Good morning again John,
Many weeks ago you asked how the "Super 66" lottery draw works, as you were confused as to how you could get he same number drawn out twice.
A few years ago, before all the televised lotteries were shortened, we used to see the Super 66 draw on television in Canberra. Basically you have a barrel with six compartments, each compartment has ten balls numbered zero through
ten nine. From memory, you can't choose your own numbers in Super 66, it is a bit like a variation on New South Wales' "Lucky Lotteries" where you just get a ticket number and hope your number comes up, except that they only draw one set of numbers in Super 66, and prizes are assigned based on how many of those numbers you have.
New South Wales Lotteries did the exact same thing (but with seven numbers) when they had "Lucky Seven" on Friday nights before the football.
