Which tickets are more likely to win, quick pick tickets or tickets with player selected numbers?
There is no difference in probabilities between quick pick tickets and tickets with player selected numbers. All number combinations have identical probability of winning. This is also why, as stated in an earlier answer, that there is no value in attempting to predict lottery numbers. All tickets have the same probability of winning. Lottery draws are random.
But I heard that quick pick tickets win more often. Therefore are not quick pick tickets better?
The reason quick pick tickets win more often is because most tickets are quick picks. Approximately 70% of all lottery tickets are quick picks and 70% of draws are won with quick picks. There is no difference in the probability of winning between quick pick tickets and tickets with player selected numbers.
Why is it recommended to pick your own numbers?
One should pick one's own numbers when playing the lottery because some numbers and number combinations should be avoided. They should be avoided because they are popular with many players. Playing popular numbers and number combinations causes prizes to be split. In the case of the jackpot, the difference can be between a single ticket winning a $25 million jackpot and 10 tickets splitting the same jackpot. When playing in a group, multiple jackpot winners is something to avoid. Mario's Lottery Groups avoids playing popular numbers and number combinations to maximize the probability of not having to share the jackpot prize with other winning tickets. This strategy also works with the lower tier pari-mutuel prizes. For example, the match 4 prize of Lotto 649 is an average of $70 but varies between $38 and $100 depending if the winning numbers were played by many people. The match 5 prize of Lotto 649 is an average of $2,000 but varies between $800 and $3,000. Whenever Mario's Lottery Group won a match 5 or match 4 prize in Lotto 649, the prize was larger than average because popular numbers and number combinations were not played.
