Just curious.  I have played the same numbers in various games and won (though not the jackpot).

    Interesting question, mylollipop.  I have no idea, but it wouldn't surprise me if the same 6 digit combination won more than one state lottery.

      Maybe someone has done some research on this. I would think it is possible.

        Every combination that is drawn is the winning numbers, guardless if someone had the numbers.

            I'm sure its possible,but the more numbers that are involved the less the chances will be that they all come up in different lottery jackpots.I hope it happens to me on Mega Millions tonight and Powerball tomorrow night!Banana

              I really don't know, but the odds are definately against it.

                Maryland's Bonus match 5 have had the same numbers drawn several times.

                I don't think mega millions and powerball have had all the same numbers drawn 2 or more times yet.

                  I always play different numbers and when I get off the numbers they fall.  You would think that I would learn by now. I am trying to stay on same numbers, but get discourage when they don't fall and end up playing different numbers.

                    In the PowerBall, game the combination 02 13 20 21 23 has come up twice

                     01/09/08   02 13 20 21 23    +24
                     02/08/03   02 13 20 21 23    +35

                    It happened several times in the old Ohio Buckeye5 game and some of the winning numbers of that game have repeated in the newer Ohio Rolling Cash5 game twice.

                     BUCKEYE5     11/25/99   04 06 21 30 31

                    I don't have data for games I don't play but it probably has happened in other games too.  If anyone has an updated version of LottoPro or similar software or a premium LP membership, they could easily do a search to find such occurrences.

                      I was going to vote no, but four4me and RJOh have proved otherwise.

                      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.

                        I was surprised you would have voted no had it not been for my and four4me posts.  I alway thought where possible your posts were based on actual observations.

                        When I first started tracking lotteries, I had a copy of LottoPro which I updated every day so I tracked a lot more games than I do now.  I discovered for most lotteries if they had 0.5% of their possible combinations in drawings, they had at least one winning combination that had repeated.  Most games don't last that long without a matrix change.

                          I thought the question was about games like PB, MM and state lotteries, not pick 5.  Otherwise my answer would have been different.   I've seen the same numbers come up in different games in Florida.  I don't have any specific examples, but I've seen a Fantasy 5 win where I'm pretty sure those 5 numbers were drawn for the 6 number Lotto at one time or another.

                            You may be correct on the Ohio games,I have no way of knowing.

                            You are incorrect on the Powerball games.Only 5 of the six numbers came up again,the Powerball numbers are different,therefore,no jackpot.

                              I didn't post a jackpot had been won in PB, I posted a 5 number combination had come up twice in PB and everything I posted included the dates so you could recheck them if you wish.
