I asked the clerk at a new local gas/convenience store for three quick picks with three draw dates (advanced play).  She handed me three separate tickets with one set of numbers on each, and each for three draws.  Though I really wanted all three on one ticket, no big deal.  I took the tickets.  After getting home I looked at the tickets.  Each has the same identical set of lottery numbers.  Thinking they were just reprints, I examined them more thoroughly.  Nope, not duplicates.  Each has different identification numbers, and each has varying purchase times (though only seconds apart).  Each also carries the "QP" indicating it is a quick pick.  Each also has differing, but sequential, transaction numbers. Anyone else experience this?  I will post photos after the last draw.

A bizarre aspect is the circumstance surrounding the purchase of the tickets.  My mother just passed away and while cleaning out things a few dollars were found.  I asked my two brothers if they wanted me to buy Powerball lottery ticket(s) and split three ways.  So, I end up getting three separate tickets, each with the same set of "quick pick" numbers, for us three brothers to split three ways.  Maybe this is the time... If so, thanks Mom!

    My husband says he's noticed it, maybe I'll start keeping track.

    Don't ever give up your right to keep and bare arms !

    Your right to protect yourself is your most precious RIGHT!

      Of course, pre-drawings I hope it is some kind of omen.  However, post drawings I am sure I will feel like I was cheated out of two other possible winning quick picks. Let It All Out

        For anyone who may be curious and is checking, the original tickets were for three drawings.  However, upon the urging of a friend, I played the number set for 20 advanced draws.  Hence, the reasoning for not posting a photo of them yet.  Though I don't mind sharing, it would be somewhat disappointing to find out 100 other people also won, if it were to hit.  I have saved the originals and will post upon the conclusion of the latter advance draw ticket.  As a note, my research only found two other publicized instances of this happening.  Maybe Todd is aware of more.  Also, an email to MUSL two weeks ago has gone unanswered.  Great customer service MUSL, just ignore circumstances you do not want to address.
