Do you think online Casino would continue to take bets on State games that they thought were rigged or fixed?


That's a bit of a "rigged" question, because if any knowledge surfaced that the states were rigging their games, then there would be reform, etc., ("everything will be fixed and audited"), and the offshore casinos would continue to take bets on them.

    Sure, Why not?

    Especially if the states are paying out on the combo that was purchased the least for the day. At any given time, a routine written in the program could look to see what was purchased the least and draw accordingly. It could do this for 3 way, 6 way, even triples. The program itself could choose the least purchased 6 way number for a couple of days in a row and then a 3 way number once a week or so to maintain the appearance of randomness. Throw a triple in every 200 or so drawings and you have a computerized drawing. Here in MO (computerized) we have had 3 back to back numbers drawn in the last 20 drawings. 934 was drawn twice, 185 was drawn 3 times and 622 was drawn twice all in different orders. They were literally back to back. Tell me that's normal...again that was all in the last 20 or so drawings.

    I'm not saying they are rigged but the potential to be rigged is staggering and would be so much harder to prove if it was...Look at the CA Derby scandal. I have a feeling that will be the first of many to be found out about in the near future.

    Have a Great Day,

        Maybe these high altitude gasoline prices will take care of the problem.  Those random number generators are bound to suck a lot of fuel, once you get them cranked up.  Not to mention the maintenance costs and the blushes when everyone's hanging around the TV waiting for the numbers and there's some guy pulling a starter rope and cursing in the back room.

        At least those ball machines don't require internal combustion engines.
