The odds are against something this odd.

    1. C'mon — what's not to like?

      Hoof it over to Facebook to join the weird news herd.

A Nebraska Lottery official says the winning numbers for the state's Pick 3 lottery on Tuesday were exactly the same as the winning combination from the night before.

Lottery spokesman Brian Rockey says one of two lottery computers that randomly generate combinations picked the numbers 1, 9 and 6 — in that order — for Monday night's drawing. He says the other computer picked the same three numbers Tuesday in the same sequence.

The odds of such an occurrence? One in a million.

Rockey says one person won the game's top prize of $600 Monday — but didn't win again the next night. Three other people won Tuesday's prize.
