Call me paranoid, but I don’t really trust the ‘lucky dip’ feature offered for choosing lottery numbers. So some time ago I built a couple of lottery number generators using server-side code – mostly as a learning experience. They worked ok but weren’t pretty.
Within the lottery ticket generator itself, the numbers are now sorted in ascending order and there is an extra level of randomness thrown in as the generator picks a random number from a group of other random numbers, rather than just grabbing the first random number it generates.
OK – so give it a try (and let me know if you win)!
Try the new National Lottery Number Generator…
