I usually check the IL website winners page to see how many people won and where the tickets were sold. They also note how many subscription winners there were.
For those not familiar with subscription playing, you can send the lottery a check for 3, 6, or 12 months play on your picks. Smaller prizes are accumulated during that period and you receive a check at the end of it. 4 of 5 and jackpots are paid right away.
I have never seen a subscription winner win the jackpot. Last night one did for $290,000. Guess what? It was a quick pick! I find it unusual that someone would purchase tickets for that length of time and get quick picks, don't you? What if they were lousy quick picks? You're stuck with them.
If you play quick picks maybe it's a good idea to play the same ones for awhile???
