The NJ Lottery broadcasts its evening drawings live on TV, and all drawings are broadcast live on the Internet.  No computerized drawings here.  Maybe that's why the games continue to be so popular in the state.

I disagree with you about the probability that moving to computerized drawings would not harm sales in Illinois.  Computerized drawings are horrendous, and many people (including myself) are far less inclined to play when they are used.  Perhaps you are not aware that Indiana switched from computers to real drawings for all numbers games because of the general outrage that existed for so long over the computerized drawings.

      I personally agree with todd--i don't belive any routine of code that simulates ramdom activity should be used for actual drawing!

      They will never be able to exactly simulate wind spun ball machines for the dailly machines. Wind vortex and shuffling are not equal ever.

      They want to get rid yet of some more jobs. increase the quanity of drawings for a supposed increase in funds. I will stop playing my cash for ever when they convert to eletronic drawings.

      Most do not know even the very basics of how trngs work --If they did they would not want it to be used. Even if they pass all stat tests which they never do. In some dimsion they allways fail.

      But the big boys want there pockets greased and filled with new increases even if its short term.

      Illinois is far in debt. And those in charge love to give themseleves raises.

      That 1 percent for schools never really went to any of my local schools. teachers pensions keep increasing taxes.

      it does nothing !

        They don't need to use a computer to have 4 draws a day.

        The day Texas stops real ball draws is the day I stop playing Texas lottery games.

        My...lots of things going on in Illinois. None of them good.

            IL Hit or Miss Game - I thought this game was Mechanical ?????  Read on........

            "A number of games, such as "Hit or Miss," exist entirely in cyberspace, with a random number generator housed in the Lottery's Springfield office conducting four virtual drawings each day"

            How  many winners have there been since Day 01 ???????  I never hear of anyone ever winning.  I would like to know how many people won the 12 of 12 or the 0 of 12 prize since Day 01.  As of this time, there have been 826 drawings.

            Some days it takes IL over an hour to Post the winning numbers on their web page.  Makes you wonder.........

            If a computer can keep track of the numbers that were purchased - where, when, time, numbers played. It can also tell you what numbers were not played at the time the RNG is put into play.  Would love to see the programming on this baby........................

              I hope Illinois Lottery fails in it's bid to bring these awful computerized drawings. We wouldn't want other states to draw inspiration from it.

                    Fake computer drawings?

                    It sounds like something that corrupt state would do.

                    Look for big smiles on a lot of Illinois politicians and Chicago mobsters.

                    Anybody who thinks those computers in Illinois won't be "adjusted" is nuts. It's a lock, guaranteed, done deal. 

                    I hope they crash and burn right after they go to fake computer drawings.

                          Complaining that Illinois politics/affairs of their govt. stink, is like complaining that your vacuum cleaner sucks. Hint, hint, it has been that way for ages.
