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!
I'm feeling a $312,000,000.00 jackpot win coming my way!
