Numbers drawn (in order drawn):

This JavaScript application uses a random number generator to pick numbers for lotto or bingo.

The current version allows the user to input the highest number that can be drawn, as well as the the number of selections to be made. At the moment the input values must be in the range from 1 to 120. Obviously, the number of selections to be made must be less than or equal to the highest number that can be selected.

Just enter the appropriate values in the input fields, and then click on the 'Draw the numbers' button. The selected numbers will be displayed in the order they were 'drawn'.
