If purchasing $2.00 in quickpicks, are odds better purchasing them together or separately?

I don't think it matters [ 20 ]  [57.14%]
I don't buy quick picks [ 5 ]  [14.29%]
Total Valid Votes [ 35 ]  
Discarded Votes [ 2 ]

Day late qp's usually contains enough numbers to make a winner..

I have taken others tickets that I was asked to discard because they were not winners.. and ran them for the next draw .. and collected..

I always ask if they want to keep the same numbers.. and always I hear "no".

 

Another thing I do ..  If a person has several winners on several tickets.. I keep those and make combos with them. Seems that the numbers repeat and I will luck up with a winner.. Not a lot of money.. but a closer chance than with qp..

    Thanks for the "day late" QP tip. I'll have to try that.

              The odds of matching a number using pure Quick Picks are the same whether 2 in a row or in 2 different stores.. because you are having the Store's RNG pick mathematical digits vs. a physical machine (usually anyway).. you should only use QP if you want to play Computerized drawings (that also use RNG) but most of you sound like you avoid such drawings (and I can understand that).. basically if you use RNG you are "computerizing" your picks! The reason that a lot of jackpots are won via QP are because the majority of tickets are bought as QP and in big jackpots a lot of people who normally don't play will do so and will go for QP being they are often not even sure the rules of the game (sorry, sir, you don't get to pick 5 bonus balls!) let alone what to play. If you pick your own numbers and you win with them, people will be beating down your door wanting to buy your system!

                My vote is picking it together because I usually say it to the retailer.
