PB Jackpot for 8/26 has rolled to 64 million. Everyone, there are possible "spoilers" test picks from time to time on the side just in case I can't include it in 15/5 format. fja, I didn't pick 51 this time because it was in the last draw. I don't use the same winning number from draw to draw.
I don't like repeat numbers from the prior game either, but it's a fact of the game.
From 5/27 to 7/1, there was 11 games, 9 of them had a repeat from the prior game.
It makes sense becase there are 5 numbers to choose from in the prior game (5 out of 55), so in 'theory' a repeat number should happen every other game, odds-wise.
In the last 7 games we have had 4 repeats, including the last 3 in a row.
I personally don't play repeats very much because I can't afford to wheel those 5 numbers into my 'scenarios', I pretty much put my faith in the road less travelled.
