Up in Schenectady, NY

Published:

Well, my internship is undeway, and guess what one of the people I work with does on the side.  He directs the New York Lottery drawings.  I'm not kidding.  This guy knows Yolanda Vega.  He explained to me why New York needed that turntable for their numbers and win 4 drawings, and hoe expensive the take 5 and lotto drawings are, and that they actually use a ball machine for the pick 10 drawings.  someone revolves it and it spits out 10 numbers on one side, and 10 on the other side.  He showed me fotage of the 9/11/02 drawing, and told me that the day taht there were 2 top prize winners on the pick 10 they checked everything to make sure it wasn't a fix.  I learned a lot of secrets about the New York Lottery (but none on why Lotto only pays out 38-40%), especially where the money really goes to (it's not always educaton).

I also found out that one of the camera operators at the station is also the camera operator for the lottery drawings.
