I've seen some people trying to say quick picks are some how rigged, or win "less" then self picks.

 

How can you believe that?

 

Why would they even rig something they're already pulling millions in with?

 

Let's say you wanted to rig quick picks, how would you do it? Only have 50% of the numbers come up? Well all numbers have an equal chance of coming up in the draw so they might make winners 50% more likely to win depending on which numbers come up. 

 

Let me know what you guys think and any self research you've done. I'm trying to convince myself I could pick better numbers then the quick picks but I just don't think I can. Random generation will always be better because that's how numbers are drawn, through random generation, not by some person trying to pick random "winning" numbers.

    I would'nt say rigged, but something is fishy. I'm pretty sure the 3 winners were QP's, and almost all the second place ones too. Guess it was the right time for that combo to hit.

      oh im sure the lotteries dont actually care that this does or doesnt  happen, they just care that people dont know about it happening.

          They're offering people who got dupes (or is that "got duped"? Wink) to exchange those tickets for replacement tickets.

              What do you call a partial quick pick, or when the machine gives more than 3 repeated numbers on your QP ticket.?

                Pick 3 is rigged. The payout for 1:1000 should be 1000:1.

                    That will never happen to me, since I only buy one ticket per draw.  However, it would be funny if I got ten identical quick picks for Mega Millions or Powerball, and they actually drew all five white balls, giving me a cool $2.5 million or $10 million before taxes!

                      WOW - fascinating stories in BOTH links.  This really does give pause to the idea that qp's are random...  if THIS s/w 'glitch' how many other potential glitches are there that havent yet been discovered?

                        but was your 1 line QP a copy of the last guys numbers before you ? and how many coppies of that same 1 line QP did the machine spit out?

                          More people buy QPs that Self picks.  About 80%, and I'd imagine that when Jackpots get huge, and people are buying 100s of tickets (not uncommon in NYC and the areas surrounding - all they way out to cental NJ) are not likely to be picking every one of those lines.  They are much more likely to just ask for 100 QPs.

                            Anything can easily be rigged if it comes from a computer.

                            Tennessee has been caught at it.

                            Anyone playing doubles on Pick3 had no chance of winning for weeks.

                            The computer that gave the winning numbers was programmed not to let doubles win.

                            They assured us that it was a mistake though (after they were caught) and it will never happen again.

                            So we all have total confidence in the computers now!   Oogle
