 lottobrainSmyrna, DEUnited StatesMember #10074January 1, 2005362 PostsOffline June 11, 2005, 12:51 pm⮟Recently I was discussing lottery play with a KY player and after going to the Kentucky Lottery website and looking up the numbers that had his this year, I was surprised to see how many numbers seemed to repeat during a week and how many triples had hit there so far this year. It made me feel that perhaps the day draw was by RNG and therefore, it was like having two separate pick 3 games in the state which I thought might account for the increase in the triples. In the first 5 months of 2005 thre have been 6 triples.....0s, 1s, 2s, 3s, 4, and 7s. I tried to do a little research there and couldn't verify anything, but after seeing Todd's posting of the results of all state lotteries, I see that both day and night draws in KY are by ball machines.  Since the law of averages would say a triple once in 100 draws, this is pretty amazing.......5 months at apprx. 60 draws per month = 300 draws/6 trips= 1 in every 50 draws!

Make sure you pick the same quantity of numbers that you chose in Section 2. Or choose the Quik Pik option.4.Then, mark the box corresponding to the number of consecutive draws you wish to play in Section 4. Hand your completed playslip and money to the Quick Cash retailer.5.Every 4 minutes, 20 numbers from the field of 1 through 80 are selected and displayed on the Quick Cash monitor.6.You win based on how many numbers you match each draw.http://www.galottery.com/stc/games/quickCashKeno.jsp?focus=games Have fun and the best of luck to everyone!

 JimmySand9United StatesMember #1826July 11, 20032645 PostsOffline June 21, 2005, 7:20 pmThe bottom line is that balls should be used whenever practical. Every 4 minutes isn't practical, unfortunately, for balls to be used. (insert signature here)
