Just a general question to see what most of the active members are doing when playing for jackpots during the weeks...

          I'll do QP's for a while, then switch to self picks, maybe use LP's RNG.

            I sometimes buy QP's if i'm in a rush or if i just feel it but most of the time i pick my own numbers. There are enough random variables when it comes to the lottery, I want to hae at least some control over whether i win it. Besides i'm from a small town and my college is in a small suburb so the chances of the few places in either getting the magic quick pick are minuscule compared to the amount of places in NYC or LA and it would be nice to finally have them be known for something.

              It's not an RNG, it's a Quick Pick Generator. Big difference.

                Mostly my own...occassional QPs see if any trends...and for the bigger games I like partial QPs....play my top 2 or 3 and let the computer pick the last....

                    Most of the time it's quick pick. Sometimes I will pick a game's worth of numbers.

                       I played my own numbers and the same numbers for a couple of years. I looked at them again and decided that there were too many birthday numbers. Now I play Quick Pick. 

                       70% of the winners are QP's  because 70% of the players buy QP's.

                       Like Bunky Barlett said after winning in Maryland,"I left it up to the Universe to manipulate the machine".

                      Anyway Good Luck to you in any way you play. 

                      May Fate & Destiny be in your corner.

                            Whether by atmospheric noise, pseudo-random number algorithms, PHP based mathematical generation, or any randomized computer selection method, I always thought a Quick Pick Generator and a Random Number Generator were one and the same. 

                            If, not what distinguishes one from the other?

                              I'm feeling a $123,000,000.00 jackpot win coming my way!

                              One is rig able and was rigged, the other is useless to rig.
