pick your own lottery numbers vs quick pick
Tips & Tricks

To Quick Pick or Not to Quick Pick?

Here's the difference between choosing your own lotto numbers vs using a random number generator.

When it comes to picking your lottery numbers, you have two ways to play. You can choose the exact numbers you want or you can Quick Pick and get a random number selection. So which option brings the most lottery luck?

The Case for Choosing Your Own Numbers

A lot of players have fun picking their own numbers, using birthdays, anniversaries, or other digits that have significance to them. Some play the same numbers week after week. You may even have theories as to which lottery numbers are “hot” and “cold” based on a game’s drawing history. The bottom line? Choosing your own numbers can be fun and strategic.

The Case for Quick Pick

It’s fast. It's easy. AND it makes sure you’re utilizing the full pool of numbers at your disposal. Mega Millions, for example, draws numbers from 1 to 70. One of our own $1,000,000 winners went with a Quick Pick for the win. (BTW, Jackpocket’s Quick Pick (our random number generator) has been evaluated by Gaming Laboratories International. 👌

But, wait! There’s still another option.

The Best of Both Worlds

On the Jackpocket app you can decide to choose your own numbers or Quick Pick, just like you can in-person at the corner store. Our Quick Pick is similar to what in-person lottery retailers offer, but with a huge advantage: You get to see the numbers before you commit to order. 

At checkout, tap “Plays” to see all the numbers in your shopping cart. If you don’t like your numbers, you can clear them and Quick Pick again. The app will generate a set of new random numbers for you. 

Tap “Plays” on your Order Summary to see all the numbers in your shopping cart.

We've had plenty of Jackpocket winners either way! What's your go-to numbers picking strategy?
