Quick Picks – To Choose or Not to Choose Them
Choosing lottery tickets is a very tough call to take. Some of us choose our favourite numbers when we are buying the tickets while some others prefer to buy the ones suggested by experts. There is another method called Quick Picks where people select the numbers randomly. Here the numbers are automatically generated without providing you any option for customizing yourself.
You will be surprised to know that this is the method which is used by most of the people to buy their lottery tickets in jackpots like Powerball. Also, majority of the Mega Million lottery players follow this method to buy their tickets.
It uses a technique of cryptographic libraries and programs to offer you high levels of randomization. One advantage of using this method is you are unbiased here and there are no limitations in permutations as to which numbers to choose and which ones to avoid. The numbers chosen by Quick Picks will thus be free from influences such as ‘hot’ and ‘cold’ numbers.
Quick Pick can be a great idea for those who play every week and become tired of choosing new tickets every time. Also, your tickets will be evenly distributed across the range of numbers so that you have higher probabilities of winning.
The numbers are randomly generated and you will have a better chance to cover the matrix of that lottery. However, if you are looking forward to increase your chances of winning a lottery, Quick Pick is not the ideal method for it. You should rather select your own numbers that will be greater than 31 and would not match with others. Quick Pick will not allow you to implement this strategy.
The strategy has also been disregarded by many of the lotto professionals. There have even been instances where the number of tickets sold has exceeded the number of possible combinations. When it was possible to create only 292.2 million tickets by using the algorithms, 440.3 million tickets were been found to be sold. Such incidents have a wrong impact on the results of the lottery. There’s no doubt that Quick Pick increases the probability of winning the lottery for everyone. However, the probability of no one winning the lottery increases at the same time!
Instead of going for Quick Pick, you may also go for a mathematical analysis of the lottery in order to increase your chances of winning. Every lottery consists of best, fair and worst patterns. These patterns and concepts are mainly based on the probability lessons that each one of us has learnt in our school days.
So, we may conclude by saying that Quick Picks can be a great method from certain perspectives but it is not advisable for many-a-reason. The choice is yours…..Let the machine select your tickets at random or pick the most probable ones (according to you) yourself!
