I understand HL now has computerized draws, which probably started since the beginning of this year. While I am not as critical of computer drawings as some other LP members, I will stop pushing this game.

    Where is that information published?

      There is a poll in the Discussion forum about HL. The third post in the thread mentions this.

        Whats the deal with people and computerized drawings?  As long as proper security is used, I don't see the problem.

          I'm talking about any kind of real information, published by MUSL.  I have never heard about this, so I would need to see something from MUSL before I would believe it.

              there are big problems with it tony....trust me i don't think you'd buy anymore lotto 5 tickets if you found out tennesssee went computerized.trust me on this one.they don't have ball drawings they'd have a computer that is vulnerable to all kinds of mainpulation that would spit out all kinds of crazy combinations.they'd be able to manipulate it where they could look at all the bets made and program the computer to spit out the numbers nobody bet on to drive the jackpot up and raise more money for the lottery and nothing for the players......

                Maybe that's why the jackpot is so big.

                I've redone my website.  Go to www.dr-ew.com.  I kept a lot of the old stuff, and I've added some new stuff.  Look for more new stuff in the coming weeks.

                    For me, it really isn't so much a matter of trust, but rather the fact that a cartoon drawing isn't any fun to watch. Half of the reason I play is so I can watch the balls drop my way (not that I have to buy a ticket to watch the drawing, but still). And without those bouncing or spinning balls on TV, it just kills it for me. Now I will play a computerized game, but it has be really special, like DC Daily 6 or KY Tic Tac Cash. But if it's just another same ole', same ole' game that's drawn with a computer, it won't be playing it, because the exciting part has been taken away.

                      I'm not happy that Hot Lotto went to computerized drawings. Yesterday, I went to MUSL Hot Lotto video Archive of the draws, after 6/1/05, it never showed the video. The ball machines in Hot Lotto was fair enough for me to support the ball drawings, not computerized.

                        Not sure if you all saw this post in another thread:

                        http://www.lotterypost.com/thread/128106/537859?q=%22hot+lotto%22

                        Also, this computerization of Hot Lotto and Wild Card 2 really hurts some states in the State Lottery Report Card.  For example, the state of Montana dropped from an A+ to a C.

                        I really hope MUSL does not have plans to change Powerball to the dreadful computerized drawings.  That would be an utter disaster.

                            I agree with you Todd. I don't want computerized drawings in Jackpot games such as PB, MM, and CA SLP.

                              I did finally analyzed when the last HL drawing wasn't computerized. It was on 1/28/06. Then the first computerized drawing in HL began on 2/1/06. I'm not happy that HL was computerized.
