never play quick picks

Both quick picks and self picked numbers have equal probability of winning. The only difference is quick picks are easier to do and less time consuming. It would take me less than 1 minute to go into a store and get 10 lines of tonight's PB. If I had to fill out a play slip for the same 10 lines then the process lasts double the time. Majority of people go for easier and faster options so quick picks are chosen more and therefore win more. It's not rocket science

From my own little study, I would agree, if only buying one ticket. I do think that if someone is going to buy many tickets, perhaps picking numbers is better. I say this because sometimes at work when the jackpots get high, we have an employee who runs a pool and buys many tickets, sometimes 20 or more. When I look through the copies, I see many of these tickets have the same numbers on them over and over, and some numbers in the matrix don't appear on any tickets. If buying multiple tickets, picking your own numbers will allow you to get more numbers in the matrix spread around to the tickets and increase the chances of matching numbers drawn. I think this can increase the chance of winning something, even if it's just a lower tier prize.

My curiosity lies as in how many computer generated quick picks are duplicated on any one drawing throughout the country ?  10-20-30 %  or more?

I like the idea of 1 by me and 1 by the QP method...

Sales of Lottery books declining, go on LP drum up new customers by telling them not to pick Quick picks. By your book.

I do believe you've opened a can of worms by coming on LP to sell your ideas...!

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.

Just curious if this is the *real* Richard Lustig or just someone pretending?

Can you list the 7 lottery jackpots you've won? I thought many were scratch games? (no quick picks involved)

Thanks

Duplicate combos will always be around with random numbers in drawings. But there is no set percentage, as the percentage of duplicates increases along with ticket sales. It could start out small, just a few percent. But then as the jackpot grows and sales increase, duplicates can approach 50% or more for really large jackpots.

Similar thing for quick picks. If you buy a bunch of quick pick lines, you're bound to have some duplicate numbers. But that does not mean your chances of winning or prize return is any worse than self picks with all unique numbers.

Very doubtful.

His first posts were strings of numbers for Pick 3.

Lustig doesn't play Pick 3 as far as I know.

Never heard him say "y'all" either.

do not play quick picks.

Well if it isn't the snake oil salesman we mentioned recently. Listen bud, if your system worked you'd be able to tell us how much you've spent on tickets to get those wins. That's pivotal in validating your claim. If you spend \$5 a month and rack up multiple wins that would be impressive. If you're spending \$50,000/month on tickets, then it's simply the law of probability and nothing to do with a 'formula' you supposedly created.

If your system worked, you should have had more wins by now. You've been touting that seven wins claim for the last 4 years. Did you hit a dry spell or what? If you can't win anything in 4 years then your system sucks.
