I think as long as they purchase 24,000 unique tickets, their chances of winning remains constant.

They could decrease their chances of having to share the prize by picking only numbers 32 and higher. Most people who don't get quick picks play the birthdays of their family members. Avoiding those numbers will not decrease your chance of winning, but will decrease the probability that someone out there picked the same numbers as you.
