When I lived in Valencia, my neighbor down the street won the California pick-6 lottery twice in the same year.

But it didn't happen because I never won the lottery once.

LOL

No. What I'm saying is that there is a far greater chance that there is a better explanation. An error in the perception of the ONE observer who saw fit to write about the event happening.
Beware. The earth is NOT flat. Hit and run is not a winning strategy: Pressing into trends IS not a winning strategy: Progressives are not a winning strategy: Don't Buy It! .Don't even take it for free.

I was dealt, not drawn to, but dealt the exact same straight flush (Ac, 2c, 3c, 4,c, 5c) TWICE before I ever even drew to a royal flush.
DUHHIIIIIIIII HEARD THAT!

Alan as a gambler, I don't believe it happened not because of the odds but because you said you never bet it. I think 99% of us would have started to put money on it by the 10th in a row. If it even gets to 10 Ina row I would start to think something is fishy and would have put at least 5 on it and probably would have been pressing for each after.

But I dont bet the horn or hardways.

The only time I have a horn bet is on the come-out roll for insurance of my passline bet.

So... guess again.

something IS fishy

I was thinking the same thing.

I would first look for the hidden TV show.

I can't believe management didn't think something was up. Money bet or not isn't the only factor.

I would assume the dice were loaded or someone was cheating. Perhaps the cheats had no choice and just left the dice. Perhaps someone cheating made a mistake.

If I was Alan or working there I would call gaming and ask that EVERYTHING be inspected.

IT WASN'T RANDOM OR IT DIDN'T HAPPEN

Neither do I but when something is thus screwed I would change my betting.
