If I created several programs of producing random numbers.And sum of those numbers are winning numbers,shouldn't they duplicate on the excel sheets for at least some of the random number generators? Each generator has it's own excel sheet

    you need to be a bit more specific.  in a game like MM or PB there are over 100 million possible combinations. how many combinations are you generating?  are you providing a good seed to start your random generator?

    it is certainly possible to have a duplicate combination or two, it is also possible that there would be none.  the more combinations you create the greater the chance of duplication

      Thanks for the reply.I notice that some  of the winning numbers appear every game on multiple excel sheets.The only problem is that you also have some of the loosing numbers.lol

        They can't all be winners.
