Mystical, pure luck or computer "tinkering"?

Recently purchased 4 tickets (lines) of the 5/41 game here in AZ. EVERY line of the Quick Pick ticket began 8-12-X-X-X. What?  Arizona is one of those states that every game is computer generated, thus the state's ranking as the worst or 2nd to last in "trustworthiness". Since taking the ping-pong ball drop off the air some years ago the level of suspicion has risen amongst players. When I received a ticket with all four (4) lines being 8-12-X-X-X, my level of suspicion went to DefCon 1. I mean really, in a 5/41 game the odds of getting 5/5 is around 790,000:1. Anybody know the odds of the $4 ticket I purchased? I'd really like to know. Mystical? Maybe, but I doubt it.
