I try to buy my tickets the day after the previous draw. A friend waits until the last moment. Neither of us are millionaires. My mind keeps telling me that most winners choose QP, so I choose QP; still not a millionaire. Some people use the same numbers over and over, so I use several numbers over and over; still not a millionaire

Cheers

I only trust myself - and that's a questionable choice

    Yea I heard that 70% of the winners or so are QP winners. This coming from lottery headquarters. So I usually play two tickets, one with all my numbers, and the other QP. That keeps the field level. :)

      I choose all of the above. However, I don't choose many quick picks because my dad tells me to buy his picks in PB, MM, and CA SLP. I rather use my own picks by using a custom ball dispenser using paper for random. I also use numbers based on the family age and dates.

        One of my tickets, I always play my SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER, plus four (4) Chinese fortune cookie numbers; the cookie read: Luck is coming your way (and that was on Thursday, July 21, 2005.)

        My other ticket is a QUICK PICK!  And that's how the cookie crumbles!

              Birthdates are common option, and I have read where a lot of people hit on them.  That big winner in Ohio a few years back used a variation on the birthdates.  It helped validate her win over the crook who said she had one.
