Hello. I was wondering if lotteries release this information to the public? I've looked around on the websites and do not see it, and I think it would be interesting to know how many winners (jackpot or not) were numbers that were quick pick/ self pick. I know on jackpot winners, this information is usually detailed in the media, but I'd like to know about non-jackpot winners as well......thanks y'all.

    Ive seen on some interviews that they were quick picks....but I wonder too...I haven't really heard too many that say they won from self picks....but I usually do both myself.......just in case LOL....Watch some of those Lottery changed my life shows....I think they say sometimes on there that they were quick picks....but also Im wondering how many tickets.........that they are buying when they win....that's good info to know too..

      Most lottery websites say in their Q&A sections that 70% of their tickets are quick picks and so are their winners.

      * you don't need more tickets, just the right ticket * 
      * your best chance at winning a lottery jackpot is to buy a ticket *

        Florida reports it as a QP after the person's name, for the jackpot winners.

          Thanks Y'all...I wish they'd post this information not just for jackpot winners, but for those that win 5# without the powerball/megaball as well...would be interesting to know just how many winners are those that select the numbers, but guess the overall percentage info will have to suffice...thanks for responding!

            Most press releases of winners state whether the player used quick picks or used own numbers. I know it because I always look for that detail whenever I read those kinds of articles Naughty

              Texas does for winners in state.  Here's one for the Powerball drawing Dec. 26th:

              Where Sold:
              Prize
              Level
              Texas
              Retailer
              Texas
              Retailer
              Address
              Texas
              Retailer
              City
              Texas
              Retailer
              Zip Code
              Quick
              Pick
              5 of 57-ELEVEN STORE # 16559A102 KAUFMAN RDROCKWALL75087Yes / Yes

              I believe that yes/yes under the Quick Pick category is not just for the QP but also "yes" for cash option.
