I knew right away that I hadn't won the $587.5 million Powerball jackpot Wednesday night. I try to play the same combination of numbers each time, and 5-16-22-23-29 (6) definitely isn't it.

If you bought a ticket for this week's drawing, did you pick your own numbers or opt for a randomly generated Quick Pick?

If you select your own numbers, are they digits that hold some meaning for you? Or do they just feel lucky?
