Let's have some fun.

I'm putting this in discussion because it's not game-specific, it's for all number games.

Let's say you get your numbers from a RNG other than the lottery outlet. Maybe you click on Quick Picks here on LP, maybe you have a RNG, maybe you get your numbers from a Lucky Number Weight & Fortune scale in a mall.

Is that a quick pick or not?

Since we don't do multiple answers, pick what you think is the best answer.

Have fun.

    Had to think about this for a minute. I think if you fill out playslips they are not really QP's. If you get your numbers from a RNG like on LP, you still can accept or reject what comes up. When you get a QP when buying your tics, you are stuck with them.

    I almost voted "what would Pumpi say". LOL.

      I Agree! In my opinion, if you fill out your numbers on a playslip, no matter where you got your numbers from, then, it isn't a quick pick. Yeah, you may have gotten some quick pick numbers from another source, but I don't see it as being a true quick pick. Plus, it won't say "quick pick" on your tickets.

        Thanks for replying.

        i know this is strictly an opinion thing, and on any lottery's results listings if it hit it wouldn't be listed as a qP as it was not a QP issued by the lottery, but I can see someone saying something like this;

        "Well it was a quick pick, I just didn't let the lotto machine pick the numbers, I got them from _ _ _ _ _".

            What is a Quick Pick: It's Combination Generated by a Random Number Generator whose Output You have No Control Over.

                I always fill out a play slip with numbers picked randomly within parameters I set using an RNG program that I wrote.  They are randomly picked but I decide which ones to play so they're not QPs.

                  I chose *What's Pumpi Think* mainly because dadgum it, I like Pumpi. If there's ever a chance to get his perspective on anything, I wanna hear it. His response will invariably contain references to things like midgets or sex slaves and that always makes the dialogue more interesting. I'm half nuts myself and birds of a feather, well you know...

                  I'd be proud to take Pumpi out honky tonkin' in these East Tennessee hills and do some hootin' and hollerin' and maybe get in a good old fashioned East Tennessee bar room brawl. I don't know if it's legal to bring his sex slaves with him though. I'll have to check with Immigration or something.

                  Aside from that, I consider all numbers from various sources with the same veracity as Quick Picks. Not "My Numbers" though! Those are "My Numbers" that I play all the time on all jackpot games along with a line of QP's usually from the lottery terminal.

                    In Florida an official Quick Pick is one selected by the lottery terminal and there is a (QP) printed next to the combinations so you can't later claim to have picked it by any other magical mystical method.

                    The Florida Lottery allows players to select between one and all but one of the numbers and Quick Pick the remainder.   I don't do this, so I can't say what they tag those combinations as.

                    An unofficial quick pick would be a random selection by any other means. 

                    I would like to see a weighted randomizer that gives slightly greater weight to numbers drawn more often.   Why?  Why not?

                      I think Coin Toss has WAY too much time on his hands lately! LOL

                      Although this isn't how I would choose my numbers  I don't consider this a QP because like someone else mentioned you can always change the numbers. At least that's a good thing!

                        It sounds like you're saying if I check the "quick pick" box on the play slips "it isn't a "quick pick". If it's not a "quick pick" what is it?

                          I am saying, if you fill out numbers in the playslip, it isn't a quick pick. If you choose quick pick on the playslip, it's obviously a quick pick.

                            If you ask for a QP, or fill out a slip and check QP, as ThatScaryChick said, it's a quick pick.

                            Either way, that ticket will be marked QP, In Illinois, it's right after the numbers, such as 12 23 24 30 35 52 QP.

                            But what if we ever have a jackpot winner who gets interviewed and refers to a RNG other than the lottery terminal? With all the gadgets out there it's not that unlikely.

                            So what if the winner says, "Well, it was a quick pick, just not from the lottery."

                            Now, is that a QP or not? Granted, the player played the numbers, but they weren't "their" numbers!

                            What?

                            Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                              Well now that depends if he took the first numbers the RNG gave him or waited til it gave him numbers he liked.

                              If he waited til it gave him numbers he liked then he picked them; they were his numbers.
