    How could 6 pre-draws possibly create a problem for you? Even if they gave you all 6 draws plus the real one, would you have ever hit all 6 numbers for a big win?

    I believe the strongest point to be made is not so much the winning, but the BS being shoveled out by gutless politicians who use lotteries as a major revenue stream because they don't have a clue how to fix the systems they have broken.  Therefore, they rig lotteries in such a way that they make sure they extract as much revenue from the players as possible.  I will concede that matching the 6 numbers is a major long shot, but hitting the lower tier prizes become nearly impossible as well.   If you want to attract more players, you have to throw them a bone every so often.  Also, by screwing over the system players, you are cutting off your nose to spite your face.

          You beat me to the punch. I was just about to say, especially people like ronnie, and others like me, system players who rely on patterns and trends, you'd think he'd realize what he is writing. Patterns get all discombobulated and trends and patterns mean nothing. Why bother playing?

                You are not addressing the point of the discussion.... explain the logic of the testing.  Can you address why it takes 4, 5, 6 tests to make sure a machine will work properly?  How about 1 or 2?  Using your logic, then that wouldn't make any difference either, right?  So why put more wear and tear on a machine and waste taxpayer money?  If the odds are so outrageous (which they are), then 1 test should do the trick, right?

                And back to the point of the thread, computerized draws is definitely NOT the way to go, right?

                  I believe, (correct me If I'm wrong), he did address that question. He's basically saying that the JP is a long shot and probably not show in the pre and post, but he did say that lower tier prizes might get affected.

                        You may be right "onlymoney", but I'm still waiting for some logic as to why it takes more than 2 pre-tests for any ball machine.  I would think that the pre testing is creating a higher risk of failure than the money draws.  And I also believe that companies like G-Tech use it as an excuse to charge higher fees to the states.  Yes, there must be some testing done, no argument there, but 6 tests, like the Texas Lotto does, is just wrong and it's not just for testing purposes, IMHO.

                          State run agencies will always err on the side of caution, and they are allowed to do whatever they want and neither do they care who wins or doesn't win, So 2, 6, 10..... whatever. It makes no difference.

                          Finally someone noticed the elephant in the room....... computerized draws are saving states money.

                              I think taking the risk of buying faulty tickets is part of the fun. Its ALL a gamble.
