I won't give ya a dime more than $75, not one dime more.

Not one dime more? Not one dime more... hmmm... Where have I heard that before?

I know it couldn't relate to taxes for people making under $250,000 because the President is cancelling Bush's tax cuts on January 1st and everybody's taxes are going to skyrocket. The lowest tax bracket of the working poor which is 10% now is being raised 50%. The working poor are getting the biggest increase in tax percentage paid.

So I know it couldn't have been the Prez who said "not one dime more in taxes", right?

That would mean he's a liar.

Oh well, anyway, that's my final offer on my system tiggs, take it or leave it

OH..O'BOMBER,   O'BUMMER!!!  say it aint sooooo!!

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

Now, does it count??

    Hey Stack I'm glad you chimed in on this.  Let us not forget the proportion of LOSING QP's to losing self pix is much greater.  Let me reiterate,  the largest losing block of tickets that comprise the jackpot roll-overs are LOSER QP's.  It doesn't matter what jackpot game you are talking about.  I don't care how much anyone spends on tix it ain't yo or my biz,  but the jackpot size and the racket which is QP's and RNG does affect us all.

          Keep on keepin' on with the QP's we need them fattie jackpots!  Heck,  the self pickers wouldn't be so motivated if it weren't for all them Quickie Pickers that are in a such a great hurry to lose and fatten up that ol' jackpot by 70% or more.

            There is only one dyed in the wool QP’r here and we need his bad luck to keep the pot up.

            We are diversified and understanding of people of different demographics ( even when they are wrong). If he wants to rub his hairless QP rabbits foot to the bone, let him. We must understand that the QP’rs 'only' crowd makes our lives that much more a victory dance under the goalpost.

              In the sense of the glass being half empty or half full, from another LP member in the Jackpot forums let's consider this:

              So there is no need to buy multipletickets in order to win big.  That is why you see people winning themega millions and powerball with $1 QUICK PICK ALL THE TIME.  Smartplayers collect money from those players that push the jackpot toa higher amount by playing the least amount of money as possible.Forexample on 8/28/2009 two smart players won the $336 million megamillions jackpot by playing $1 QUICK PICK EACH.  The player from BRONXNY won half of it by playing $1 QUICK PICK WITH THE 26 ANNUAL PAYMENTOPTION.  The player from CALIFORNIA won half of it by playing $1 QUICKPICK WITH THE CASH VALUE OPTION.  These players realized that there wasa big jackpot, therefore resulting in a large pool of peopleparticipating.  So they each played a small amount to win big.Bythe way, there were also players from NEW YORK that won the secondprize of $250,000 buy playing $1 QUICK PICK ON 8/28/2009 TOO.

              Continues:

              http://www.lotterypost.com/thread/216951

              As far a smost losing tickets being quick picks, DUH!, it has top be that way because most tickets bought are quick picks.

              As this discussion ingended to be about Why Do You Play Quick Picks continues to go down rabbit trails about the suppoossed superiority of picking one's own numbers, quick picks continue to be the preponderence of jackpot winners.

              Prove me wrong if you can, but you can't, thus no one else has posted actual results. Pretty simple request, pick a game, post what wins more often.

              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.

                  Like I said, it's a simple request, pick a game, track what wins, and post it instead of opinionated play by play in a continued thread hi-jack, get to the final score.

                  Why the reluctance to do so? Afraid of the results?

                    I have nothing to prove about QP's,  you are correct,   more people play QP's,  more people win with QP's,  MOST people LOSE with QP's.  Nobody is afraid of results,  I've spent enough on QP's to know that most money is LOST on QPs you broken frinking record.  Get high speed internet.

                      Hey jarasan, the guy was some casino employee and thinks he knows it all. He is right about his perspective and you have to consider he watched people lose all the time. Real objective thinking is not his strong suit but he can count. Don’t bother trying to take someone who believes in a lottery fairy, down the road of cause and effect. He does not even see his bad luck is a product of his perceptions. He is not a critical thinker, but the type that can make big fat claims and not have to back them up. He thinks myself and others who do not see the beauty in superstitions as ignorant clods.

                      Note that he worked the tables and never made it to upper management. He only saw the real brains at the casinos, but never got to peek inside. He does like statistics but all of his observations have an immeasurable component of luck. He cannot be rational about any systems approach and is strongly against them all. He has his lucky fairy, lucky stars and fortune cookies to lose with. He is unlikely a team player and his ignorant outbursts have cost him dearly. He has  about as  much as brilliance as the Poles who were mounting an offensive in WWII with septic tanks.

                      When you read his BS, just consider the source. He is the only one here who is single minded as a QP player. He plays them not because he knows better, but because his job is to push QP's and TRASH SYSTEMS.

                      Nice pigs, BTW.

