VB - Generate an Array of Unique Random Numbers

This function will generate an ARRAY of TRULY random numbers. By default they are unique but this is a parameter which can be parsed. Useful for generating Lottery Numbers etc. I tried searching the net but could not find anything that could do this with the simplicity of this function. See comments within code for full explanation and sample.
