    Check your newspaper, TV, state lottery website, lotto retailer, LP, ask your spouse, girl friend, boyfriend, uncle, aunt, cousin, nephew, niece

    parents, siblings, daughter, son, son in-law, daughter in-law, boss, friend, neighbor, congressman, senator, Governor, Secretary of State, Secretary

    of Defense, Secretary of Commerce, Secretary of Labor, President of the United States, face book, twitter, your local lottery office, Powerball and

    MegaMillions website, or if all else fails ask your dog or pet turkey.  Turkey

      mc is right, the information is available in 1000 places.

      Of course its hard to answer a question when the person doesn't stick around to explain what it is they are talking about because if they are saying does a combination hit twice in a row that would be a question for RL to readily answer with his wealth of historical knowledge he gets from USA MEGA and most likely the same numbers have NEVER come up twice much less in two consecutive drawings but as I said RJ can tell you ALL THINGS historical lottery if you don't have the ability to speak to your lotto retailer, LP,  your spouse, girl friend, boyfriend, uncle, aunt, cousin, nephew, niece, parents, siblings, daughter, son, son in-law, daughter in-law, boss, friend, neighbor, congressman, senator, Governor, Secretary of State, Secretary of Defense, Secretary of Commerce, Secretary of Labor, President of the United States, face book, twitter, your local lottery office, Powerball and Mega Millions website

                You could sent such a question to the lottery website, they have spoke persons who will try to answer your questions but there's a lot of information that's just not interesting to them to be worth tracking.  It's kinda like when a child asks "why is the sky blue?".  There is a answer but most people just don't care and couldn't or wouldn't try to answer the question if asked.

                As to the answer to your question, there are many stories about players who have bought certain combinations for consecutive drawings for years until they finally hit a jackpot.  As far a the same combination coming up in consecutive drawings, that has never happened in a jackpot game.  In pick5 and lower prize games, combinations do occasionally repeat but not consecutive. 

                If this kind of information interest you, just do some searches of old news articles posted here.

                 * you don't need to buy more tickets, just buy a winning ticket *

                  Israel drew the exact same numbers twice in one month:

                  http://www.lotterypost.com/news/222134?q=israel

                  Today's winning 3-ball is going to be a number between 000 and 999.

                  In a lot of states, lotteries benefit education. That makes the REAL winners the only people who can't play!

                    Is this asking about multi-draw tickets winning one of the top two prizes? It likely has, though I am unsure of the possibility of anyone finding exactly what drawing it happened in. The chances of it happening are most probably lower than any other ticket winning the same amount due to less people playing multi-draws.

                      Thanks, ttech10, yes, that's what I was asking.  I had done a search but didn't come up with anything. 

                      Thanks for your nice reply.

                          Yes, there was a store owner many years ago that won using a multi draw ticket.   If you go back through the news story histories, you can find the story.  Good luck in your draws!

                            Do tickets bought for consecutive drawings ever win the top two prizes

                            Yes i believe it was powerball a guy bought tickets for a huge pot with advance plays and someone hit that drawing and he won the next drawing for the low money pot.

                            Big John says. You don't hit the number. The number hits you!!!!

                                           I'm not Big John, I'm Four4me, Big John's a friend.

                              If I ever win this is the way it will be, with a multi-draw ticket.

                               

                              I don't think it will happen this week though as 4 of the numbers I have are 22-23-24-28. I usually don't check my numbers until Saturday, but I had a dream that led me to wanting to check them this time.
