I play mostly my own picks, but will occasionally play a QP with them. Why? Just because. It's a "lottery". There is no right way or wrong way to play.

The main reason I play my own picks is not because I think I can crack a "code". It's because I enjoy looking at the numbers in past draws and try to pick what will come out in the next draw. So while I'm trying to hit a jackpot, it's entertainment for me to work the numbers.

Out of curiosity, I checked all of the jackpot winners for Tx Lotto going back to the last matrix change in 2006, and about 65% of the winners were QP's.

    I too work the numbers for the fun of it, but throw in an ocassional QP.

    I'm too lazy to check all of the jackpot winners for NY's 5/39 game. The NY lottery has the last 365 drawings on their website where they state whether or not the jackpot was won by a QP, but it would be a lot of screen changes, so I'll pass. My guess is it's 2 out of 3 drawings are won by at least one QP's. (It's pari-mutuel so sometimes multiple players split the jackpot.  The Lottery states which one(s) of the winners were a QP, if any.)

    I recently submitted an "Ask the Lottery" question from their site.   I asked what's the percentage of QP's sold for their 5/39 game each day.  I received an answer that surprised me a little.  It was 55%.  My guess was that it was a higher percentage.  I had guessed in a range of 65 to 75% of all the 5/39 tickets sold daily were QP's.

    About playing the lottery --  You will lose more than you win. Until you hit a jackpot.  Then everything changes!

      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.

      People continue to play after the jackpot is hit and the number of QPs in those drawings is probably far less than 70%. As a systems player my goal was always to win the jackpot, but my play was designed to win enough from secondary prizes to cover the cost of play. My game of choice was Rolling Cash 5 where the jackpots started at $100,000. With the low end payoffs and the high overall odds of PB and MM, I never found a system that could cover the cost of play.

      "Let me reiterate,  the largest losing block of tickets that comprise the jackpot roll-overs are LOSER QP's."

      You won't get an argument from me, but doesn't that prove why people play QPs?

      When the jackpots are high, quickpickers don't care what numbers they get; they just want a chance to win it and when the jackpot is won, they simply trash the tickets and most won't buy another ticket until the jackpot is high again. It really does matter how much they spend because that's what perpetuates the jackpot.

        Tenure here?!!!  AT LP?!!!!  LMAO

        http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tenure

        Under the tenure systems adopted as internal policy by many universitiesand colleges, especially in the United States and Canada, tenure is associated with more senior job titles such as Professor and Associate Professor.

        A junior professorwill not be promoted to such a tenured position without demonstrating a strong record of published research, teaching, and administrative service.

        One cost of a tenure system is that some tenured professors may not use their freedom for the common good.

         

        http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/tenure

         

        ten·ure

        /'t?n y?r/ Show Spelled[ten-yer] Show IPA

        –noun

        1.

        the holding or possessing of anything: the tenure of an office.

        2.

        the holding of property, esp. real property, of a superior in return for services to be rendered.

        3.

        the period or term of holding something.

        4.

        status granted to an employee, usually after a probationary period, indicating that the position or employment is permanent.

        –verb (used with object)

        5.

        to give tenure to: After she served three years on probation, the committee tenured her.

        Nice try ProfessorConehead. Go take your self-assigned tenure and buy a corndog and a slurpy with it. You don’t even have a paid membership here and your tenure should deliver at least a Gold level membership. Once again you want proof. Show me the proof you have a PHD. Show me the proof of your tenure. Show me where tenure is a site privilege. Get off the pipe. There is no pecking order here at LP, only user privileges. Don’t come across like you have some seniority status and privileged site status. The last thing I will do here is prove to a lazy dreamer what can be done. If it were not for egos and their flagrant violations of reality, the jackpots would never grow like they do. In fact, I think QP’s are great but not for me to play.

        Oh and that loser shill for QP’s would say that anyone winning with their own sets were just lucky to dilute the event. No, I think there is nothing to prove except rational minds do not go hand-in-hand with the ‘only QP ‘ mindset. CT only worked in a casino. If he was a brilliant expert on games he would be a winner. He is no different than the losers he served. He was likely just a Keno runner.

