    I'm shocked there was no jackpot winner as well.  However, it is not surprising there were 22 match 5+0 winners, which was about 3.5 times the number expected given only 34.4 million tickets were sold.

      This is a rarity that all numbers drawn were under 31. (the birthday numbers) Other than that, you should not be expecting that many second prize

      winners again for quite some time.

        WAIT, aren't all number combinations supposed to have an equal chance??

            yeah when drawing the numbers out the barrel , they all have an equal chance. but what we are comparing the numbers that come out of peoples heads to the ones out the barrel.  and a signifficant more numbers form 1-31 are selected than over 30. thus when the games barrel numbers are all under 31, we are all suprised no one picked it.

            2014 = -1016; 2015= -1409; 2016 JAN = -106; FEB= -81; MAR= -131; APR= - 87: MAY= -91; JUN= -39; JUL=-134; AUG= -124; SEP = -123; OCT= -84  NOV=- 73 TOT= -3498

            keno historic = -2291 ; 2015= -603; 2016= JAN=-32, FEB= +12 , MAR= -86, APR = -77. MAY= -48, JUN= -29, JUL=-71; AUG = -52; SEPT= -43; OCT = +56 NOV = -33 TOT= -3297

              I'm old enough that I can also use the birth years (1-59) in my birthday numbers and none of the birthday numbers I used came up last night although three of them were within one number.

                    I'm old enough that I can also use the birth years (1-59) in my birthday numbers and none of the birthday numbers I used came up last night although three of them were within one number.

                    LOL  I actually use one of those numbers for my birth years. Although they are birth years from several years ago, that I continue to play as my

                    regular self-pick number.

                     

                    Three people hit for a million in my state, sadly I was not one of them.  Crying  Not one of my numbers came up, I'll take that to be a sign that Saturday

                    will be a better outcome.

                      The amounts are REALLY on the roll now......

                      I get 100,000,000+ after taxes.

                      Only problem is that I have to get drunk, go to strip clubs and generally lose my mind. :-)

                        I agree with you. I have been playing birthday numbers whenever I buy quick pick tickets. Someone won a million dollar with those numbers last night by playing quick picks.
