    Right now, I'm 24 years old, but I have to listen to my dad's demands. I've played the lotto since I turned 18 when my dad was 49 years old. My dad wants to pick his own numbers, but demanded me to buy him his tickets.

      so now that would make your dad 55 correct??

      and you say your dad DEMANDED you to buy his tickets?

      why can't he get them??

      whats the reason you have to listen to your dads demands?

        Dad can't walk very far due to leg and foot pain. I have to buy his tickets for PB, CA SLP, and/or MM for him since I have time before draw.

              bought a hundred bucks of qp's,won about five times,so it shows if 100 people bought one dollar qp's a piece,then 95 people would lose,but 5 won with qp's,no one ever knows how many losers there are with qp's!

                With these odds, I definately wouldn't do quick pick. I rather pick my own numbers because QPs will likely lose. So many QPs have won the jackpot, but also lots of losers than picking your own.

                  you cannot eliminate computer drawings,then the lottery would not survive,after all the computers pick the numbers thet haven't been chosen by players,and those balls hit,even though it's supposed to be random it isn't really.

                    I like PB going to a ball machine when they select the winning numbers and picking my own numbers before the draw. However, when people do QPs, the computer chooses the numbers in a random draw before the PB drawing. I think computerize the drawings in any type of jackpot game has a better shot of winning the jackpot than ball machines.

                      More times than any I have always pick my own numbers! I do every so often throw in a QP in the middle of a 5 dollar ticket. I have 2 tickets 5 lines each (10 dollars) that I run at all times for either MM or PB, it's only when I buy extra tickets that I throw in a QP or two!
