    Good? It's the easy way....walk right up and get your ticket. And from what you read most people win using quick picks because more people are playing them.

    Bad? You're letting a machine decide for you. I like to make my own decisions. Phooey to Quick Picks. Won more using my own numbers.

      simple logic

      since it's all random,  if it doesn't matter what you do,  then each methodology has the same chance as any other pre draw.

      i like 1QP because i don't waste money or time chasing something that's random and i have no ability to "make it happen"

      pick your methodology,  throw something at it with a small amount of money,  and walk away from it free of desperation.

      when you overthink it,  desperation creeps in and that's where the vacuum cleaner of time and money comes to "clean house"

        Using quick picks is good if you want an easy way to get lottery tickets.  It's bad if, for whatever reason, you want to pick your own numbers.

        The good and bad, as I see them, are conditional.  The method itself is neither good nor bad, which it is depends on the player.  If the player wants to make no effort selecting numbers, then quick picks are good.  If the player wants to pick his own numbers, then he shouldn't get quick picks.  Either set of numbers, quick pick or player selected, is equally likely to win.

          I like quick picks, I win often on them, from $50 to $400.    Sometimes it hits the day I buy it, sometimes 3 days later.

           

          Yet, sometimes, the number takes forever to hit.

           

          And, I think, since Missouri numbers are computer generated, why not let the computer pick the numbers?  Often, the quick pick gives me 2 of the winning 3, I just have to figure out the 3rd number.  Or, it will give me, 134 and 245 drops, one up theory.

           

          Good Luck.

            There is no difference..Ping pong balls have no idea if you have a QP or self pick..Good luck cause that's what it is luck..

                                                                      Pure luck

              Tiggs and me agree on this.  I can accept the possibility that some people may be able to turn a profit on a pick 3 game by figuring out which numbers are most likely to be drawn and by knowing how to play the possibilities, but I find it exceedingly unlikely that jackpot games could be cracked in such a way.  Because the low-level payouts are low compared to the odds, since the payouts are biased toward the jackpot, where the odds and pay level out, and because jackpots are extremely hard to win, I find consistent profitability unlikely.  Pick 3 games don't have a jackpot bias, and payouts are consistent with odds, and the odds are much better, so I can entertain the possibilities.  But with the big games, those possibilities are hard to entertain, and I have to conclude that luck is the name of those games.

                Thi is rom the Pick 5 Forum, the Illinois Little lotto for 2008-2010.

                The game is drawn everyday. Quckm Picks are QP and Player's Picks are PP. People always say, "Well most of the tickets played are quick picks", which is definitley true, but results are results. Baseball managers and football coaches go with the percentages.

                Draw your own conclusions.

                2010:

                150 Jackpots

                65 PP   43.33%

                131 QP  87.33%

                ____________________________________________________

                These are 20008's and 2009's results:

                These were the 2008 results:

                146 Jackpots

                120 QP   82.19%

                91 PS      62.32%

                (includes shared jackpots)

                2008 was a leap year. So in 366 days jackpots were paid out 146 times or every 2.506 days

                82.19% of the jackpot winners were QP

                62.32% were player's selections, or PS

                2009

                365 drawings, 157 jackpots, a hit every 2.32 days.

                To date:

                157 Jackpots

                132 QP   84.07%

                87 PS      55.41%

                Here's the results for 2008, 2009, and combined:

                Two years combined

                731 drawings

                303 Jackpots

                252 QP  83.16%

                178 PS   58.74%

                Including 2010, three years combined:

                1096 drawings (2008 was a leap year)

                453 Jackpots paid

                383 QP  84.54%

                243 PP   53.6%   

                This includes shared jackpots.

                Looking at all three years it is pretty consistent, 146 jackpots, 157 jackpots, 150 jackpots. There is a drawing everyday and a jackpot is hit ever 2.42. days.

                2008

                82.19% QP  58.74% PP

                2009

                84.07% QP   55.41% PP

                2010

                87.33% QP   43.33% PP

                The stats speak for themselves.

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

                Lep

                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.

                    Oh Boy, I was just waiting for this to be posted again. It was just a matter of time.

                    What part of the following don't you understand?

                    The reason more JPs are won with QPs is because MORE PEOPLE PLAY THEM.

                    What is so difficult?

                    Let make it a little easier to understand. Hopefully this should put an end to this insanity. Hopefully...

                    Imagine for one moment that instead of an average rate of 70% of folks who played QPs, it was 99%, and 1% was from PPs........I wonder which group most of the JP wins would come from....hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.........

                        You copied and pasted before I went back and edited the post by inserting the words "with QPs" after the word "won"

                          The reason more JPs are won with QPs is because MORE PEOPLE PLAY THEM.

                          What is so difficult?

                          Let make it a little easier to understand. Hopefully this should put an end to this insanity. Hopefully...

                          Imagine for one moment that instead of an average rate of 70% of folks who played QPs, it was 99%, and 1% was from PPs........I wonder which group most of the JP wins would come from....hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.........

                              Draw your own conclusions.

                              2010:

                              150 Jackpots

                              65 PP   43.33%

                              131 QP  87.33%

                              My conclusions
                              PP 43.33% + QP 87.33% = 130.66% total picks

                              LOL This crowd would make quite the group of hecklers.
