Another member brought this up in the challenge.   Didn't see this coming.

mega was 3.   3x12=36  3x13= 39     3x14=42    3x15=45     3x16=48

Does anyone know the last time this happened?   I guess you learn something every day.  Was this planned?   Way to go whoever in Texas.

Something similar separated by factor of 3, but off by 1.

2014-10-10  02 32 35 50 59 - 03

02 32 35 50 59 → (02+1) (32+1) (35+1) (50+1) (59+1) = 03 33 36 51 60

03 33 36 51 60 → (03 / 3) (33 / 3) (36 / 3) (51 / 3) (60 / 3) = 1 11 12 17 20

One other that had exact factors of 3.

2015-07-10  24 27 45 51 54 - 08

24 27 45 51 54 → (24 / 3) (27 / 3) (45 / 3) (51 / 3) (54 / 3) = 8 9 15 17 18

And the current event.

2016-10-11  36 39 42 45 48 - 03

36 39 42 45 48 → (36 / 3) (39 / 3) (42 / 3) (45 / 3) (48 / 3) = 12 13 14 15 16

Interesting thing is these all had a 10 in the date, but could be coincidence.

This was a very peculiar combination. If I was a 1-2-3-4-5-6 player, I would, for sure, be in it for Fri/Sat!

That really is a trip especially because they are random dropping balls and not a computerized algorythmn. Thanks for noticing and, now I can look for other similarities. I did notice 3's in Fantasy 5 once, like all the digits totaled a 3 when broken down. Like in numerolgy. And it happened a couple times in a row. 3 seems to be THEE number of the Universe..lol..
