Quick Plays Vs Picking Your Own Numbers

To Quick Play or not to Quick Play?

When it comes to playing to win from the draws of overseas lotteries with The Lottery Office, some players are forever wondering whether they have more chances to win by playing their chosen numbers or leaving it up to the lottery gods and opting for Quick Plays.

So, let’s take a look at the advantages of each option.


At The Lottery Office, quick play is a quick and easy way to enter your favourite lottery. With quick plays, randomly generated numbers are assigned to you, so all you have to do is select the lottery game you want to participate in.


Convenient: Quick play is quick and easy to use. The quick play option offers convenience, as there’s no need to pick your own numbers manually.

No time wasted: You don’t need to spend time manually selecting your numbers or trying to come up with the perfect combination of lucky numbers. Instead, leave it in the hands of the quick play system, and you’ll be ready to go in no time at all!


On the other hand, some people believe that picking their own numbers gives them a better chance at winning. Picking your own numbers lets you choose numbers that may be special to you, such as birthdays and anniversaries. It also lets you choose numbers that are ‘hot’ or ‘cold’. Hot and cold numbers are numbers that have been drawn a lot in recent draws (‘hot’) or those that have not been drawn in any recent draws (‘cold’). Some players believe hot and cold numbers can be an indication of what numbers are likely to be drawn next.


More control: When selecting your own numbers, you have complete control over which numbers you want to use. This gives you a chance to pick numbers that have a special meaning to you or even those that your friends and family are fond of.

It makes playing more fun: Some players think picking your own numbers adds more fun to the game. Often, the numbers that players select have some meaning to them. Whether it be anniversary dates, birthdays, or just numbers that they believe bring them luck, seeing them drawn one by one brings added excitement to the game.

Less likely to share the jackpot: If you choose lottery numbers that are less popular, and those numbers win the jackpot, it’s less likely that you’ll be sharing the jackpot win another winner. This could mean the winner will take the entire jackpot all for themselves.


Quick play vs. picking your own numbers depends on what you feel comfortable with and what works best for you. Quick play may be the better option if convenience is important to you. But picking your own is the way to go if you want to add a personal touch and have complete control over your numbers.
