If you get a quick pick with all even, or odd numbers.also if you get only one odd or even number you can bet you won't get 5+0 or 6+0.

    Well that depends on the game. Mega Millions, as an example, had quite a few of them come up in the drawing this year: 6 evens, 6 odds, 5/1 and 1/5. PB had its share as well, but not as many as MM. Those combos come few times and far between and I for one wouldn't deliberately play them.

     

    Another almost guaranteed loser is the combo where the PB or MB is a number that finds itself among the white balls

     

    E.g. 1, 12, 14 36, 45 14

     

    This is yet another reason I am such a strong advocate for self picks. You can't dictate to the lottery terminal.

      No numbers are losers before a drawing, even 1-2-3-4-5 (6).

      Looking at the first page of the 'Previous Results' on MM I saw this all even draw that someone won.
      Friday, November 02, 2012 --- 04 · 18 · 22 · 38 · 44 + 24

       

      And all these where all but one were even. Granted only one was all even on the first 5.
      Tuesday, November 13, 2012 --- 06 · 12 · 31 · 46 · 56 + 34
      Friday, October 26, 2012 04 · 15 · 24 · 36 · 40 + 44
      Friday, October 19, 2012 --- 14 · 34 · 36 · 48 · 53 + 42
      Friday, October 12, 2012 --- 06 · 10 · 24 · 26 · 42 + 15
      Friday, September 28, 2012 --- 06 · 08 · 14 · 43 · 56 + 28

       

      It's actually funny. The times I've looked at a QP and thought "well those are terrible numbers" I've won more than when I thought "I like the way these look".

       

      Also, a number in the first set coming up as the last number isn't that rare either. This was looking at the first two pages on the MM list.

      Friday, December 14, 2012 -- 11 · 28 · 33 · 41 · 43 + 41 -- $35 Million -- Won
      Tuesday, October 23, 2012 -- 01 · 17 · 42 · 46 · 55 + 01 -- $13 Million
      Tuesday, September 18, 2012 -- 05 · 09 · 22 · 36 · 49 + 36 -- $15 Million -- Won
      Tuesday, September 11, 2012 -- 05 · 11 · 20 · 33 · 36 + 11 -- $120 Million -- Won
      Tuesday, September 04, 2012 -- 16 · 32 · 39 · 41 · 53 + 16 -- $93 Million
      Friday, August 24, 2012 -- 25 · 34 · 45 · 46 · 49 + 34 -- $65 Million
      Friday, August 17, 2012 -- 08 · 20 · 24 · 35 · 56 + 24 -- $45 Million
      Friday, August 03, 2012 -- 02 · 10 · 13 · 38 · 46 + 02 -- $13 Million
      Tuesday, July 24, 2012 -- 05 · 09 · 38 · 46 · 51 + 05 -- $45 Million
      Friday, June 29, 2012 -- 28 · 34 · 39 · 45 · 53 + 34 -- $75 Million

      It's actually interesting how many times it came up in the run up to the $120m win. It ended with that combination and pretty much started with one.

        I assume all lottery tickets are loser regardless of the numbers on them and I'm right 98% of the time.  Now if only I could pick winners with the same percent of accuracy I could be rich.

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

          I'd go with the odds because 31 out of every 32 QPs are losers.

            True a but very unlikely. View my reply to recent post. Click me and click my " Recent Posts" for explanation.

              Why is it unlikely?

              I bet the next 5+1 you personally pick is just as unlikely to show. I'll bet you 5 thousand dollars.

              Every string has the EXACT same chance as showing  as any other string of numbers.

              How likely is it that 5-17-29-36-37-(10) will show in the next draw, or the next 3 million draws? I'll answer, just as likely as 1-2-3-4-5-(6).

                I'm just expressing my personal opinion but from personal experience I know that I have  come closer to winning ( i know , it only counts in horse shoes ) many times and won more residual prizes with numbers like 5-17-29-36-37- (10) , which coincidentally is one of the most drawn pattern of numbers I found to be drawn in the Canadian LOTTO 649 than  1-2-3-4-5-(6), ( all single digits) which I found never to have happened in the last 3021 draws.

                I just think if I can come close enough times, eventually I may be luckier, compared with a set of numbers that almost never comes close to happening, and at least I get more of a rush with my money,

                I am in no way any kind of number expert, I just look at the pictures.

                  loser  - someone or something that loses something.

                  looser - something that is more loose than something else.

                  Sorry, that's been stuck in my craw for a while now.

                    If I bought a quick pick and the numbers were 1-2-3-4-5-(6) I wouldn't say "no way" and hand it over to the guy behind me in line.

                      fair enough on a quick pick, but tell the truth, Have you or would you actually pick those numbers to play?

                          That's fine with residual prizes, but the topic you brought up is about all of the numbers coming together. Each winning JP winning numbers have the same chance, is all I'm saying.

                          1234 in P-4 has the same exact chance as 8761 to show.
