Could there be a reason people that win jackpots have 1 play on a ticket?

I don't think jackpots are won by people with 1 play on a ticket. Its just how the numbers go. Every lottery machine that generates numbers for quickpicks are different. Most quickpicks are high numbers, some are low and some are both. When I win one day, I'll let u know lol.

    also...it is RAREY if ever a guy that bought 100 tickets. ALWAYS someone that buys just 1 ticket.  I wonder if there is a reason for that as well.

    thats because the number of individual people spending $100 on lottery tickets for one draw (excluding office pools) is so much less compared to the number of people playing $1, $2 or $5 per draw for fun. Thats the reason. The majority of people cant afford to blow $100 in one shot. Only very few do that.

      also it might be a receipt of a winning ticket,which would just print out the winning line of numbers,making one think it's one line ticket a lot.
