Lottery Officials were in a panic minutes after last night's drawing once they saw the type of numbers that came. Typically referred to among lottery players as "birthday" numbers, it was all but certain that someone had won the jackpot, if not, the game would be paying out a lot in million dollar prizes.

 

Someone did win.

 

This is the 3rd time in the month of December where jackpots were won at the 50 million dollar level and this comes again at a lost to the lottery.

 

Pulling out all the stops, officials are now certain that they have identified the "glitch" - lol!

     I Agree!  Anytime the #s are under 31 they should worry. I bet there's also alot of smaller prizes they have to pay out. Most of my #s are bd and they have done pretty good.

        Are you being serious? What glitch?

        My little CinCin formula estimated the numbers would be low last night..just wish I realized they would be as low as they actually were...I tend to stay away from a line that simulates birthdays when playing PB and MM, but at this point, perhaps I should start.....need to find out more about this glitch you speak of first!Big Smile

          Here's a way to solve the problem, skew the white ball numbers.  Instead of 1-59, make all white balls go from 32-90.  Boom!  Problem solved & tell the birthday number players to suck it!

              What would be plan B if the birthday players added 31 to their birthday numbers and continued to win?

                Only allow players to buy QP tickets, that would be plan B to foil them.

                  If they went to QP only, it would eliminate the need for play slips and expensive pencils......

                    I will certainly never play again if this ever takes place. Even though most of the winners are quick picks, I still like the option of being able to choose my own numbers. In some cases, those who choose their own numbers do win, they've won because of LUCK. There is not a single program or a mind so brilliant that they can determine the next numbers drawn. At best, either can only use the probability factor . JJ makes it sound as if all the jackpots are being won because people have some magic formula they're using to win, which minimizes his chances of winning. Like I mentioned before, most of the winners are quick picks, so his logic makes no sense to me whatsoever.Bash

                        I'm with ya there.  I've been playing my birthday numbers for 20 years now without winning.  Mine range from 4 to 24, well within the range drawn last night, but I got nada!  Disapprove

                          You have to play your birthday numbers when they come up, have you checked all the previous drawings to see if you missed your chance?

                            LOL Ronnie. I'm thinking the lottery officials might have your name and birthday at the bottom of their birthday draw list. Considering there are 8 billion people in the world, it may take awhile...HAHAHAHHAHHAHHAHAHAWink (just kiddin' with ya)

                              When I saw the title of this thread I thought it was going to be about Mega Millions not getting hit and not progressing a dime. I thought that was the glitch.

                              Silly me.

                              Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                              Lep

                              There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.
