This is actually a good thing.

It shows that when there's a glitch in a ball machine it will usually be caught right away.

There could be glitches in the fake computer drawings all the time and we might never know about it.

    I Agree!
    Glitches are good from time to time.Funny how no one confesses to that over in this country.

      Yikes, if that happened here, there would probably be a riot.

        Texas is adding the "extra play" to its Lotto Texas game.

        dallas,

        If a player gets lucky and hit it thee's quite a difference in the payout.

        This is from last Wednesday night:

        Match 6$5.8 MillionRolling Jackpot$1 wager
        Match 5$1,206$1 wager
        Match 4$32  $1 wager
        Match 3$3$1 wager
        Match 5 + Extra Shot$0$2 wager
        Match 4 + Extra Shot$800$   2 wager
        Match 3 + Extra Shot$75$2 wager
        Match 2 + Extra Shot$10$2 wager
        Match 1 + Extra Shot$2$2 wager
        Match Extra Shot only$5$2 wager

        About a month ago someone had hit 5 of 6 with the Extra Shot and won $45,000. Without Extra Shot the 5 of 6 paid around $1100.

        There's no choice in the numbers, it's an automatic QP. If you hit 0 and have the Extra Shot it pays $5- If you have 1 and the Extra Shot it pays $2, figure that one out.

        Let's see if Texas does the same.

        Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

        Lep

        There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

          "This meant that the first set of numbers — 3,8,11,26,32,40 and 9 — were void. The actual winning figures were 16,21,23,29,31,38 and 24."

           

          When asked if the bonus ball from the first drawing was legit the announcer replied "nine" further adding to the confusion.

                    How unfortunate, for sure a lot of players were disappointed. I don't know what will I do if they announced my numbers and suddenly tell me that the numbers were wrong. I might be at my boiling point.
