I bought a lottery ticket the other day. 2 lines of 'Luck Dip'. It was so lucky, that the second row had 4 of the same numbers as the first row!!

Being bored this evening I worked out that you're 3210 times more likely to get all 6 numbers than to get two rows with 4 numbers the same in them...

If my maths is holding up, the odds are 1 in 13,983,816 for the six numbers, and 1 in 44,891,439,376 for the two rows of 4.

Needless to say none of my number were drawn.

This is definately the sort of luck I can do without...

I should have read the title more closely and ignored this post.
