It appears to me the the vast majority of winners (51%?) on any of the lottery games are by quick pick.  Is that true?  If not, then how are the majority of wins, won???  Type

    70% of the players use quick picks and 70% of the time, the winning pick is a quick pick ticket.

    30% of the players pick their own numbers and 30% of the time, those players win.

    got that off of the Powerball website.

      pick3/4 players mostly play their own numbers.

      mega mill and power ball and all other jackpot winners usually buy Qpicks.

        That implies that while system players may enjoy coming up with their own numbers, they're just spinning their wheels when it comes to getting closers to picking winners and lottery systems developers are making their money selling systems and not playing the lotteries.  If that's true then there is no such thing as a "proven system" or "a special set or numbers" to improve your odds of picking a winner, these are just marketing terms used by those selling lottery systems.

        It time system developers step up to the plate and prove that's not true.  Where are the Steve Players, Gail Howards, Ken Silvers and the likes?  I'm waiting.

          I agree with this, especially about the Pick 3/4 comments.  I can tell you from experience, whenever I request Quick Picks for Pick 3 or Pick 4, the lottery clerk looks at me like I have two heads, and sometimes the person doesn't even know how to do it.

            I agree. I just moved a short time ago. And the people where

            i live now. Most of them have no idea how to do my numbers.

            So most of the time i fill out slips for them. And they still cant

            do it right. There putting the slips in to fast. And  there not

            all working. So here i am once again. Standing there trying

            to figure out which slip they missed. If  they had brains they

            would be dangerous.  And then you have them asking me

            how do you play the lottery. And do you win much.

            I can go on and on about this.

            Years ago i met someone who won big. and it was a quick pick.

            And i hear about big winners. and alot are quick picks.

              In an effort to find that "proven system" or "special set of numbers" I wrote a program to assign letters to the numbers in the winning combinations based on their most recent hit in the past thinking that some words would repeat more often then others exposing a common trend.  The trends I've noticed can't be duplicated with an affordable group of numbers.(affordable is 50 lines or less). 

              Even though I would never actually play more than 50 lines I may do some fantasy playing to see what would happen if I could afford to spend more.  Some premium members have post predictions of 50 lines per game and so far I haven't seen any evident that playing more lines improves ones ability to pick more winners.

                Just more proof - people who do the lottery tickets are not lottery clerks, they're clerks in stores that happen to have lotto.

                We should have "lotto stores" with trained people who work for the lottery doing nothing but processing playslips, but we don't. Or short of a lotto store, at least put a person who has went through some kind of training for the lottery on each shift.  

                Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                Lep

                There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                  Then they'd have to charge more for the tickets, right?

                    I totally agree that we should have lotto stores with trained clerks.  Tennessee has a law or regulation preventing that from happening.  Only established stores can sell lotto tickets in this state.  One can not open a store with the intention of only selling lotto tickets.

                    There went my dream of opening "Cafe' de Lotto" .  I would offer coffee, soft drinks, snacks, and a place to sit while scratching off (That sounds nasty!!).  My place would have been a haven for lotto players.
