I'm beginning to think that picking my own numbers is the way to go as opposed to QP's

Hi again,

I had posted about my bad luck with QP's recently. Mentioned that I had 2 lines with 3 numbers in a row on a QP for Mass Cash. Well last Wed. for the Powerball drawing I switched things up. I usually only by 1 line for MM and PB (also always play the Multiplier and Powerplay). Anyway I decided to buy 3 lines due to the big jackpot. This time after work I really took some time to pick my numbers and was so happy to get the powerball number (had 3 other numbers but they were not all on the same line). Well I cashed in my 12 dollars and picked my numbers again for last nights drawing. This time I bought 5 lines (only cost me 3 dollars since I cashed in my winnings). Again I got the powerball and had 3 numbers on different lines and the other two numbers I was off by one digit. The last time I even got the powerball number was over a year ago (and prior to this was always doing QP's). I'm sure many of you are probably laughing at me for getting excited over getting the Powerball for both last Wed. and last nights draw, but for me that's exciting. I'm really going to continue to try to pick my own numbers. It is more time consuming but I hope it brings me closer to getting a decent win (I'd be thilled to get anything).

I enjoy picking my own numbers, if It becomes a chore, then just take a rest for awhile, the lottery isn't going anywhere

    Ditto.

    Or as The Eagles remind us:

    Take it easy, take it easy

    Don't let the sound of your own wheels drive you crazy

    Lighten up while you still can

    Don't even try to understand

    Just find a place to make your stand

    And take it easy

                      I choose my own numbers and if I can afford it buy insta picks as well, that way I have an extra chance at winning..

                          One combination, but the right one?

                            Has anyone else noticed that quick picks are bunching numbers.  I.E. 44 47 48 or 23 25 29 or 52 53 54, etc. a high percentage of the time!   If you look at the winning powerball numbers you will notice they rarely display this senario.  However, the quick picks favor this setup a high percentage of the time.  I have been following this pattern for over a year, purchasing 5 to 20 tickets a drawing.  I know all numbers have an equal chance of winning, but patterns do develop and these don't necessarily mean winning patterns.  Since the powerball drawing is with balls the numbers are more separated, but with computers the quick pick numbers are more bunched.   Thus they rarely match up with how actual numbers are drawn.  Makes one wonder...Roll Eyes

                              Hi realtorjim,

                              That's why I started a previous post about the fact that I was getting bad numbers on many QP's. Was getting 10, 11, 12 or 21, 22, 23.  This was happening quite often on QP's. Was so frustrated that last week I started picking my own numbers and will continue to pick my own instead of playing QP's. At least when I pick my numbers I'm not usually picking 3 numbers right in a row. Also on my QP's many times I would get 3 numbers that were on the previous draw, so frustrating.
