I play Powerball and Hoosier Lotto every week. I use to pick my numbers but had relatively little success. I'm wondering if Powerball publishes whether the winning tickets are quick picks or self picked numbers?

    Actually, you probably don't know this but this type of question has been here a few times and the answer is that they are pretty much even out.

    70% of winning tickets are QP and 70% of winning tickets are SPN

      I hadn't seen that actual question yet in my short time reading these forums. Thanks though.

      I get frustrated at times when I go in and get 3 QP's and they all have 2 or 3 of the same numbers.

        70% of winners are QP but 70% of people that play use QP instead of picking their own numbers.  Nobody knows if this is just a coincidence.

          Where's you get that? This is from rhe Powerball website FAQ page:

          WHICH HAS THE BETTER CHANCE OF WINNING: COMPUTER PICKS OR PLAYER PICKS?

          About 70% to 80% of purchases are computer picks. About 70% to 80%of winners are computer picks. Perhaps just one of those weirdcoincidences?

          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.

            Of people buying them 70% QP wins and 70% SPN of wins.

            That is why I said they EVEN out.

             

            P.S. Coin Toss, were you in a rush when you typed that message, because usually you are particuarly articulate.

              Honestly, I think 90% of purchases are quick picks.

                You're kidding me right, millions of people buy both QP and SPN, if statistics say anything they would show that those millions of purchases would even out on both sides.

                  Sorry i didnt see this new message of yours, but I also hate it when i get multiple numbers, but look on the bright side though if those numbers win that means that you receive more money.

                    I don't care what the Powerball website says. That's what I think.

                        Ok, then you can say 70% and I can say 90%.

                              Have you tried asking for separate Tickets?
