Are QPs randomly generated numbers?

One thing to keep in mind regarding both PB and MM's quick picks...with sooooooo many combinations involved, any quick pick has just as good of a chance as any self-pick. I see people getting bent out of shape due their tickets having repeating numbers and/or pairs of numbers. Guess what? That "bad combination" per se  is in there just like anything else and can be won on just the rest of the numbers/combinations.

The same thing(s) that people lose with on the last draw can and will win on the next one. In my opinion, there is no bad set of numbers in either of these games. In fact, I remember a jackpot being won on a set of numbers that ended up being in succession when they posted the numbers. It was kinda like 13-14-15-16-24 just for reference's sake...and a player won!!

With pre-tests combined with a (1) of (56) set, I refuse to strain my brain. But, I honestly respect and admire those that choose the challenge of trying to corner the winning numbers.

Small games, frequent wins, and regular payouts 'cause.....

    could'nt agree more, w/ so many tix.being sold it's quite possible that the #s i draw on a QP could very well be your selfpick #s

    and vice-versa.

      Now your not even telling the truth LL. Please at least try to be honest...........   What?

      With self picks you not only have the option of strategy and method, you also have the option of using the vast array of systems available here at LP. There are wheels and abbreviated wheels and other useful systems.

      A simple key number wheel can reduce 252 combinations down to 25........

        On my thread we used a 4 if 4 wheel and reduced 98,280 combinations down to 4931 and still retained the winning 5+1 combination.............. That's a reduction of almost 95% of the combinations using a system.

        Systems work....... They produce BETTER ODDS.......   Cool

          That could be true hay if your buying one or two tix and Im buying one or two tix..........

          But it simply is NOT true for if Im playing a wheel, especially a large wheel.

            My biggest win ever (200K on PB), was on a humble QP.

            Totally agree with you L.L., QP's are a God send to many of us non-system schmucks.   Jester

            A QP has just as good a chance, if not better, than a self-pick of hitting the Mother-Load.

              That's true for the lowly masses who buy a small number of tickets. How many tickets did you purchase??

                  I have always played Powerball the same way. Two tickets every drawing, one self-pick, one QP.  That works out to 104 tickets per year.

                  At the time I won, the tickets were only $1. My total investment for those two tickets was $2.

                    Great, you just validated my point....... And excellent work btw.

                    So if I decided I was going to spend up to $5k Tue. night on MM would you suggest a wheel or QPs??
