jarasan,

"No,  but really CT,  I and most everybody here don't care that morepeople hit with QP's, QP's they are not for ME or anybody who playsseriously to win............... not by a fluke or luck.  It is justirritating and pointless to keep repeating the QP mantras. "

So where are those wins? It gets just as tedious, if not more so, hearing about non-productive systems and how great they are, with absolutely nothing to show for them, as it does QP "mantras". Like I've said over and over, track a game and post the stats. Why don't people do that, because they know they'll be proven wrong? I would think when anybody wins over a million dollars, tens of millions, they'll take it regardless of the method of number selection.

jimwright,

How do you figure those stats don't mean anything? X number of jackpots paid and the preponderence went to QPs, over and over and over.

I don't know if that information on total sales is available, but the info. on what wins the most is, and what wins the most is quick picks [/story]

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

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.

    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.

    There is nothing here to argue really, really! Those who believe in their QP should stay  with what they like and believe no problem....Quick pick your way into a huge Jackpot!! I will be Happy!.

    those who believe in their worksheets will continue with their worksheet...May we get the right combo with the digits and Win rapid fire repeatedly and Big!!! There should be no bone to pick!! The end!

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

    Now, does it count??

      The total sales per draw matters because if the number of QP's per jackpot winning draw is 10:1 ratio to self-picks, then of course QP's are going to win more jackpots than self picks, that is a given.  This is the same lame argument that others cry about low population states never winning jackpots compared to high population states.  If for each jackpot winning draw the same number of people played QP's versus Self Picks and the QP's prevailed then you would make a believer out of me.  But you and me both know that for each individual drawing there are more QP's played than self picks and for only that reason alone do QP's win more jackpots, end of story.  QP's win more jackpots because more money is being played on the QP side of the betting line.  What if the odds makers to encourage more bets on the self picks side gave the self pickers odds to sweeten the pot?  Now that I could go for.

        Another reason people play QP's is they don't understand wheels.  Wheels give you this:

              Another reason people play QP's is because they are too busy working to pay taxes and think they won't have to pay taxes if they win big on the lottery!

                  Another couple of reasons people play Qp's is because someone told them it was the only way to play and you gotta be in it to win it!

                      Another reason and probably the most obvious reason people play QP's..................they don't have or know what a system is.

                        I get sideways.

                        Then I go buy some quick picks.

                        I don't hardly never win nothin.

                        But at least I get sideways.

                        My system's for sale, by the way.

                            jarasan,

                            Not everyone plays like you do. The average ticket sale is $1. Not all QP players don't know how wheels work, but they do know if none of the wheeled numbers hit they are worthless.

                            Besides, the title of this thread is:

                            Why do people play QP's?

                            not, "Why are you God's gift to number selection?"


                            jimwright,

                            No one is doubting that most sales arequick picks. On the Mega Milliins FAQ page is says something like 70 to 80% of jackpots winners are quick picks and 70 to 80% of ticket sales are quick picks, do you spot anything here? (or something similar).

                            We've seen a lot of jackpots go to a lot of quick picks. We've seen a lot of people telling us how great their numbers are, but no jackpots. Call me silly but I don't think chump change "give a dog a bone" payoffs are the real motive for playing the lottery.

                            As for sweetening the pot for self pickers, nice idea but lotteries being lotteries would just get real creative with the marketing and make it sound like that was the deal without really changing a thing.

                              There you go again,  same old story,  same old talking points,  a broken 78RPM frinking record.  The pragmatist,  the realist,  the logical,  let me tell you "How it really is".  The person that was chanting "burn the witch" in the 1600's Salem, Mass., the person that taunted Michelangelo "the rock is a gonna breaka!",  the person that stood on the beach laughing at the Wright brothers,  the person that screamed at the TV "the moon is made of cheese!"  when JFKennedy said we are going to the moon.   Nanny naysayers.  Here you go: Re read.

                              Another reason people play QP's is because they like to lose their tickets,  most unclaimed jackpots are QP's!

                              Another reason people play QP's is because they are too busy working to pay taxes and think they won't have to pay taxes if they win big on the lottery!

                              Another couple of reasons people play Qp's is because someone told them it was the only way to play and you gotta be in it to win it!

                              Another reason and probably the most obvious reason people play QP's..................they don't have or know what a system is."
