    I'm not sure it would be a 'tragedy' by the standards I usually set for the word, but I'll like it less than I'd like to see ball drawings continued.  Which, I don't believe, will influence the inevitable move in the direction RNG drawings.

    We can buck and rear, but in the end we'll all tame down and keep buying tickets.

      Here's to keeping ball/machine drawings over computerized drawings.

      That said, in my opinion, there is little difference in ball/machine randomness and computer randomness. Whatever is unique within either type drawing platform remains domainly consistent.

      However, consider all the different ball/machine combinations that Florida utilizes within the Florida Fantasy 5 drawing platform. Total chaos is created within the established lottery pool continuously because of massive ball/machine switching. There is little if any consistancy within this platform.

      Unexpectedly, there appears to be less chaos generated by computerized drawings. The distribution of numbers appears to be more uniform and flatline.

      Once a lottery pool is established, comparable consistancy can then be expected whether it is ball/machine, or is computerized.

      Good luck,

        It would be a tradegy that all lotto draws are computerized. I wished that almost all the draws are going to a ball machine random draw because computerized drawings means fewer winners and bigger jackpots.

          That's a novel idea.  I hope you'll expand on it.

            I think North Carolina will use balls, but Oklahoma's a tough one.

              Most definitely. They want to do it the cheapest way possible.

              Another good poll may be "Will new lotteries broadcast their drawings?"

              I think this is another thing on the way out.

                  Yeah, but that's the kind of thing they don't want. And that's the kind of thing we don't want them to know. Besides, I've tried getting patterns with gravity-pick machines, and it's plumb near impossible.

                      I don't really think that everyone involved in lotteries has their eye's totally closed so to speak, to not see whats happening to the state lotteries that have computorized drawings. the people who have played on a daily basis are not doing this since some states have changed.

                      I for one, have played the lottery for a good many years, and if the State of NJ., ever changed I would for a fact stop playing the pick 3 and pick 4 games. I would only play Mega Millions. Computorized drawings are a negative draw...!

                      I almost feel like these constant polls on computerized drawings are setting up a self-fulfilling prophecy.

                      If you don't want computerized drawings, then don't go around like Chicken Little saying the sky is falling.

                      Just be vigilant and firm that it never does happen.  Convince people when the issue comes up, but don't keep bringing it up like it's a foregone conclusion.

                      Chill.

                        Thank's Todd i tried several times to let them know that posting stuff about it is like advertising for it. Putting up a wet paint sign and so fourth. Implanting the idea in any suspecting lottery personel that might wander in. Then if it happens to their state they'll be crying i don't know why it happened. It's not that any of these threads would cause a state to change but it's like planting a seed though sometimes they sprout sometimes they don't.

                        All i know is if i was so opposed to comp drawings i wouldn't put the idea into anyones head about it. They got to be kidding themselves if they think lottery personel aren't scaning these threads.

                          this poll here pretty much exhausts the subject at hand.your right there have been different polls about computerized drawings but at least we know now what the general opinion is on these issues.i think its a pretty good poll to end the subject.i just hate the thought of america ending up getting cheated on the drawings.i hope the petition here puts a dent in those officials future efforts.i feel passionate against computerized drawings.i'll let the issue rest for now.....

                            I don't understand why there is such resistance to the computer draw. Is there reliable stats shows they result in fewer winners, and if so, why are there fewer winners? I would think it would be about the luck, not the vehicle. I only look for the numbers the next day, not how they got there. Its like wheter its important if the odds are 200M to 1 or 250M to 1; doesn't impact my bet. I feel it is all about the luck. Numbers are only numbers. Kuck is the only variable.

                            Cheers

                              I'm not sure why "Kuck is the only variable", as you say, but apparently you have not read, or have not taken seriously, all of the many arguments against computerized drawings.

                              Recently, companies that produce the computers and software for these terrible computerized drawings have started to notice that there is a groundswell against their product.  Thus, they have started a concerted effort to post supportive messages about computerized drawings, hoping to make it seem that they're not so bad.

                              They try to do the same thing you're doing in your message, which is to simplify the argument into one of "luck" (or "kuck").

                              It really does a disservice to the players when someone attempts to dismiss out-of-hand all of the problems that go along with computerized drawings.

                              I would recommend that you become more familiar with this issue.  I understand that sometimes people are frightened off by the technology discussions that come into play, but try to understand that there are larger issues that just plain luck.

                              After all, my entire career has been built around technology.  What incentive would I have to downplay computerized drawings?  I think computers are one of man's greatest achievements, but they are not the best way to draw lottery numbers.
