Are there any QP players that will compete with me using 98.280 lines per draw??

I will offer a $500. reward to anyone who can beat me over 40 draws..........

What I'm looking for is a head to head competition between self picks and computer generated QPs.

            Just for clarification.... My number selections are NOT super duper secret, you may share them at anytime with anyone you like, and if you play my numbers and win you are welcome to keep all the money. Thanks.

                What I'm looking for is a head to head competition between self picks and computer generated QPs.

                Your odds would be slightly better, only because I have the chance of certain combos being picked more than once.  Of course, that being the case, the overall expected return is the same, b/c I could hit the same 5/5 twice or more in those rare instances.

                 

                BTW, I do pick my own numbers when I play.  That's only because I think it's more fun, and because I can slightly raise expected value by picking combos that are less likely to be picked by other players (using a larger amount numbers higher than 31, b/c many self pick players use dates for their picks.)

                 

                As for their odds of being drawn, I think a QP is just the same as any self pick.  The difference with buying large amounts of QPs is there, but negligible unless you really started buying millions....

                 

                I figured it'd be easy if I was able to use a set of RNGed numbers, the same amount you were picking for 2 reasons...

                 

                1) I'm not influencing the decision, except to insure that I don't have the same set of numbers twice.

                2) I wouldn't have to go through much trouble to do this.  I've got other things I'm far more focused on (working on poker tournament play for an upcoming trip - and I'm taking a Winter class that I know I'm going to have trouble with)

                 

                If you don't want that challenge, it's fine.  If nobody else takes you up, you can still run the test yourself.

                  I also don't see using wheels as worthless.  They don't change your expected return, but manipulate the odds of having overlapping prizes, changing the variance.

                   

                  Like I said before, I play for fun.  Every once in a while there's a high jackpot I'm willing to put 10 bucks on.  That's when I pick my own numbers and use a wheel.  Not because it changes my odds of winning, but b/c it's more fun and can slightly help my EV, by picking combos less picked by self pick players.

                    Interesting that in all your dissertations you never mention the power of prediction and intuition.......

                    Even though you have personal experience with its power to produce a desired winning ticket..........

                    I supppose you think that todays 200k+ predictions on the prediction boards are all a waste of time.?

                      Pretty much.  If you have fun with it that's one thing.  If you really think it's helping your odds that's another.  All actual proof, by any acedemic standards, says otherwise.  I'm pretty sure they've done studies on that - human intution and it's effect on randomness.  There are some slight correlations that go at most a fraction of a second in time.  But as far as for purposes of the Lottery, there is no provable effect of inuition on results.  There is no realistically usuable power of prediction and intuition.  The human mind tries to find patterns and is very biased.  We see patterns because it makes in many ways it makes our lives easier.  But we also see patterns where none exist purposefully.

                        In other words I don't mention such things because they don't exist.  There's never been proof for such things, and you, and others like you insist on their existance with no logic or sound knowledge of how or why it works (which I don't believe it does.)

                         

                        So why should I believe in something that not only hasn't been proven, but has been proven wrong by simple mathemetics and rigourous testing?  Unless you have significant proof of your beliefs, nobody who is thinking rationally should believe your claims.  It's like me saying that I can jump 15 feet high without any aid.  Nobody rational would believe me, especially if I had no proof.
