I didn't know about HL going computer at the time I bought the ticket. It would not surprise me to see PB do it too. Consider this, Channel 6 in Philadelphia usually cuts into the PB drawing midway through it or sometimes miss it outright. Channel 6 probably serves the biggest number of prospective Powerball players (most of Eastern Pennsylvania south of I-80 and almost all of Delaware). IIRC, Philadelphia is the biggest city selling PB. If they don't care enough to air the drawing in full (only a passing blow), then would most people notice or care if it disappeared and just showed the numbers during the 11 o'clock news? (I'm talking most people in general, not necessarily people here).

I know what you mean, it's bogus. Fortunately, I also get WNEP out of Scranton which shows the PB drawing in it's entirety.

    I'm quite familiar with WNEP. Their theme music is bad and their news is rather y, but I guess if they are the #1 most watched news in the nation, who am I to judge?

    I should note that I have to make one exception to the "dont buy computerized" rule. When my grandma wants me to buy her numbers, I will naturally comply, regardless of computerized or not. But it's a trade off. Grandma is the one person that'll stick up for you always, so who can say no to a simple request?

      the average lottery player doesn't care if its computerized or not.....

          Have we ever determined how Ontario draws its numbers?

            I'm pretty sure they use balls. But we only have proof of Pick-3, Pick-4, and the Canada-wide games being ball-drawn. The way other games like Payday and Lottario (which is awesome) are drawn have not yet been comfirmed.

              I noticed that someone has updated the scorecard reflection Ontario as having 100% true drawings.

                I think only Todd can do that.

                BTW I read something on a future Canada-wide game that would be a cross between Lotto 6/49 and MM/PB. Players would not only pick 6 of 49, but also one "mega" ball 1-10.

                  Yes, I updated it.  I got confirmation from the Ontario Lottery that all the games are ball machines-drawn.

                  What grade did your lottery earn?
