It technically doesn't matter. The numbers you come up with have the same chance of winning as do the numbers the quick pick machine puts out. Even if you pick a particular set of the same numbers each week it is irrelevant. Each lottery round should be treated as an individual round and any numbers you've chosen in the past will have no bearing. That being said my father won the lottery with the set of numbers that he chose. He played a combination of both quick pick and his own numbers each and every week. the set of numbers he won with were a set of numbers that he played each week. His birthday (month & day), moms birthday, his age when he first started playing( 10 years before he won BTW :) and moms age when he first started playing. Those are the six numbers that won. Here' the coolest part though... He actually had moms age wrong for how old she would have been when he started playing the lottery. He had been playing with that wrong number for 10 years. It's amazing to think that had he used the right number for moms age he would not have won the jackpot. So there really is no way to gain any advantage in choosing numbers. GOOD LUCK!
I like to pick my own numbers although it really makes no difference. The odds of my numbers or a quick pick showing up are about the same. These odds are against you so it really makes no difference. Like to be right just one time.
