In New York, it's true that QP's win the most jackpots.  Do you play strictly QP's? If so, why?

Why do people play quick picks??!!

Because of this topic,  I asked a neighbor who plays nothing but QPs?!

Here are her answers...."Because I want to, I saw how many people won with them  and Because If I am going to win, I am going to win!"   I aske  "how long have you been playing", she said   "oh about...my daughter was around five when I started Playin she is 27 now...Yes, 22 years!! 

Wow I said "have you ever came close.... she replied "well, yes and no, I had a lot of 3 out of 5 and about 5 times,  I got 4 out of 6" 

Perception is a very interesting thing, absent of any concrete and undeniable, recordable proof  that QP is better that any  developed method, we are told that indeed we should all just abandoned  any number research and all just become a group of QP players!! 

Because some believe/"know"/perceive,  that it's better and it works for them!   ok, that's good for them!! However,

 I believe "know" perceive that my method of picking the numbers work for me, why????!!  because I have gone many times to cash on those very tickets, won with information I had from my workout sheets... many times corroborated by information from a few LP Players;  It has work for me more times than the purchase of a QP;  all I ever gotten from those, are some free plays....that never played!...LOL...LOL..

Why do people play QP's???    I believe it's as simple as what my neighbor said,  because they want to, they herd how some have won Jackpots with them, they believe in them...

and I will never speak against that with anyone who strongly believe in them Belief is a very importante component....

 My Neighbor and I spoke, and she continues with her QP choices and I continue with my friends the Digits, that I love so much!  end of Story. the end!

Next week she is coming over we are going to bake an Upside Down cake  and a Red Velvet cake for her daughters Birthday!! 

forget what "they" say about youWhat you say about you?...

Now, does it count??

      Indee tiggs so be it!! when you chose to QP that is a coise one makes! so what ever the outcome you must be happy as well,   

      When I look at my sheet and buy my numbers based on what I see it's indee my choise also, the diference is in this case it wes trully my choise; and not the choise of  a selection made for me!!

            i should have been more complete in my explanation of QP's  vs "systems"  beliefs.

            i buy 1 quick pick,  because for me it an easy way to tell if i am "meant to".   any more than that,  is a waste of time and money.......for me.

            i have zero problem with a different angle than mine,  in that someone prefers to choose their own numbers, instead of a QP.

            if a person thinks that birthday numbers are more fun to play than a QP for instance,  have at it.

            the part i disagree with,  and work against theory wise, is the notion that anyone can gain an edge in winning any lottery thru any type of number selection,   because the lottery is a completely 100% random / unpredictable event.

            random in it's design,  and unpredictable by any human

            there is no portion of a lottery drawing that is "predictable",  so long as the drawings have all the integrity security features in place.

            what bothers me about "systems" proponents thinking "it" works,  is the false future hope attached to that perceived possibility,  and how much time - effort - money people throw at a truly random / unpredictable event.

            that's why i contend against "systems".   it's not that i am against "numbers",  and advocate "QP only",   it's the notion that someone can win consistently with a "system",   and the false hope that provides others.

             

            lottery has been around for how long?    the only ones who have been able to crack it,  are the "lottery officials" who taint the draws,  and share the wealth with other accessories to their crime.

            even common sense applied to that sentance knows it's random

            pure and simple,  man ditches their common sense when they dream of a "maybe"

            not anti-numbers,  or just pro-QP,  just anti-"systems"

              One Sunday morning on one of the NFL pre-game shows the late Pete Axthelm spoke for about 15 minutes on betting on football.

              He talked about home field advantage, is it a natural grass team on the road against an artifical surface team, is the QB having problems at home, on and on and one with such things.

              Then, near the very end of his dissertation, he had a stage hand throw a football out on to the floor of the stage set, and he said, "So in the long run you're betting on how something shaped like this is going to bounce."

              Green laugh

              He who has ears let him hear.

              Vegas handicappers (sports and pony bettors) who play parlay cards consider anything beyond a three teamer as a Keno or lottery ticket. In other words, hitting them is pure luck.

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

              Lep

              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.

                Vision, you said "Lottery has been around for how long? the only ones that have been able to crack it are the Lottery Officilas who taint the draws and share the wealth with other accessories to their crime"


                Then you say: "There is not portion of a Lottery drawing that is predictable...SO LONG as the drawings have all the Integrity security features in place"

                Is it just me?!  or are those two contradictory Statements??

                If not!  then those words you wrote are the very reason why;  we can do our workout sheets,  knowing that the digits are  manipulated  and it is NOT drawn with  pristine "Integrity and Security". that's the only way you say it would not be predictable!

                 1.They are cracking it and passing information to friends as you said!

