        Never underestimate how much damage control Rebecca Paul Hargrove has been doing to prove her bulldozing computer draws through was the perfect decision because it generates more money.

        Write, call, email your lawmakers and let your voices be heard loud and clear.  Keep after it again and again and again until you get ball drawings back for good!!!!!! 

        Good luck to everyone!

          All lotteries that want to respect their players need to have mechanical ball drawings that are televised or at least make the drawing video available on the internet. I can't see why lotteries don't see that. I think the Lotterypost's grading method is a fine example of those lotteries that want to respect their players and those who don't.

            If they switch back to ball drawings I would "bet" that sales would increase for Cash 3, Cash 4, and lotto 5.  I could start playing Lotto 5 again.  Hard to believe that game was voted one of the best in the country here on LP a while back.  It went down the poop hole on July 28, 2007.  However, we can still bring back a good game if the appropriate actions are taken.  I support these guys!  Bring it back!

            How are you going to win if you don't play?

                I was happy to read that the Tennessee legislature has introduced a bill to bring back the ball system.  I think Rebecca Hargrove should be fired immediately.  I live in Alabama and I have stopped playing the Tenn. Lottery and started driving back to Georgia to play their lottery because I can trust their lottery system. 

                 I'm glad you're returning to the ball system so I don't have to drive so far to play an honest lottery game. 

                 I have a question though, how come the Tenn. Legislature can't order the ball system be returned without having to get permission from Rebecca Hargove?

                  When there is a problem, it is kept secret.  Stealing the players money is going on more than you think.  Rebecca Hargrove and our politicians are covering this up because they would loose millions of dollars.  There is the biggest cover-up going on with all the computerized games, especially powerball.  They choose which numbers will be picked, when, and where.  They choose the demographics when they get ready.  What is random about that.  Random to their choosing.  If they want the winner to be in Philidelpia this week, next week, or maybe the next.  It all depends on how much money they have ripped off the public.  Then and only then do they choose which state it according to their standards is to be won in.  So, what are the chances they will pick your state, your town, or your community.  It makes the odds even greater not to win than it already is.  Tennessee hasn't been to their choosing yet.  There must not be as much money raised in Tennessee to award them that privilege.

                    The main flaw in your logic is that Powerball is the one game that is NOT computerized.  If there is a game that has shown integrity through the years, it is Powerball.

                    Powerball is not run by the Tennessee Lottery.  It is run by the Multi-State Lottery Association (MUSL) in Urbandale, Iowa, and is the oldest multi-state game in the United States.

                    For all I know you may be right about the Tennessee in-state games, like Pick 3, 4, and 5.  But not Powerball.

                     

                    Check the State Lottery Report Card
                    What grade did your lottery earn?

                      It was voted the best game in America in that poll. And even then I couldn't understand why.

                        Technically, Tri-State Megabucks is the first ever multi-state game.

                               I, for one, am pleased to find there are a few honest elected officials within our state government.  These people have the best interests of all Tennesseans in the forefront of their minds.  Thanks for your efforts in bringing back the balls.

                              I always said, beginning the moment Steve Cohen introduced legislation to bring a lottory to Tennessee, that Tennessee will get a lottory the moment policticians find a way to skim money from it.  Once we got the lottory I have waited for the scandal to erupt. 
                          When Hargrove went to cartoons, I figured the politicians finally found a way to milk the lottory and a scandal would not be too far off. 

                               So the way I figure it now, those in the legialature who voted "NO" to bringing back the balls will be the ones who are stealing the lotto money.  I can't wait to see who votes "NO" on this one.

                               For those interested, go to the web site.  Click on "WINNERS".  All you will find there are the people who won with scratch and sniff.  Where are the Cash 5 winners?  Do Cash 5 winners get to be anonymous?  Or should their names and photos be published, would some investigative reporter find a link between these winners and some elected official?  My vote is on the latter.
