Stats on jackpots hit with QP's compared to chosen numbers? I tried asking this in another thread but didn't get an answer. I've also tried googling but no luck.

Scratchies for the win!

    Try the Q&A section of the PB website.  That question is often answered in the Q&A section of other lottery websites too.

      The MM or PB FAQ page.

      It says something like "70% of tickets sales are quick picks and 70% of jackpot winners are quick picks, perhaps that's just a coincidence."

      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.

        the problem with qp stats, is that it is deceptive.

         

        with no way to tell if it is QP1 to QP5 

         

        if you pick two correct numbers and then hit the jackpot with the remaining numbers QP...the statistics will say you played a qp...

        which is not entirely true.

        Ponder

        also the MM and PB home page could just be lying...

        you would have to file under freedom of information act for true statistics to have any legal precedence.

          LottoBoner,

          Not every state has mix and match quick picks. In some if you mark quick pick the terminal pickls all the numbers.

          Every MM or PB ticket I've seen in several different states is like that.
