Lightning does strike twice

October 20, 2010 in Math

Remember that Bulgarian lottery that happened in a bar that drew the same numbers in consecutive weeks? (TGR covered it extensively here and less extensively here.) Well, it turns out lightning does strike twice: the Israeli lottery had the same winning combinations come up just three weeks apart - though the numbers were drawn in a different order each time.

Too bad the draws were spread out just a little too much for the "play last week's numbers" crowd to score a big win.
