Mistake tickets include those in NY and Texas for annual payments. I've seen NY online tickets with "foreign" symbols, like playing cards.

    It's not the wrong book.  It's THE book on why quickpicks are NOT the way to go.  Not that SOME don't win on qps, it's just that many buy qps and lose when they are better off with number selection strategies. 

    Greg...........................

    Tell us more...............on how to be better-off with number selection???

    strateges and why you won't slip in a QP now or thennnnnnnnnnnn???

    Starting, 01/01/2006, I plan to use "BOFUM".......QP & # selection, even

    if I HIT the BIG Winnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn  on 12/25/2005!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      I never thought about buying left over tickets.  Tomorrow, I'll stop off at a couple of my favorite stores, and see if they have some "mistakes" and buy them.   I'm getting desperate.  Pretty soon I'll be scratching the ground with chicken feet and sticking pins in dolls.

      Cheers

        I went to a c-store today and asked the clerk for five cash five tickets with power-up. She gave me five powerball tickets with powerplay.

        I was outside before I glanced at my ticket and noticed the mistake, and went back in to see if she could swap me for cash five tickets because I already had powerball tickets for tonights drawing.

        I got inside and a little voice in my head said "KEEP THESE NUMBERS."

        So I laid out anouther ten bucks for my cash five tickets and left.

        Who knows! The little voice in my head has been wrong before, but I couldn't take that chance.

        With the lottery I get all the exercise I need.

                          In futility.

          Dollar for dollar, I have probably won more on the mistake numbers in the pick-3. My agent keeps and plays mistake pick-3 tickets and wins just as often as the rest of us.

          Usually I keep mistake tickets.

          Posted 4/6:  IL Pick 3 midday and evening until they hit:  555, 347 (str8).

            So when you win the Powerball you're going to split it with me, right?

              Since the jackpot is "only" 31 million I don't think I will have enough to share. According to the jackpot analisis on the usamega web site I would "only" end up with 10 million after taxes and taking the cash option.

               

              No Pity!

                    People actually buy a book on how to play Quick Picks? OK! I'm starting one tonight, How to lose at the lottery. Should sell a million copies the first day.

                    How can anyone write an entire book on quickpicks?  It would be one page long and say....

                     

                    Buy quick picks

                    Then it would sell for twenty bucks and the author would take the money from the sales and buy some system ! Green laugh

                      Keeping the title short helps.  All those words the writer didn't use up in the title are fair game for text inside the book.

                      Large print helps.  Lots of diagrams and pictures of QP tickets and balls with numbers on them.

                      Convenience store ettiquite might make for a chapter.

                      Anecdotes about all the fine people the author met standing in line to buy quick picks, all the garbage cans he's dug in for mistakes and what other stuff he found while he was digging might make a chapter.

                      A guy could digress a lot.  Put in a few pictures of his wife and kids.  Talk some about what he thinks about politics and Ford automobiles.

                      I think a properly done book on Quick Picks might well reach out there into the 150 page range, provided a writer had access to 145 pictures and was willing to throw in a couple of blank pages.

                          Those rejected by players for some reason. Being it is the wrong number, game, number of plays etc...

                              oh ok.  I could consider those Cash Value Option tickets as mistakes.  But like I said, I took them anyway because that could be the big one or at least a winner.  But I'd moan and complain to the lottery officials if they wouldn't give me my annual payments.
