It's not for sure, but Chuck says that they've designed an RNG that uses radioactive material and Geiger counters to generate random numbers. And while that's better than a software-based system, I don't know if I can trust something that causes cancer to pick those numbers. Hey, those Halogens do a pretty good job with Powerball. That game is very tough to crack. I guess I do feel a little better knowing they're using a naturally-occuring process instead on a computer program, but balls will always be the most trustworthy way of conducting draws.

      You're still betting that this game won't happen. MUSL is seriously working on this game, and it could very well happen. But hey, you might be right, and who would be laughing then.

        Let's hope, for everyone's sake, that he does NOT use computers, no matter how "random" they appear.  The case against computers is not solely one of randomness.
