Have you had more success manually picking your numbers

or using Quick Pick or other random number generators?

 

I don't seem to do any good picking my own numbers, but the

Quick picks get more.

    I play my own numbers and QP's on long term multi-draws and have noticed my own numbers come in more frequently. Unfortunately, they come in as soon as I stop playing them or forget to renew them. I gotta stop that!

      I don't use QP's. I prefer to have some control over it but, that's just my preference. ;)

        When the jackpot is under 200K I play my number, when it is over 200K I play another line for each 200K.

        I play my numbers and a QP.

         

        I figure that QP can come up with the strange numbers required to match the winning numbers.

        My numbers tend to be more rational or balanced.

          Most of the time I choose my own numbers, but every now and then, I will do quick picks. It just depends on how I feel.

              I've had way more success picking my own numbers though once in a blue moon I win with a qp but I seldom buy them.

                I use QP.

                I've won $5000 from FL LOtto and $10,000 from Powerball through QP.

                 

                However... I must tell you the disgusting fact about all this...

                Even though I have won more than $15,000 from playing the jackpot lottos, I spend about $100/week on them.  Usually every Saturday morning, after a stop at starbucks in the morning with my wife, we stop by a local supermarket (saturday routine) and while my wife shops for groceries, I walk up to the customer serivce desk and buy 100 QP for whichever jackpot is higher or worth it (FL Lotto or Powerball).

                Ive been doing this for about 2yrs...

                 

                So obviously, im still underwater in terms of net profit.

                 

                But im telling you this to let you know that QP can win and... -did i mention - more convinient? haha.

                 

                btw, i heard 80% of all jackpot winners have picked their ticket using QP.

                  I asked because yesterday the GA F5 jackpot was at $481K.

                   

                  I played two lines of my own numbers and one QP.

                   

                  My numbers missed but the QP gave me a free ticket.

                  A free ticket is or can be as good as a win... tomorrow.

                    When you're buying that many lines every week, using a system to pick your numbers and making out play slips could take up a lot of time.

                    I prefer to pick my own numbers with a RNG that  check them with previous winners and making out play slips each time I play.  Since I only play 10-25 lines, it doesn't take a lot of time.

                      bomatt,

                      This is one of the most frequent topics that comes up on LP.

                      FWIW, I track the Illinois Little Lotto drawing by drawing, since it's played 7 days a week.

                      These are the results thus far for 2009:

                      To date:

                      120 Jackpots

                      104 QP

                      67 PS

                      (PS= players' selection).

                      86.6 percent of the jackpots have went to QPs.

                      55.8% to player's selections.

                      (This includes shared jackpots so the combined number of QP and PS is more than the number of jackpots paid.

                      http://www.lotterypost.com/thread/186805/10

                      That's for one particular states' Pick 5 game (last year's results were pretty similar).

                      Both the MM and PB websites say that 70 to 80% of winners are QPs and 70 to 80% of ticket sales are QPs.

                      I know people "fall in love" with particular sets of numbers (I have a few favorites I play, too), but facts are facts.

                      Then again, on any internet discussion board ther are always Maven University alumni-  good ole Maven U., whose motto is

                        I'm much too lazy to do manual.

                        I've been lucky enough  to beat the odds using QPs.

                        But it's all luck...

                            Are you talking Pick 3 / 4 or Jackpots games?

                            (Going by your sig).

                            Maybe threads like this, or posts, should be game-specific.

                            I don't think too many people at all QP Pick3 / 4.

                              i was referring to the jackpot games. i apologize if my post was not pertinent to the topic of the thread.

                               

                              btw, RJOH, you are right. to play 100 tickets using a slip, choosing numbers, and etc would take way too long.
