So i purchase a couple quick picks on a fairly regular basis and what I have noticed when checking my numbers that I seem to be getting allot of the same numbers over and over. My web browser keeps cache of the numbers previously submitted and allot of times i don't even have to type the number since it is allready been typed previously. Now my  question is does this happen by chance or is it because I always purchase quick picks from the same store or something else?  It seems to be to much of a coincidence. i personally think its because i go to the same store. any thoughts on this?

    If you buy $5 worth of Powerball QP's per draw (25 white balls selected).  With only 59 possible white balls to be selected your numbers will start to repeat after the 2nd or 3rd draw.

      Ohio Classic Lotto(6/49) had 659 drawings of which 368 had a number from the previous drawing.

      Ohio Rolling Cash5(5/37) had 2237 drawings of which 1168 had a number from the previous drawing.

      MegaMillions(5/56) had 605 drawings of which 223 have a number from the previous drawing.

      The point is depending on the matrix size, it's quite common for combinations to have one of two numbers of another combination, even the randomly picked winning combinations that are back to back often share a common number or two.  If you start recording those QPs combinations you'll see while your QPs have one of two numbers of the previous QPs you purchased, they are by no means close to being the same combinations.

        Guess I had not put much thought in to it. I had recently formated my pc so I only have maybe 25 or 30 QP cached and just thought it was odd to see repeats so soon.

          Coincidence: The accidental occurence of events at the same place or time.

          Try buying tickets for the same drawing in multiple Stores.

            I tried those cinobytes at Arby's.

            They were ok but when you bite one end all the cinnamon flavored glop comes out the other end and goes on your lap.

              YEAH WELL POWER BALL WILL REPEAT OFTEN BUT DO YOU MEAN LIKE ALL 5 NUMBERS ONA QUICK PICK?

               

              that should only happen 1 in every 40 odd million tickets

              2014 = -1016; 2015= -1409; 2016  = -1171; 2017 = ?  TOT =  -3596

              keno historic = -2291 ; 2015= -603; 2016= -424; 2017 = ? TOT = - 3318
