the History Channel once ran a special on a guy who got people to play slots in vegas for him (he worked for the gambling commission) with a system he rigged into the machines, play an exact sequence of bets and a jackpot would result at a preset time... then he figured out the code to keno, they got caught breaking the bank in Atlantic City because he registered in the hotel with his real name, and the casino security chief remembered him as the one who tested their keno software...

I think if any lottery has a chance to be cracked, it will be an RNG one, because it has been done more than once in vegas apparently...

I would still drop PB if they dared switch

Playing more than one ticket per game is betting against yourself.

      If Indiana would switch from their present format, I think I would ... oh, wait ...

      Nevermind ...

          click on results in the blue menu bar on top of the screen and click state lottery report card.it will give a grade like a is good and f is bad.the same as a grade would be in school.computer draws have the potential to be manipulated and abused.ball drawings are the draws you can see on live tv....

            I voted "no....i i don't trust computerized draws."   I would have voted "HELL NO!!" (for extra emphasis), but that wasn't one of the choices.

            With no lottery here in Alabama, Georgia, Florida, and Tennessee are "my states," as far as playing the lottery goes. If any of those states tried to switch to computer drawings, I would join the fight against it.

              My vote is a definite no. I don't trust the computerized drawings because there would be more jackpot winners and less interest. I wished that CA had eliminated all the computerized drawings.
