You are right that for most lotteries, the public doesn't have access to the test draws and which ball set was used. Powerball and MUSL, bless their hearts, do post the test draw and ball set info. for the curious.
Ah, but you still don't know which set of balls will be used the night of the drawing, unless you somehow had insider info. Even the officials don't know until an hour before the drawing.
Even then, in the time before the drawing they weigh and then test draw that ball set ahead of time for randomness, to prove there's no discernable pattern. If there is, they change ball sets for the drawing and investigate the discarded set.
There is no system. :)
