  1. I experimented with a list of integers 1-27. For example, if we choose 1,2,3,4......then we'd have to jump to 9,10,11,12 to ensure no differences of 4.....then to 17,18,19,20.....and lastly to 25,26,27. That is 15 numbers altogether. Any other number drawn after that would produce a difference of 4 with one of these, so we would have to draw at least 16 numbers.
    This was the max number I could find after trying other combinations as well.
