    You never know. That's the horrible thing about computerized drawings, there's no transparency. They probably are running legitimate games, but the possibility if them being crooked is always there.

      Unlike televised ball drawings which would need the help of several people, computer drawings only need one person. That is the big problem is that you never really know if it's honest or not. Considering the small savings I don't think any lottery should make the switch. It will only take one scandal before all computer dawn games come into question by the public at large.

            LOTTOMIKE, my vote is yes. Most RNG computerized draws make it manipulated and make more jackpot winners happen.

              Last year there was a state assemblyman from Kent County (DE) that wanted to force the DE Lottery by law to go back to ball drawings. This was based on the fact that his/her believe that the reason for declining sales is because people believe the state lottery is rigged. He used the downfall of the Delaware Lotto game as a blatent example of where the believe comes from. Unfortunately, the bill was never voted on. One possible problem with it though is that it may have effectively killed any hope for a Keno game.

              For those who are unaware, Lotto didn't have any jackpot winners for a very long time, allowing the "ALL CASH" jackpot to go from $100K to over $7 million. One person won it all in the last drawing.

                Probably not for most but without a national audit commission to spot check them ... it could sure happen !!!

                    I'm totally against such a proposal. Last thing we need is another federal agency. Best way to protest such things is with your dollar. Don't spend it and tell them why. If they don't listen, they're fools. Of course, demanding the Indiana government take action against the responsible parties would be best course, but let's face it, that's not gonna happen.

                       True ...but look at the mess our lottery in North Carolina started with which now seems to reach all the way up to Jim Black,our Speaker of the house,and if the feds were involved I really think it would provide a certain number of safeguards that are not assured at the state level.

                        If the feds were the ones who "assured" us that games are legit, I doubt I'd buy another ticket.

                        The mess will merely be nationwide rather than select states.

                          Shocked How about a state commission made up of law enforcement officials who answer only to the Attorney General ?

                            How about just switching back to ball machines and have the drawings in a public place, with right to inspect the machines and balls after the drawing?
