i don't get what the big deal is with computer drawing, it's still random, it's like a slot machine, a slot machine is random.  But i think if someone really wanted to they could hack into the comuter and manipulate the drawing, but i don't think that would happen.  And there is a problem with ball drawing.  When they are getting the machine ready for the draw it takes like 2 hours for tests and everything.  Just think about all the combinations that come out of the machine when they are doing the tests that we don't get to see,  so the number combination that you are playing may have already come up when they did the test, and that combination may never come up ever again.

Sorry JackpotPlayer,

But slots are not random either. (If you are talking about the modern ones) My buddy owns a couple of them. You go into the system and set the computer to whatever you wish for payout? 30%, 40%, 90%, 10%...The only thing random about slots is who is sitting there when the machine has pulled in enough money to pay out it's 30%. Then it goes to collecting again. If it was random there would be a on/off switch only. Not the 3 menu screens that have to be set up before you put it out for the public to play on.

    It's all RNG except MM.

    All games are random noise generators except for MM?

    I'm shocked.

        Oh, Bryan was only talking about Washington State.

        That's a nifty link.
