I'm new to this forum and site. I did a search to see if anyone else had ever discussed this topic and didn't find anything, but my apologies if it's not a new discussion.

My interest lately with the PB is in frequency where 4 of the 5 white balls match any other 4 in any other particular PB draw. I created a macro in Excel to give me all examples of this (much higher percentage than anticipated).

Mostly, in the public's version of drawn numbers, quads don't show up as often as when you have the testpb.doc data of pre and post-tests as well. In my opinion, this leads me to believe that they pick which one of the 6 draws is the "draw" draw based on “certain” criteria (like this).

December 6, 2008 (during ball sets 25-28), an exact match of all 5 showed up between pre-tests (March 22, 2006). Exactly 3 weeks later, (about 2 years past average ball set change), they changed the ball set AND increased the numbers from 55 to 59… coincidence?

I have the 2002-2003 and 2005-2010 data for testpb.doc, but I'd really like to find someone who has everything before 2005 as I've been told by PB that they have had pre and post-tests since the beginning of the game. Who else has researched quad duplication frequency?

    If you check just the official PB drawings with itself going back to 04/22/92, you'll find:

            TOTAL MATCHES
                      WB       PB
           MATCH  0 = 1020699  23666
           MATCH  1 = 587963   13519
           MATCH  2 = 107313   2396
           MATCH  3 = 7169     202
           MATCH  4 = 150      2
           MATCH  5 = 2        1

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

     12/27/00 - 15 22 24 32 39    +18
     04/03/93 - 15 22 24 32 39    +18

    I checked the above figures with USAMega file.

      How did you get the other pre and post draws, but not 2004? I would actually like to have that testpb.doc data, where do I get it?

        Go to Powerball.com. On the left side, click "Powerball Numbers". At the bottom of the page there is a box with a paragraph that reads:

        Every attempt is made to ensure that this list of numbers is accurate, the official winning numbers are recorded in the official draw files as certified by an independent accounting firm. Winning numbers are not official until confirmed by the auditing firm of Harvey, Covington & Thomas, LLC.  Click here if you are having trouble seeing the most recent numbers. 

        To download testpb.doc, right-click the red circle and then choose "Save Target As"(for IE) or "Save Link As"(for Firefox). Save the file where you want it to be saved.

          Thank you, Guru! I've been to the site many times, and have even seen that paragraph, but had no idea that doc was there! Wink
