"One set of numbers has been drawn twice in Mega Millions history: 11-14-18-33-48, though the Mega Ball number varied in each instance."

when I search these numbers I only see it drawn ONE time, in 2001. Does anyone know about this and what was the other day it repeated or repeated from? maybe when it was The BIG Game? or maybe they're wrong and it never repeated???

I am living proof that 1. sets CAN repeat and 2. it's possible to WIN using them, but that was on the Jersey Cash 5. Maybe repeating Mega sets is a possible method? although you'd be sharing it with a lot of people but if you aim for a 5 of 5 no Mega you should get your 250K.

    USAMega has all 1550 drawings going back to 09/06/1996 which includes the BigGames drawings.  I suspect if you check them they will show what my file shows.

     01/28/11 - 14 33 48 49 50    +18
     09/18/01 - 11 14 18 33 48    +22
     10/16/98 - 06 07 14 18 33    +08

    Those five numbers as a group have only come up once.  They could come up again later tonight, check after the MM drawing.

      Only time I have ever had whole sets of numbers repeat is in bingo.

        Fact is groups of four and five numbers repeating are so rare in MegaMillions and PowerBall that one could use previous drawings as a filter for picking combinations for future drawings.  In fact I've never seen a group of five repeat even when their two files were combined.
