I used to hope WI would offer Hot Lotto. Now it doesn't matter, since even HL has gone computerized.

    Washington State has always had the pin ball traditional system.  I am aware that a set of 6 numbers repeated twice in the 6/49 matrix because I keep a spreadsheet of the 1502 numbers drawn so far.


    3-14-24-26-48-49 was drawn on 02/07/1996 and 05/01/1999


    Is anybody aware of any other numbers in the 6/49 matrix that repeated using the traditional pin ball method?

        Why is it bad?  Look what happened.....3 people won the second drawing while no one won in the first drawing.  The only way for the player to win in a lottery is to have a computer glitch where it is in the players favor.  What is so different between computer drawings and ping-pong ball drawings.  Are you guys really that worried that lotteries are going to cheat.  Is that the only reason.  It is the only reason I can think of.  It's not really as bad as you guys make it out to be.


        Winners are always happy, losers are always unhappy.  If some one one twice with a computerized drawing, they would sacrifice their next born to keep it going.  I don't care either way - I have not hit a jackpot with the New Jersey machine.  I have not hit a jackpot in Pennsylvania.  I have not hit a jackpot in New York.  I have not hit a jackpot in California.  I have not hit a jackpot in Texas.  Any one getting the trend here?  I do know a guy who knows some one who won the MM jackpot a short time ago.  He is her ex-husband!  I doubt if those winners care what New Jersey Lottery uses, or even know!  If you could ask only one question of any jackpot winner, and the question was: Do you care if the draw was a machine, a computer, or an elephant dragging bricks down the hill?  I would bet, not a single winner cares.  See money, get money!  Nothing else matters.
