I use to play quick picks, but got tired of getting tickets with repeat numbers, etc. There were times

when I would buy 10 quick picks but only get about 10 different numbers.



Now, I pick my own in every lottery. In most instances, I play enough sets to cover all the numbers. I keep

the playslips in my car and play the same combinations for several drawings.



One day I'm going to get all 5 or 6 winning numbers on the same line!! But, maybe not!



I do a quickpick, since I only buy one ticket and it is convenient.  I mean the odds are so high (~1:41million) for the JP in the CA SuperLotto, that it really does not make sense for me to spend $5 or $10 per draw.  Once MM is available here in CA, I will buy a $1 ticket per draw for MM too - where the odds are even higher!

It only takes one ticket to win, and if it is God's will that I be blessed in that manner, then it does not matter if I spend $1 or $1000 or if I pick my numbers or do a quickpick.  So to be a better steward with the money I do have, I spend only $1 on a quickpick.

        I remember when QP was not available.

        so at one point in time you had no choice but to pick your own numbers??

              Then I would carry around a playslip with the same 5+1 numbers for my $1 ticket or I would just randomly pick numbers that popped into my head.  So, I guess my lottery transactions would just take longer.

                    Well , despite the number of people playing wheeling systems and strategy numbers, a great percentage of people winning are using quick pick.  The only people who win with their numbers use either birthdays or lucky numbers, like from a fortune cookie.  Which means that they play those same numbers EVERY DRAWING for years and years.  And it was only luck that the numbers PICKED them.

                    Smart lottery winners form trust to claim their winnings.  They send an attorney to the lottery headquarters to claim the prize in trust, so that ONLY the name of the trust is revealed.  And they tell NO ONE, especially relatives.

                    If you ever win a lottery and you are single, the only person you should ever marry is someone who was truly in love with you BEFORE you won the jackpot!

                          It's easy to forget that only a submicroscopic sampling of the lottery playing population have access to the benefits of Platinum Memberships with LP, and all the histories, statistics, etc to help them come up with numbers on their own.

                          If that weren't the case, I'd imagine there's be a different approach by most.  But it would be difficult, maybe impossible to do all that by hand.

                          The Bernalillo Newspaper had an article several months ago about an elderly Hispanic man who was trying to do it all by hand.... had a deck of posterpaper charts he'd made with lines all over them, numbers, a spiderweb to anyone not knowing what they were looking at.

                          But the paper said the guy made a convincing argument there are things going on with those numbers that most people don't notice..... said the guy thoroughly believes he is going to figure it out well enough to win.

                          That article came out before I got back into doing this...... I recall sort of chuckling about it.  If I knew how to find that guy I'd contact him and suggest he get a comp if he doesn't have one, and a Platinum Membership.

                            Quick-Picks are just as good a method as using a System or Software considering that players have won Jackpots using all 3,it doesn't really matter which method won the most jackpots all 3 work so just choose the one you like best and hopefully it'll work for you.
