# Probability of a numbers repeating

I know it does not happen often, if ever, but has anyone ever seen any jackpot numbers ever come up twice or more? Maybe they have on the cash 5? I have not done exclusive research on the histories for repeats yet, but I did notice that it almost happened with lucky for life recently.

That is the closest I have ever seen so far. I am sure some almost had a heart attack out there who may have almost matched all 6 on both draws. :P

Thurs, September 1, 2005
Lucky For Life Lotto: 2, 11, 18, 25, 31, 35
0 players matched 6 of 6, each receiving \$3,000.00 a month for life
17 players matched 5 of 6, each receiving \$2,000.00
587 players matched 4 of 6, each receiving \$40.00

7,846 players matched 3 of 6, each receiving \$3.00

 Mon, August 22, 2005 Lucky For Life Lotto: 1, 11, 18, 24, 31, 36 0 players matched 6 of 6, each receiving \$3,000.00 a month for life 20 players matched 5 of 6, each receiving \$2,000.00 585 players matched 4 of 6, each receiving \$40.00 7,934 players matched 3 of 6, each receiving \$3.00

I wonder if any powerball numbers have ever came up twice? One night I entered hundreds of random numbers into the search history, and none had any matches. Scary...

with daily 3 the  numbers are repeaters, so if you have  a special no. that you play, continue playing that number.

good luck'

If you get yourself a Premium Membership you can search it out, though it would take some energy.
