Thirtysomethings with winning ways

The Hungry Thirties enjoyed a rare feast of wins in last week's lottery, providing four of the seven winning balls in 35, 36, 37 and 39. Three consecutive numbers came up for the first time since 30 March, and both the two long-running losing sequences came to an end with 36 and 39 coming up for the first time this year, after 22 straight absences from the winners' enclosure.

All five numbers that three weeks ago had losing sequences longer than 20 weeks have since won. Only two numbers, 21 and 3, now have significant losing sequences, followed by 32 and 15. The poorest performer is still 39, with just three wins to date, followed by 13, 3, 19, 20 and 36, 8, 10, 24 and 27.
