That's kind of heartbreaking. Imagine watching the draw and seeing all the numbers on your ticket gets pulled. In your mind, you're thinking.....I don't have to go to work! Just to find out you only won 7k

        LOL

        To be fair though, 344K would not go far in California. Around where I live that would buy a 2-bedroom dump in a crime-ridden neighborhood. Blue state blues...

        But it's a good amount if you're high-tailing it out of here for greener, (redder) pastures.

          How many used quick picks and how many used their own numbers?

          If quick picks, then the California lottery generate the same sets?

            Well we have had quite a few 3 digits systems put forth here at Lottery Post using 369 in the process, but didn't find any using 369 in making up lotto combos. Those are the only numbers that can be made for that Fantasy Five draw using 3, 6, and 9. Hard to imagine 30 to 45 players came up with the same idea. In other states where they had  20 or so players win the jackpot in a small 5 number lotto game, it was usually because the players filled out a lotto card by going straight down a card column or doing a criss cross pattern. However, I haven't seen a play slip for this game, but it doesn't seem that a pattern play was involved. I kind of favor the fortune cookie theory like the time there were many winners in PB I think for the $1,000,000 prize where many players played the numbers from a fortune cookie.

                  Yeah, the TV show Lost, Hurley's lottery numbers of 4-8-15-16-23-42 were played in the Jan. 2011 mega millions lottery. The jackpot was 355M, four of the 6 numbers drawn, matched Hurley's lottery numbers. There were 41,763 people who played that number and each person received $150.

                  In Dec. 2020 the African Powerball jackpot of 370K was won by 20 people with the numbers: 5-6-7-8-9-10. Lottery players cried fraud and an investigation took place.

                  Also 10K people play in the U.S. play the number 1-2-3-4-5-6 on a daily basis. To my knowledge this combination has never come out.

                  I agree with you, a lot of people play certain number combinations and it is not worth it to play these numbers and expect to get rich.

                    "the numbers: 5-6-7-8-9-10. Lottery players cried fraud and an investigation took place."

                    There's a small chance that 1 out of 20 might pick those numbers based on birthdays or something, but at least 19 had to have played them just because they were consecutive numbers. It takes a special kind of stupid to play numbers like that and cry fraud instead of figuring it out when you share the winnings with a bunch of other people.
