Hi, All,

I bought a $5 quick pick Mega Millions for Mar 18, 2011 drawing in a 7/11 store, I just noticed one of 5 lines with the following numbers:

09 14 33 38 42 MEGA 38   <----- note 38 appears twice

Is this a problem? If this is a problem ticket, does that imply something wrong with the system? In that case, is the drawing still valid?

I am a new comer here, I will greatly appreciate your opnions on this.

        Quite often when I pick my numbers I have the same money ball as the same as my winning ball.

        Good luck to you , and welcome to Lottery Post.

                  Here is the payout chart for Mega Millions(from Powerball.com). The mega ball can be the same as one of the white balls because the mega ball is picked from a separate pool of numbers.

                      Not sure about Mega, but in Powerball, over the last year, a white ball has hit in conjunction with the same number red ball six times.
