The "boogieman" is the fact that the same computer system  gives you its quick picks, tabulates the quick picks and all other picks made for that draw and then at drawing time that same system makes the picks.

The player is not the boogieman in this scenario, the state running this type of lottery is.

Posted 4/6:  IL Pick 3 midday and evening until they hit:  555, 347 (str8).

    A golfer would call him the "BOGEYman".

      also its not a coincidence that states with computerized drawings have less payouts than states with ball drawings,the main reason being is that with computers you and i both know that states can use these to keep track of the numbers and just program the computer to pick numbers that were bet on the least or not at all,thus making the maximum amount of money each day while paying out very little in winnings,just think indiana has this down to a very fine science.....the art of cheating players.

        I would like to see what the payouts in Maryland are each day. We have the ball machines and see the drawings live, but the only payouts that are given to us are from the Lotto drwing 6/49 and the megamillion drawings. Which are usually pretty low payouts here.

          all computerized? never... I would give up then.

          PA has computer draws daytime 3/4 and ping pong balls for evening 3/4/cash5/match6/$36,000 a year BEFORE taxes for 28 years... a.k.a. "lucky" for life/Powerball (not PA and better NEVER go computerized!)

          Playing more than one ticket per game is betting against yourself.

                          Based on the results of PA's draw results, I think that I would prefer the computerized drawings

                           

                          Besides, I use computer software programs to help in my picks

                            I would continue to play, I do not want Texas to become computerized. I play states that are Delaware and California. I hit on both of these and in PA as well. I am a firm believer that certain numbers follow each other no matter what. Using a computer to pick the set or ping pong balls and I prove it by winning...........................................Joy

                              I don't think that's a problem here in Norway.

                              The state lottery is proudly presenting their draws on a 10 minute show each wednesday(VikingLotto) and saturday (national lottery).

                              I think they know people want to see the draws on TV. They even got the draws available to watch as web-TV on the website.

                              Web-TV draws. It's after the Joker draw.

                              (Think it only works with Internet Explorer)
