I have always had more luck with random numbers, however many of my friends swear by the quick pick at the counter. Do any of you feel that random numbers are better than quick pick? or am I completely wrong in this?

    Some people have luck with QP; some people do not and vice versa. Stick to the method that works for you. As Richard Lustig once said: Stick to you own numbers and never change them.

      OL:

      From 1998 2 2008 did "great" with QUICK-Trix (quick pick 2 those who don't know psyko). After 2008 things began changing  the lottery

      terminals. The Lottery started using cheaper (less quality) programs to quick pick your numbers at their point of purchase locations<<<<!

      Psyko thinks they cut the guts out of the program to cut down on pay outs without having to raise the price of tickets because, I was win'n

      lot more than losses. Also, used a lot of my trix when filling out the bet slips. Over a period of time could not find a retailer that had lottery

      terminal that didn't :

      (1) have at least 20% number repeats

      (2) consecutive numbers 10-11-12>>

      (3) rows of low or high 1-5-10-19-20

      (4) LOT's LUCK 2 "all" lottery PLAYER'$>>>>>>>>>2015 no matter how you pickum or playum>>>>>>>>>$$$$$$$$$$

        Heh. You've been reading my tickets! I get QPs at one store and they are exactly as you describe but worse.  I always get the number 2. Now, these are for superlotto but the PB/MM are not much better.

        Number 2!

        Number 2!

          Doesn't matter- The ping pong balls are just that, balls: they are not intelligent.  "*They" have no idea whether the winning numbers are QP's or NOT !!

                  The Lottery employees weigh the balls .   I do not know how often they do that.

                    I think it is luck for the most part.  So many white balls to guess.  A man bought a quick pick and played it for a number of years and it finally won.  That takes a lot of patience but it worked for him.   As long as you have a ticket you have a chance.  Good luck to you and all the LP players. Smile

                      I always buy quick picks. I used to play my own numbers but I didn't win anymore than I do with quick picks. I got lazy and just get quick picks now. 

                      I agree with someone above about the same numbers at stores and just weird combos with quick picks. I usually buy my Lucky for life ticket at the same store every time on Wednesday. The reason is I go eat at this burger joint named Brays and have a smoke while I go to the store after. The last time the lucky ball 15 came up, I bought one ticket there and I got 15. I like to get a different lucky ball number then was drawn the last draw, it just makes me feel better lol. So I tell the cashier to give me one more ticket. 15 again. I joke with the cashier about it and tell her to give me one more. 15 again. We both start laughing and she tells me I don't have to buy it. I contemplated about buying it and she prints another one. 15 again. I just laughed and left. Went down the street and got one more ticket and got a different number. Lost on them all. Just the way it goes

                          "Do any of you feel that random numbers are better than quick pick?"

                          The last time I looked, quick picks are random numbers generated by a lottery terminal. If you use a different method to generate random numbers, by definition it's a self pick. There is no way to determine if a terminal generated QP is better than another RNG or player picks because the results are the same as probability.

                              True. For some reason, I think that Lustig fools the public when it comes to Pick 5 and Pick 6 Lotto games, PB, MM, and scratch card games. I believe that he really plays the smaller games like Pick-3 for example because the winner can wager $1000.00 on one set of numbers straight on every ticket repeatedly. If the selected Pick-3 numbers hit, that $1000.00 wager would become $500K. Since the odds of winning Pick-3 are 1:1000, I could see how Lustig really makes his money if he claims to have millions of dollars in the bank. 

                              If that's the case, Lustig has already told a person how to increase your chances of winning the Lottery by playing Pick-3 Lotto games because if you win, your name and face is not publicised as opposed to the Jackpot lotto winners.
