Repeated Winning Numbers In Bulgarian Lottery

I find this quite freaky – The chances of this happening being 4.2 million to one! I find this quite funny as some people use the same number each week therefore if they won in the first instance they would win again with the same number. Surely if you win with one set of number you’d change the number for the following week perhaps they are kicking themselves for doing so. At the end of the day I still call the lottery the idiot tax in the UK. At least the money made it goes to sport a far better causes that gay black single parent father ballet dancers in the UK!

Repeated Winning Numbers In Bulgarian Lottery

BULGARIA'S Sports Minister Svilen Neykov has ordered a special review of the national lottery after the same numbers were picked in straight draws.

The numbers 4, 15, 23, 24, 35, and 42 were drawn on September 6 and again on September 10 in consecutive lottery rounds. The probability of this happening is 4.2 million to one, mathematician Mihail Konstantinov commented, although he added that such coincidences can happen. Three of the numbers also appeared in the September 13 draw.

Lottery deputy chairwoman Maria Yaneva excluded any possibility of manipulation, telling the 24 Hours newspaper that the numbers were drawn in different order each time.
The draws take place in the presence of a special lottery committee that guarantees no manipulation, and it is broadcast live on television, she added.

An unprecedented 18 people guessed all six numbers when they were drawn the second time on September 10. The winners will each get 10,164 leva ($8800).
In the first draw on September 6, nobody got all six numbers right.

The last major jackpot in the Bulgarian lottery of 3.8 million leva ($3.3 million) fell in January 2008.
