Mistakes

There's a book on lotteries that I got from the library that was very informative.  I forget the title but I would recommend it to anyone.  Anyway, the author doesn't believe in any number picking system and believes that quick pick is the way to go.  He also mentioned that mistake tickets seemed to be very lucky.  It was rather tongue in cheek, but he said that if you really want to win, buy up all the mistake tickets. 

I did that for this MM draw, so I'm hoping one of these mistake tickets does the trick.  Anyone else believe in mistake tickets?

It hard to believe there's enough information about buying quick pick lottery tickets to fill a book let alone give you an edge.  Good luck on your QP's

*Note - Quick pick or Easy pick and hope to get lucky is a number picking system, it's easy and quick.

People actually buy a book on how to play Quick Picks? OK! I'm starting one tonight, How to lose at the lottery. Should sell a million copies the first day.

Buy up all the mistake tickets...what is that exactly? Is that one ticket that you've made a mistake on? how many mistakes does one make when buying tickets.

Gail Howard's book fully addresses the foolishness of buying a quickpick; you can look at it on amazon or elsewhere or on her site.

Wrong book. This one praises QP and doesn't like systems. Was the author named Whitaker?

Mistakes are the tickets quick pick players don't like once they've been printed.  I've seen quick pick players trying to cancel their tickets to get another quick pick that look better.

So people actually leave their mistake tickets behind with the store and people buy those mistake tickets? I never heard of that being done.

Actually, I have see the cashiers sell them again. When some one changes theiir mind, or whatever reason, the next guy who asks for that amount, gets that ticket. Its why I switched to slips, even for QP buys.

Well I guess it's a good thing that I usually play my own numbers or take the slip in and just choose quick pick on the paper.

In case you want one...

If anyone is in Michigan, told guy I wanted 2 separate MM tickets. He printed 1 ticket with 2 sets of numbers. So that ticket with the 2 sets of numbers is sitting right by the terminal!

I'll look for the title and author of the book the next time I'm in the library. The author says that each pick is an independent random event, so there is no way of predicting what the number will be.  He says lottery number picking software is a scam. 

Mistake tickets are tickets that are rejected by the original purchaser for one reason or another.  The mistake tickets I bought were from my father's request.  He wanted 7 tickets, $2 each.  The clerk printed out 6 tickets, $1 each before he caught his mistake.  We left the store, and I had a nagging feeling that if one of those numbers won, I'd kick myself.  So I went back and bought them.

Yes I bought a few once that was left behind, because I knew it would make a great story if I won. I wonder how many people would then claim that they actually paid for the ticket, or lost it? LOL I wonder if any clerk ever kept an eye on the winning the numbers, and the tickets left behind? Could they still somehow buy the ticket I wonder?
