If you've got no idea what the odds of having the 16 repeat in 3 lines how can you possibly make a claim about whether or not it could happen randomly?

He can't.

He just likes to run his yapper.

     If your odds are 1 in 1 million.

    Then you just increased your odds by having three 16's

    to 3 in 3 million.

    So This person had a 3/3 million chance to win then thats a greater than normal chance.

    If this make no sense, then I empathize with you.

    Then this explains why I leave the mathematics to the more inclined.

    I dont get free plays, they are thrust upon me unwanted.

    The point here is that before we assume that this guy played total quickpicks, lets see if he has any Lottery Mettle.

    I have won money with partial quickpicks.  So its not impossible this person did so.  Just on open question.  Not like the dictatorial claims of Thrifty.

        Sorry KY,

        I leave the odds calculations for more mathematicaly inclined people,

        ie.  Stack, RJOh, SergeM.

        Assuming the RNG selects any five of 5,006,386 combinations, the odds of having three lines using the same number depend on the random selection process so I doubt will find the odds that way. One number could be on all five lines and be a no show on the next 294 five line tickets. We can check all of the results in the 59 number matrix and see how many times one number was drawn three time in five consecutive drawings and divide that number by the total drawings to give us the percentage.

        Probably a much better way to find the percentage than buying 1 million 5 line QPs and counting the threes on them.

          HERE IS THE PROOF.

          I don't know about Missouri, but here in Florida, when you do a partial QP. To the right of the QP will be the number of quickpicks you chose, Q3 or Q5.All the QP's after the 5 values makes me believe the ticket was a quickpick. If I could scan one of my losing tickets, I would do it.

              Isn't this a sort of 'so what' situation?
              Seems to me that if I got hung up on 'odds' everytime I choose numbers to play, as suggested by my tracking charts, I'd hang it up and go watch TV.
              What I need is a useful answer to the 'what's next' question, regardless of or despite the odds.
              Have fun - screw the odds.

                Its a QP, the AZ tickets look the same as this one.....
