I'm a firm believer in doing what baseball managers do, "go with the percentages", and in lotto the percentages are QPs.
Thus far, personally though, my biggest lotto win was 5 of 6 in the California lottery, and those numbers came from a horoscope.
My second biggest was on Powerball in Indiana, 4 of 5 and no PB, and those numbers came off of a website (not LP, this was before I knew about LP).
So that's a case where not oncde, but twice, they weren't quick picks, but they still weren't numbers that I picked myself. "Non-lotto QP QPs"?
As Justxploring said, it's luck...say someone wins by playing birthdays or family members ages, it's still luck that they all hit together.
Maybe there's a mystical type belief thing that goes with it, whether you select the numbers or play a QP, maybe, just maybe, if you believe that's what will win, it just might.
Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.
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.
