      To me, that means that means that they would rather go with their brain or pet strategy over their instincts.

           If you can't, go too the store and spend it, or, take it too the counter and cash it in.

           It don't count!!!

           And you weren't right! 

          Horseshoes and hand-grenades are the only things close counts in.

            If I bought a "system" ticket and a Quick Pick, and won on the Quick Pick... I'd be just as thrilled.

            I'd rather be rich than right...

            Playing more than one ticket per game is betting against yourself.

              I don't think they're saying anything, because if you don't win then you aren't right.

                  Although I don't consider myself a serious player,,,,I do love a challenge, and this is the one game where you have to be right to win.  If you think quick pick is right, or your own numbers are right the only way to prove it is to win!!

                      I play because I have a love for "number's." If I "WIN" I consider that a gift from God...

                        The only right numbers are the winning numbers.

                            Maybe alot of people that play the big games feel less wrong playing those games rather than using their powers on the daily games.They really don't expect to win at all or often. That way they are less wrong more often.

                              much has to do with the payout... spending $1 at a chance of winning $500 not as enticing as spending $1 at a chance for millions.

                              daily draws are actually 3 (or 4) separate dvents as each digit is drawn from a different machine... something like the cash 5 in PA pays out 100,000 minimum, one dvent (non-replacement draw 5/39). odds are much worse (500,000+ to one vs. 1000/1 or 10000/1) but payout is decidedly better. Also, alot of people won... you would be hard-pressed to find someone living in PA who doesn't know someone who won the cash 5 at least once... I haven't won but I know 3 people who did (one with a QP and 1 with birthday numbers and 1 with his "secret system"... 2 shared with another winner $50k before taxes ,one hit for 230,000 all alone, and won before... twice... he picks his own numbers and isn't planning on sharing how)... there is also a guy in the town where I work that won 5 times since 1992.

                              I'm sure scores more win at the daily number (3 and 4) you just never hear about it.

                              Playing more than one ticket per game is betting against yourself.
