I think MM should change their ball machine in order to eliminate difficulties. Tonight's MM draw had a technical difficulty. After it was fixed, the auditor gave us the winning numbers.

    I would far rather deal with the occasional breakage of a machine than a computer RNG I wouldn't trust.

        I don't like Random Number Generator draw the auditor did in the last draw. I think MM ball machine needs to be fixed before they do announce the draw. Besides, MM Jackpot did roll to 31 million when I expect someone to win. I hope someone wins MM Jackpot before it hits 50 million either on 8/1 or 8/4.

          I'm pretty sure the RNG draw the auditor did was not connected to the computers that record combinations played. RNG's are not so bad if the computers used to draw the numbers are isolated from the internet and other computers used by the lotteries, and I'm pretty sure there's a way of proving that (else the draws would be declared "unauditable" by the auditors, and they'd disclaim an opinion).

            I don't play Mega Millions, but I would hate to see the game become computerized. I think that would be a huge mistake.

              I would be disappointed if MM goes to a random number generator or be computerized. How many ball sets does MM have currently?

                I don't think MM or PB will go to RNG draws anytime soon. Of course MUSL Hot Lotto went to computerized drawings this year.

                  CASH Only, after the technical difficulty draw, MM jackpot was won in NY with 14-29-32-43-49 MB 14. I hope that MM and PB continue to stay with ball drawings, not RNG. However, MM needs more ball sets. How much does a ball set cost in the MM game? PB game?
