It's not a surprise to me-

Quick picks are the preferred method of lottery pools. It makes it easy when purchasing the tickets.

It's also not a surprise that a quick pick won the jackpot .This is becoming more and more prevalent.

    I am surprise (a little dissappointed) that it was quick picks..On Tv it says that they have been playing for about a year...I thought that they pool in everytime they play...

     

     

    "If you think about it, the stock market and taxes are in a way a form of lottery..."

    Yes, you are correct, pumpi. They did win using a quickpick and they've been pooling their money for about a year.  However, what does quickpick have to do with a lottery pool?  Even if each of them pooled $5 each a week, they could buy 80 quickpicks.  I don't understand your comment. Are you saying that pools should only use personal numbers?  That would become very complicated. I'm guessing that most pools buy quickpicks with the money collected.

      Thats pretty weak, for one 6 million is not that much money in the lottery world, and two they have to split it up 16 ways.  The florida lottery is weak

      you're kidding - right?

      love to nibble those micey feet.

        "$31 million is not that much money. (in the lottery world) there are people who have won $100+ million jackpots, im just kinda sick of all these little hits."

        The above was posted by the same member in August on another thread.
