Is it always wise to use all bids?

In a lottery, if you get 60 bids, is it dumb not to use them all? any strategic benefit to using less?

cr. Also, make sure to bid on all the firms you want to work at, regardless of whether they're only holding 10 interviews and you bid them in the 50s. I had 2 firms that I did not get interviews at contact me directly.
