I was wondering what the percentages of winners were who won the big jackpots with quick picks vs those who selected their own numbers. Does anyone happen to know this? Just curious.....thanks.

    Many QPs I get on Cash 3 are 1 number off up or down. I use them to sway me to a certain pair I may be looking for. Personally Ive only hit twice on quick pics and just use them for a clue.

        But Most Mega Million winners win on Quick Pic...not personal selected numbers.

          This is a question with a multifaceted question and answer. The 'Quick Pick vs. Personal Pick' needs more questions answered before the actual question can be addressed. The fact is, most people are lazy and usually go to the conner store and just ask for a 'Quick Pick.' It's the ratio of people who 'Quick Pick' to 'Personal Pick' that is going to determine if there a more 'Quick Pick' winners than 'Personal Pick' winners. The 'Lottery' sure likes to proclaim that there are many more 'Quick Pick' winners than 'Personal Pick' winners; while neglecting to mention that more people choose 'Quick Picks.' Looking at percentage of 'Quick Pick' wins to total 'Quick Picks' and 'Personal Pick' wins to total 'Personal Picks', the laws of Random Selection should keep these two equal. Meaning, that if the 'Lottery' is truly a Random Selection Process, then there should be no bias toward either. This could go on-and-on ... but I'll end it here for now.

          Thanks,
