The last time this happened in PB was November 10th. I feared this as well but took some relief when I did my research. I hope it doesn't happen as I have no combination in play that reflects this combination type.
this was four draws ago. The number 32 was one of the 5 and also the powerball. I decided to play a set with a repeating number tonight. I wanted to have an "unusual" set so that if it got picked, I'd most likely be the one and only winner.
I also played a set were I only had one calendar number for the white balls and the rest of the white balls were greater than 31. Combinations like that don't happen often but if it gets picked tonight, I'd most likely be the only winner.
You have to be creative when the jackpot gets this high because so many tickets get sold and the chances of duplicate sets increase. Not that I would mind too much having to split the jackpot with another winner or two. Either way I'd be RICH!
