When there are almost 200 Million combinations to choose from,

Please just spend no more than 20 bucks for 10 tickets 70% QP

30% your own numbers

 

You just have to be lucky that's it, don't go hungry trying to win

      First of all, I have to state that I am not a fan of Quick Picks.  With that being said; I believe you also have to look at combinations & patterns that are found within the game itself -  This is the key.  Case in Point - See my Group #1 below.

      Here is My Group #1 for the Powerball Game.

       *************       

      In every single Jackpot Game, there are certain number combinations that come in more often than others.  The trick is finding these combinations.  You cannot improve the odds of winning a game but you can improve your chances of winning.  Be Smart, Play Smart.

      Good Luck & Best Wishes To ALL................................................

              No I didn't win as this is not one of my combinations that I play.  I play responsible & only play 20 lines which I consider my best possible chances of winning.  Therefore; I do not play all the top combinations as that would not be realistic.  I just play the Cream of the Crop.  And, when I win; I will let you know..............

              P.S.  My goal is not to win the Jackpot Prize - I'm just shooting for 5 of 5.   I will take the million & run with it.

                  I've never understood the logic behind players spending hundreds of dollars on tickets. When I was growing up, my mother use to tell me that she only bought one ticket per drawing, and her reasoning was that her one ticket has just as much a chance to win then the person who bought a hundred. As I got older, I now understand what she meant. With the odds for powerball at 1 and 175 million and Mega Millions being the same, if people really thought about the impossible odds of winning, they would not spend no more then $10 to $20 playing for a jackpot if that.

                  To buy one million tickets would only be buying up 1% of the combinations. Buying 500,000 tickets is half of one percent of the possible combinations. That is why I only limit my buys to five dollars for mega millions and ten dollars for powerball, and I only play them when the jackpots get high enough to be worth playing. Playing to win is like trying to shoot flying gease blind folded. Even with that said, I still play, because "you never know how insane luck may strike"

                      This is exactly why I keep track of every ticket I purchase. Several years ago I was a "frequent" player, kept track of all the tickets I purchased in a year and guess what...added up to $1,000! People think it's better to only buy a few at a time, but there really isn't a difference in the cost between playing $5-10 every drawing for a year or playing $500 in just one. Now those who play $500 in several drawings are just plain crazy Clown

                      If the chances of winning the jackpot are so slim, why play when the jackpot is so small? Your chances never change, but the potential payoff does.
                      If a crystal ball showed you the future of the rest of your life, and in that future you will never win a jackpot, would you still play?
