Is it better to get big game numbers, powerball,...etc on single tickets or all together. For instance...if I was going to buy 25 easy picks for Fridays Big game drawing...do you think it's better to get 25 seperate tickets or get them all together which would be 10, 10 and 5?? I don't think either one will increase one's chances of winning. What do you think?

    I usually buy my tickets on single tickets. I've found that quite often in PA when you get quick picks with all numbers on one ticket, the numbers tend to repeat.

    Plus I find it more fun to go through ticket by ticket to see if I'm the winner.

      After all, Super-6 plays come in THREES, and two of them are AUTOMATIC quick-picks...

        I don't think it matters as far as the numbers go.  Mega Millions in Maryland and Powerball in Pennsylvania both do a maximum of 5 sets of numbers per ticket.  As I run a couple of pools and have to scan and distribute copies of the tickets, I prefer as many numbers as possilble on each ticket.  I wish they would allow more.

          I usually play only one game per ticket.

            I've seen players request 20+ single QP's, I always thought they were just trying to be a pain in the behind and make sure the clerks work a little extra for their money or make the people in  line behind them wait a little longer.
