    I wouldn't think these were QP? But why would anyone, or 8 people play that combo?

      Interesting factoid: a great book on "Understanding Probability" made the observation that people who pick (the popular strategy) 1,2,3,4,5,6 or for CA's F5, 1,2,3,4,39 are sure to share the prize with a lot of other players.  Yep, 8 people shared the prize and I too doubt that they were QP's.  Also, 3 numbers repeated 9 draws back (3,4,39 from 12/1/06).  That happens roughly 9 draws out of every 100 (for CA F5), where 3 numbers will repeat from 1 or 2 ….10 draws back.

        In the Ohio Rolling Cash5 (5/39) during the last 500 drawings, the winning numbers have matched 3 fifty times in the previous 10 drawings, ten times it happened the previous drawing.

          Very interesting Rjoh, thanks for the info.  I just did a quick count where 3 numbers repeated from anywhere within the previous 10 draws, for the last 500 draws, and the count for CA's F5 was 48… roughly equal to your count of 50 for Ohio in its last 500 draws.  There was at least one draw, in CA F5, where 4 numbers repeated from somewhere within the previous 10 draws (of the sample of the last 500).  Is Ohio's a computerized drawing system?  California's is, I prefer those since the computerized drawing is "pseudo-random", there's "occasional blips" where the numbers drawn appear to be less than random—and that's when I like to place a bet.

            So far all Ohio drawings have used balls. The pick3 and pick4 games use air to mix them in a chamber for each position and the winning balls pop out at the top and the other games use air to mix all the balls in one chamber and  the winning balls fall out the bottom into a tube.

              What may appear to be unique about a 5/39 game when compared to other 5 digits games such as PowerBall or MegaMillions might be quite common when compared with another 5/39 game.  I would imagine that CA's F5 statistics look very much like those of OH's RC5.  If CA's computer is as random as OH's balls then they will about the same.

                They (OH & CA, and others) may look about the same.  Somehow I don't think the "5 balls in the hopper" will generate the rare event that 4 numbers will repeat from anywhere w/in the last 10 draws… or the extremely rare event such as 11/15/00 and 11/25/00 where all 5 numbers repeated-- same 5 #'s for both dates (for CA F5); and on 11/25/00 28 people (or tickets) split the match 5/5 top prize.  Anyone across the US can go to the official CALottery website and download the entire dataset in text format to verify.  Folks who live in Cal can ask any lotto retailer for the winning numbers of both the above dates  verify that 28 tickets shared the 5/5 prize.  I only stumbled upon slicing & dicing the data to trap and track for "triples" at the beginning of '06 (actually late '05 ... I've made some money on the strategy but lost some too) but I do believe it'll happen again… except from somewhere within the previous six draws (or 5 or 7, close enough to bet a buck or two).

                  Ohio Rolling Cash5 has had 698 drawings since 10/04/04 and matched 4 numbers from previous drawings 90 times and no match 5's but have matched 4 within ten drawings once on:

                   12/14/04 - 03 11 20 29 35
                   12/13/04 - 11 20 29 35 37

                  The Ohio Buckeye5 game(5/37) which it replaced ran over ten years and matched 5 six times.
