I am confused. There is alot of negative talk about computer RNG's. Is there a difference between computer RNG's and RNG's - lets say on LP or , and if so - what is the difference?

    Ther are all kinds of random number generators.

    My understanding is it utilizes the math coprocessor inside the computer.

    A random number gernerator can be set up/programed to do all sorts of functions. here is a link to studies on RNG's

    Big John says. You don't hit the number. The number hits you!!!!

      I don't think you are understanding the difference between the RNGs used for Quick Picks (to pick numbers to play) and the RNGs used for the drawings of some games.  They are completely different.

      I don't think anyone expects the lottery ticket machines to have little lottery ball drawing machines inside of them every time you want to play Quick Picks, but I do think most people expect the lotteries to conduct real and fair drawings using mechanical ball machines.

      I would recommend that you spend a little time reading the petition for some education on this issue.

       

      Check the State Lottery Report Card
      What grade did your lottery earn?
