        Wow!  We had eight winners of the $175,000 prize here in Michigan.  Eight.  That is a huge number compared to the rest of the states.  I wonder was caused so many tickets to match here in Michigan?

          Yeah...that's great! It's been awhile since we had a jackpot winner though. Hopefully if someone wins this tuesday it will come from the great lakes state! No way I'm going to miss this tuesday's drawing!

            its amazing how usually when there are a large amount of second tier winners their will be one state that sticks out on winners....I wonder if its because that series of main numbers runs through the quick pic machine at certain points in time through- out that state....

              Fja That's a good point you have there. I wondered the same thing a while back. When the jackpot was getting up there terminals all over the state were running from sun up to closing time pumping out tickets. Since each state has a different data base it is conceivable that given enough people were purchasing tickets at the same time that the system could print duplicate winning numbers. I know the lottery machines slow down at different times here almost as if they were becoming overloaded. The data base also has to differentiate between quick picks and peoples own choices I would think. However it is possible that one player might pick his own numbers and the computer generate the same number as a quick pick either before or after play slip is ran through the machine. I do not know if all the different states data bases are tied together as one or if each state has separate data bases. For mega and or powerball..

                It can not happen too often actually.If you check past winning numbers,you will know lottery numbers  can not be rigged often.Bu sometimes maybe one or two balls may be changed
