Does anyone know the probability of random selection of quick pick numbers making a mistake?  I've got a ticket that has the same number twice, once as a megaball number.  How does this affect your chances of winning?

    It's not unusual for the mega number to be the same as one of the other 5 numbers, there have even been winning combinations where the mega ball had the some number as one the other 5 balls, they're from two different groups of numbers.  If you don't like QPs you do have the opinion of making out a ticket.


    P.S.  The chances of that happening is 1:46
