I just want to know if there is a chart to determine how many times the winning jackpot has been won with OPs vs Selected Numbers;

 Number of QPs per winning ticket -

 Number of Selected Numbers per winning ticket

It seems lately a lot of the large winning jackpot tickets have been QPs.  I'm playing both, QPs and my selected numbers but I'm not having a lot of luck winning with QPs so far; i.e. 2 numbers for a "free replay" on Fantasy 5 and 1 or no numbers at all for the other games..it's getting very tough to winUnhappybut I'm hanging in there because I know the very day I don't play my selected numbers is the very day they will "hit"Wink!!

GOOD LUCK IN WINNING TO EVERYONE @ LP!!Hyper

    QP vs Player's selections is always one of the hot topics here.

    Just as an example, this is from Illinois Little Lotto (Pick 5) so far this year:

    103 Jackpots

    92 QP

    54 PS

    (Includes shared jackpots so it totals to more than the number of jackpots)

    This is from the Powerball website FAQ page:

    WHICH HAS THE BETTER CHANCE OF WINNING: COMPUTER PICKS OR PLAYER PICKS?

    About 70% to 80% of purchases are computer picks. About 70% to 80%of winners are computer picks. Perhaps just one of those weirdcoincidences?

    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.

            I like to pick my own. I don't play unless it has The Diamond's Touch.

              Just something to think about, let's call it a cold, hard fact of lotto, but no matter how much research you've done to come up with "your numbers", the one night in your life that they hit solid (6 of 6 or 5 + 1), they may very well also be someone else's Quick Pick for that drawing!

              That's just yet another way the Lotto Fairy entertains herself!

                For mega millions (the only game I play now other than pick 3), I like to pick my own bonus ball number for all 5 picks (35), but have the machine pick my other numbers on all drawings except one (my lucky numbers, which ironically was the result of a quick pick).  While I have always had better luck with QPs, my biggest win (25 bucks on keno) was a result of picking my own numbers.  I guess it depends on the mood I am in.
