Hi Guys. Tn is running this promo this month buy five dollars in powerball and get a FREE TN LOTTO PLUS TICKET.

Ok so last week I bought a PB and got myfree  lotto plus ticket. ok then a few days ago I bought more PB BUT I noticed the freeTnLotto PLus numbers were the same as the last one (same numbers).

Last night I went  to the store and got 5 more Pb and got my free Tn Lotto Plus and low and behold its the same Tn Lotto Plus #'S

which are 7-23-32-36-39-43.

Whats up with that, Has anyone else bought powerball in Tn and recevied a free Tn lotto plus number.

And the kicker is they were bought at different stores. So later on Im going to another store and see what Tn lotto plus numbers I get and If its the same numbers as the last 3 then Tn has some explaining to do.

What do you think?

    well something is definitely strange, there was also a report somewhere about a TN store keeping all free tickets instead of giving them to the customers.

    I would probably call your nearest lottery office.

     

    While in theory that is not something impossible, it definitely seems I would have won the MegaMillions long before something this odd.

          Not sure why this is still going on. Aren't there any special group FBI or CIA get involve in the investigation. TN is trying to win back player's confidence and at the same time taking this to their advantage to take more money. The odds of having one person getting two same quick picks numbers, in different stores is quite large. TN being fishy again.

            Ok they are going to print so many losing tickets for all of Tennessee,knowing they wont win.....if that happened to you in one town I bet  alot of people out there have the same numbers as you and me.......They are a joke......They need to all go to jail for stealing from us.But what can you do,stop playing like I did,you will thank yourself for it.I pat myself on the back daily...

                my bad I'm sorry,  I read it too fast,

                 

                If you were buying powerball #s and they give you a standard lotto ticket then the odds are much better.

                 

                For every 20 million powerball tickets that TN's area sells, there really is a decent expectation that 2 of the free regular lotto tickets will have the identical numbers.  In other words, suppose Tennesee's area sells 20 million powerball tickets, that means 4 million free regular lotto tickets are given out to customers (or should be legally), and since the odds of winning the regular lotto are about 1:7million, then the odds are excellent that someone in TN will have two identical free lotto tickets, which you did.

                congratulations to you !  unless the lottery machine fouled, you just matched your own lotto numbers !!

                  That's funny...  I bought $5 worth of PB ticket last week and I got the free QP...  It was like 17-18-26-33-36-42...  After that drawing I bought my $12 multidraw to return to school this week.  The QP numbers were 16-17-25-32-35-41....  Odd.  Maybe that was the "LUCK OF THE DRAW?"

                  How are you going to win if you don't play?

                      Because I buy a few PB tickets, I had to do a double take this afternoon while looking at my free TN lotto plus ticket. I thought I saw identical tickets but quickly dismissed it as similar numbers. I am going to take a closer luck. The odds are too high to get identical numbers in a hand full of tickets.

                        My tickets are not identical. The numbers tend to look alike.

                              My tickets are not identical. The numbers tend to look alike.

                              01 12 24 33 43 51  and  10 15 21 33 34 42

                              Thinking of...

                              Are they identical or do they just look alike?
                              They have the same digits.
