        That's odd.  It could happen randomly, but, of course, that's very unlikely.  It may have been a malfunction in the machine.

        I don't think anyone can tell you why it happened.  I'd get another quick pick since that one is basically a duplicate.

            Check the the play slip you used and its instructions, it may have the option of replaying the five numbers with an auto pick PB#.  Some states have the options of auto pick on one or both sets of numbers.

            Also remember to check your tickets accuracy before leaving the retailer.

                      CheersHi..having sold lottery tickets in N C since the lottery began here..I can tell you I have seen this a couple of times...the scanner picks up and reads your numbers..if you got a different powerball number then you got a good ticket..not a duplicate...I always told my customers if you want a quick pck on powerball..best to get it on seperate tickets..the numbers will be more random...which is what you want...try that next draw...best of luck...but sorry to tell you..the 245 million is mine...lol...

                          If it doesn't win, at least save it and maybe post a scan of it.

                          That'd be a rare sight for a QP & SP to be so similar on the same ticket.

                          In neo-conned Amerika, bank robs you.
                          Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms should be the name of a convenience store, not a govnoment agency.

                              Good point, if those 5 number come out - DOUBLE the winnings!!!!
