We do an office pool. When I have players that pay after I've bought tickets I buy quick picks with those funds closer to the deadline with better luck this way for some reason.

    I usually buy MM or PB on the day of the draw before the drawing closes. It has to be a quick pick because that's where it usually the jackpot is usually won.

    I hope that one $2 ticket is the only one that matches all 5 numbers plus the Powerball to win the largest Powerball Jackpot in United States history of over $2 Billion Dollars!

      Wouldn't it be wiser to buy the tickets after people pay and not before? This way you don't get stuck with extra tickets that aren't paid for.

        About 70% of people buy quick pick tickets.

        That's the reason most people that win win with quick picks.

        Not because quick picks are luckier than self picks.

          When you do an office pool, I hope your team wins the lottery. Good luck to your team!
