Just curious what method most people use? Does it really matter with the odds so high?  What percentage of JP's are won with QP?

    Ever since I started playing the lottery again last month, I only average one play per draw in the three jackpot lotteries I play, so I use QP's all the time.

      I had a bet both ways, with 3 QPs, and 3 of my own numbers. That's not my usual M.O.  I decided to go crazy for this draw.

        80% QP

          I do better self-pick and it is my only method.  Most people buy QPs.  I'd say 90% of JP winners used QPs.

            For me a combination QP and self pick.  99% QP vs self pick for me personally.  I think like 75% of jackpots are won with QP because, not coincidentally enough 75% of all tickets sold are QP.

                    How do you know you do better with self-pick if it's your only method?

                        In my honest opinion, to even begin to even think about combining combinations for a win in a game with (75) numbers is completely absurd. Disclaimer: if you have been playing the same set of numbers for ever, and have never adjusted them, then stay with that because they're better. Why? Because every time they have a draw, a different pice of the puzzle is pulled and added to to the process.

                        Now that the size of the puzzle has increased by (19) pieces, those same combos have now increased.

                         

                        L.L.

                        Small games, frequent wins, and regular payouts 'cause.....

                        There are seven days in the week...'Someday' isn't one of them.
