 ```How many powerball winners have been from quick picks and how many have created their own tickets?``` Request for Question Clarification by bobbie7-ga on 14 Dec 2005 11:17 PST ```Jazzrw, Please let me know if the information below would be a satisfactory answer to your question because I didn't find the exact number of winners. From loterry questions and answers: "Q: Are there any statistics regarding which picking techniques are winners? Do quick-picks win more often than hand-picked numbers? A: The percentage of quick-picks varies a great deal from game to game and also with the size of the jackpot. In Powerball, the quick-pick percentage normally runs about 70 percent, and about 70 percent of the winners are quick-pick players. The bottom line is that how you pick your numbers has absolutely nothing to do with being a winner. The numbers 1-2-3-4-5*6 have exactly the same chance of winning as any other set of six numbers. The only thing is, if you pick your own numbers, and you base them on something logical, artificial or limiting (like dates), you are more likely to have to split the pari-mutuel jackpot prize because others may be using the same numbers. The most commonly played number combination is 7-14-21-28-35*42. If you won with that number, you would share the jackpot with many, many other players." http://www.lottery.state.mn.us/qanda.html#20``` Request for Question Clarification by bobbie7-ga on 14 Dec 2005 11:18 PST `Sorry for the typo: It should be "lottery" not loterry.` Clarification of Question by jazzrw-ga on 15 Dec 2005 05:15 PST `Yes, that is what I needed to know - gee, thanks for taking up the question quickly!`
