecutives;
- 420000 and 240000: with 1 set of four consecutives and 1 set of two consecutives;
- 510000 and 150000: with 1 set of five consecutives;
- 600000: with 1 set of 6 consecutives.

The 0 has no meaning but acts as a filler to always get a 6-digit number, so that the data can be manipulated, sorted or else (especially in Excel).

Actually, I do not really calculate actual values for each possibility but only for each type of consecutives (11 types listed before). Up to now (2022 draws), the values I get are:
- 111111: 1043 times or 51.58% (last draw: 2022);
- 211110: 766 times or 37.88% (last draw: 2021);
- 221100: 127 times or 6.28% (last draw: 2015);
- 222000: 1 time or 0.05% (last draw: 1291);
- 311100: 63 times or 3.12% (last draw: 1948);
- 321000: 15 times or 0.74% (last draw: 1867);
- 330000: never or 0.00%
- 411000: 6 times or 0.30% (last draw: 2003).
- 420000: never or 0.00%
- 510000: 1 time or 0.05% (last draw: 1748).
- 600000: never or 0.00%
