I do know that the FL lottery does have the Fantasy 5, Mega Money and the FL Lotto televised by either live or taped telecasts. But I am trying to find out if anyone has seen the daily Pick 3 & 4 draws live or taped for that day of drawing.

      In checking that link Carbob, I don't see ball sets for the daily games.

      Possibly more proof that a change was made.

        If I remember correctly they never showed machine/ballsets for the Pick-3/4 games

          "We don't even get the knowledge of where the larger winning game tickets are sold any more from the web site."

          This information is always available in the Media section using the link to press releases. Last night the $10 million winner was in Tampa and used a Quick Pick.  I like the way the new design shows not only the big winner, but how many people won the lower tier prizes. Before it would only show the dollar amount. There are many changes, but basically the same information is available on the site.

              I really "LIKE" the New Website I think it's a nice upgrade from the way the old one looked

                OK, so it looks like a false alarm.  From the links posted earlier in this thread, it's obvious that they are still broadcasting the drawings live, and all the same ballset info is still available.  It's just harder to find on their site.

                 

                Check the State Lottery Report Card

                  The only scam in the Florida pick-4 Lottery is a payout of $5000.00, when the odds are 1 in ten thousand.

                    And don't forget that the Cash 3 should actually be a $1,000 payout instead of $500

                      I just had a conversation with a representative from the local TV station in Fort Myers, FL that carries the FL lottery drawings. She expressed that they didn't have any plans to start showing the pick 3 & 4 drawings anytime soon. They will continue to show the numbers at the bottom of the screen though. In her explanation of why they don't show the drawing, she said that it was because of advertising spots at that time and they had to show those over the drawing. She could not give me a reason why the other 5 & 6 ball games are shown live, later in the evening though.

                      She did assure me that the satellite feed to their station from the FL lottery is in fact live and that it is a ball machine drawing.

                      I want to thank those of you who had input in this thread. It appeared to me as a funny coincidence that they web site changes and the live drawings stop at the same time! Maybe it was just fear: False Evidence Appearing Real.

                        inittowin,

                          Thank you very much for that info. My only concern was that the lottery had tried to pull a fast one and switched to computers. I, would still like to get an lottery spokesperson to verify that info. It seems strange to me, that a number of TV stations in Florida , because of ads, quit showing the drawings.

                          But then they wouldn't make any money.
