Well, as you know, this time really didn't end up being my time. What I can't fathom is how two 1-35 numbers can repeat two times in just five weeks (14 and 27). Also, during that same time period 9 and 10 repeated back to back weeks for the white balls. The odds on that occuring must be crazy. I am sometimes on the conspiracy side for this lottery in order to boost the jackpot. By just making the powerball number repeat, they are automatically able to knock millions of tickets out from a chance to win for those who pick their numbers. It is more unlikely that a number will repeat than not repeat, so most people would bet against it. Also, the teens group repeated uncharacteristically for a 5th straight drawing (a total of 7 teen numbers in 5 drawings). I will not be playing as much for powerball any longer. I am not a part of the group who only plays over $200 million and a limit of $20. I have a strong feeling of manipulation in this lottery for publicity/ more money purposes.
