If you played one(1) powerball quick pick for 6 months, how many times have you matched 3 white balls.

 I know what the odds are. I want to hear from people who buy a quick pick at the terminal every drawing.

    (6 months, roughly 55 draws)

    They don't have PB in Texas, but if I were to venture a guess,
    I would say less than 5, if that many.
    Probably closer to 0 or 1.

     

    Good Luck!

      I was thinking it is 0 or 1.

      I want to know from people who actually just buy 1 quick pick per drawing.

        i usually buy at least 50 tickets (all QP) every drawing for Powerball.

        i usually get at least the powerball right on two tickets ($6) and sometimes if im lucky, i get one 3+PB or 2+PB.

        the average return for every $50 spent tends to be around $6... so i lose about $44 every draw.

         

        I play a lot and I never won anything above 3+PB.

         

        so i think you are asking the wrong question...

        you just have to be seriously lucky to even match anything if you are playing just one QP ticket.

          That is what I want to find out. I buy a lot of tickets too. I want to know if I bought I ticket multiple times if it would pay off.

          I hear a some people say the only buy one ticket. They are the ones I want to hear from.

            I buy one QP ticket per drawing because my theory is it only takes one ticket to win...and always play the Power Play $2.00.  The last 4 draws I have won a total of $463.  Buying more than one ticket does not increase your odds of winning by that much.  Odds are very high.  QP are best in my opinion.

              You said the last 4 draws you won $463?

              In 4 draws can you break that up and show me how.

              I am also interested in how you have done buying single ticket per draw for the past 6 months since the newest PB matrix change.
