I thought the people on LP would find this interesting.  I'm not sure I can post a link to the Florida Lottery website without violating any rules.

Go to the media center on the Florida site and read today's press release.  Last night when the numbers were selected, I found it odd that so many people hit a combination like this one. 19-21-23-30-36   When I read the press release today, I realized that one player must have played the same card 5 times since M&S Mart in Saint Petersburg is listed 5 times.  I've never seen this before.   The other winner who bought a ticket at Publix in Miami only gets 1/6 of the prize.

Either that, or the people who manage the Florida Lottery site goofed again (which is entirely possible)

    I just saw the news release at the Florida Lottery website.

    Unless it's a misprint, I'd say one person played the same numbers five times.
