Which state (or multi-state game) do you think has the most entertaining draw show. Hey, theres another reason balls are better. If they all went to computers, there would be no more Mike Pace, or Linda Kollmeier, or "YOLAAAAAANNNNNDA VEGA!" anymore. Just an automated voice like you find on airport trains.

<Realizes he's straying off the initial topic>

Anyway, which state has the best draw show?

    New York has a good one, but they spend way too much money on it.

    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.

      any state that isn't computerized has a good draw as long as those balls are in the air!

            I like VA lottery's draws they are pretty cool.  TN's are funny with Dollia Garcia.  She always messes something up.  I remember one time during a lotto 5 drawing she didn't know she was on and said Why is the TelePrompTer running?  And on another drawing she said if no one matches all 5 numbers the next Jackpot will be $300 million dollars.  lol of course she mean't thousand.  Hey that mess up increased lotto 5 sales a good bit lol.

            How are you going to win if you don't play?

              PA has a good nightly draw as well.

              Mike Pace is very hard to beat at the Powerball drawing.

              CA's Super Lotto Pud drawing is nice.

              OH has a nice draw show, especiAlly on saturday nights.

                Here is what makes a good draw show:

                 1.  Actual Ball Drawings (Duh!)

                 2.  A good draw host/hostess. (They bring in the viewers.)

                 3.  A nice, eye-catching set (This is where NY can be lacking at times.).

                 4.  Nice, colorful balls.  White balls are ok, but IL really had an idea when they started using colored balls.

                 5.  Not just picking the numbers and announcing them.  Lotteries should advertise for instant tickets, or announce the next jackpots dring the draw show.

                 6.  Not Yolanda Vega (Seriously, she can get annoying at times.).

                 7.  A little part at the end where the lottery encourages responsible gambling.

                 8.  A nice live, on-camera drawing error always helps (Anyone remember the one from 2002 in PA?).

                 9.   Cool-looking  draw machines (The crappy ones don't bring in viewers.).

                Anyone else have any other characteristics of a good draw show?

                  TN used to call a winner's name and city they were from for each drawing.  I really liked that.  It would be cool to have a marquee on the bottom of the screen with the names of recent winners.  (If they show off more winners they may have more players.)

                  How are you going to win if you don't play?

                    i think the reason the computerized drawings are in the states that they are is because people don't raise enough of a fuss or they just don't care how the drawing is conducted....

                        Maybe that's where money is going that should be used to pay NY Lotto prizesRant

                              Louisiana no longer does televised drawings.  They say on their webiste they quit doing them because of the cost.  We had a hostess named Juli Miller and she wasn't bad.

                              One time, when they went to do a Lotto drawing there were already balls in the bottom where the selected balls normally fell.  It turned out, they were testing the machine and setting up the cameras before the draw and forgot to put the balls back in the mixer.  They did the drawing later and it went OK.

                              I think they should bring back ball drawings, even if they don't televise them.
