Computerized drawings can ALWAYS be rigged. 

The Delaware Lottery is a case in point.  I have no proof, but every fiber of my being says that lottery is pre-programmed not to select numbers as winners that players have chosen.

What is the purpose of computerized drawings anyway?  I'll tell you: it has one purpose: to increase the state's profits through covert control of the number selection process against the grid of numbers or combinations selected by the players for each drawing.

Ok ok, call me paranoid. 

But to paraphrase a famous saying, just because I'm paranoid doesn't mean I'm wrong!

      I agree with that. Paranoia is perfectly fine when it comes to lotteries and having combinations recorded. I feel they should find another way to tell if a player has won the jackpot/if the $$$ will rollover, instead of recording our number combinations. But of course they won't. They care not for our concerns/paranoia, until their credibility has all but been stomped on. Some people will say I'm paranoid, but even with todays non-computerized lotteries, I feel something is fishy.

      I wanted to talk about true randomness. Now 2 brains are better than one, so lemme hear what y'all think. Ok, if the numbers are truly random, why don't we see more rare combinations like:

      NY Lotto for example

      32 44 47 50 52 59 - Sure lines like that have come out, but what I'm getting at is there are an equal amount of each decade # group. Most of what we see is a single digit in 1st position, then a teen or twenty in 2nd position, etc... If it is truly random, I think a whole line of any # group should come out more, right? The same goes for pretty much any other lottery matrix.

      9 11 14 18 19 54 This kind of line should come out more also if it's truly random, but like I said, the winning lines seem to prefer to be orderly with a single digit/teen in 1st position, then a single digit/teen/thirty in 2nd position.

      PS. A rigged lottery can still have REAL people winning. I would still think what I think today, if I won the jackpot! (I just would not care as much anymore). I also wonder why any/more lottery employees don't quit their job so they can play. Do they know something we don't?

          I'd guess that's the result, but not the purpose.  The purpose is ease of administration, not having to worry about security for the ball machines.  So they put in RNG, and try not to think about the vulnerability to someone rigging that.

          Then, someone in a small office somewhere who's sweating blood and bullets because the inflated billboard claims about the prizes being larger than they are still haven't got the grunts rushing out to buy tickets.  He wanders into his bosses office to brainstorm it a little, and two genius brains decide the state can come out better if the computer's tweaked just a smidgen.

          Humans aren't much good at big conspiracies.  Nobody who knows will keep his mouth shut forever.  But small conspiracies are easy, happen all time.  Small, stupid conspiracies of people doing things without a lot of heavy thinking up front.

                I see what you're doing nylottery. Does the state put you up to it?

                Your balls are hanging really low at this point.

                      Didn't Indiana already admit that they rig their pick 3/ pick 4 drawings so frequently played combinations don't appear?

                      NY Lotto is not worth playing, no matter how the numbers are drawn.

                        I'm really not being funny. I neither want to argue over this. If one cannot express his views on your forum, please Todd, add these types of comments onto your banned list of "what not to say".

                        If you're speaking of the balls hanging low comment, I will gladly stop that.

                              Yes, now I know what you're talking about. Before I thought it was the NY Lotto comment, cos you were not specific, and you had recently talked to CO about his comment on how bad NY Lotto is.

                              I do not weasel around. Now I know what you're talking about.
