What about the winners who have won using quick picks?

not very good idea. it's better odds to keep up with your own numbers. you wont regret the day you hit a jackpot.

How do your own numbers give you better odds when most jackpots have been won by Quick Picks?

I've always been curious about this view so I decided to do a little research of my own. Basically, I started tracking the success of my own Lotto playing.  Basically, I play 2 sets of numbers for every drawing, one set of hand picked numbers and one quick pick. Louisiana Lotto is 6/40, minimum match of 3 balls to win a prize.

Out of 33 drawings so far, here is what I've found.
The self picked set of numbers has matched on average 0.75 balls per drawing, with a median of 1, and a mode of 0. None of these have won any money yet.

The quick picks have matched 0.9375 balls per drawing, with a median of 1, and a mode of 0, with one drawing matching 3 balls, for a win of \$3.00, for an average win of \$0.09 per drawing.

Not sure what to make of this, if anything, considering a majority of both the self picked and random quick picks have mostly matched 0 balls.

"do not play quick picks."

Do not go on television shows with a cheap, ratty, dumpy lookin' suit from The Salvation Army Thrift Shop that is three sizes too big for you and tell a lady who won multi, multi-millions with a Quick Pick not to play Quick Picks.

do not play set of numbers that already have been drawn. look for set of numbers that never been drawn before. good luck in picking your own set soon or later they can hit.

yes, it is true that I won "seven times" the lottery not playing quick picks. now you know the chances of winning more times if you do not play quick picks.
