First post is for Powerball - This one is for Mega Millions
Hello fellow Lottery Post members,
I posted the above poll to see if fellow posters can help shed some light on the poll. This information has always bothered me - Is it better to buy single tickets with one line each - or is there any correlation between the timing mechanism in the lottery machine and the number it generates that makes the "randomness" and combination of the numbers any "more likely" if any correlation can be found.
Although we all know it has to do with the numbers picked - there may be a correlation here if enough people can comment on their past experiences.
Also, some state lotteries offer things such as buy 5 quick pick ON THE SAME TICKET and get one free or some sort of promotion. I know that the only reason that is done is to get the person who is willing to purchase one or two quick picks to put in the extra money to get a few more - which will raise the lottery revenue. However, it wouldnt surprise me if the lottery retailer does this becuase they know that 5 lines of Quick Pick on the same ticket RARELY generates winning combinations. Or else why would they limit such and mandate that all be on 1 ticket. If they really wanted to stick to revenue then they wouldnt need to mandate that it should all be on one ticket - but instead all ordered at the same time. I hope everyone understands my point.
Please help out here. Hopefully it will be a successful post that will lead in one direction which may be a correlation.
