I guess Ira Curry disproved that it takes a single quick pick from all combinations sold.

It will be interesting though to see if the next jackpot goes this high.

    How many tickets do you need to win the jackpot? 1

    I also have 1 quick pick ticket.

    I was wrong about the quick pick because the winning numbers were so low. But I was right about 1 ticket.

      That's the thing with draws though, there are numerous ones that have all low numbers. Just because numbers go so high doesn't mean any of the winning numbers will go up that high.

      I think more than anything it showed anyone can win any draw. It's also MegaMillion's ideal win with the new matrix. $1 wager, personal picks and low numbers.

        The California winner won with a quick pick.

        Tran says he and his family visit San Jose because there is a large Vietnamese community there, plus they can eat and shop. Tran said he bought five quick pick tickets at Jenny's Gift & Kids Wear, a store tucked away in a Tully Road strip mall.

          The other winner had a single personal pick, though, plus it looks like last nights drawing had a winner at only 5 draws in.

          So, it appears MegaMillions can still be won by any person, with any play style and at any time.

            Mega Millions Jackpot Winner!  There was one $61 million jackpot winner from Tennessee in the Friday, January 03, 2014 Mega Millions drawing.  I bet it was a quick pick.

              It doesn't matter if it is or not. 95% of plays are QP so of course over 95% of wins will be QP. Point is, since we've already had a winner with personal picks in the new matrix (the very first win), is that it doesn't take a large portion of the population to buy in.

              Despite the new matrix, people are winning the same ways people won before the change.

                Mega Millions will continue to roll until 1 lucky person buys the right quick pick. The new matrix was designed for no one to win until the jackpot gets so high and everyone buys in. Which could result in all possible combinations being sold. Can you imagine the resentment and backlash against MUSL and the winner.

                I thought I understood that the woman who shared the $600 million plus jackpot on Dec. 17 played and won with a ticket of her numbers of children's ages and birthdays.

                    Since they raised the bar... I only play one or two dollars.. no megaplier previously but may be a consideration only since the gold ball is only 1-15 now.. or I might consider the megaplier, if I were to pick the gold ball myself in anticipation what I were to think might come in.

                    I think one of the other posters is right.. with odds now 250M plus to 1.. your odds of hitting might be best served to an easy pic... since I believe even if you did win with your own numbers, say birthdays and anniversaries, it would probably be due to merely luck of the draw not that someone had a program to strategize such odds.  If that were the case alot more people would probably be winning! LOL

                    But, like my Dad always says.. can't win if you don't play.
