I've read more than once that the largest percentage of lottery ticket buyers are lower middle class and down from there. Thus, these are the types of neighborhods/areas you find these types of folks.

Makes sense.  I see poor, hard working people in my area (many times minority) spend (what looks to be) half there pay checks to have a chance to escape theyre horrible blue collar existences.

    Depending on a lottery's software you may be able to select part of the numbers then check QP and let the computer pick the rest. 

    In Georgia you can do it on all games other than Cash 3 and Cash 4 mid and eve.  Unsure about Keno.

    Good luck to everyone!

      Powerball has the partial QP/self pick option but i hate that MEGA Millions in Jersey doesn't have it..it is bad..

        I only by qpicks for jackpot games not pick 3/4

        I Agree!   I throw in a QP for jackpot games as toooo many people win that way. 

        Money won is twice as good as money earned!

          I play both QPs and OPs: the way I see it is that if those 6 balls that roll for that drawing happens to match all 6 of the numbers on one line of my jackpot game ticket, I am a winner regardless of the method used to determine those numbers on my ticket.  All I need now is LUCK to strike me!

          The guy who won the presidency in 2008 really won the lottery...he is now millions richer, travels in first class style, and even has a staff that would be the envy of the richest Powerball winner (she has a staff of 2). Every night he goes to sleep, he probably plays the close of Dave Chappelle's Show: I'm rich beyatch!

                This is perhaps the sad thing about those who are lucky enough to win a jackpot lottery...they play with the dream as you say it to escape their current paycheck to paycheck existence, live high on the hog for awhile, don't establish a plan and end up right back where they started.  Now I know not everyone who wins has that experience and I know that it is not just the poor and working class poor that squander their winnings (damn, I hate saying the name but we all know a one Mr. Jack Whitacker).  But the anyone who has a gambling problem, a drug problem, or a problem with putting a plan in place and sticking to it will eventually end up squandering any amount of jackpot winnings. 

                But I like my chances for winning with QPs...but I will admit that I bought a 5 spot ticket for tonight's Mega Million $110 million (cash value) drawing that only had 1 QP.  I figure that QP got some good vibes from my other 4 own picks, so hopefully I will win.  And when I win, I will....live according to my pre-established plan...nope I will not be profiled in any future edition of "Curse of the Lottery.

                  Q.picks for me have gone both ways..i lost with them some and won with them when i thought they were total crap..its just luck at the end....

                  I dont know exactly what it will feel to have MIllions $$$...NObody here i guess really knows what their live can turn to if they won millions...I don't cause i never had anything close to that....my max bank account had ~$6000 at one time no more than that ...so WE CAN SAY stuff like we'll be responsible and not blow it and all that but its not SURE...there are many things in this world that can be very tempting if you have the BIG money...SO I GUESS the %s are that things will go wrong and one will blow it within few years due to inexperience and wanting to try many things they never had at once...only a select few can really manage it ...i guess you have to have a strong social circle(wife, friends, parents) that won't let you make stupid decisions....or it could go the opposite because of them ...so in the end its not SURE again

                    I voted "sometimes" only because I won like 2+ dollars in the past. But from some time I just don't buy QPs anymore.

                    I would rather write my own program to generate "ideal quick picks" (even low/high/odd/even distribution, etc) than buy a QP.

                    I try quick picks sometimes.     zagon.
