111 was drawn in the Ohio pick-3 game on January 11, 1982 and though rare, significant date numbers are drawn. The odds of winning by betting a buck on 1111 or 111 last Friday were exactly the same as betting any other number. The final score of the Ohio State - Michigan football game was drawn in the Ohio pick-4 game 20 minutes after the game ended a few years ago too.

It happens.

      I love this part..

       

      The Multi-State Lottery Association, which makes the payouts in the Powerball and Mega Millions drawings, does not have a cap on ticket sales, said Executive Director Charles Strutt. But that policy has caused some anxiety.

      In 2005, several hundred people across multiple states picked five winning numbers — using the numbers found in fortune cookies that all were shipped from the same New York bakery, forcing the lottery to spend some $19 million from a $25 million cash reserve, Strutt said.

       

      clearly these people(MSLA) are spending money faster than their getting it if the best any of these games could have on "reserve" is 25 mil???????  I'd love to hear where the real stockpile is  lol

      Since past unclaimed jp's and lower tier prizes do not get kicked back into future games,I'd guess that would be enough extra to sustain them  should they ever be "forced" to pay again those poor souls

      "No matter how bad things may get, I'd like to thank my middle finger

      for always sticking up for me.."

            Yeah this type of stuff happens occasionally.  Approximately equal to the odds, but that is over a long enough sample.  I bet if you combined all of the States' data, you'd find that this stuff happens pretty much as often as it should.

             

            I remember a Pick 3 draw that I couldn't figure out why it stuck out to me, it wasn't a number I had ever played, then I realized that the the number drawn was that day's date.  And with NJ's parimutual pay, the win was small.

              And if I remember right, didn't 911 come out ST8 EVE *1* year later on 9/11/2002????

              Not only that, If I recall, some flight numbers involved in 911 and the times the planes crashed also fell on on near 9/11, got to research that.

              GOD is great, beer is good and people are crazy! Crazy
