I believe all this talk that self picks are better than quick picks is garbage.

If it were better to use self picks then somebody would have won already because I'm sure many people are out there picking their own numbers. But still we haven't had a winner since 10/3/12.

If it were true that quick picks don't win, then nobody would ever have won a jackpot using quick picks but we all know that this is not true.

Every set of numbers drawn all have the same odds of winning, 1 in 175,223,510. Every combination is legit no matter how it was arrived at.

I wish Todd would run an article about how many jackpots have been won with self picks vs quick picks. The last time I read something on that subject it was approx 50-50.

Finally, if anyone is out there selling a method that wins, ask them how many jackpots they have won. If they have not won at least one jackpot in their lifetime, then its bull crap.

If someone had a method for winning jackpots, they would have won multiple jackpots by now. At least one jackpot per year. I know that is what I'd do.

It's all luck!!!

 

good luck

Do you have evidence of your article?

Was that a Gail Howard article?

I wish Todd would...

I wish todd also would change the emoticon of the leprechaun.

He has a three leaf clover, similar to what you have posted.  A three leaf clover is not lucky.

Its a four leaf clover that is lucky.  I once found a four leaf clover.  It took me about an hour of searching in the grass to find it.  But if you seek you will find.  I am not sure what happened to it.  I should have saved it.

So I wish Todd would change the clover of the leprechaun to a four leaf clover, instead of a three leaf clover.

Also most enlightened people would know that a horshoe is suppose to be turned up so that it can catch the luck.

Your horseshoe is pointed down. So that would lead me to believe that as a golfer, you have spent too much time in the Sun Smiley which also lead me to believe that your brain is FrÏÊÐ, and that you dont really want any other golfers to win.  Least of all any golfer that live in AZ.

                Mega Millions posted the increases, but does Powerball? Or do they just wait until the drawing? When I've watched the live drawing, that's when they say the amount which is higher than the advertised jackpot.

                  I am sorry if I was harsh on golfer.

                  I just overracted to his conclusion regarding the efficacy of smart picks versus dumb picks as garbage.

                  In my opinion his opinion is rather extreme in terms of the word "garbage".

                  What did Benjamin Franklin say?  One mans garbage is another mans gold.  Was that BF?

                  I dunno.

                  Good luck to you Mcginnin this Wed!Lep

                  I still think a clearly visible four leaf clover would do good for the Irish especially!

                      At the gas station today a guy was asking "do you sell Powerball here"??

                        I'm sure there were no serious ill intentions meant.

                            They post their increases and LP will be all over it when they do. I am predicting that the first of two increases between now and draw time will be at or around noon tomorrow.
