The Anti-Quick Pick System

I've been studying Quick Picks and have come up with something using Quick Picks and your current analysis methods of selection. Depending on your lottery, you can use Quick Pick Numbers to eliminate numbers from your analysis numbers. Below is a sample Quick Pick I bought for this last 01-31 drawing of WI Megabucks (6/49). Notice lines G, H, and I of the Quick Picks have no numbers for that days drawing. The numbers drawn were 12, 21, 32, 38 ,39 and 44. Also, notice there are only a few lines with just 1 or 2 numbers drawn.

 A 25 26 30 31 32 33 QP B 5 13 26 31 37 40 QP C 10 12 15 25 39 41 QP D 2 11 16 23 43 44 QP E 19 20 30 36 37 40 QP F 2 21 26 27 28 41 QP G 2 27 30 33 34 46 QP H 3 8 14 30 37 42 QP I 6 15 25 29 36 48 QP J 1 4 8 15 17 21 QP

Using the lines G, H and I as an example, the total quantity of numbers is 18. If those 18 numbers are eliminated from the total of 49 numbers for this lottery, the probability of success goes from 6 of 49 (1 in 13,983,816) to 6 of 31 (1 in 736,281). You'd have to decide on how many lines to buy as a Quick Pick and then decide on how many lines to use from the Quick Pick set to use. Typically 1 to 3 lines chosen at random would be enough for this set of numbers, you'll have to review your individual lottery's Quick Pick numbers to meet your needs.

JADE,so are you saying that you would eliminate the lines that had none of your drawing numbers in them?  Could you elaborate a little more? Thanks! Great post! I've often bought QP's,tooled around with them and bought some more tickets because as you show,there are always a few of them in there (usually) and sometimes they are very close.

Correction, there are 17 numbers in the Lines G, H and I. Missed the extra 30. Still 6 of 32 is (1 in 906,192), far less than (1 in 13,983,816).

Table of Numbers to Eliminate from the analysis numbers for the previous example

 Numbers in lines G, H and I 2 3 6 8 14 15 25 27 29 30 33 34 36 37 42 46 48

You know, that's an interesting way of looking at it.  Food for thought.........Thanks

I suggest NOT using quick picks as part of a system. I've tried it.

hey guru,

can you elaborate on your method that didn't work? I think it's an interesting idea.

Just so happens, I have another set of Quick Picks for the same date, 2007-01-31. Let's see how these numbers fair.

 A 14 21 23 33 40 48 QP B 5 13 14 22 36 37 QP C 1 3 19 22 28 36 QP D 2 11 26 41 46 47 QP E 8 12 20 26 35 47 QP F 9 10 11 19 36 49 QP G 1 5 12 13 23 40 QP H 3 15 28 40 42 44 QP I 4 13 17 30 46 47 QP J 8 10 14 17 45 47 QP

Huh, lines B, C, D, F, I and J have 0 numbers from the drawing. Lines A, E, G, and H only have 1 number from the drawing. If I randomly select 2 of the lines from the list of combos, I'd have a 1 in 3 probability of selecting the combos that do not have any of the draw numbers for that drawing. As an example, If lines C and I were randomly selected, there would be 12 numbers that could be eliminated from the 49 numbers that are analyzed. Leaving just 37 to work with; the probability drops to (1 in 2,324,784). Lines C and I have numbers in common or is the union of {1, 3, 19, 22, 28, 36} and {4, 13, 17, 30, 46, 47} and is this set of numbers {1, 3, 4, 13, 17, 19, 22, 28, 30, 36, 46, 47}. Use the union of the two lines to create a set of numbers that would excluded from the final analysis.

Also, our WI Megabucks has a promo going on where if you buy \$5.00 or 10 plays you get an extra free \$1.00 or 2 play Quick Pick. Here are those combos:

 A 5 25 26 30 38 41 QP B 9 15 21 24 25 43 QP A 2 5 8 23 27 39 QP B 14 27 30 37 40 44 QP

Using a system to select lottery numbers both increases AND decreases your odds. Your goal of using a system is to design it in a way that it increases your odds more than it decreases it. For example, one of the functions in my PowerBall program discards any sets that have 3 consecutive numbers. This will increase my odds, BUT it will also slightly decrease my odds because sets that have 3 consecutive numbers ARE possible. The last time this happened on the PowerBall was on December 2, 2006. Even though THOSE results are possible, I can still say that elimination of sets with 3 consecutive numbers is still a good method because 99.9% of the time that's exactly what happens. See, 99.9% accuracy is good, therefore the function is good. The thing is, just the fact that it is "only" 99.9% accurate means that you shouldn't rule out quick picks all together. Quick picks don't use systems. Quick picks are ALL valid.

Jade, you and I are chasing the same games since we're both in Wisconsin.  So I tried your method with Supercash ( 6 of 39)...but instead of buying a \$5 QP, I just had the LP RNG generate ten lines. (I figure we go to the store and ask for a QP and the terminal generates ten lines using an RNG anyway)

Since we're dealing with fewer numbers, it figures that the QP would cover more numbers, which it did.  It eliminated 9 of the 39 (the ten lines contained 30 different numbers) and only one of the nine was among the six drawn last night. Even randomizing the 30 numbers would allow you to use all 30 in only six lines (cost 3 bucks) ...though you could of course add another four lines for a 5 buck ticket. The chance of catching 5 of 6 (which I wouldn't mind, believe me) is alot better than having to deal with trying to catch it while covering all 39 numbers (or even 36 of them)

This is something worth playing with......not exactly what you did with Megabucks, but another way of looking at this perhaps.

There are two ways of picking numbers, trying to determine what they Are and trying to determine what they Are Not. This is a simple and Fun way of determining what they are not and the more numbers there are in my Quick Picks, I also win. So, win-win all around. Good luck with your way too.

also, you don't have to get \$5.00 worth...  just get \$1.00 worth and try. no need to break the bank on this.

This method you describe got me interested because of the game I play, it's NY Pick 10,
Keno 10/20/80...because I have to eliminate 60-70 numbers each drawing it seemed like a fun short-cut, Pick 10 is so baffling because of the repeats and flag formations, it makes you think picking the right numbers is easy-about 60-75% of all the drawn numbers come from the last 3 drawings...needless to say it is NOT a cakewalk, but challenging and fun anyway. Would I be better off buying like 6 QP's for a drawing since I have so many numbers to eliminate do you think?

Yeah, the bank is pretty meager.