                 2. therefore it is not been Drawn with Integrity and Security!

                forget what "they" say about youWhat you say about you?...

                      nope,  not contradictory at all.

                       

                      for any person to say the can manipulate a lottery result in their favor,  is completely untrue......unless like i alluded to......they had inside "help".

                      much like that lottery movie "lucky numbers" with john travolta,  where he arranged "inside help".

                      other than that,  the lottery is purely a random event,  so long as it is conducted with security and integrity measures in place.

                      because they change machines and ball sets regularly,  there isn't even a possibility someone could gain an edge,  even if they could statistic-wise pick up some "mechanical" bias,  and play off of the averages of that.

                      the interchange of different machines and ballsets makes that possibility -------->  impossible

                      you always have to go back to this as a true measurement.......the time the lottery has been around,  vs the ability of players to consistently extract money from it.

                      anyone who does.........it's WAY more of the "fate" factor,  rather than "skill"

                      so unless you are able to sneak into the room pre-drawing,  and paint an undetectable "pimple" on the balls (to weight it) you have marked on your pre-drawing playslip.......then no..........not gonna happen

                                  "i am .........."meant to"

                          then you do have God blessing you thru this avenue,  because the lottery is random jrosina.

                          "number selection" has nothing to do with it

                           

                          why would you sell yourself short like that anyway,  and automatically discount yourself from what He could,  or wants to do thru your life?

                          you know enough about who God is,  and how He works to know it's not so much about what you have/have not done,  that necessarily negates OR facilitates Gods "blessings".

                          sure,  we can both put ourselves in a position where God can trust us......and we can exclude ourselves from it for willful disobedience,  but.....

                          the beauty of Gods grace is that more often than not God blesses us when we don't  "deserve" it.

                          why?   because He loves us.

                            but you know just as well as i do that when God blesses us especially when we don't deserve it - guess who gets the credit for that?   you or Him?

                          think of it this way.      soloman,  who probably even by todays standards, was (and is still is)  the richest man that ever lived,  and he sure didn't "deserve it".

                          4 things....

                          (1) don't make it out to be anything other than what it is.  "if"  God is blessing you this way,  go with it, and thank Him for it. 

                          (2)  don't assign it to anything else but Him,  because if you do,  there is that "chance" that He can remove it as well,  because He will not share the "credit" of it's "origin"  with anything/anyone else.

                          (3)  from now on,  you do not live in the land of "self qualification",  because none of us can anyway.  that's self defeating, because our lives go "up and down" that way drastically at times,  whereas God is always linear.

                          (4)  be careful about what you say to others about "what" God happens to be doing in your life.  just because it is happening to you,  doesn't mean it will in others. 

                          God has a plan for each of us,  and when it gets down to it,  money or no money, "amounts of money"  isn't what keeps us spiritually afloat.     given a week to live......"money" will buy a better funeral,  that's all

                           a relationship with Christ doesn't matter if you have $2 or $200 in your wallet.......it's the same

                          personally,  the reason i play 1 QP,  is because of my signature,  and when that happens.....the last thing i want is for someone to blame what happen to me on some "numbers" excuse.

                          not me.  i want "the blame" to fall squarely on Gods shoulders.......cuz His are bigger than mine

                           

                          i want 100% of the credit to end up where it rightfully belongs,  otherwise what i have,  becomes "rust"

                                      "i am .........."meant to"       

                          P.S.,  that RJoH  is a stand up guy.  thanks,  vision

                                   until further notice,  it's  france everyday

                            Vission; I say Yes!!!  to HIM Having ALL the Credit!!! Because it is HIS!!!  Yes to what HE is doing!

                            I will take your advice about the self beating up; I do on a regular Basis; Just Don't want any surprices on That Day

                            YESHUA HAMESSIAH Said many will come on that day and they are going to hear some not so good news!!!  I Don't want to be among those who take HIS Grace and MERCY for GRanted!!!   

                            But on your take on the QP, I am going to have to Disagree with the Quick Pick thing.  

                            Vision, Who gives the capacity to formulate thoughts and Ideas, is it not HIM so how could any one be arrogant  and foolish enough  to take Credit for something that is not theirs in the first place!!!

                            The Brain was not an idea of ours...LOL...LOL... As I sit her typing on this key board I marvel how HE allows me to fly through these set of letters with such ease and almost effortless! can I dear take Credit for even this???!!!  NO!!! Absolutely NOT!!

                            You winning with QP's or by collecting number data you have to use the braain HE gave! so all will ALWAYS BE to HIS credit!  Not yours or mine!  That Much I am clear on!! 

                            On all the other eye-opening things you said, I will meditate on and I will say  thanks for this,    So Thank you Vission,  you are a great person!

                            forget what "they" say about youWhat you say about you?...

                            Now, does it count??
