KyMystikal makes a good point.  The ATM you pull cash out of is a computer, computers tally your cost at the grocery store.  We rely on machines for most everything any more. 

Computers aren't the problem...

And they never make mistakes? A computer by it self is nothing! It's the programming, by a human, that controls the computer. The data in, determines the data out... This is why i don't like or trust computer draws! I prefer to see the ball machine on live tv.Thumbs Up

    I went to tn.gov website and sent an email to Gov. Bredesen voicing my concerns and requesting the state toreturn to the original drawing process.  I received a reply in less than a week.  I encourage others to do the same.

      "He plans to introduce legislation early next year."

      Early next year?! We can't wait that long. We have to strike while this fiasco is still fresh in everybody's minds.

      Your 100% right! Now we all know who to send our complaints to. Call him, email him, send him letters... "House Minority Leader Jason Mumpower" 

       

      "He said the education of Tennessee's kids makes the measure necessary"

      This shows his concern about the loss of income from lottery sales. Continue to make'em pay by not playing until the ball machines are brought back.

        80 Thousand?? For $80.00 only I could have fixed the RNG program. Seems that they used the same code to generate the Pick3/4 as the Jackpot games and forgot to advise it that only Jackpot games have to flag off the numbers once they're called. Too bad if they go back to ball drawings now that we're getting such a great education on how their programs generate their drawings. I am guessing the next thing would be a Pick-5  or -6 type game with repeating numbers in the same draw?

        HINT: if you see a certain number i.e. "4" comes up often or is due on the 3 or the 4, use the same one i.e. "04" on the Jackpot games. This can probably apply to most RNG games! Unfortunately only for numbers under 10.

        I can just imagine also, a Jackpot drawing with "00" drawn or where no numbers can be above "09"?

          I Agree!

          With computer draws there is nothing to see. The first problem was really same as mixing ten balls numbered 0 to 9 in one machine and drawing three balls.

          It's still gambling even though they tell us over and over again the profits go to education but when players distrust the outcome of any gambling game, they stop playing.

            Actually the next problem we'll probably see is Pick 5 results with repeating numbers -- some "technician" will see that there are no doubles being generated! LOL

              This is the second time in articles posted in LP concerning the TN Lottery's conversion to computer draws where customers "seem" to universally agree that the conversion was a bad idea - but even with the bad news about the glitches since then, they continue to play. Doesn't sound "universal" or "unanimous" to me.....

              And, before I get jumped on, I prefer ball drawings myself.

                It's a valid point, but people are playing a lot less.  Check out the stories and you'll see that sentiment many times.  Either way, it has got to hurt.

                  I noticed the same thing, but I also noticed that the payouts are lower. I'm not sure if that is because less money is played or if people are still playing and just can't beat those computers. Something I don't understand is why TN moved the lottery drawings up but still can't get the winning numbers out by the times they used to with the ball drawings? Did they move the drawings up because it takes longer for them to fix the drawing? Also as Todd said some people are playing less. I used to play everyday now I play every once in a while and no more then $1.00 per draw. If I wanted to give my money away to some computer I'de go to the local arcade and play video games.

                  I love doubles and remember, it's just a game!!!!!!

                    Anyone ever heard of an application called: variable-tracs? As it appears they seem to do a lot more in the hidden arena as well. just think...Today may be"u" for "unique" or "r" for "repeat" numbers. I am in awe as to determine a "t" for "triples"...You now have a portion of their numbers operation and you now know how lottery drawings are controlled when generated by the computer. I say ball drawings are not that dissimilar...Those magnets must be real cheap. One thing for sure. It is clear that lotteries are a combo design issue. As for payout regulation, I have always accused the State Lottery Planners of being greedy. For example: Why does the Pick5 in Massachusetts, New York & Connecticut payoff on a first prize of $100, 000.00 and states like Maryland would payoff only $50, 000.00 and have more numbers in their drawings. It doesn't make any sense...Also, don't forget those stupid lotteries that replaced lotteries that were far better in prize payouts...They're stealing!
