You can budget your lottery money better by spending $5, $10 relative to any amount under $5.

I like playing a full ticket which is $10. on PB.

    Thanks for posting Thrifty, I somehow had the impression that Donald played 4 QPs and one self pick.

    Donald played 4 self picks and ONE QP which should serve as a crushing blow to the beliefs of QP players.

    I believe that self pick and quick numbers have the same chance of winning. The lottery is a numbers game. I like your Donald ticket version too. You can still try both.Good luck.

      kindly notice that this is not directed at any single person

      Only the Childish and Envious people think that it is greedy for one person to win .............. how could it possibly be greedy when you have no control over whether you win!

      It IS the pure Greed of Envy to say that "no one person needs that much money" ........................ and it is Greedy if you believe that you deserve a piece of someone else's "pie" !

      ONE TICKET, ONE PERSON .......... IS MY PREFERENCE, BUT IT IS ALL NONE OF MY BUSINESS UNLESS I AM THE WINNER!

      At least a $208,725,000 wire transfer will go to my Bank Account in I win here in PA!

        I spend less on the lottery when I spend $5, $10 etc on it. It is easier to spend $1 on the lottery than $10, therefore you spend more over the long haul because $1 allows you to play more often.

          I think self picks rule over QPs but I will try both using Donald's 75/25 approach.......

                  I will have to agree with you. Self picks give you more control pertaining as to which numbers you play. The Donald's ticket proved that self picks have the chance as quick picks of winning a lottery jackpot. Quick picks win more jackpots because more players use them.

                    Yes, QP are a convenience. People want easy results, and the Donald is a hard working hillbilly.

                      It must feel great to win a lottery jackpot using self picks, and nobody else knowing how you really picked the winning numbers.

                        I Agree!  It is hard work, my Donald's took me almost two minutes of hard thinking and auto writing.  Blush

                              Exactly, the time and energy of checking the boxes brings "the force" into play. PEF so to speak...What?
