    I think they wouldn't use the nonwinning Pick tickets themselves mainly because a lot of people throw them away immediately.

    The real reason we hate computerized drawings is because they are very hard to systemize  - except that one time but that's rare!

    I don't bother with computerized draws such as the PA midday until I can ever find a system for it.

    If all is fair and the drawings are completely random, over time there is no way to get back more than 50% what you spend. I only play something that I think I can win, or for a large enough jackpot that it's worth trying even against the odds.

    NOTE: I like how on the VA page where you download #s it tells you that you have no hope with a system. I beg to differ; theirs are not computerized. Yet.

      Is there a link that can tell us which States games are computer generated and which are ping pong balls ?

      I think I would like to take the advice and play yesterday's numbers each day on the RNG states......

                    Keep computerized drawings, at least for the smaller games. That way I can continue learning how to exploit them.

                        Oh well, none of the states are close enough for me to participate in the "rigged numbers game" , so I will stick with the tried and true GA and SC games.

                          I'm betting some online LP members playing the 'forbidden' site cleaned up on this.  Guess it wouldn't show on the official records.

                          Wonder if they'll pay off now that it's established there was an error.

                          -----------------------------

                          Incidently, interesting to note there was evidently no mechanism for detecting the problem other than watching the draws...... hmmm two days, just a coincidence.  Three days in a row and someone starts looking at things.

                          If they're going to use computers I suppose that's just the cost of doing business.

Or perhaps they figure they can just rip people off, since many people will figure it isn't worth the bother and the 37 cent stamp (39 cents for anyone who procrastinates until 1/8) to get back a dollar. Of course it will cost Kansas a decent chunk of change to print the coupons, do the paperwork, and mail them back to people.<<
