Why would I be happy because a machine gave me the number 33 as the powerball on all 3 tickets????
I'm not one of those people that think the lottery is your best friend and they can do no wrong.
Well, I reread my post and found that I didn't say anything about the lottery being my best friend. Didn't say they can do no wrong either.
I'm just stating common sense facts. They can't scour thousands of tickets sold and make a ball machine draw the least sold set. Now, if the winning numbers were computer generated, I would be wary. But even then, it would be pretty hard for them to scour tickets from all the states that sell them.
The tickets you bought were generated from a stand alone rng that is not connected to any computers located where the PB numbers are drawn. You happened to buy 3 tics with the same PB number. Kinda rare, but, it is a QP.
In the end, I realize what the odds are and I just don't get too worked up about losing. That's why I play one, sometimes two lines, and that's it. I play to be in the game. And I play all the jackpot games that way.
