Todd, congratulations on getting 4+0 on your ticket on 10/28. Since you got 4+0 on your ticket, I must put you on the prediction list since my prediction center was after 8/30/05 when PB went to 5/55+1/42 matrix on 8/31/05.

    Check out my winning ticket from Mega Millions on Friday!  The drawing results were 08-17-25-28-53 + 01; check out the middle line.  Also, check out where the missing #28 is!  (One number away from $250,000, oh well.)

    Interesting also is the groupings of numbers, showing that the QP generator in the NJ lottery machine is not all that good.  Getting a 3+0 and a 4+0 on one ticket defies the odds, yet here it is.  Right now I'm loving that faulty Quick Pick RNG! Big Grin

    Todd, on your ticket I don't see QP by the white balls, but do see QP by the Mega Balls. 

    If your ticket were the result of QP-ing all the numbers, wouldn't it show on both panels? 

    Did you select and wheel the whites and QP the Mega Balls? 

    Good luck to everyone!

      Congrats Todd.  Maybe there will be a major Jackpot winner who will show their winning ticket in some fashion when they win.  I'll volunteer to show mine after I hit the MM $165,000,000.  smile

        Konane:

        NJ only offers complete Quick Picks.  You can't QP just the Mega Ball or just the five numbers.  Therefore that QP means the whole line was a QP.

        I was at the store and realized that I forgot my betslips that I normally use, so I opted for Quick Picks -- a very lucky mistake.

         

        Check the State Lottery Report Card
        What grade did your lottery earn?

          Extremely lucky and how!!  Big Grin Angel   

          As I'm sure you know GA offers partial QP to the point you can even select 1 number and let the computer do the rest.  Applicable for 5 number games and above. 

          Good luck to everyone!

              Lucky - being in the right place at the right time.

               

              Would you have won anything if you had played your betslips instead of the QPs?

                  Good question.  I would have gotten a 3+0 and two 0+1's.

                    The difference between luck and talent is in who is holding the ticket. If I had that ticket, I am convinced it was 100% talent that led me to that machine. (Congrads on the luck Todd!)

                        This is what mine looked like. Notice that on the leftmost ticket one of my algo's picked up the 17,

                        but missed 2 other #s. Also notice bar codes are the dashed lines near the bottom.

                        also they are from 3 different places!!!

                        4 wins on 3 tkts!

                              No special talent is required to bet with a QP, however matching numbers on the QP with the numbers drawn is Luck. (Better known as Luck of the Draw)

                               

                              Talent (a natural endowment or ability of superior quality) is consistantly picking and betting on numbers that match the numbers drawn.
