No, the odds remain the same.

The odds of getting two consecutive numbers will be the same as getting two non-consecutive, but surely for getting three or more the odds must rise exponentially?

Any maths experts here? (and I don't mean covid modellers).

Has the sequence 1,2,3,4,5,6 ever been drawn in the lottery?

I don't rate myself as good at maths, but ...
no, there's a lower chance of getting any particular combination than a random result.

obviously, you don't know what random numbers are.
