State the amount of money you spend on QPs, and the State you buy them from.

I spend $5, and buy in California and Arizona.  My QPs consistently have ONE winning number.

    Looks like my poll question was truncated.  The second part should read:


    How many winning numbers were consistently within your QPs?

      I don't know about "straight" QP's, but I can tell you that when I Wheel certain numbers in my Wheel, and have them run my last card with two or three QP's on it, most of the numbers I had in my regular Wheel, came up in the QP numbers.

      Explain that one... Happens all the time.

        If I buy 5 Qps, I'm lucky to have 2 jackpot numbers among the 25 numbers.  Based on this, I'd like to suggest that if anyone buys QPs, they post the #s here.  I'd like to try to use them to eliminate certain #s, together with my other strategy.  I base this on my experience of a great preponderance of dead QP tickets.  I've done this on a limited basis in the past, but I feel like a chuimp buying a bunch of QP tckets for a drawing knowing that most of them won't have a single number in the drawing.  Any interest?  Each could buy and post just a single ticket-no phony posts please.  That won't break anyone.

          Of course, I suggested the QP postings only if the poster uses QPs #s in their strategfy.  I wouldn't expect anyone to buy and post Qps strictly as a largess.

                i haven't noticed differences in 'prize consistency' with my-picks vs quick-picks...

                i guess that's one of the things that attracts me to the lottery...the fact that a nice match can occur (quickly and out of the blue) at any time - irregardless of past ticket performance

                ... the lottery never fails to surprise!
