I hear the numbers from LOST are the second most played combination in the UK 6/49, that must have something to do with why jackpots take so long to be hit sometimes. The rollover creates more LOST number players, not just more unique combinations played. I wonder if every combination is ever played, I doubt it. Of course the lottery could always make a Quick Pick program that chews through every combination before giving out the same combination twice, just isn't good for business. BobP

I always heard it was around 40 percent, and then suddenly, recently, I started to see higher percentages. I was scratching my head why this was happening. Guess what?....thanx to this post, it is explained.
The raw estimate is higher, but because most of the plays are QPs. Once the factor of the remaining percentage, people who chose their own numbers, takes effect, then it becomes the 40 percent that I always heard about. It all makes sense now......
Now that's what I call a subtle revelation......LOL

I check the press releases most nights and the majority of Fantasy5, MegaMoney and Lotto winners bought are QPs. That's not to say they're any more likely to be drawn, only that there are many more sold. Even people who always play their own numbers (like yours truly) might spontaneously say "give me a couple of quickpicks too" if they have an extra few bucks.
Interesting survey on the FL website. It reads:
Think about the store where you usually buy lottery tickets. How often does the sales clerk ask you if you would like to buy a lottery ticket before you even ask for one?

what i want to same 6 numbers are printed twice on the same ticket!
i mean if its truly random the has to be a chance of this happening, about 1 in 13 mill for 2 line qp, even less if you go for 12 lines or such. but ive never heard of it.
so the call goes out for a qp that has same 6 numbers on it twice.

QPs do work, even at a smaller prize. Got 062 as a QP pick 3 in Tenn. Won $500, spent 50 not a bad investment I would say.

In the last 2 months my group has run close to 28000 lines
out of those 28000 lines approx 18000 were quick picks or free plays
we won more on the numbers we chose.
we came close on one quick pick but came close 3 times on the numbers we chose.
Free plays in my mind our garbage would rather have a dollar.
but if i win big on a quick pick i will change my mind lol.
I will be posting further discussion on the meda draw post i have started later tonight with my findings on doing what our group did in order to help other groups.

From my personal experience, I can safely say they work.

So far, I've had better luck with choosing my own numbers. I haven't won big, but I still have won more then when I play quick picks.
