    Seems if the Tennessee Lottery's integrity and transparency had been of utmost importance, Rebecca Paul Hargrove, would have immediately reverted back to ball drop drawings at the first indication of a problem.  Period, end of story.

    She is a seasoned lottery professional and she should have spotted the problem without having someone call it to her attenton. 

    Now it appears as if she's attempting to defend a cover up  ... cover her behind, her bonus, her exorbitant salary, her greedy decision which was based on money alone.

     

    Play your lottery dollars in bordering states, and good luck when you do!!   Party

    Good luck to everyone!

      Could you or someone else give me a link to where you found out where it specifically states that the lottery said there were doubles drawn during the time of the glitch?

      I was referring to the email KY posted and as you can see, somebody from the Tennessee Lottery lied. The on-going theme in every email response I read was "maximizing dollars for education". When people buy PB or MM tickets are they doing it to benefit education or are they really trying to become multi-millionaires?

      It's just my opinion but I believe the decision to have a daily live Pick-3 drawings using three sets of balls in a clear bingo/keno type machine was made because the lotteries were competing with the "street numbers" game at that time. I'm talking about the Pick-3 games that started over 30 years ago not the new kids on the block that hired slick talking professional lottery directors. Having a live drawing is the best way to prove drawings are honest. Are players really asking too much because they want the opportunity to see the numbers drawn by a live TV drawing?

      As a smart business move, live drawings are really 30 second commercials touting other lottery games. If players tune in a couple seconds late and miss the drawing they have to hear about the latest scratch-off games hoping the host will repeat the numbers before the time is up. When you weigh the cost of live drawing to a computer drawing, it's obvious the lottery could save money until they have to find other means to advertise their games. The TV stations probably charge the lottery less for those 30 second spots because they know it will bring in added viewers.

      We've heard about Ms Hargrove because of all her screw-ups, but I wonder how many people in states with successful lotteries know the name of its lottery director?

        "She (Ms Hargrove) is a seasoned lottery professional and she should have spotted the problem without having someone call it to her attenton."

        That's only in states with small lotteries where the lottery director is not a political appointee. I'm guessing Ms Hargrove doesn't know how many Pick-4 combinations have matching digits.

        I was just looking at the payoffs of Tennessee's Lotto 5 game (5/39) where matching 4 numbers paid $114, matching 3 paid $7, and matching 2 paid nothing so compared to other state lottery 5/39 games, Ms Hargrove has done an excellent job of maximizing dollar for education though I doubt any seasoned lottery player would even consider playing that game.
