Todd

>truecritic, I have no idea what your beef is with running 2 comparisons at the same time.  My Pick 4 random numbers are beating Don's numbers right now -- is that what you're upset about?

Not upset in the slightest, just wondered if both tests were being run.  You didn't bother to set up a special thread for the Pick4.  Don't overlook my "disclaimer" - I don't advocate buying any system.  I am on your side until or IF proven otherwise.

>Also, a comparison of numbers like this is the most accurate way to compare numbers, apples to apples...

Todd, we are in complete agreement that numbers are numbers.  The only thing making D'Arlenes any better is when and where they say to play them.  Anyone can play random numbers - you are not proving anything.  The only thing making one set of random better than another set is giving directions how to use them.

Todd...

Look at it this way...suppose I went and generated my own set of 30 quick picks from the Lottery Post generator you used. And my set out performs yours and D'Arlene's. What would that prove?

It would prove that quick picks are a viable way to pick your numbers.

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

I really don't today is the day we should be debating this.

We should all just be thankful that we are alive.

And also proves that buying a set of numbers is of the same value as generating Quick Picks (which are free).

Therefore, if you have a choice between spending \$50 on buying a set of numbers from someone, or \$50 for buying more tickets, it makes more sense to spend the \$50 on tickets.  After all, the return on your "investment" pays back the same either way, so it is wiser to "invest" more, rather than burn it on numbers that will pay off the same.

Note, I am strictly talking about buying numbers to play from someone, not buying a system.

Sandy,

If I wake up in the morning I'm happy that I lived through the night....
That is, on the weekends and holidays. Working days are another story....lol

Ya'll gonna have to prove that statement to me.

My mind is open to it. Make your explanations simple when the time comes.

Remember I have "take it to the bank mentality."  The type of thinking that says, I know that I know the hit because I've seen it happen over and over.

My argument is that no system is viable unless it's been proving over and over and never changes and you can take it to the bank.  Otherwise you're just spitting in the wind.

My explanation is very simple. Quick picks win lotteries all the time.
No need to prove anything. It's a fact.

If your method is better, let's see it in action.

So far Arlene's numbers have hit two box hits vs. my big zilch, so like I said, all the naysayers should relax.  If Arlene's numbers are better than my Quick Picks, then so be it.  I have a feeling it will go back and forth, but who knows?  Maybe I'm wrong!

This thread ain't about my method.  It about Arlene and Todd's challenge and the blanet statement that "It would prove that quick picks are a viable way to pick your numbers."  Don't be trying to make it into something else.

Prove to me that choosing quick picks can generate hits everyday and several times a day with a know that I know confidence.

I was just saying prove it, my mind is open and keep it simple.

I'll bring this forward from discussion in another thread .....

konane "Quick Picks win more often because more players choose them .......".

"However, people who choose their own numbers have a higher percentage of wins because of having done research, comparisons, filtering which then gives them the best choices to play.  They maximize impact of discretionary lottery dollars spent."

Second paragraph adds validity to tenaj's post because she and others work the heck out of numbers before filtering and narrowing down the few they play.  Anyone who does that earns every \$\$\$ they win because it is work!!

However this thread is about someone selling access to numbers based upon a particular system vs. quick picks.

Good luck to everyone!

all of the results are not in but it looks like Arlene is ahead 2 to 0. looked at NY, Penn and Maryland.

If you know your number is going to hit, have patience and then KILL IT!

You never know when you will get another hit.
