I know it does not happen often, if ever, but has anyone ever seen any jackpot numbers ever come up twice or more? Maybe they have on the cash 5? I have not done exclusive research on the histories for repeats yet, but I did notice that it almost happened with lucky for life recently.

 

 

That is the closest I have ever seen so far. I am sure some almost had a heart attack out there who may have almost matched all 6 on both draws. :P

I wonder if any powerball numbers have ever came up twice? One night I entered hundreds of random numbers into the search history, and none had any matches. Scary...Pumpkin

    with daily 3 the  numbers are repeaters, so if you have  a special no. that you play, continue playing that number.

    good luck'

            If you get yourself a Premium Membership you can search it out, though it would take some energy.
