### Have those numbers ever shown up in a real lottery like Powerball and-or Mega Millions?

A lotto game, including Powerball and Mega Millions, selects
numbers from a specific range, such as 1 to 39 or 1 to 49 or 1 to
53. Each lotto system can have a different range of numbers. Also,
the Powerball and Mega Millions both have separate ranges of
numbers for the last number of a draw.
Powerball chooses 5 numbers from the range 1 through 59, and
then the special Powerball number is from 1 through 35.
Mega Millions chooses 5 numbers from the range 1 through 75, and
then the special Mega number is from 1 through 15.
It is important to remember that any set of numbers that fit the
criteria is equally likely to be the winning numbers for a
particular draw. Each game takes great care to ensure that the
results are completely random.
