Hi.  I thought I was reading the same press release I saw on Tues, but 2 Fantasy 5 tickets were sold at the same store in Cape Coral this week.  Just something I thought was interesting.  If the FL site is posting the information correctly, one ticket was a QP and the other was not.  Some of the numbers were the same, so at first I thought it was a misprint.  I know this can happen, but I was surprised it hit front page news in our local paper!  This is from the Fort Myers News-Press today.  

Cape Publix sells winning Fantasy 5 ticket - again
Originally posted on January 25, 2007

TALLAHASSEE -- For the second time in three days a ticket purchased at a Cape Coral Publix has hit the winning Fantasy 5 numbers.

Last night two tickets matched all five and one of them was bought at the Publix at 1631 Del Prado south. On Monday, a ticket bought at the same store matched and was the sole winner of $236,320.44.

The holder of the ticket bought at the Publix and drawn last night will share a $256,364 top prize with the holder of a ticket bought at a Kwik Stop in Miami.

The winning FANTASY 5 numbers were 04 - 11 - 25 - 27 - 33.

 

the numbers that were drawn on Monday were

04 - 17 - 19 - 25 - 27

    It's strange but this does happen! Even here in Sacramento we have a store here who produced 2 Super Lotto Jackpot winners. They were a couple of years apart, I believe, but there is something to the saying,"Lightning strikes twice"!

      At least in this case, both of them were not QPs.  If they were, I would wonder why one store produced both tickets in only 3 days.  I guess it all comes down to being in the right place at the right time.  Publix in general sells a lot of winning tickets anyway, but it makes sense since they are a very large supermarket chain.  I'm still a little confused about the quick pick "algorithm" each terminal uses which has been discussed on this board a few times. Maybe confused isn't the right word, just unsure.

      Well, congrats to the winners.Dance 

      Cape Coral is in Lee County where I live, so maybe I know one of the winners.  (as if that makes a difference!  lol)

         It's probably here on LP somewhere, use Resources, Search for something, or Google "Lottery + Wisconsin + Miracle Mile"

        Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

        There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.
