What a joke! 

We tested it and got doubles.  Opps...it turns out the programmer made a mistake and programmed the computer so that it couldn't produce doubles.  Oops again...the security person who checked our infalable program missed the programming error.  OK..now we fixed the problem that we said could never happen in the first place by hiring another programmer from the same company that made the mistake in the first place. 

Presumably they are hiring another security expert from the same company who missed the mistake in the first place to check the new and improved infalable program.   

This whole Tennessee mess amounts to nothing more than the Hoosierization of the Tennesse Lottery.

I wonder if there are certain Hot Trax combinations that can't win as well...What?

    Just a point about programming; if no one is watching the watcher watching the programmer, anything can happen.

          Seventy per cent of the players purchase QP's.  While this trend continues, any lottory will do whatever they want and the public can kiss their glass.

          In the years prior to Tennessee getting a lottory, I said often that Tennessee will get a lottory as soon as the politicians figure a way to skim money off the top.  By going to RNG they have found the way.  Tennessee has shown for all the world to see that RNG numbers can be rigged; there is no security; take it or leave it.  As for me, I am leaving it but my moving on will not affect the 70% that use QP.  Most player do not know how or when or where numbers are drawn; they just ckeck the morning papers to see if they won.  The Tennessee lottory knows this and acts accordingly. 

          I will go so far as to say that any state that uses a computer to generate winning numbers maintains the same attitude and gives the "winnings" to the "right" people.
