Hello, I am new here. I have played MM on and off, but when I read about what the winner did to get the ticket its mostly 1 of 2 things. Obviously QP does work, but when it comes down to it, are you at the right mahchine at that point in time that prints the combination that will be drawn.....

I'd like to think it 'could' happen at some point playing this way, but really is so random its hard to be convinced when buying your ticket this way each time "that particular machine prints the combination for you". I think its fun to try a few and usually you get nothing with regular play. So the other way is the static ticket, less common, but it does happen. I'd like to think this is playing smarter. My gandmother won a match 5 on a Fla lotto once using birthdates of her gandchildern and family members. So I am using birth dates/symbolic numbers as a static line for regular play from a few friends, but I am dubious the way the numbers work out compared to previous draws.

When I look at them I get the feeling there is no statistical chance this combination could appear. Maybe too many low numbers?? To me its not how big of a jackpot I would like but to eventually have the static number combination roll up, but maybe this is not a good combination to use. So just wanted to get advice to see if this theoretically may roll up 'some day'or choose better numbers

 

Thanks for any tip or comments....best of luck to all!

 

Here are my numbers: 6-9-12-24-55-19

                                    7-18-24-38-54-45

    I don't see any reason why they couldn't appear, you'd be surprised at what can happen.  If you look at the ending digits of the second set  07-18-24-38-54 , then' you get 7 4 4 8 8, two doubles and a single.  Guess what set of numbers just won the powerball drawing.     

    14-24-31-43-51 + 27  1 1 3 4 4 for the ending digits so two doubles and a single, plus the beginning digits were 1 2 3 4 5.  The only thing I regret is that I picked to play 2 3 4 for the ending digits, so I came close, but not close enough. 

    Best suggestion is look around and see what systems or ways of playing you like best and try them.  There's lots of really good information, so good luck.  Don't get discouraged.

      I pick both: QP and chosen numbers: 5-11-12-19-26, which is the combination of three birthdays, mine, my husband and older niece; also I'm playing numbers I received from a fortune cookie several years ago which said: MAY YOU GROW RICH; Lucky Numbers: 1-11-13-14-16-21.

      So stick to your system and GOOD LUCK TO YOUHurray!

        Once you decide to buy a quick pick there's no sense in discussing strategy, you have decided to go with what ever the machine prints out and hope for the best.  Almost the same with birthdays except you can switch the numbers between the five core positions and the bonus position.

        I have a strategy for picking numbers but it should have the same disclaimer that most lottery software have "For entertainment only".

          Thanks, Pink and your right. I suppose I should look at it as 'possible' but not impossible to hit at some point, then again I'm fully aware I could play MM the rest of my days and it would never hit. I can only hope it would

           

          Ya Dollar, I'm more like you playing both sides of the spectrum in the event the QP 'could' be the one being printed, so highly unlikely it is. Then again I just started to be committed to regular play, than jumping in like the rest do when its 200+ mil and many times I have thought to myself 'maybe I've missed my chances' being in the 7-11 and not buying the low jackpots tickets'. What really inspired me is the Kansas man who won 2 times and saying the best advice is to "just keep on playing". So thats the way I want to look at it, that persistence 'could' pay off, but I am realistic and never going to expect it. I think the lottery is a nice alternate path you could end up walking and living like the show Entourge, but ultimately the path to prosperity is attained by saving and then make those savings work for you to grow over time into wealth. I think of the lottery as making it easier to get things started, and if I were ever to win the big one I'll be dammed if I turn into Jack Whittaker cause I would put 75% in GOLD bullion, resources and preserve it

           

          Thanks for the vote of confidence and GOOD LUCK to both of you this tues!

           

          So my 2 sets and 8 QP's maybe for the win....if not, there's always a chance each time no matter the size of jackpotWink

            "Maybe too many low numbers??"

            Every combination has exactly the same chance of being drawn, regardless of what numbers are inthe combination. The more numbers you have to use, the more possible combinations there are, but there's only going to be one winning combination drawn. Matching the winning combination requires exactly 5 regular numbers and 1 mega number.  Having a combination that has the same pattern as the winning combination only wins you a chance to try again next time.

              Here are my numbers: 6-9-12-24-55-19

                                                  7-18-24-38-54-45

              I would compare my numbers to the profile of winning jackpot numbers.
              For instance, out of the 53 jackpot winning numbers since 6/24/2005,
              35 out of the 53 draws had two numbers with the same last digit in the
              white ball set.  This occurs approximately 66% of the time.  If you add in
              the megaball, it increases a little bit more.  To illustrate, the following
              chart shows the winning jackpot numbers with last digits highlighted in
              the color blue.  Megaball is added with the color red.  This is just one example.

              Good Luck!
