So, it sounds to me as if this very, very fortunate lady played within her budget and stayed with the same numbers based on sentiments within her life. Key words, SAME NUMBERS. Had she played different numbers and/or Quick Picks, she would've missed her moment in time. Consistency does, in fact, pay off as I've said here many times. With the small games, the wins come much faster due to a lot less numbers. But, one has to be PATIENT and CONSISTENT.

Granted, Quick Picks definitely do win. This is another one of those cases, though, where sticking to one's guns get's the big kill!! This is why if I play QP's and they don't hit, and, I forget to play next time, I never look at them...they get tossed for this very reason. If they hit, I'd just rather not know 'cause all it can do at that point is sting really, really bad for the rest of my life. Comments?

    I predict we will see at least one of Thrifty's infamous copy-and-paste posts in this thread, specificially the one in which he copies the FAQ from the Powerball web site which states that about 70% of tickets played are QPs and about 70% of winners are QPs.

    Seriously, though, I play both types.  I have a couple sets of my own numbers that I play all the time, but I also get Quick Picks.

      This is cool that predictors on this site are being predicted!   Thumbs Up

              'ridge, whatever happened to rosie? I'm asking you because I know y'all were pretty tight. And then there's your other friend who hung out with you and rosie which I haven't seen any posts from. Are they both okay to your knowledge?

                our lotto commish decided to change the jackpot prize for mon/wed from a jackpot to a guaranteed prize of $1 mill for ea of the 1st 2 winners. ie if 1 person wins, they get 1 mill, and if 2 win they get 1 mill and if 3 win they get to share 2 mill. all good, but before it was 1 mill and it jack potted if it didnt get won and regularly went upto $5 mill , sometimes being won by 1 person . o there was the tragic case of 60 odd people winning 1st prize tho.

                 

                any my reason for the long explanation is that i can see playing the same numbers twice  is actually a good idea for this games set up. as the extra ticket gives you that extra $1 mill, or 2 shares of the 2 mill if you have to split. most games there is no point in playing the same 6 numbers, as the prize pool is the same, but this place has made it that there is a valid reason to do it.

                 

                anyhow i read this women's story and thought about my local lotto game and if i should bother.,  i know the answer is no, as i cant hit even 5 numbers yet so why and try to win  a repeat  6 win. my money would be better wated covering more numbers.  still if  was certain of my numbers, or had ilde cash lol, @ idle cash, its an option.
