I've got no problem with quickpicks on the (ridiculously high) big jackpot games. However, if you buy more than one ticket (one line) on a quickpick, you will always find clusters. That is, I believe, due to the "not really random" nature of the RNG that makes the quickpick.
THe way around this is to tell the clerk you want "x number" of separate $1.00 tickets. SO if you want to spend 2 bucks, ask for teo separate tickets. From what I've seen, that extra second or so that it takes the clerk to produce the second (or third, etc.) ticket seems to do more to "reset" the RNG than anything. From my experience, it does the trick.
On the other hand, you can also simply pick randomly on the playslip without much thought, and it will be just as valid as any quickpick.