                        the problem with quick picks is that, if you get a: 5/5 + 0 you can almost say that you will NEVER get another approximation you will never get close enough again so you may as well QUIT....

                        the best thing is to pool...If pooling was legal in all states most people will pool than play quick picks...

                        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¨

                            "He is the only one here who is single minded as a QP player"

                             

                             nope,  wrong again DD.   there have been several over the years,  even though "we" are far outnumbered.

                            i have been at LP  8 years trumpeting the same ballpark things coin has been saying lately about quick picks, so i too am a "single-minded QPer".   i fact,  i used to "make sure" that when people first vistited LP,  and stated that they "had" the means to crack it,  i did what i am good at........made em prove it.    of course,  none could.

                             

                            for me,  because i am a Christian,  it makes perfect sense to buy 1 quick pick, for these following reasons ;

                            (1) if God is supposedly "soverign" over my life,  then His plan for my life is achievable by Him, at anytime of His choosing,  including the most minute details of my life,  and by sheer deduction,  is more than able to tell me whether or not i am "meant to", so that i do not waste His time, or mine,  chasing something that isn't supposed to happen anyway.

                            (2) 1 quick pick is more than an efficient way of finding that out,  and to me,  anything beyond that,  both effort wise (systems),  and financially (multiple tickets),  is a waste of time and money given the astronomical odds and randomness of the jackpot games.  (i also believe that anything below that, down to the pick3 is still too random to "predict").  but especially,  the jackpot games.

                            (3) coin toss is correct about the percentage of players buying "quick picks" and winning (70%+),  and you guys are correct when you say "that's because most players buy quick picks",  because that is true also.

                            what "you guys" (systems advocates) fail to mention is that the 70% QP win percentage,  vs the percentage buying QP's has zero to do in the real  win / loss column.   why?   because there are plenty enough "systems players" playing the system,  that if they really had the ability to do what they claim they can,  they would win on an incredibly more common basis.

                            EVEN ONCE

                            just narrow it down to systems players that just make their home at LP.    in 8 years of LP observance,  how many of those players ever won a single jackpot?   

                             LP,  i dare say,  contains the most brilliant minds as far as statistical lottery analysis goes, in every shape, form or color that one can come up with as far as going after a jackpot from a 'systems' angle.   from the sublime to the completely ludicrous, and every imaginable attempt in between.

                            it's a false front to compare "numbers" of players doing what.  the real story,  as to whether it is a "system" that will work,  vs fate, luck, or whatever someone else assigns their future to,  the hard facts remain,  no "system" has ever proved it "can"

                              "He is the only one here who is single minded as a QP player"

                               

                               nope,  wrong again DD.   there have been several over the years,  even though "we" are far outnumbered.

                              i have been at LP  8 years trumpeting the same ballpark things coin has been saying lately about quick picks, so i too am a "single-minded QPer".   i fact,  i used to "make sure" that when people first vistited LP,  and stated that they "had" the means to crack it,  i did what i am good at........made em prove it.    of course,  none could.

                               

                              for me,  because i am a Christian,  it makes perfect sense to buy 1 quick pick, for these following reasons ;

                              (1) if God is supposedly "soverign" over my life,  then His plan for my life is achievable by Him, at anytime of His choosing,  including the most minute details of my life,  and by sheer deduction,  is more than able to tell me whether or not i am "meant to", so that i do not waste His time, or mine,  chasing something that isn't supposed to happen anyway.

                              (2) 1 quick pick is more than an efficient way of finding that out,  and to me,  anything beyond that,  both effort wise (systems),  and financially (multiple tickets),  is a waste of time and money given the astronomical odds and randomness of the jackpot games.  (i also believe that anything below that, down to the pick3 is still too random to "predict").  but especially,  the jackpot games.

                              (3) coin toss is correct about the percentage of players buying "quick picks" and winning (70%+),  and you guys are correct when you say "that's because most players buy quick picks",  because that is true also.

                              what "you guys" (systems advocates) fail to mention is that the 70% QP win percentage,  vs the percentage buying QP's has zero to do in the real  win / loss column.   why?   because there are plenty enough "systems players" playing the system,  that if they really had the ability to do what they claim they can,  they would win on an incredibly more common basis.

                              EVEN ONCE

                              just narrow it down to systems players that just make their home at LP.    in 8 years of LP observance,  how many of those players ever won a single jackpot?   

                               LP,  i dare say,  contains the most brilliant minds as far as statistical lottery analysis goes, in every shape, form or color that one can come up with as far as going after a jackpot from a 'systems' angle.   from the sublime to the completely ludicrous, and every imaginable attempt in between.

                              THOUSANDS of logged man hours chasing the ever elusive jackpot with their ever changing "system".   day after day after day,  ad infinitum for 10 years that LP has been in exisistence.
