i read a lottery study over quick picks and self picked numbers based on last 15 years its report said with so many computer generated quick picks they account for only 15percent of winners of jackpots whilst 85 percent came from non quick picks often when sometimes leaving my lottery ticket at home i have bought quick picks and found very rare a win or lucky 3 matching numbers ive never hit 4 numbers with a quick pick in last 20 years
You didn't provide any raw data on your 15% but Coin Toss' Illinois Lil Lotto data proves the opposite; more QPs are sold and more QPs win those jackpots
And from the Powerball website:
About 70% to 80% of purchases are computer picks. About 70% to 80% of winners are computer picks. Perhaps just one of those weird coincidences?
These statistics are based over time and on probability. The same it true if 70% to 80% of the tickets are purchased in highly populated areas, 70% to 80% of the jackpot winners will come from those areas.
