WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO INCREASE YOUR CHANCES OF WINNING:

  • PLAYING THE SAME IDENTICAL SET OF NUMBERS EACH TIME EVERY TIME ALL THE TIME
  • OR CHANGING THE NUMBERS
  • OR DOING A COMBO WITH A REGULAR SET OF NUMBERS AND A QUICK PICK?

    I think they both have the same odds in winning, since after all, the numbers are chosen at random.

     

    Having said that... QP has been letting me down for a while now. I've been changing up the store I buy them at but that doesn't help either. At the same time, my personally chosen numbers don't do that well either. I guess I'm just unlucky.

      Playing the same set of numbers is a good way IMO because it will eventually hit. Maybe not in your life time or in a 100 life time but it will hit eventually. Lol.

      Who knows...maybe the day you decide to switch up the numbers you play, your set in stone numbers might hit. Lol.

          I have one set of numbers I stick with for the Fantasy 5, but everything else is qp.

          "...a chance to push everything aside, the circumstances that've controlled our lives, and do it our way now. Good, bad or otherwise. You'll maybe get lost in it, tied up in it a little bit, but if you work your way through that the real you shows up, I think. Maybe what's at your core deep down, maybe that comes out. Maybe that's what it's about." Mike Pace

            If you use the same set of numbers you got a reasonably good chance of hitting lower prizes once in a while.

            If you only want first prize you might as well play quick pick.

              • PLAYING THE SAME IDENTICAL SET OF NUMBERS EACH TIME EVERY TIME ALL THE TIME

                    long term, first looking how far in the past some part of the sequence (> 1) has hit, then going in with smallest possible bets into the future (this is what I do)

              • OR CHANGING THE NUMBERS

                    probably most players manual strategy, psychologically one thinks that one increases chances by "wild" permutations (government loves this strategy, increases their   revenue, players tend to play larger sums of money, its an illusion)

              • OR DOING A COMBO WITH A REGULAR SET OF NUMBERS AND A QUICK PICK?

                    very similar to the above, saves time, takes away fun from the whole thing, reduces possibility of psychic phenomena (that I strongly believe in under right circumstances)

                I don't think one way is better then another or has a better chance of winning. I tend to pick my own numbers and then I usually only stick with them for a week or two at a time.

                      I stick with the same losing numbers.  I hate changing tradition.

                        LOL! Gasmeterguy. Well, they have to come eventually, right? It's just a matter of patience.

                          It ultimately depends on one's system of play to be perfectly honest. If you'll take your time and wait for a particular draw that "works" consistently then, you can play the same set of numbers each time. But, this requires being patient and waiting for the numbers that work best to show up. Otherwise, you'll need to change each time and adjust according to the draw.

                          Any way you decide to play can win or lose but, the idea is to win as consistently as possible while generating a descent profit. Now, YOU WILL LOSE BUT, as long as it doesn't cost you to lose then you'll be okay. What this means is that you'll only lose back a portion of the profits you've made. If you don't have to go back into your pocket again to play the next draw, then you're on top of your game. I'm telling you some good stuff.

                            Hitting a jackpot is luck.

                            Not hitting anything isn't bad luck, it's just the most likely result.

                            Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                            There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                              I've played the same identical set of numbers and (1) QP for: MM/SL and Fantasy 5.  I will keep on playing this way because my chosen numbers will eventually hit very soonWink  GOOD LUCK TO YOU!!
