What are the chances that the same winning numbers drawn for MM would be drawn for PB?

If you pick your own numbers, do you play the same numbers in both MM & PB?

    Thought about it occasionally, but decided not a good idea.

        I had a previous ticket that I played on mm and a few weeks later the numbers came out on pb.  It can happen.

         

        I've gone up to the machine before putting money in and realizing one time that I hit 8 draws by accident and saying oh crap I need $100 more to put in.  Forget to take a picture on my phone with the numbers I wanted to play and starting over.

          It would be no chance because PB has the has more PB from 1 to 26.

          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!

              Chances are slim to none.

              I recall seeing a story on here about a lady that had the winning numbers for one JP game, but the ticket was for the 'other' game. I don't recall the details.

              But, on the subject of cross-games, I follow MM, PB and cali SLP. There are actually patterns between them. For example: a few draws back MM and SLP both had '44' repeat right the same time. SLP's last night had the same 3 numbers show up as 6 draws ago (40, 44, 46), where PB had repeats last night from 4 draws back (9 and 11).

              Sometimes the MB's match between them, or at least contained in the WB's drawn (and vice-versa).

              Bring up results of each of those games for say the last 20 draws and I think you'll find the commonality to be uncanny.

              One of the things that make JP games difficult to track patterns in is the fact the lotteries are drawn from random ball sets and random machines. Tracking multiple games' results sort of averages or helps factor that out.

                It would be no chance because Mega Millions has white balls from 1 to 75.

                  How can you say no chance?  Both games have 1 to 69 white balls in common and 1 to 15 color balls in common, so the chance of the same set within those number ranges winning both MM and PB is certainly possible, although unlikely.

                    MM had 2 numbers repeat (41 and 44) on this last draw from 5 draws back.  Like i said, the occurances between these 3 games is uncanny.
