    There’s only one way to positively guarantee winning the lottery, and that is to get the numbers on your ticket to match the actual numbers in the draw (if only there was a way to know that in advance!) Anyway, I’ve made up a little free and just-for-fun “app” which generates your own personal Quick Pick numbers. Who knows, it could work – you just never know your luck! Can’t promise anything of course, but as I say it is completely free, so look out for “VillaLibra Lucky Numbers” next time just for a bit of fun.
