The lottery best kept secret=BUYING MORE THAN ONE TICKET INCREASES YOUR CHANCES OF WINNING.Yeah, i know everybody knows that.OK so we agree with something.Yes i know that many have won with a SINGLE LINE QUICK PICK, but i stll believe that PLAYING 2 LINES QUICK PICK IN ONE DRAWING IS BETTER THAN PLAYING A SINGLE LINE QUICK PICK FOR THE SAME DRAWING. The real winner of the following drawing was the jackpot winner.She double her chances of winning by playing 2 lines quick pick.As you can see there was someone that won $250k five times using self picks, but nothing can beat RANDOM LUCK. Who do you think that won more, the jackpot winner or the person that won $250k five times? I CHANGED MY BLOG NAME TO http://www.packalonji.blogspot.com/ .GOOD LUCK EVERYBODY US Flag

Here is another video of someone that won in new york BY PLAYING 2 LINES QUICK PICK INSTEAD OF ONE. Do not worry about that multiple second prize winner, double your chances of winning by PLAYING 2 LINES QUICK PICK, OR SIMPLY PLAY MORE LINES.You can still PLAY 1 LINE QUICK PICK, but sometimes is better to play more than one line if you do not want to wait forever.

    Mathematically speaking when you have 1 ticket(with one line), your odds are 1/x, where x is the number of possible combinations there are. So if you're playing a Pick 6/48 game, with 1 ticket, your odds are 1 / 12,271,512. However, even with 1 ticket, I would feel like my odds are slightly better given the fact that the majority of the time, the winning numbers drawn are usually spread out over a wide range and the majority of quick pick numbers also span a wide range. I'm simply not going to worry about numbers such as 1 2 3 4 5 6, 1 3 6 7 13 16, or 38 40 43 44 45 48 coming out. I'm can't give an exact number of combinations that probably won't come out, but based on statistics, it's fair to say that a small percentage of combinations aren't very likely to come out.

      PLAYING 1 LINE QUICK PICK VERSUS PLAYING  2 LINES QUICK PICK  can be illustrated by the following comparisons

      AN AUTOMATIC PISTOL VS. A SHOTGUN.

      Yes the shotgun is the smart choice. When a shotgun is fired all those pellets that are crammed into the cartridge spread out, so it is easier to hit the target.The point is that when you PLAY 1 LINE QUICK PICK on the lottery is like using the automatic pistol you have to have a very steady hand.You might get lucky, but your chances of hitting all the balls is very small.

      Yeah, you might say comparing an automatic pistol to a shotgun is not fair. The lottery is not fair either, the odds are stacked against us. PLAYING 2 LINES QUICK PICK VERSUS 1 LINE QUICK PICK IN A PARTICULAR DRAWING GIVES US A FAIR ADVANTAGE.

        I can give you exact figures. For any given drawing, of the 12,271,512 possible combinations exactly 12,271,512 are extremely unlikely to come out. If there's any question, "extremely unliklely" means the chances are 1 in 12,271,512 .

          "it's fair to say that a small percentage of combinations aren't very likely to come out"   

          In a 6/48 game, a combination such as 1 2 3 4 5 6 is in a group of 4,368  possibe combinations out of 12,271,512.  That's .0035594% of the total possible combinations.

          While KYFLOYD is correct in that 12,271,512 combinations are extremely unlikely to come out, some possible combinations of 6 numbers in a 6/48 game are in a group of 230,400  combinations. A combo such as 10 21 25 33 38 46 falls into that group.  Given that there's never been six sequential numbers drawn in any lottery anywhere, I'd play 10 21 25 33 38 46 before I'd play 1 2 3 4 5 6.

          Yes, it's true, each of the 12,271,512 possible combo's have an equal chance of comming out.  That said, IMHO, it's more about what will probably happen.  I believe combo's like 1 2 3 4 5 6 have a low degree of probability of comming out as compared to the probability of a combo like 10 21 25 33 38 46 comming out.

          So I too refuse to worry about six sequential numbers being drawn.

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

            Mathematically you are correct, which I pointed out in my post. What I was explaining was that when you pull numbers from the same pool, such as Pick 5, Pick 6, or the white balls in Powerball or Mega Millions, they are more prone to being numbers spread over a wide range. This is a natural occurence. This is the reason why even though I might buy X amount of tickets, I personally feel my odds are slightly better than what it is using just mathematics. It is that small percentage that I can't give an exact amount on, only that it's there. Of course it's not a breathtaking amount by any means.

              I'm still waiting for a jackpot winner to show up wearing a LP cap or/and a LP shirt.   With over a 100,000 members who follow the games and play them consistently using systems, QPs, dreams and what ever else can be thought up, you would think it would have happened by now.

              I know some games are easier to win than others but it's not always the ones with the smallest number pools.  I play MegaMillions, PowerBall and Ohio Classic which is a 649 game.  While I got my biggest win (5/6) ever playing Ohio Super Lotto Plus (6/49+1) back in 2002, my largest loss percents lately have been playing OCL which may be because MM and PB have better overall odds of winning something than OCL.  When I read about winners on the Ohio website, I see a lot more Ohioans who have either won PB/MM $200K/$250K or a MM/PB jackpot than have won a OCL jackpot and  OCL odds of winning a jackpot are 1:14M and MM and PB are 1:175M-195M.

               * you don't need to buy more tickets, just buy a winning ticket *

                It's probably already happened by now...perhaps several times. I'd like to see an LP winner as well, however I don't think we ever will. Seems to me that LP members are smarter than the average Joe who buys a quickpick at the liquor store after work. From all that I've read in the forums, it seems to me that most LP members are more likely to be quiet about winning a JP and NOT announce they've won the big one.

                So, I am sure LP has already had it's share of JP winners, it's just that we'll never know it.
