The glitch, however, was discovered by an observant player while it was overlooked by officials with the Arizona Lottery.

And did people lose their jobs?, where were the people running the daily audits and pre-test drawings. what the hell were they doing? Almost EVERY glitch ever caught has been reported by players. I have read that over and over again..

as said earler...

Hello! use balls! no longer a problem for such malfunctions...you brain damaged bunch of retards...

Reminds me of NASA spending multi-multi-thousands of dollars to create a pen that would write in space.... the Russians used a pencil. duh!

      He doesn't have any balls to address the issue; no wonder he favors RNG.  Time to go to a fast food place and keep that weight on.  It's a shame that the Feds don't investigate RNG/computer glitches.

        They knew from the second drawing with players calling and emailing them about it. They only did something when it effected other states. Arizona doesn't conduct it's own drawings. It's all done by Third party. which upon Arizona residents realize it will revolt due to the law saying it must be held here not in another state.

          Out of curiosity, where in the ARS does it state it has to be held in AZ?  I would be very surprised if it wasn't vetted through the AG's office first.

            Speaking of balls, (pardon the pun), I just noticed that the number 34 hasn't come up in PowerBall numbers in over a year.  And also the PB number 14 hasn't been pulled in over a year.  Due?  If I am wrong, I do apologize.

              5 will get you 10, he's a democrat. That being the reason he's not embarrassed.

              The only way this is going to change is through the players.

                Administrative Director - Committee on Arrangements Committee Week

                Republican National Committee - 2008 Republican National Convention

                April 2008 – September 2012 (4 years 6 months)

                In 2008, I served as the Committee on Arrangements'​ Administrative Director for events at the Minneapolis Convention Center. In that capacity, I managed the physical coordination of the Republican Party’s Platform, Rules and Credential Committees. My team facilitated the distribution of the convention credentials and the transportation department’s vehicles.

                Staff Lead

                White House Office of Advance

                January 2001 – January 2009 (8 years 1 month)

                From 2001-2009, I routinely served as the lead advance representative for President George W. Bush on foreign and domestic trips. In that role, I was directly responsible for all movements and interactions of the President. I worked closely with White House Staff to develop events and communication opportunities to deliver the President’s message for that trip.

                That is part of Edgar's resume...You welcome.

                  Just because something is online does not make it true. That 2nd part of his resume is overhyped and the secret service would tell you they supervise the movements of the president.  I think he was a glorified conference and logistical planner.  He scheduled meetings. He sounds like a loose cannon. And for "that trip" meaning a one time thing? Lol I think the Republicans kicked him to the curb.

                      Seems pointless to focus on the credentials of the AZ Lottery director. Party affiliation and all that is even more silly. Of course he's PR driven. Most executive directors are; mouthpiece of the agency. Much of the decision making is coming from elsewhere, in particular, lottery consultants and vendors that perform much of the day to day operations of the lottery.

                      Players aren't going to effect much, if any change, barring some organized actions (protests, boycotts, etc) that potentially endanger sales. Sure, awareness is a good first step, and LP and other venues, help in that regard.

                      Legislation requiring ball draws could be effective. Though, that's a steep hill to climb due to gaming lobbyists, backed by lots of cash, who seemingly prefer RNG.

                      However, a way that concerned citizens could drive change would be pressing lotteries to release details of RNG machines and source code. There have been so many instances of faulty RNG machines and programming. Presumably, the industry doesn't want too much revealed. Hence, given enough public pressure along with FOIAs (freedom of information act) requests throughout the country, many more lotteries would likely relent and switch to ball drawings.

                          I agree but a certain member repeatedly tries to start political based arguments. The Director's repub credentials did not qualify him for the job anyway but his private pr practice and cfo experience likely did.

                              Maddog was the one who mentioned Edgar being a  Democrat. I was merely " correcting" him. There is zero mention of Edgar doing any political work for or with Democrats. So there...
