computerized,  so isn't it inevitable that lottery numbers will soon be computer generated rather than physically drawn from a batch of numbered pingpong balls?

The switch from lever pulls to screen touches hasn't stopped anyone from feeding money into those slot machines. I'm afraid the same will be true when the PB and MM draw machines are retired. People will still buy tickets no matter how it's done.

    Nothing is inevitable.

    Inevitablility is for those who let others make their decisions for them.

    As far as slot machines are concerned, I do not play them, specifically because I know that they are all rigged to have specific payouts.  If they were truly random then I would consider playing them.

    Are you saying that we should all allow the government-run lotteries to be on-par with a Las Vegas Casino?  Or would you rather have the integrity of the government-run lotteries remain beyond reproach?  Personally, I prefer the latter.