        He would also have an acute understanding of odds and would approach the games he would have a chance to win in with an advantage. He has neither, but instead ‘luck’ to guide and help him. He is so opposed to any systematic approach that he is either totally insane (look at his threads) or a shill for the lotteries. The latter would indicate he still works for the house.

          so instead of standing up for what you believe in,  and backing up your claim,  you instead post some long winded smoke screen "unwillingness" excuse so you can skate off into "i don't have to - land".

          i knew you would,  because you pulled the same thing in the other thread when i created a scenario that would truthfully unveil your beliefs,  vs your abilities to back them up in reality.

          same thing, different day,  different subject matter.

          personally,  i don't have a problem with "systems players",  as i could care less if they wanna persue what i think amounts to a waste of time,  but i picked you based on your rediculous arrogance in here,  plus going after someone behind their back,  taking swipes at them when they cannot read what your saying about them.  that is as cheap as it gets

          all i needed to do is once again demonstrate your a man who can handle the english language better than most, but when it comes down and dirty about what you "trumpet",  you can't produce squat when the time comes

          had you actually had something to prove,  you could have done it easily  by utilizing the pick3 game

          instead,  you spend 20min going off on some word i chose to explain my length of time  i have spent here at LP observing "integrity giants" like yourself.

           

          men that can, will.   men that can't,  never will, and will blame others why they "can't"

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

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

                   until further notice,  it's  france everyday

            The QPickers are Bu!!s$it!  Go to the jackpot challenges!  Post your your QP's there and see how you do.  Do us another favor,  use your vision and find the SHift key on the keyboard,  I'll give you a hint there is one on the left next to the Z and one on the right next to the ?/ key.

            How long did it take you to to decide what we should do to prove your moronic crap?  Would it have taken longer if you used CAPS?

            as far as posting my QP's in the jackpot challenges go,  that wasn't my aim, to go over there and stir that pot.

            my aim was to bring to the surface DD's little game,  and as you can tell,  my "challenge" was aimed at him,  not you.

             

            now,  what's this deal over the "CAPS"  issue you have?

              P3 game? I posted not once but twice BEFORE the DRAW RESULTS WERE OUT FROM MY STATE WHAT TO EXPECT. I threw clues all over the place and if nobody got the win the second time, it was their own dang fault.

              You want me to post the next single P3 set in the strait order? YOU CANNOT AFFORD ME and you cannot goad me into doing so. Anybody following me knows that. My LP Favorites are open to the public for one week ending next Monday. You like every lazy QP artist want the sets and not the work that produces them. The work is outlined in recent SYSTEMS posts of mine. Go hump somebody else’s leg, loser. You are a nobody. Never be anybody or make PEOPLE magazine like you dream about. Why have you not won in the last 8 years? You are a loser.

                how does it feel to be relegated into the annals of LP thread lore,  of those who "couldn't"?

                you certainly weren't the first,  probably won't be the last,  but you sure are in the majority  who are "unwilling" to back up what they claim when the time arrives.

                fortunately LP has archived footage of me exposing peoples games similar to yours. 

                 going back 8 years of my "willingness" to deal with someones inability to control their rediculousness

                it's part of what i do in here

                      Unfortunately I THOUGHT it was a reliable source I was buying data from.  It did not turn out to be the case -- it was a waste of money.

                      Unfortunately, what I have found is that there are NO reliable sources of data for purchase.  As a result, I have spent years of personal effort making the Lottery Post data the most reliable that can be found anywhere, game by game.  It has been a massively intense, tedious process, but the end result is that Lottery Post premium members have access to the most reliable and accurate data anywhere.  I am not saying it is "perfect", because I think that would be presumptuous, but I am saying it's the best.

                          Todd,

                          That's a bummer about not even buying able to buy reliable information.

                          I think the only way to really compile it is day by day or drawing by drawing, but to do so for multiple states and games would indeed be a total nightmare.

                          But if people did pick a game and track it drawing after drawing for at least a year they might see some consistency as far as what wins.

                          In football the dog at home on Monday night was a very popular bet for a while, but then Monday after Monday the other side won the money.

                          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.

                            as far as posting my QP's in the jackpot challenges go,  that wasn't my aim, to go over there and stir that pot.

                            my aim was to bring to the surface DD's little game,  and as you can tell,  my "challenge" was aimed at him,  not you.

                             

                            now,  what's this deal over the "CAPS"  issue you have?

                            It is easier to read with capitals and by not using capital letters at the beginning of sentences deters one from wanting to read and understand your thought process.   Also when you don't use capitals at the beginning of sentences,  it trivializes what you are saying,  you know like someone who doesn't really think or care about what they are writing.  It looks like one big run on sentence train of thought hyped out psycho babble.  I think though,  you capitalize God, right?  And DD? And QP's?

                              Unfortunately I THOUGHT it was a reliable source I was buying data from.  It did not turn out to be the case -- it was a waste of money.

                              Unfortunately, what I have found is that there are NO reliable sources of data for purchase.  As a result, I have spent years of personal effort making the Lottery Post data the most reliable that can be found anywhere, game by game.  It has been a massively intense, tedious process, but the end result is that Lottery Post premium members have access to the most reliable and accurate data anywhere.  I am not saying it is "perfect", because I think that would be presumptuous, but I am saying it's the best.

                              It is the best all in one place for data and the fastest.
