Quick Pick: The Most Important Lottery Decision You’ll Make

Today we shed light on one of the most important choices a lottery player must make when trying to pick those winning lottery numbers—whether to quick pick or not!

This week, a single ticket in Indiana just took home the US$570-million US Mega Millions jackpot, and the US Powerball jackpot rolled to a whopping US$311 million. In honour of these historic jackpots, LottoExpress has an important question for all you lottery players out there:

Are you a quick picker?

We’ve previously discussed different number picking styles in this blog—from picking hot or cold numbers to considering the luckiest numbers to play—and today it’s all about randomness, baby!

To Quick Pick or Not?

Computerized quick picks (or random number generators) were first introduced to lottery games by the New York State Lottery in the late 1980s. Since then, quick picks have become the preferred method of choice for most lottery players: according to the US Powerball website, between 70-80% of lottery tickets sold are quick picks.

But believe it or not, whether to use a quick pick system to make one’s lottery selections is a topic of disagreement among lottery analysts.

Some Say Yes!

On the one hand, some experts say that quick picks are the right bet because they tend to cover the less commonly used numbers in each lottery’s number matrix (the full spread of numbers available to pick from).

For example, many people’s “lucky numbers” consist of birthdays, anniversaries, and other important calendar dates. (In other words, numbers between 1 and 31.) But for all major lotteries, the number matrix extends well beyond 31, meaning a whole range of numbers is left out.

Quick pick advocates suggest that randomly assigned numbers cover those higher numbers more effectively.

But Not So Fast …

On the other hand, some lottery observers insist that you should pick your own numbers, because there is a good chance that quick pick systems assign commonly used numbers.

By choosing your own numbers, you can avoid picking those common numbers, and instead focus on landing that perfect combination!

Experts who recommend picking your own numbers have another strong piece of advice: make sure that once you have your unique set of numbers, stick with it.

Remember: nothing could be worse than switching it up and watching your old numbers take home a big prize!

As for which system has more success? Well, it’s a wash: you are about equally as likely to win with a quick pick as you are using your own numbers.

So remember, whether you use your own secret formula to pick your perfect numbers, or put your fate in the hands of a computer, you have to play to win!

And with the US Powerball jackpot currently at an estimated US$333 million, LottoExpress gives you amazing options to score the win of a lifetime!

Now’s the best time to play: go pick those numbers, and good luck!
