Do the pre-tests have any importance on the # you buy?

Not to me.

    I'm working on my MegaMillions picks for tonight right now, I just took a break to check LP to see what's going on.  I still have plenty of time to make my 20 picks and make out 4 play slips before 10:45 PM.  I'm also running some tests on an old procedure I haven't tried for a while and in a couple of hours I will have decided how to set all the parameters in my RNG  for my 20 picks.  Good luck if you're playing MM tonight too.

        Smile To me it's easier to pick your numbers at night, and continue on playing the same # until it hit

          Since I play my set numbers everyday, I have my playslips filled out, along with one or two QPs and make sure I play in time for each game.  However, it would be nice to able to afford to play my set numbers a week or two in advance so that they are locked into the system just in case.
