A $1 million lottery’s winning numbers: 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19

The numbers for the Virginia Lottery’s Bank a Million draw Saturday night stunned some observers — but not mathematicians.

The lottery game was Bank a Million, a contest launched in 2015 with the tag line that if a winner matches the numbers drawn, “You bank the $1,000,000. We pay the taxes.” On Saturday night, Virginia Lottery draw show host Liz Hayes narrated the picks, as usual, as the numbered ping-pong balls were blown with forced air up into tubes.
What happened next was decidedly not usual.

“Tonight’s first number is 16,” Hayes began. “Our second number, 13. Third number tonight is 14. Next we have 18, followed by 17 and 15. And your Bonus Ball tonight is 19.”

Or, in order of lowest to highest: 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18 and 19.

John Hagerty, a spokesman for the Virginia Lottery — which generates approximately $1.6 million per day for the state’s K-12 public schools, according to its website — said “it’s always fun when those random numbers come out in some sort of discernible sequence,” such as 1-1-1 in the Pick 3 or 0-0-0-0 in the Pick 4. But the picks Saturday night were a first for him.
