The winning numbers were a quickpick as he added that he has found more luck with that, than writing his own numbers.
“It’s a long time I stop writing numbers because after a while I said I’m just wasting time, so I say it’s better if I just do some quickpick. It’s a long time, it’s over 20 years I’m playing quick pick.”
