    It's supposed to be just totally random numbers from the computer, CRAZY AL.

      I should have mentioned that there are some who will dispute that claim.

          Everybody gets the close ones AL, whether they're QP's or their own picks.

          Unfortunately close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades.

          But that's the way it's set up - it's designed so you don't win.

          Miracles do happen though.

            I rarely win anything on QP's. I am lucky if I win $1 on a $10 QP. I can win small amounts often, when I pick my own. I know it's *supposed* to be random...but I often see on my ticket, for example:

            8 17 20 29 30-26  

            8 18 21 30 39-27  and so on all the way down my ticket

            repeats, sequential...definitely not completely random looking. Confused

                QPs are the opiate of the masses!  The QPs are kinda like voting for the 'hip' candidate.   Society is so rushed and hurried they don't have time to make informed decisions so they go for the QP. The lottery marketers know this,   Obama is like a quick pick........ a 'losing ticket',  just like most QPs.   Since most tickets sold are QPs they are the biggest losers and the greatest profit for the 'State'.   If people were forced to think about the numbers they were going to play and there was no QP option................??????????????????????????

                The jackpots certainly wouldn't have as many participants initially but once they gain momentum more and more people would want to 'learn'  about the odds,  the strategies,  the financial implications, the whole game and be well informed as opposed to 'hoping' and 'changing' for something free.

                I guarantee you,  80% of the people that contribute to the jackpots have nary an idea of the tax implications of a big win much less keep track of the tickets,  millions are unpaid every year for non claiming.

                    Quick-Picks are for players who don't have the time too strategically select there numbers or don't know how I've never won a dime from a quick-pick but I have won from selecting my own numbers.

                        It's amazing how an attempt is made to compare two totally different issues. EVERYBODY had an equal shot at the jackpot and noone was forced to even play. If a person didn't like the odds, or  the selections for that matter, it was just as well NOT to play. Simple.

                        Just like a jackpot, lots of people played, anyway, hoping to get the winners. The "draw method" has been the same since its' inception. Tell me, do you also think that the person who wins that far and few between jackpot on a Quick Pick chose a losing ticket??

                        If you win the MM some day on a QP, tell me, will you say to the press, "It was a losing ticket?" and just give it away simply because YOU didn't choose it? Just not the right number, huh?

                        People had plenty of time to prepare for that jackpot. If or when your numbers don't hit, just keep trying and be glad for for those people that did "match". When yours do hit, still be glad and continue to play. 

                        The odds were against this man just like the odds are against you with the lottery...no difference. Yet, you STILL play the lottery and chances are you STILL VOTED. Based on your point of view, the odds were in your favor. 

                        Cut yourself some slack and don't be angry with the "system" that won but, rather the "system" that didn't "play enough numbers"...NUMBERS NEVER LIE. Remember that from now on.
