I am in FAVOR of abolishing the Lottery and all those of participating states. I will be forth coming soon with my findings from an ongoing studying of the lottery drawings. Also do you guys find it ironic that their are only 1000 combinations for the pick three but yet triple digits and quadruple numbers are rarely drawn. Don't you think if you have two games per day for seven days a week, fourteen drawings a week, for three hundred and sixty five days a year you would at least see those type of patterns. In addition, don't you also find it a little "ponzi" that never in the history of the <snip> where drawings like 2-4-6-8-10-...Whole and even even or chronological numbers like 1-2-3-4-5-6 has never been drawn? Also, how is it possible that you can get the same pattern of numbers for the pick three/four, but yet cannot never get the same pattern of numbers for PowerBall, Mega or State games? Make you wonder right? Furthermore, if each states are using "SmartPlay" machines don't you think a uncontrolled machine has the possibility of popping the same pattern of numbers for a month straight considering its just "random" right? I guess this "SmartPlay" machines isn't so SMART! Actually they so smart they no NOT to draw quadruple, chronological and triple digits numbers.

If the lottery isn't rigged why do THEY need to do "pretest drawings?" My thing is this if they wanna pretest the balls to make sure the machine is properly functioning just USE blank BALLS!

The LOTTERY is FULL of %*%*

Guess your not a lottery player. So would your suggestion be that we all boycott the state lotteries, and just play our numbers with the illegal criminal

syndicates on the street like we did 50+ years ago?

At least the syndicates wouldn't be bothering you with those pesky pretest drawings, they would just be the "rigged ones".

You know, I can understand what you are saying, and how you are feeling. I know how you feel to play and play and play and not win. It is good to stop playing every so often. Once I completely decided I was done with the lottery. I told myself I am through. I was depressed I had gotten all 6 numbers correct but changed my mind at the last second and decided to go with other numbers and the ones I originally had all showed in the lotto every one of them. Yes its heartbreaking but I learned a big lesson. Anyhow I decided not to play anymore and then one day having no intention of buying a ticket I did and won a thousand dollars for a buck! So its ok to not play. Perfectly ok. And then if you feel like playig again. Thats ok too.

Your ther question. I will try t answer in a silly way.

The reason you dont see those types of numbers like 1 2 3 4 5 6 is the same reason you dont see 22 23 24 25 26 27 or 35 36 37 38 39 40

or 40 41 42 43 44 45 or 44 45 46 47 48 49

There is an area in randomness where certain things seem not to occur.

Like when the wind blows why dont we see 8 trees blow over all at one time and hit the ground exactly at the same time. Even in a hurican or typhon 8 trees if reviewed in slow motion do not hit the ground exactly at the same time.

Or why we dont see 10 house painters painting on the same block 10 different houses in a row on any given street and each of them had no idea that the other painters were going to be painting on that street that same day.

Certain coincidences do happen, yet not in large scale.

Though randomness appears to be random it isnt really truly random. Randomness does have patterns. Not like patterns that are done by design but patterns none-the-less

In Washington state 5 6 7 8 9 26 showed. So what you mentioned almost happened.

Also the same 6 numbers showed in 2 different drawings on two different days.

And the same 6 numbers that showed in Washington State also showed in Wisconsin all 6 the same.

And the same 6 numbers showing again this was once unheard of

But lately the same 6 numbers are starting to show again from time to time.

There are other times where all 6 numbers showed again. But its rare but it does happen.

The reason it happens is really only 3 reasons.

1 Thats how randomness works one in a rare blue moon

2 Random Number Generators have flaws and are not truly random

3 Someone at the Washington State lottery messed up and posted the wrong numbers by accident

And the director said just leave it alone and maybe we'll be alright.

Its not uncommon for a director too decide important decisions such as this. And never tell te public. Afterall they are the director and thats part of their job to decide what to do when someone makes a mistake and post the wrong numbers.

I know its possible to win 5 numbers right and tey will pay you. Just in case you dont think its possible.

