This is exactly how LosingJeff was drawn in. It took him nearly four years to buy around forty thousand Hoosier Lottery Daily-4 tickets which were off by one number, and he still has them. I have fifteen thousand non-winning tickets from that game which are also off by one digit, but that's only because I stopped playing when I discovered what they were doing.
   Be very, very careful, Mike. Don't be the guy who says, "Well, yeah; I know the game is fixed, but it's the only game in town."
   I don't mean to imply that Tennessee's lottery games are being rigged like those of the Hoosier Lottery. I don't have enough information to justify such an accusation. However, I do find it interesting that the introduction to the new format in Tennessee is beginning to unfold in the same way the Hoosier Lottery did.
   Keep your eye on the payouts; that's the key to determining whether your state lottery is cheating you. Also, monitor where and how your state's lottery revenues are allocated, as this can provide vital evidence. If you discover, for example, that your legislature has passed a law that funnels all lottery profits into your state employees' pension funds, then you KNOW you're in trouble. If this should happen in the next year or two, you should buy two safety vaults (also called "safes"), one a little larger than the other. Put your money in the smaller one, put that one in the larger safe and bury the whole thing in another state.
   In Indiana, they steal what they can from the lottery (about $100 million per year just vanishes into thin air), then they skim even more from illegal loans (which, judging from what we've gathered, are NEVER repaid) made from the state pension funds. These funds, the State Policemen's, Firemen's and Teachers' pension funds, are constantly borrowing money from commercial sources just to stay afloat, and yet they are the ONLY beneficiaries of Hoosier Lottery revenues.
   Even people who detest RNG-drawn lotteries will tend to give them the benefit of the doubt. They think to themselves, "Well, they MIGHT be running it honestly ..." But what they forget to consider is WHY the change was made to a profitable business in the first place. Contrary to the popular argument, evidence will show that RNG's do NOT save lotteries ANY money in overhead. When we look at the money state lotteries LOSE when they switch to electronic drawings, the savings they claim fall far short of making up the money they've already lost. The Hoosier Lottery, for example, lost over $100 million in sales, and another $100 million in revenue in fiscal 2000, the first year they drew the games with their 386 computers, and yet they made a grand press release claiming they saved $80,000 in overhead expenses with their new machine!
   My advice is, Don't play at all. If enough people refuse to play their games, they'll have to think of other ways to steal from you.
   Jim

Since becoming RNG, 26 pick-3 draws without a double. Random or Fixed?
The one off theory is why online playing was soooo beneficial. Numbers played never entered the states computer system.
