Consecutive numbers are numbers that follow each other in order with a difference of 1 between them. For example; 1, 2, 3 and 10,11,12. Some people believe you should not play consecutive numbers, however this is not necessarily true. Looking below you will see real statistics for how many consecutive numbers are found in winning lines. Most frequently, draws do not have any consecutive numbers, however choosing 2 consecutive numbers are somewhat common. If you are playing 3 or more consecutive numbers, the odds are very against you. This leads us to believe that the numbers 1,2,3,4,5,6 will almost never be chosen as a winning combination. We did find a single winning draw where the numbers 1,2,3,4 were selected, showing that it is not impossible. LotteryTracker highly recommends not playing numbers 1 through 6 because of two simple reasons: Your probability is low and even if you won, your winning pot would be so small that it would be an utter disappointment. If you didn’t realize the obvious, a lot of people are playing numbers 1 through 6, so dividing the winning pot will not be what you expect.
