On our web site we have set up a program for you to download to analyse the triples appearing in the UK Lotto since it started.
The triple which has appeared most frequently from the start (No 1) on Saturday 19th November 1994 to the draw (No 1514) on Wednesday 30th June 2010 is 2, 23, 40 - it has appeared 9 times.
The program and instructions are available on our web site
We have used the statistics from the excellent Merseyworld Lotto site:
We will be modifying the program to identify the quadruples and the quintuples but this analysis takes so what longer!
As a possible extension, it might be interesting to identify triples which have never occurred.
