I know, everyone thinks the sales will be big and the pool of the QP combinations will be more completely exhausted. Therefore You think your chances of winning are better because you will buy from that pool. Hogwash. What you think and what is happening are two different things : with the multiple wins from QP’s in jackpot games, those results say the pool is limited and not exhausted. Furthermore it has been observed by players that the same losing sets of numbers were sold for the same game, same draw. Even further, multiple QP jackpot winners win from QPs in the same game, same draw for the jackpot prize.

If you are going to play these games, play your own combinations every draw or chase numbers. The QP pool is not the full pool for sale WITHOUT REPEAT or DUPLICATE SALES. What a waste of your money playing this way!

Playing Qp's is is betting in a fixed game where the house always wins. The fever for big jackposts insures that.

Very good point about repeat and duplicate sales. The majority of quick pick'ers may be victims of a quick pick pool. Who would know any better?

A person in Philadelphia PA might be tossing their losing qp ticket grumbling about the rotten numbers they got while another person in Erie, PA

might be tossing their ticket with the same numbers. How many people care to think beyond their losing numbers and just look forward to the next

game so they can try it again?

Thinking about quick picks in this way suggests doubt about whether they actually are random...I don't trust they are truly random. I woudn't

be surprised to hear many people are getting the same, exact numbers for the same game day.

I have to add, even with my skepticism, quick picks work. I wouldn't be telling anyone to go and only buy quick picks. I've never examined the

big game numbers beyond scanning them quickly for stand out patterns..I don't use spreadsheets, programs, etc and mainly when I do play,

I'll buy quick picks or fill in a ticket with some favorite numbers and hope for the best. Lately the best hasn't happened and I normally do not

like the jackpot games. I only liked it the day I won on, you guessed it, a quick pick. So you can't write them off completely because sometimes

you just get very lucky.

    At "the end of the day" no matter what the method of the number selection was, for six played numbers to match six drawn numbers is pure luck, and nothing more.

    Someone hits with a QP - LUCK

    Someone uses a NASA program - LUCK

    Someone plays six family birthdays - LUCK

    Someone plays six family borthdays, marks one wrong, and hits all six - LUCK

    Someone hits buy buying a mistake - LUCK

      People play quick picks because they can.  The typical quick pick player has nary an idea when the draw is or how the game is run.  The typical quick pick player is in a hurry therefore,  convenience.  The typical QP player does not know what Lottery Post is!  The typical QP player has no idea how to fill out a play slip.

      And here is a couple of questions for the picking masses:

      If there were no QP's available,  and people would have to learn to fill out play slips,  learn the odds,  would they still play?

      Would CT still tout the QP way?  Would there be a CT if there was no QP?

      Would American Pickers randomly pick?

      What?

          i say is because they know that the state lottery controls who wins, if they want to make you win they can...Something i still believe today....

          The Forex trades: 1.6 Trillion dollars EVERY day, that´s more than the GDP of the Carribbean Central America, COMBINED. Enough to feed every crook out there for centuries...To all Geniuses & Powers Countries of the World the Planet needs breakthroughs in all Medicine, Veterinary, Biology related fields, Psychology, Population Psychology/Sociology..They need to genetically ingeneer new plants species/types to give more variety of plants and thus have more resources for combating diseases¨

            People who only play QPs are the occasional players and they are the ones that win. At least that's what I believe.

            I believe that one should stop trying so hard (number work outs and systems) to win and just simply play without premediating.

                badboy00z, wood that what you said  is true, but no; not for me!  

                I do not buy QP on a regular basis But I do my workouts!  I have a neighbor and her daughter that all they do  is buy QPS and have not won any cash but do get a lot of Free Plays.  

                My digits have spoken on the  workout-sheet and have caused me to win!!!  not so with QPS besides the digits is my Passion, I love them, no stress here!! LoL

                But if QP's work for you,  then do you,  I will be rooting for you to hit that QP!!! Yes!!

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

                Now, does it count??

                    What?

                    Jarasan,

                    Let''s say some people play QPs for the reason you stated.

                    Now I'm a gonna try and a tole everybody one a more time, using a Pick 5 as an example since she's a drawn everyday,

                    2008:

                    To date:

                    68 Jackpots

                    56 QP  82.35%

                    35 PS    51.47%

                    2009:

                    To date:

                    76 Jackpots

                    65 QP 
                    85.52%

                    39 PS
                       51.31%

                    Total jackpot money paid out to date: $17,295,000

                    2010:

                    To date:

                    77 Jackpots

                    37 PP  48%

                    61 QP  79.22%

                    ___________________________________________

                    CT no always playa the quick pick. CT start a track a the game everyday a few years ago, CT see the jackpot go QP QP QP QP QP (usually played in Chicago). CT see a that for the last two and a half a year the QP always win a lotta more often than a the player pick.You looka at the percentages above, capish?

                    OOFANAPOLI! MANAHGE A DEE-AL!

                    A lotta people on LP they's a no like a da quick pick, they's a talk about how they pick a the number, they even deny the quick a pick hit a mosta the time, but I'm not a see a any of these people track a game to show actual results, ah?

                    Inna 2008 the quick pick she's a hit 30.88% of the time more than a the player pick.

                    In a 2009 the QP she's a 34.21% more often.

                    And so far inna 2010, she's a 31.22% a more often, prety consistent, no?

                    When a somebody who no likela the quick pick posta results that say the quick pick isn't as good as the pick-a-uoi-nose pick, then CT a listen up. But a so far all I see is opinion with a no verification. Until a then, I know whatta the stats a say, and the no-QP crowd, well a maybe they a STATATZEET.

                    Buono foruna,

                    Coin

                            No,  but really CT,  I and most everybody here don't care that more people hit with QP's, QP's they are not for ME or anybody who plays seriously to win............... not by a fluke or luck.  It is just irritating and pointless to keep repeating the QP mantras.  Go to Maddogs challenge's and use QP's and see how you do...  I use no QP's look at the stats.  Some players here have very good systems,  there have been several 5 of 5's and 6 of 6's on the predictions.

                              Now I'm a gonna try and a tole everybody one a more time, using a Pick 5 as an example since she's a drawn everyday,

                              2010:

                              To date:

                              61 QP  79.22%

                              ___________________________________________

                              CT no always playa the quick pick. CT start a track a the game everyday a few years ago, CT see the jackpot go QP QP QP QP QP (usually played in Chicago). CT see a that for the last two and a half a year the QP always win a lotta more often than a the player pick.You looka at the percentages above, capish?

                              OOFANAPOLI! MANAHGE A DEE-AL!

                              A lotta people on LP they's a no like a da quick pick, they's a talk about how they pick a the number, they even deny the quick a pick hit a mosta the time, but I'm not a see a any of these people track a game to show actual results, ah?

                              Inna 2008 the quick pick she's a hit 30.88% of the time more than a the player pick.

                              In a 2009 the QP she's a 34.21% more often.

                              And so far inna 2010, she's a 31.22% a more often, prety consistent, no?

                              When a somebody who no likela the quick pick posta results that say the quick pick isn't as good as the pick-a-uoi-nose pick, then CT a listen up. But a so far all I see is opinion with a no verification. Until a then, I know whatta the stats a say, and the no-QP crowd, well a maybe they a STATATZEET.

                              Buono foruna,

                              Coin

                               

                               

                               

                               


                              These stats don't mean anything by themselves.  What were the total sales of QP's versus Self Picks for each winning jackpot draw?
