I'm not sure what the deal is but whenever I get a QP, I often get 5 out of 6 odd or even numbers, all high numbers, all low numbers, or a lot of numbers that begin or end with the same digit like  02 03 31 39 60 03.  It happens at different stores and from the cashier or ticket vending machine. Does this happen a lot to anyone else on here?

    Usually qp's on jackpot games I get are crappy too, none have won big yet. I don't

    play often but will get a few when the prize is high. I got $10 for the MM and won a

    whole big dollar I believe.

    The numbers were very similar..PA prints 10 plays per ticket and I had 3 of one MB

    3 of another 2 of another and 2 different ones. The main play numbers were junky

    but if I was playing every week I would choose my own. I doubt they'd do better but

    they'd be my crappy picks instead of a machines...that somehow is easier to take.

    246 ~~ 485 ~~ 369 ~~ 890 ~~ 705 ~~ 357 ~~ 129 ~~ 165 ~  007 ~ 225 ~ 818 ~ 440 ~  7775 5557

      It always seems like there's something I don't like about  QP numbers, often all high or all low.  It seems like I win more often (the small prizes) with my own numbers too.

        I bet there have been a QP winner or two in the past that like yourself took one look at the numbers on the ticket that the machine gave them and shook their heads prior to the spin as well, by the end of the evening, those " crappy numbers" turned to Gold. Here's to hoping your crap turns to Gold in the very near future morgothaod.Big Smile

          Three matrix changes ago, I stopped expecting to get a winning ticket and even more so now that 190,612,800 PB combinations won't match one number including the bonus number. There are 7,624,512 that won't match one of the five numbers making the even/odd and high/low distribution just part of what we should expect to get.

            I here ya. That's part of the reason why I started playing my own numbers in Mega and PB. I play QPs for state jackpot games. You could use the Vinh Nguyen strategy and pick numbers off the top of your head. Good luck!

            May the balls bounce in your favor!

              If you don't like those quick picks you can get quick picks in some other way, for example the Lottery Post has a quick pick generator and there are others elsewhere.

                Your set of numbers might look crappy but remember that even those lines that look bad can end up being drawn.

                  I don't always like the number my local machines pit at me either ..... but one never knows for certain

                      I could write a webpage for filtered quick-picks.
                      This was an idea that I had longer ago.

                        Repeat the ticket for the next game and see what happens.

                          If they all repeat, you win with one line. ;)

                            All of the lines on a $10 ticket can't repeat.

                              I meant, if you play the numbers of the previous drawing, you only have one line to play.

                              You meant revalidate your previously played lines.
