Would this be considered a 'double quick pick' of sorts...

Let's say you're playing your states lotto jackpot game, a pick 6.

You come here to LP and go to Puick Picks, and get one set of numbers. Most states offer two lines of numbers for a dollar play. So you play the set of numbers from here - it's a qP here, but you mark in the numbers - then you play the other line on your playslip as a QP.

Let's say the number from here hit. Would you consider the ticket a 'double quick pick'?

Also, bear in mind that when the lottery announces the results they will notconsider it a QP.

- Just for the sake of discussion, what way ye?

And wouldn't you love to see a lotery winner on TV saying, "Well, I marked the numbers but actually I didn't select them....they were a QP, but a QP from this site called LP, not from the lottery terminal...."

      You can view it either way. Personally I consider it a
      QP only if it comes from a terminal. Because you have
      no control over it all. Some people may pick a lot of
      QP's from a RNG until they see one they like, which to
      me is an element of control. So it is the same as
      playing your own numbers. The lottery will see that
      way as well. Even if it is still a QP, but just from
      another source.

      One strategy I like is to use past QP's as future
      plays, which then become personal numbers, nonetheless
      were still QP's. Confusing eh?

          A QP cannot come from anywhere BUT an actual terminal.

           

          A 'QP' from here is not a 'QP', it's an RNG from a third party non-affiliated vendor.

              You are correct Sir!!

               

              You can generate some combinations to play but they are in fact generated numbers from another device not associated with the lottery.

                It doesn't matter WHICH random number generator you get your lottery numbers from, the basic function of ALL random number generators is the same....to give out "quick picks".

                  Any transaction in which you have to TELL the attendant what numbers you want OR you fill out actual numbers on a card isn't a 'Quick Pick'.

                   

                  A 'Quick Pick' is where you tell the attendant you want a 'Quick Pick' and he pushes one button and you get one, OR you

                  take a card and check the box 'QP'. 

                  If you win the lottery, and you do it with a third party RNG, you still have to fill out a card, therefore, in the eyes of the Lottery Officials, you did NOT play a Quick-Pick.  Irregardless of what the link tells you.

                     OK folks, just for the sake of conversation:

                    So Clancy, member of LP, hits the _ _ _ _ _ lottery. His friend from the pub, O' Rourke, says, "Clancy me lad, where'd ya get the numbers?"

                    Clancy says from a website.

                    O'Rourke says, "Now could ya be tellin me what site it is?"

                    Clancy says, "Begosh and begorrah O'Rourke, 'tis LP"

                    O'Rourke says, "And where on LP do you get these numbers?"

                    Clancy says, "On the left of the page you'll be finding Lottery Post Links. Look down aways for Quick Picks and click on it."

                    Wink

                      You are getting too technical here.  The answer is simple.  To the lottery a QP is a number generated by the lottery terminal at the retailer.  You can call a number anything you want, but it isn't officially a QP.  I was trying to think of a good analogy, but nothing is coming up in my head. No matter how it is chosen, if you need to write it on a card and it doesn't come from the retailer, it is not a QP.  Okay, since nothing is clicking I will use this:  Somebody introduces you to a woman. You play with her. You live with her for 5 years. You call her your wife. You do everything a married couple does like the people next door. You die and the Government does not look at her as your legal spouse for soc sec and other purposes.  No matter how you acquired, look at or feel about something or someone, it is what it is according to the official and/or legal description.

                          I'm just making conversation on a slow weekend here, so.... 

                          I guess we coud say that as far as the lottery goes (the people runing any specific lottery) it's only a quick pick if the ticket says QP, but as far as the players are concenred, any numbers chosen by any type of RNG is a QP.
