When you play any Illinois Lottery game, you can decide whether to choose your own lucky numbers or get a Quick Pick. There’s a QP box to mark on your playslip, or you can just speak to the retailer.
If you ask for a Quick Pick, the computer will generate a set of numbers for you and these will be printed on your ticket. It’s the fastest way to play, and ensures that your selections are completely random.
The odds of winning are exactly the same whether you play a Quick Pick or choose your own numbers. However, in some games it can be advantageous to use random numbers, as you are less likely to have to share a big jackpot. If you played your own numbers and used a familiar pattern, such as 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5, there would probably be lots of other players using the same numbers.
