I saw in the latest Smartplay newsletter that WA Lottery has Origin Draw Riggers, er, Computerized Drawing Systems. That brings another lottery who can't deal with having winners. I also saw the California has also purchased a Criterion II. Wether this is to replace the Halogens used for Super Lotto Plus is yet to be seen. Maybe they're un-computerizing Fantasy 5?

      Unfortunately, yes. All the more reason to spread the word about that petition.

        Well I don't think the states will change their minds. I find it strange that the same comany is involved with all of them. Seems like a large potential for a scam. Think I will just stick with mega and powerball then. Can't see the pick 3/4 crowd not being more upset at this though.

            does anyone know where to find video footage for FL's drawings, or any states drawings for that matter.

            I've redone my website.  Go to www.dr-ew.com.  I kept a lot of the old stuff, and I've added some new stuff.  Look for more new stuff in the coming weeks.

                Even Powerball is thinking of going computerized though, and I bet if Powerball goes through with it, Mega Millions will follow.  Soon you're going to have to play with computerized drawings or not play.

                      Well in case you missed it, Arizona also went computerized. But that happened a couple of months ago. I haven't heard anything about any other states going the Jack Barry-Dan Enright route (if you know about the 50's game show scandals, you'd understand what I mean).

                        I fear Georgia and West Virginia coud be in danger of going computerized. They don't have a lot of in-state games.

                          kinda scary it really is,i guarantee you this once long time ball drawing states like virginia and georgia go computerized the lottery as we know it will never be the same.i hope this computerized nonsense would go away but i know it won't.if tennessee goes computerized i think i'll bow out and find other ways to spend my dough.