Im not sure if the lottery will let anyone win 6 numbers right by chance unless they let you

See ultimately we the people do not have the choice. There is a saying that goes like this

He who has the gold makes the rules

So if the lottery is rigged you probably wont be able to prove it in your life time.

I probably could but Im not going too because well I dont want to die. And they would probably kill me.

If lottery winners get murdered then what would stop me from getting murdered if I expose a lottery is rigged.

Again I know you can get 5 numbers right because I have done that. And was paid.

Lets consider all the wonderful beautiful blessings that one could do for others with 7.5 million dollars less taxes.

Lets consider sick or ill loved ones who would be in the best hospitals money could buy with 7.5 millions less taxes

Lets consider all the wonderful beautiful blessings that one could do with this kind of money.

Now lets consider giving it up.

One reason I see if its not a criminal.

We have all heard that MONEY IS THE ROOT OF ALL EVIL

but it isnt true

The saying isnt Money is the root of all evil

its THE LOVE OF MONEY IS THE ROOT OF ALL EVIL

So apparently this person isnt a person who loves money.

So this tells me it is a religious person possibly a priest, a paster, someone in the clergy.

Someone who has their perspective in order knowing that MONEY CANY BUY ME LOVE.

I know a man just like this. He was from Scotland and everyone knows wiskey is very pupular in scotland.

He was a pastor and went to a pub to pick up a fellow who called the pastor saying he was drunk and needed for him to come pick him up rather than drive drunk. So the pastor went to pick him up and at the end of the bar was a man like Bill Gates(not Bill Gates but very very wealthy)

He had heard of this pastor and heard of his reputation that he being full blooded scotish had never once touched liqior to his lips

So the rich man offered him 1000\$ dollars to have one shot of wiskey, and the pastor declined. So the rich man uped the antie and said 5000\$ the pastor declined.

At this time the entire pub was watching. The rich man could not believe anyone could turn away 5000 so he uped it to 25,000\$ and it was declined

and eventually offered him 1,000,000\$ one milllion dollars

The pastor stopped and looked at all the people watching him and then said sir your money will do no good for me and said he will stick with his principles and declined.

No one could believed it.

The pastor walked out.

The next day the pastors church was flooded with people. Including every single person who was at the pub. More than any time in scotlands history.

And guess who els was there? The rich man.

The reason so many people showed up at his church was because the people thought if anyone could turn away that much money they could be trusted with their lives because they were not motivated or moved by money.

That church became one of the biggest churches in scotland.

This was a pastor you could trust. He wasnt after your money.

It may seem dumb for anyone to pass up this much money. Yet some people believe it or not are not moved by money no matter how much it is.

Its somthing most of us simply dont understand.

The rich man donated to this church a very large sum also.

The love of money is the root of all evil.

Or maybe they are someone able to give it up because they are most likly older and might not have any family members left. And on the verge of death anyhow so decides to let the lottery keep it and be the ones who gives it away instead of them.

Why they bought the ticket in the first place might be a mystery. Yet one time in Chicago I think it ws a priest went into a convienient store and asked for directions and the clerk thought he said a lottery ticket and put it in his bag with the gum. And he said what is this? the clerk said its the lottery ticket you asked for. The priest said I didnt ask for a lottey ticket, and the clerk said well its alrady paid for and its yours.

The priest kept it and won the lottery in the next drawing with that ticket.

So its all up to the person if they want to keep the ticket or money. Its a personal choice.

The first story the pastor declined the money and it worked out for the better

The second story the Priest kept it but got the ticket by mistake and it worked out for the best.

Its a personal choice.

Maybe I read the story wrong but maybe the guy who bought the ticket died and the attorney who was representing him was trying to cash it in for him and keep the money but when they started asking the attorney questions he didnt want to answer them because if they found out the guy died and he was trying to cash in on the guys ticket he feared going to prison and said just forget it it aint worth losing my freedom over.
