    From what I have gathered, most people let the computer pick their numbers. Plus, from the winner stories I have read, most of the winners won this way, just like most of the winners won purchasing five or less tickets. I feel quick picks work best for me because I have tried to pick numbers on my own, and have had nothing but bad luck (sometimes I will get 2 out of 6..lol)

    You mentioned MEGA MILLIONS....I just got several quick pick tickets for several draws (multi draws) and I have my fingers crossed for a miracle. Yes, I know the odds are 1:134 million, but if it is my lucky time to win, the odds will not stop me.

    to be continued........

        Yes, I always play quick picks for Powerball and Mega Millions too.  Since I usually only buy one ticket per drawing (two if jackpot is >= $100 million and < $250 million; three if jackpot is >= $250 million), it's too much work to use "systems."  I've performed an analysis on the historical numbers but didn't know which conclusions to draw from them, so I just figured, "screw it," and just continue to do quick picks and hope I'm in the right place at the right time.
