    Background:  When I first started playing Wisconsin Supercash they had mechanical draws, what I didn't know is in about 2004 they switched to RNG computers.  I didn't know they did that until I visited Lottery Post.  This website is a wealth of information.  Since then I changed my strategy.  I created a chart similar to stocks.  I've come very close to hitting the numbers but close only counts in hand grenades.  LOL!

      Both QPs and self-picks have their merits and short comings, but both are capable of generating a win.  IMHO, it all comes down to personal preference -- if you enjoy studying the numbers and picking your own combinations, go for it!  If you don't enjoy the process, or if you don't have the time, just buy a QP.

        It will take longer to win with Quick Picks, b/c you have no control over the numbers you play, b/c computer generated numbers can be randomly anything.

        On the other hand, it might take just as long to win something playing your own numbers, if you don't understand concepts and patterns about how best to choose numbers.

          I'm pretty sure I read this on the MM site. In the FAQ, it said 70% of winners are quick-picks and 70% of tickets sold are quick picks.

           

           

          Edit - Actually, it's on the PB site and a bit vague "70 to 80%"

              There's been at least one poll of qp's vs self picks.

              A dogfight that has no winner.

              CAN'T WIN IF YOU'RE NOT IN

              A DOLLAR AND A DREAM (OR $2)

                How about un-studied self-picks?  Hunches and "lucky" numbers.

                  There are pros for both ways, but at the end of the day, the chances of 1, 5, 10, 100, or more tickets of either way winning is exactly the same. With MM and PB, I'm a jackpot hunter so I'm more likely to purchase QPs because win or lose, I won't be replaying those combination.

                  Self picks are more of a conditional bet though lots of players play birthday, anniversary, and other significant dates on one or two lines. Wheels were created to take advantage of playing more personal numbers on more lines. No matter how players determine which and how many numbers they will play, they are betting conditionally enough of their numbers and on the same lines will be drawn.

                  Even abbreviated pick-6 wheels can be some what expensive, lots of the pencil and paper systems suggested the 42 line 4 if 6 of 18 number abbreviated wheel.
