I've read if you check the box for x amount of multi-draws and choose to QP that every following draw will have the original QP numbers. Is there any way to get the next 4 draws with different QP numbers in each one?

I'm taking the risk and switching away from my personal picks on PB since I have the feeling I'm supposed to be switching it up and would like to continue being able to get half a months worth of draws out of the way in one day, but would also like different QPs each draw.

      Ya I've looked at numerous other state lottery sites and have found nothing mentioning the possibility. I even ended up at a other countries' sites and found nothing mentioning the ability to do it.

      I think the only hope would be a cashier who knows their way around the lottery terminal. I would think it would be mentioned on here somewhere though if it was possible, so I may just have to go back to buying twice a week. They really should change payslips to allow this.

        I think for some reason, software maybe ? they can't skip ahead of a drawing.

        If i stopped at the store on my way home today and told the clerk i wanted to skip tonight's PIC6,

        and just get a ticket for the coming thurs. they could'nt do that either.

          You're looking for a "future bet" option that gives you a specific date and you might check if that is available, but you won't find it on a playslip.

            I've had that thought before, skipping a draw. It's usually when that nights drawing is a rollover and since I'm already out I'd like to get the tickets out of the way but can't.

            Oh well, I guess I likely have my answer... thanks. I guess I'll end up choosing how I play based on how I'm feeling whatever day I get tickets.

             

            ^Thanks Stack, I'll check that out later. I'm currently in the process of being distracted by the Kings/Devils game/pregame.

                Yeah, I'm the same way. I'd LOVE to buy my lottery tickets all at once so I don't forget. However, I want to have different numbers each time. Unfortunately, not possible to my knowledge.

                  ttech10,

                  I don't think different multi-draw QPs can be played for more than one set of numbers (per Game box, Game A, B, etc...) so far. Not in Illinois, anyway.

                  I'm thinking if it is possible anywhere it might be one of the states that has "mix and match" your numbers and QPs - if you're playing a Pick 5 for example, and you mark two numbers the lottery 'puter picks the other three.

                  Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                  Lep

                  There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                    I think that some states will let you play any particular drawing up to some period in advance. You can have numbers selected on a bet slip or just mark the QP box, but the clerk has to input the  drawing dates on the terminal.

                    It would be easy enough for the terminal software to allow a different set of numbers for each advance drawing, but it would require another choice on the betslip. I don't see any logical reason that somebody would be willing to use random numbers for one draw and think they should play different random numbers for subsequent drawings.  I'm guessing the people making decisions for the lotteries don't see a reason to bother, either.

                      For one, you don't have a chance to get attached to the set of numbers if they're just for one draw.  If I check the same set for several draws, I have them memorized.  Then it can be hard to let them go without thinking the minute you quit playing them they will come up.

                        If you could buy two draws at one time with different line of numbers on each draw.. wouldn't you be pissed if the set of numbers were drawn on the wrong night?   I would..

                        I buy my line for advance plays.   Same numbersSun Smiley

                            You would have to buy single line multi draws, or choose different nums. I stopped multi-draws just incase someone wins.
