I wonder if this is the first time a draw game jackpot has been won with a three consecutive number string?

It would be a real shame if both of those winning tickets were QPs.  With sales being very low (because of the starting JP amount) put the odds of 'randomly generating' 2 JP winners at staggering odds - up in the billions.

Kind of a kick in the groin, having to split the starting JP.  It's barely over the amount for hitting 5+0 with a 5x megaplier.

It may actually come out to be less if you choose the cash value over the annuity - assuming that a $5M win (5+0 with max megaplier) is a $5M cash payout.

In any case, I'm sure the winners are elated.

    It has happened to California Super Lotto Plus twice (Once in March 2003 and again in December 26, 2015 to January 2, 2016).

    I hope that one $2 ticket is the only one that matches all 5 numbers plus the Powerball to win the largest Powerball Jackpot in United States history of over $2 Billion Dollars!
