Ronnie-

Thought you wanted to play against QP's?

I do, and that offer is still open.......

The "One in 39" is a challenge we played earlier this year and it was kinda popular so its time to start another round. Anyone can post 28+1 and keep them all the way through or change them at any time.

    Okay.

    Well I'm new to this. So fill me in. How many QP's do I purchase per draw for this QP vs your self picks challenge?

      Did you read the challenge completely?   Can you generate 98,280 different random or QP combinations for 40 different drawings, post them and check them for any match5 after each drawing? 

      Posting 28 numbers with the 5 winning numbers among them and assuming had you wheeled those 28 numbers you would have had 98,280 combinations and one of them would have the 5 winning numbers is a lot easier but it doesn't accomplishes the task.

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

        4 QPs against each self-pick, because that's how bad QPs are............

                RJOh, is correct............ This is the QP challenge............

                I looked back and read more.. Now I understand. I definitely don't want any part of 98 + thousand QP's. Ha ! My initial understanding was on a much smaller scale. Something like 20-40 lines per draw 1vs1 self pick vs quick pick. Ya know, something an average person may purchase. To prove whether quick picks or self picks really matter on this size scale.

                I mean yeah, if I was going to spend a lot of money and take a shotgun approach I'd use a system.

                Id be up for a QP vs self pick challenge, 1 ticket vs 1 ticket, say 20-40 lines per draw? I'll take that crappy quick pick lines and buy/post them per draw. I'd be game for something like that.

                  As long as your the one buying the stinky QPs my friend....... Go for it. I post all the lines I play every single draw, and then I post the actual tickets just for fun. Tonight I have 47 lines using a keyed 4 if 4 wheel.

                      Lots of people around here believe QPs have equal odds with self picks, no matter how many lines you play. Just to let you know.......

                        Now you know why $500 was mentioned in the challenge, it's involve a lot of time.  If anyone is willing to spend the time running such a simulation, there is a LP feature available that allows members to print out a full wheel  for any game.

                          It seemed effortless for mediabrat who played almost twice as many QP lines and posted detailed prize results for both MM and PB every draw.

                              Yeah, I'll take the bullet and buy the crap QP's! Heck, I've played a lot of different methods and haven't come up with anything anyways! Surely this couldn't hurt! Ha ha!

                              Ill purchase 47 QP's vs your 47 self picks. I know you believe one self pick is worth 4 QP's(or something like that?).. But for the sake of a challenge I'm going to play 1 ticket vs 1 ticket.

                              Fair enough?
