I got this off the internet.

You may have heard that you are more likely to be hit on the head by a meteorite than to win the lottery. This is certainly so. Assuming that the game is honest, the odds are roughly one in several hundred million. Even with these odds, lottery commissions are not satisfied. The lottery is rigged.

The giant multi-state and individual state lotteries are more fixed than pro wrestling. The jackpots go up and up, with no winners. People get lottery fever. Millions nationwide are willing to wait in a line just like the ones for bread in the former Soviet Union for the pipe dream of striking it rich. The rigging works like this: super computers keep track of each combination sold, and then the ping-pong balls are weighted to assure that a losing combination comes up. On rare occasions, all possible combinations are sold, and they must let someone win. Only then is the game is honest.

Why? The lottery, which is a state-run version of the Mafia's numbers racket, is a great money grab scam, as long as it brings in more than it pays out. In the past, lotteries were abolished because they lost money.The worst part of this is whom it hurts. The poor and desperate are the most common victims of lottery fever. Children go hungry and senior citizens go without their medication because of it. People prone to gambling addiction also blow huge sums.

We spoke with an employee at a state lottery agency. We can not reveal his name or even which state, as some of the same gangsters who ran the numbers racket now run the lottery, and they would kill him. “Yes, I personally am involved in it. Lottery ping-pong balls have a small valve, like a basketball or soccer ball, only it’s very tiny, and nearly invisible. We use a hypodermic needle to inject heavier-than-air gasses such as radon into the balls we don’t want to come up. At first, we tried helium in the ones we did want to rise, but they jumped up so quickly that it was obvious. Lotteries are raking in much more than if the games were honest, and people don’t know they have literally no chance!”“If you think about it logically, you certainly don’t play anyway. You are betting that you can predict which six of 45 or more balls are going to come out of the hopper. In some games, the order even matters! It’s a sucker’s bet, and that’s when it’s honest! Most drawings are rigged, making the odds zero in infinity! The lottery is not only a tax on people who don’t understand math; it is an unfair and unjust tax. Didn’t we have the American Revolution over taxes like that?”

        I agree that most people waste a lot of money on JP games despite realizing the astronomical odds against them winning just once in their lifetime. But what I disagree with is the part about it being rigged. The astronomical odds do all the dirty work for the officials. No rigging required.

        Now, If you want to talk about p-3 and p-4 games, the pre-tests, post-tests, rotation of machines sets and tubes is definitely a way they throw off the natural flow of numbers.

        If they really want to safeguard the machines from tampering, have a video camera pointing at them in a room when not in use. Problem solved. Everything else is just smoke and mirrors.

                       0.1% of people who play for a major JP will win in their lifetime.

          As for the pretests, I recently emailed my lottery asking if they publish the results. They replied, asking which drawing in

          particular. I answered back saying I wanted to get them on a daily basis. They never got back to me. What a bummer. What?

            Those pretests are what would make people think something is not right. For example in the link below, for Lotto Texas (6/54) they conducted 6 pretests for the 11/23/2013 draw. Why so many?!

            http://www.txlottery.org/export/sites/lottery/Games/Lotto_Texas/Pre-test_Results.html

            Maybe if they clued-in the public at what they're looking for then maybe it would reduce the nagging feeling. Just saying.

            It's a futile effort.

              The results won't help me predict more accurately. The fact that they tampered with the machine in the first place by disrupting the signature of the electric field around the machine is enough for me to have a complaint.

                I hate to keep beating a dead horse, but everytime some person starts a thread about this, I have to make them aware of what someone on LP wrote about this.

                The person said that pre-tests are equivalent of starting your car 6 times a day just to make sure the starter is still working properly. Brilliant !

                  The fixing of the lottery goes like this in the first place:

                  PICK 3: 1000 combinations
                  1 wins, he gets 500.
                  999 loose, they pay 999.
                  500 to the winner, 1000-500 to the lottery.
                  I simplify!

                  The amounts get smaller on all sides due to taxes and other costs.
                  The lottery got 1000 - costs = taxable.

                  System play:
                  If you play for example always number 456, it might be that it just won't show up until you get grey hair.
                  On the other side you just might drop a winning number, because you don't know anything about math, and you drop the number because it already won.

                  I have seen set switches that delivered many repetitions, so don't blame the pre-tests!

                          There are lots of different companies that make lottery balls and not sall of them are ping pong balls some of them are made of a rubbery substance and way bigger.

                          I have held a regular size lottery ball ping pong style and i can assure you there is no fill hole in them.

                            I would pay to see the outrage by viewers on the TV game show, "Wheel of Fortune", if Pat Sajak performed pre-tests of the wheel, SIX times before and three times after a spin by the contestant. Green laugh
