What is disgusting about it?  If it is true, than it is true...

Well....I don't really like the idea of "pre-determined" numbers. For all we know, they do a dozen or so tapings and select which fits their profit needs more.

    So true.

     

    When working at store, I dont play numbers that are repeatingly played by customers.  I may play around their numbers. I have better chance then..

    Another thing I do is my workout system prior to going to store.. Then play two of the most common played numbers that is either one up or one down from my own.. I use the quick picks too that people are getting. For instance if I give lots of  257 numbers as qps  I then play the 25  27  57 pair that shows up in my workouts..

            Let me put it this way - I suppose there are some people who really love their jobs. But to tell you the truth, even if I did work for the lottery, the last thing I'd want to do is come home and get on a lottery board!

                Yeah lottery officials are to blame but more to blame is whoever set the odds to be 146 million and something for powerball...I don't know if that was a lottery official job..But blame the lottery officials too because they were the ones to agree with all of it...

                My statistics professor once told me that they have on the internet the numbers most commonly played for pick3 and pick4...

                        How about:

                        Players cracking the lotto at LP = loss of revenue for the state = loss of job... ON the other hand

                        Stats or Spying on LP Members for game crackers = ensuring the continuation of the game + money for the state = keeping jobs....

                         

                         

                        "...If you think about it, the stock market and taxes are a form of lottery..."

                            This is a kind of interesting thread, and is one of those things where you either believe it or you don't, and there isn't much that the other side can say to sway your opinion.

                            So I'll just post my opinions, along with a comment.

                            First of all, there are many state lottery employees who browse the Lottery Post forums, which is good news for any players.  It means that those employess are listening to you.  They are here because they want to hear what you are saying.

                            Lottery Post is the largest lottery forum on the Internet, so what other site would they go to in order to listen to players?

                            Some of the comments made here insinuate that state lottery employees somehow manipulate the drawing results because people post predictions of what they're going to play, in order to limit the amount of the payout to players.

                            If you think about life as a state lottery employee, that really doesn't make much sense.  Whether you are saying that they do something small or something large to manipulate the results, a manipulation of the results is fraud, and that entails criminal penalties.  Does anyone really think that some state lottery employee would care so much abot you winning 500 bucks that they would risk being thrown in jail?

                            Do you realize that the number of people posting here is miniscule next to the overall number of people who play every day?  There are somewhere between 100 and 125 people posting predictions every day, and the overall number of players is at least in the tens or hundreds of thousands, maybe in the millions sometimes.  Do you really think that stopping you from winning 500 bucks is going to make a difference, knowing that they are only dealing with a small fraction of the player base?

                            On the other hand, you should be considering why they are here:  to listen to what you're saying. The fact that lottery personnel are listening means that the next time they make a change to a game, or add a game, or whatever, they will hopefully take our collective opinions into account.  So it's a good thing.

                            Lastly, here's the comment I promised.

                            This thread reminds me of an accusation thrown at me by Dawn Nettles, the Texas Lottery antagonist who was in the news a year ago.

                            Ms. Nettles is someone who appears to have started with a healthy skepticism of the lottery, but eventually began to see a conspiracy in everything they did.  At some point, she turned from a lottery watchdog into someone who leveled accusations any place she liked, regardless of proof or merit.

                            In my case, she first wrote me a note scolding me for not posting my name, address, and phone number on my web site.  I thought this was a little strange, but I explained to her that it is unwise for someone to post their personal information on their web site.

                            What was her response?  That I was a lottery employee, or an ex-lottery employee, and I was in cahoots with the state lotteries to spread propoganda about the lotteries.

                            Needless to say, my next e-mail to Ms. Nettles was to be my last, as I do not make it a habit to correspond with kooks.

                            The ironic thing is that I have offered to help state lotteries in the past as a consultant, but so far none have taken me up on the offer.  Go figure!

                            I am not exactly sure of what "Pumpi" had in mind when he started this thread, or who exactly he thought the "lottery employee" was, but I can guess.  I always advise people to think logically about these things, and not to assume to worst in everything.

                            If people won the lottery as often as they could flip "heads" or "tails", then it would make sense to think there was something wrong if you didn't win a lot.  But the truth is that you'll get a straight hit as many times as you can flip that coin "heads" 10 times in a row, so unless you think you can do that very often, don't jump to conspiracy theories.

                              Cracking the lottery isn't hard, it just not affordable or practical.  Payout amounts are designed such that lotteries will alway payout less than they takes in.
