Hello posters, this is my first post. I wanted to ask everyone, how does this new game affect the time limit of the nighttime TV drawings, will more time be added to the TV drawings or not if the game is drawn by a machine for the televised drawings?

Can anyone provide me with some information  on this?

      Sounds great, wow, is it computerized?

      Not that it matters to me very much but it should to those that might gamble on this one.  I've looked on-line a bit and can't find out whether or not it is a computerized drawing.

      So I conclude they are playing (hiding) down the fact it is another POS RNG game!  People will put money into the lottery coffers unknowningly gambling on a computer program.

      No No

            The PA Lottery changes games and formats so often that John Kerry must be in charge over there. "I voted for the Mix & Match, before I voted against it in favor of Quinto" - or are they keeping Mix-Match? Or is it Match-6 or something??? Oh, wait, that's the game where you can match 10 numbers but only on some tickets being 6 numbers are actually drawn. I think every few months there's a new game and another is dumped. Notice also that the games seem to be (except maybe this case?) to be rehashed from previous games. Lucky For Life is/was just another 6-ball Lotto and Match 6 QPs the 2nd and 3rd lines like Super 6 did. The Midday Pickit and Pick-5 (Treasure Hunt) is computerized but not the Evening Pickit or Cash-5. I need special algorithms just to keep track of what games they have at any given moment! But then again I'll probably play it a few times while it's still there.

              Does anyone know how the numbers would be drawn, via computer for the mid-day, mechanic for the nighttime television drawings and if that's the case, would the drawing show be expanded to include this new game?

                I presume it will carry the computerized draw for daytime and the ball feature draw for evening?

                I read the retailer site and it didnt clarfiy to well how the draws will go, nor does it have the ways to win....

                Very vague at this point to make an informed decision if this game will last or worthy of playing.

                Well if the game is drawn manually for the nighttime drawings, then more time might be added for the televised drawings correct?
