Seeing this made me wonder if an unusually high number of people won. The jackpot was estimated as $60,000, but 49 people won that day, so each won only $1,266.
Any set of numbers is just as likely to be drawn as another, but the choice of numbers can still affect whether a jackpot is shared, or how widely. An obvious set, such as 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, is no less likely to win, but it does make it more likely you'll have to share a jackpot.
