    That's what I use for my $1 Powerball ticket twice a week.

    Hey...it's just as good as any combination in a game with such ridiculous odds.

    you hear so much these days about people winning with fortune cookie numbers that its seems like you'd have just as much of a chance winning with them as you would a quick pick.......

    Uff Da has it right. The numbers from a fortune cookie have just as much chance as a quickpick, but that's not the same thing as being just as good. When fortune cookie numbers hit 5+0 in PB a year ago there were 110 winners who mostly got 100 grand. The jackpot was about 25 million, so if they'd hit 5+1 they would have shared about 13 million in cash, for 118 grand each. That's a modest improvement for some, and a drastic decrease for the people with powerplay. If the jackpot had been a bit smaller everyone would have ended up with less for a  jackpot win than for 2nd place. You can't predict what numbers will win, so the best you can do is have numbers that aren't likely to be played by 10 to 100 other people and hope you get lucky.

      Platinum Plus, huh?  Been there; done that.  They can't pick numbers any better than I can.
