I just received word that House Bill 1521 in Indiana to eliminate computer drawings has died. I am not surprised! I guess the thought of having to pay out too much money using balls was too much. Gee, all we want is fair drawing. This crap of paying out nothing on the daily games is ridiculous! Give it a year or two and all the people will see the writing on the wall. Eventually, everyone will question the integrity of the Hossier Lottery. It is a shame isnt it. If I werent Bankrupt and had the money I would move. I havent checked yesterdays pic4 yet, but I can pretty much bet there were no winners as usual. Where is all the money going?

    all the money is going into someones pockets,my guess is that there are some people on the inside lining their own pockets and will continue to do so,i also think that these same people may have "influenced" some of these politicians and probably paid them pretty well to make sure the "problem" which was the bill would die so they could continue to get away with it.........they'll make a mistake dventually jeff and it'll expose them........

      You are right Mike. There are too many coincidences here. Too many to name. After everyone is broke and realize theres no chance of winning then sales will reduce to nothing.

            I think so too.

            LosingJeff, did you ever contact a TV news channel that has a reporter who does "Shame On You" types of investigating? Major media coverage talks, and I really don't think the Hoosier Lottery can walk the walk... unless even the TV Channel is on the take too.

                I just took a small look at New Yorks Win4 on straight winners dating from today to early2004. I didn't check every single day, but I checked enough. There's anywhere from 19 to 427 straight winners. Even though there's other factors involved like population, it still looks strange for Indiana to have ZERO straight winners, especially for midday AND evening. Those Hooiser people really have balls.

                  This country hasn't belonged to the people since the fifties.  Now that the ball is really rolling they can ignore just about everything we want unless the talk show wonks are chatting it up big time for ratings.

                    To bad the representitives of the people just seem to ignore them. Maybe they don't think it's important until sales drop.

                      We cant get anyone to take this story. Go figure, now I know why our state is in such bad shape. I only want a fair drawing using balls. By the way, remember I told you 0 straight winners on pic 4 midday and evening. Well that happened again last nite. The writing is on the wall.

                        That takes it too far.  There is a big difference between a dictatorship and our government - they don't belong in the same sentence. 

                        Our government is flawed, but there is no country or government on the face of the earth that is even close.

                          Here in GA we have some dreaded investigative reporters who have been responsible for implementing needed changes, even getting some much needed consumer friendly laws passed.  Perhaps if you contact one or more consumer advocate reporters in your area, laying out a detailed written report to them the you just might get some action.  I hope so for the sake of players.

                          A side note .... "A Current Affair" is making a comeback on FOX this Monday so contacting them may be a real option.

                          Good luck to everyone!
