      Sure am glad that 26 happens to be a megaball I play every week.  Unfortunately that is the only number I got right two of the last three weeks. 

      I, too, wondered about the probability of it happening three weeks in a row.  I've long ago forgotten what little I learned about probability in my statistics class what seems like 100 years ago.

        I'm thinking about playing some of the same numbers I played this week and got as easy picks. Then again, maybe not, I'll have to look them over a little more, dunno if I should exclude numbers that have shown up in the last few draws or not seeing how they seem to come up on a near consistant basis.

            After magaball 41 hit 3 drawings in a roll, there were 124 drawings before megaball 41 hit again.

                Nope, so prepare for it to be 26 again! Thumbs Up

                    How come nobody is suing the state...

                    Again what are the odds...That should never happen...It happened once now it happening again...

                    Not only is it imposing its religion on people put it also manipulating what plays in the lottery...

                    I just wish they continue to do it...

                        "What are the odds"

                        There are 46 mega balls, so the chances that a drawing would have the same MB as the previous drawing is 1 in 46. The chances that the 3rd would also have the same MB is 1 in (46*46), or 1 in 2116.

                          Do this people show that on TV? I remember that for a while they will not show the drawings on tv...And why don't they record it with video cameras and show it on the internet so that people that miss the drawing on TV can see them on their website...So why don't they do this? Why are they not been sued for this...People complain about TN changing to computerized it even makes it in the news the complaining and i think they're even congressman involvement on it, and yet this is bigger than DAMN Tennesse issue and no body is preparing a lawsuit...Where are the congressman now...

                          This just prove that they are reading this post....

                          I don't know this people as powerful as they are i don't know why they want to start something and then they can't take the heat....Don't start a bussiness if you can't take the heat....Stay out of the damn kitchen...

                          With all the pretest that they got in their favor you will think...I knew it was going to happened but i was slow to react...

                          You know what i think will happened next? That they begin to put cameras on every retailer that sells lottery tickets...Eso es el colmo...

                            I know, I wasn't literally asking what the odds were. Razz But good to share I guess.

                             

                             

                            The videos for the drawings are on the MM site. You can see the balls being mixed up in the drum/bin/whatever but they're already in there so there's no showing the balls before they're dropped (if they even do that) and when they're coming out they cut to a close up to where you can't really see the balls all that well, except for the ones coming out.

                             

                             

                            Now seeing the PB results I see was the Powerball too... What's up with the number 26??? O_o
