Most of the time when I buy Powerball, Mega, or NY Lotto they are Quick-Pick. Very rarely will I get self-pick numbers.

    I don't think I have ever done my own numbers, I am too worried about them one day hitting when I haven't played!

    I know people who've done their own set of numbers since they were 16 and played every draw and when the UK Lotto increased to £2 a line they've had to start shelling out a fortune each draw!

    2016 Won/Lost

    EuroMillions / Spent: £22 / Won £0 / Total -£22

    UK Lotto / Spent: £4 / Won: £0 / Total: -£4

    2016 Total: -£24

    Jan: -£22 Feb: £0 ~ Mar: £0 ~ April: £0 ~ May: £0 ~ June: £0 ~ July: £2


    EuroMillions = £2 Line / Played: x11 [old price] 

    EuroMillions = £2.50 Line / Played: x0

    UK Lotto = £2 Line / Played x2

      Most of the time when I play I pick my own numbers.

          I do have my own set of numbers and am also worried about one day those numbers coming up when haven't played that draw.  Most of the time I go with quick picks.

            I study the past winning numbers for PB/MM and hoosier lottery and pick a set to play for the month with multi draw. That way i am only buying tickets once a month. I sometimes do a QP for games i only play occasionally like cash 5

              60-40 Quick picks and self picks.

              I wish my state had "mix & match" like Georgia and I think it's Texas or Florida.

              In other words, say you pick 3 numbers and the terminal picks the other three.

              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 always pick my own numbers but they change daily depending on the last draw.  I chart the numbers looking for a trend and groupings.

                    I saved a few slips of numbers that I like, that I reuse from time to time, when I remember I have one in the glove box. Typically I will just get a QP on my way out of the grocery store, though.

                    Im sure that winning either way would be an amazing feeling, but Ive always thought it might feel a little extra awesome if you picked your own numbers and they came up! 


                    I've got QP for tonights PB! Good luck everyone!

                      I do my own numbers every week for 4 different games.  Sooner or later, the numbers will come up for a nice hit

                          Always play one line of my own numbers for MM and PB, and occasionally throw in a QP or 2 (just to beef up the pot).

                             I get my numbers from Lottery Post. I research their past here on LP. Then I bet on them using play slips. For PB I play advance play. Five weeks of play.

                             For MM I also play advance play. Ten weeks of play.
