If one was to go out in buy 1000 tickets...what would be the best way to do it? Like I am not sure how it works with such a large buy...the most tickets I ever bought was like 20. :lol: These would all be quick pick and the other thing is they are for the $0.25 bet.

Thanks. :)

$1,000,000

    Quality over Quantity!

     

    I know a pool in CA that buys so many tickets the terminal runs out of paper and sometimes ink and they have yet to win as much as 5+0 in Superlotto which has far better odds than the multi state games.

      I am thinking about the smaller "cash" games where you can bet $0.25, $0.50 or $1. Just the amount of tickets is more than I have bought in the past. Do I fill out one sheet and let them run it a bunch of times since it is QP?

        If you're playing a set number of QPs just tell the cashier how much you want to purchase. In the case where you are playing multiple games, I would suggest to lay it on the clerk one at a time. They seem to get confused very easily.

          It would be just the one bet of $0.25...but yeah they do get confused...I usually get 3 tickets for one game and they always give me 2. Ugh. 

          I am also wondering if it would be better to go to different locations...I imagine getting a large amount of tickets would take up too much time at one location for the clerk.

              Great point! A few have them have been known to try passing 'Go' with your $200. Watch out for that especially when redeeming your wins.

                If you are going to buy 1,000 tickets, I would say don't use QP since QP often contains too many duplicate numbers. Pick your own numbers while minimizing duplicate numbers. Spread them out so that the number of duplicate numbers are spread equally across 1,000 tickets.

                  I was thinking about picking my own numbers and then I was thinking all kinds of stuff and decided that not worrying about the numbers would be better for my head. LOL. It will be a while before I do this so I might actually pick the numbers...but I was just gonna be lazy QP so I am not worried about systems and wheels. Ugh.

                  And yes I will probably ask the clerk about it...but thought some here who have had experience with buy lots O' numbers could offer advice. :)

                    I bought 100 QP for Fantasy 5. 1 ticket won 19 dollars (3 out of 5). 16 tickets won free replay (2 out of 5). The rest are losers.

                    The odds of having 3 out of 5 correct are 1 in 103.

                          While I don't know the answer to your question, at the very least I'd wait to play that many lines until it's obvious an even or odd sum is due, which alone increases your odds by 50%.
