PHOENIX -- When you buy two lottery tickets, each with 10 "random" entries, you would expect to get two different sets of numbers. Employees at a Phoenix company who pooled their lottery money say, not only did they get the exact same quick-pick numbers twice, they got duplicate digits ten times in a row -- that's 60 consecutive numbers on two seperate tickets that were purchased at different times.

The company’s owner believes it was more than a coincidence, so he contacted 3 On Your Side. We've launched an investigation into the duplicate tickets and we'll share our findings tomorrow night. Before the record-high jackpot Mega Millions Lottery numbers are pulled, watch 3 On Your Side Friday at 5:30 on 3TV News or online here at azfamily.com.
