    It depends on the lottery game.  I play my own numbers for Pick 3/4 and Pick 5.  I tend to play QP for PB/MM.  I haven't figured out yet, what would work best for the Lucky for Life lottery game in my state of South Carolina.

      Lucky for Life sounds interesting, how does it work? Do they will you a certain amount per year?

          I have one set of my own numbers that I play on every drawing for PB and MM. When a jackpot gets big enough, I also buy a few quick picks.

              I've won much more often on my own picks than on QPs in the past, so I will continue to play my own numbers. (No large prizes yet, but better than no wins at all).

                I usually pick my own numbers as my vote.

                I first buy quick picks with PB selected. Then I buy other half with all the numbers selected by me.

                  I actually look at different members on here just to see what everyone picks.  Then I look at the drawings from past 25 drawings.   Then I will decide.  Luckily where I go to it's not that bad.

                    That sounds like a pretty good game!

                    I wish they would change the Thunderball to something like that.... at the moment it isn't a game worth playing.

                    That was the last draw, I think it's 3 times a week.

                    The odds of winning the Thunderball jackpot areone in 8,060,598

                    It is the only £1 / Line game left so that's a bonus I guess.....

                      I usually pick my own numbers as my vote.

                      It depends on the draw results and how much money I have left. Since it's in Euros, I have to conserve my money.

                        I'm starting to regret getting QP's!

                        I just got one for the EuroMillions and got: 16 18 20 24 31 - 8 9

                        Every ticket has the same chance of winning I guess.... haha.

                          I just did a post on Jackpot Games Forum - Combos & Patterns - update - Lucky 4 Life game.  It is a multi state Lotto.  You might find my results interesting.................................

                          There are combinations in every Jackpot Game.  You just have to know how to find them...................

                            Both.  My system blah blah blah.  I need quick picks to give me those (valid) weird number combos my system does not allow.  Balances things out.  Perhaps.
