Easy losing is definitely the only way to go.

Not only shouldn't you have to put a lot of effort into losing but you shouldn't have to spend a lot either.

    if they paid out for losing, we'd all be winners!

    2014 = -1016; 2015= -1409; 2016  = -1171; 2017 = ?  TOT =  -3596

    keno historic = -2291 ; 2015= -603; 2016= -424; 2017 = ? TOT = - 3318

          Jack Whittaker won $315 million, and is still the biggest all time loser.

          Funny thing is, the biggest losers on TV, are the biggest winners.   LOL

            Why don't we change the rules for a while.

            All losers are winners, all winners are losers.

            Kind of a spin on that new Texas game "All or Nothing"

              The Quick Picks are random numbers generated by the lottery terminal itself.  They are not drawn from a master list of numbers until the list is exhausted.

              However, my feeling is that the random number generators built into lottery terminals tend to be pretty poor, very basic psuedo-random number generators.  They are fine for last-minute ticket buys, but if you have the time and you still want random numbers, I would recommend using Lottery Post's Quick Picks Generator, which uses a much better random number generator than you can find elsewhere.

              In November 2010 I was playing around with the Quick Pick Generator on USA Mega and I wrote down 5 lines of quick picks with all high numbers and consecutives, but I did not play them. That night the drawing was:

              Wednesday, November 03, 2010  34 · 38 · 39 · 45 · 50    + 33 

                 $104 Million

               

              I was so scared to look at the paper I wrote the quick picks on because I knew that high number combination looked familiar and what if it is all 6 numbers, what if it is 5 numbers for $1 million how will I be able to moved on knowing I had wrote them down but did not play them. When I checked the numbers matched 4+1 for $10,000. I was relieved it was not all 6 numbers. You can get over missing $10,000, but I am not sure you get over losing $104 million dollar jackpot. I learned my lesson from that experience to never use the QP generator unless I am going to play the numbers. That is the closest I ever came to big money in the Powerball and I never even played the numbers

                Had those numbers came up for the jackpot, would you have continued trying other QP's?

                    No! and I don't know why I even buy quick picks from the store anyway. I never win anything with them and I like to see what the QP generator give me and then I put it on the playslip. I like to choose combinations with high numbers and consecutive numbers. So I do agree with Todd about the LP/USA Mega generator produce better random numbers.

                      Good luck with any of your future LP generated QP's.

                      If you win anything worth mentioning, let us know.

                      Thanks!

                        The good thing about the LP QPs is that you can see them BEFORE you buy them.

                        This is NOT an option with store bought QPs.

                        RJOh uses a method of looking at combinations and choosing the ones he wants to play, and it sounds like you may want to try the same, I think its a excellent idea.

                          Terrific point Mr. 5+1!

                          I wonder how many stores would allow your to preview a QP before buying? Perhaps only a handful of inexperienced clerks.

                          You usually want to see your wife or husband at least once before marrying, so why shouldn't you see your QP number before playing.  LOL

                            That's right Master  mcginnin56, a QP player and his ticket could be a match made in heaven if only there was a courting process for them to get to know each other........ Excellent point indeed.........
