      I wonder if they consider the odds of being involved a traffic accident before leaving their homes or a mouse taking a bite out of their Big Mac bun.

      Yeah, so if overcoming the odds is much a bad idea..... My only alternative is, give up and quit????

          Ya know Ronnie, it's funny I was thinking that same thing this morning. Now I don't wander over to the P3 forum very much, but I was thinking this morning about all those systems and strategies that are posted almost daily, and nobody seems to bother those folks.

          Almost makes me want to start playing P3....... I said almost! LOL.

          Here you go RC!

          Have fun over there.

            That's because the thought of someone spending $5-$10 and winning $50-$250 doesn't bother some folks as much as the thought of someone spending $5-$10 and winning over $200M  or an annuity that pays $2M-$4M over 30 years.

            Some folks just hate the idea of a lucky lottery player winning so much money for so little work.

            Twenty years ago those folks convinced Ohio to had a rule limiting the amount one lottery ticket could win to $20M which was eliminated after six months because players stopped playing Super Lotto and started going out of state to play PowerBall and Big Game.  Ohio later added both games to its list of games so players didn't have to travel out of state to play them.

                RJOh,

                "Some folks just hate the idea of a lucky lottery player winning so much money for so little work."

                And how many people do you know who are in this category?  I don't know one.  Do you think there might have been another reason "those folks" advocated for smaller jackpots?

                Besides, what does this have to do with whether certain number combinations have better odds than others?

                  If you didn't think RJ's remarks were relevant, why did you ask two follow-up questions?

                  And if you don't believe a 4 if 4 of 28 number wheel will get better results than $5000 purchased QPs, post the your QPs before the drawing so we can compare your results with Ronnie's.

                    I swear I don't understand why you folks are so concerned about 'odds' when there is little if anything anyone can do about them. They are what they are.

                    The balls are 'objects' being blown around or otherwise mixed in an enclosed vessel with an escape hatch. No outside force can affect which objects will escape and become the winning numbers.
                    Anyone with any sense at all knows that the values on the objects are not added, subtracted, divided, or multiplied in any way shape or form.
                    Also, if you have a fist full of lottery tickets you have more opportunities to win than someone who has only one ticket, although both can hit the jackpot with a single combination.
                    So what does it matter?
                    Construct as many self picks as you can afford and hope you made the right choices. Or, buy as many Quick Picks as your budget will support and hope you get a winner.

                            What do you mean by "better results?"

                            It's absurd to think one day's results comparing a virtual handful of tickets

                            in a game with 175Million potential outcomes would prove ANYTHING!

                            Jimjwright showed you what to expect after quite a few more draws.
