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

It sounds as if you are relating RNG's to the selection of winning lottery numbers only.  Yes, these can (and have) been rigged.  However, in the scheme of programming they are both identical.  It is just terminology.  Quick Pick is a phrase coined in marketing.  The actual selection of the Quick Pick numbers is by RNG's, for both pre-draw number selection, and (in some states) actual winning draw numbers.

  I'm feeling a $312,000,000.00 jackpot win coming my way!

    What is the Difference?

    No Difference!

    Give me a Quick Pick is Slang for Give me a Random Number Generator Pick!

    A mind once stretched by a new idea never returns to its original dimensions!

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

        For once I agree with you.

              That's the point. The two terms mean two different things in our common slang. Just because they are the same thing physically, doesn't mean they are the same thing linguistically. Alaska is geographically and weather wise close to Canada nd far from the US but legally and politically, Alaska is closer to Florida in many different ways than the Yukon. Alaskans vote for the US president and not the Canadian PM, It has an FBI office and no Canadian mounty office, etc. I was merely pointing out the linguistic value of using the correct term.

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

                  Always my own numbers, I learn from my mistakes and keep on playing.

                    So far, my philosophy is if you're going to buy 1 ticket...do a quick pick. If you're going to buy 10 or 100, pick your own lol.

                    On several occasions, the quick picks often duplicate numbers in a ticket. Atleast with picking your own, you can avoid that and also if you have only a 5 or 10 mega balls to pick from, you can hit them all. Quick picks are stupid. I bought a mega millions quick pick last night, and it had 4 "cold" numbers and only 1 number Currently in circulation. And then, it does stupid combinations to try and get all the field of numbers. Most of the times, the numbers hit one or 2 away from each other before jumping off into another number field. And quick picks almost always start at under 10. Very few times am I satisfied with the quick picks I get

                    A friend of mine thinks it's a waste of time trying to pick your own. But, you can use those same slips over and over...

                        I suppose the difference is the numbers from lottery terminal QPs are printed on a ticket and can actually win a prize, but numbers from QP generators, lottery combination generators, or any type of RNG must be copied onto play slips.
