I sent a request to wclc asking how the draw is done here is the response i got.

Dear Jamie,

Thank you for your inquiry to Western Canada Lottery Corporation (WCLC).

There are two stand-alone computerized draw machines used for WCLC’s regional games such as WESTERN 649, EXTRA and PICK 3.  They are located in a secure location that is monitored by video surveillance 24 hours a day. An external auditor, who oversees the draw, selects which draw machine is to be used for any given draw. Security personnel attend each draw, and all draws are videotaped using an automated time-date stamp.

For each draw machine, there are three Random Number Generators that can be used.  Prior to the draw, the system does a pre-draw test, and the machine selected is randomly decided at the time the draw takes place.  For PICK 3, draws are conducted daily, after sales for that draw have been closed.

The computerized draw machines' Random Number Generators were initially tested by two independent laboratories to ensure the randomness of their number selection. Draw software was also tested independently and certified as accurate. Independent testing of randomness is done when major changes are made to the existing system.

    What was your point in asking? 

    Were you trying to show that computerized drawings are really a good thing? 

    Were you trying to see what the bad points are?

    What is YOUR opinion?

      My point in asking was to see if i could associate the draw numbers to RNG being used, I was under the understanding they used 2 in which they do but each one has 3 RNGs attached to them, also they do a predraw, so now this tells me that my average are most likely higher, or lower in some cases, would explain why we have not had a triple in over 375 days,

      I would think that the external auditor jumps around from RNG to RNG Does he use all six and then Start again? So he actually performs 14 draws per week but we only get to see every second number combo that is pulled,

      Maybe i will ask the lottery corp payouts around the provices, Maybe his friends know something we dont.

      If so then what should my averages really be?

      Or does it even matter?

        I am still chasing sum 17 and tasking a beating, i need it to drop, But the most interesting concep is that it has not showed on any  of the 6 rngs for 100 days so 100/ 6 = 16 days

        What we dont know is how many times it appeared in a pre draw, we could use its same average given what we know about sums.

        But what if it has appeared in 2 of the predraws, then its not really missin really yet! We know everything about the draw we just dont know the predraw.

        How did the Kansas RNG get noticed at time of the 3RD drawn Number, How many RNGs do they run and how are they operated, public knowledge. If they also do a pre draw then a number would have to be repeated for 4 draws Yes? Thats using the same machine. so why was it noticed on the 3rd Draw? Who made big coin I ask you that, should be public knowledge.

        I almost dont trust trust that draw that happened in Kansas in Dec last year. 509,509,509

         Shoud have went like this I think

        Predraw( what was the number)(509)?

        509

        predraw(what was the number)(509)?

        509

        predraw(What was the number)(509)?

        509

        What were the pre draw numbers and do they get recorded.?

        My next Question to WCLC

        look it up. And heres my reasoning? Notice the Key words I highlighted in blue.

        It would be nice to get those 2 days of video taping from Kansas if they do thier drawings the same way, If anybody does make sure you post it on the net so we can watch those crooked bastards.

        If I lived in Kanas I sure would want to know,
