Who do you think plays more tickets (lines), people playing quick picks or self picks?

(Keep it to jackpot games)

Who do you think loses more, money wise? Consider that most tickets are losers.

Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

    I think people play more QP, and probably lose more $$ playing QP, in a Jackpot game.

        According to the media, 70% of tickets bought in most draws are quick picks. The qp crowd wins hands down. If they play more then it makes sense that they win/lose more.

        That money's gone fo ever

          I think people who play quick picks loose more.  My thought is that people who play their own numbers may study the, say powerball numbers week after week, year after year to come up a feel good set of numbers.  They may not win big, but I think they may get some of there money back.

            QP's no doubt. Some people are not capable of picking their own numbers, they want machines to do everything for them. So yeah- Quick Picks.

              My observation in line, is that most people play qp. I play one set that i picked years ago. I have a second set that I play obce in a while that was initially a quick pick.  So is it a qp or a chosen number... I hVe won larger prizes on my self pick, won more often with qp.

                  This is directly from the powerball website FAQ section

                  WHICH HAS THE BETTER CHANCE OF WINNING: COMPUTER PICKS OR PLAYER PICKS?

                  About 70% to 80% of purchases are computer picks. About 70% to80% of winners are computer picks. Perhaps just one of those weird coincidences?

                    I'm thinking a little differently. I'd say that the mot common QP ticket is one line, but those that like to pick their own numbers are more likely to play more than one line.

                    So in volume of tickets sold, as the websites tell us 70 -80% are quick picks, but as for money made by the lottery per individual ticket I'm thinking self picks. Of course the lotteries love both methods of play and just count the $$$$ coming in.

                    To SilverLion,

                    It's no great surprise that you are part of the spite rating club, if that's all you got you must have one sad life.

                      Ok.  You win.   

                      MUSL does no wrong.   They dont lie.  They are incorruptible.

                      There website is the word of god.

                      Unless they work in Illonois.

                      They know the odds. 

                      They know nobody can win.

                      But they change the matrix anyway.

                      We need some more one stars here.  Cmon people!

                        I didn't post the stat from the MUSL this time, Einstein.

                        I also don't spell Illinois like you do.

                        Making 1-star ratings is one thing, asking others to can get you sent to the land of no avatar.

                        You only proved yourself to be a low rent, bush league sleaze ball.

                          I cant say who pays more, or wins more. just that last yeare i had an average return of %32, and so far this years its tracking along at $22%.

                          meaning for every $100 I bet, I get back $22 in wins, and $32  last years.

                          oh and i play my own numbers, hehe usually the same one unless they really suck, then i might change them.

                          2014 = -1016; 2015= -1409; 2016 JAN = -106; FEB= -81; MAR= -131; APR= - 87: MAY= -91; JUN= -39; JUL=-134; AUG= -124; SEP = -123; OCT= -84  NOV=- 73 TOT= -3498

                          keno historic = -2291 ; 2015= -603; 2016= JAN=-32, FEB= +12 , MAR= -86, APR = -77. MAY= -48, JUN= -29, JUL=-71; AUG = -52; SEPT= -43; OCT = +56 NOV = -33 TOT= -3297

                            Hey Silverlion,

                            thank you for reminding me to rate this thread! Almost forget to give it a 5 star salute! 

                            Savagegoose, my return is 19% this year....

                              Gee savagegoose , do l understand you correctly that you gave this thread " One Star rating " because your return on your investment is pretty bad and that your own numbers really suck?. How is that Coin's fault?
