      I discarded my vote because there is no "I HOPE NOT" option. Lurking

        That's what happen in WI. They introduced the Bader 5 Computer Generated Numbers game; then shortly after, they all were switched over Computer Generated Numbers.

        On a side note, we need to stop using the RNG (Random Number Generator) misnomer when referring to CGN (Computer Generated Numbers) until the state proves by disclosing of the software and hardware used to create these numbers. If you can't test the experiment, and they are experiments in random selection, then you cannot say without a doubt the numbers you are getting are truly random.

          I don't know why this game would lead to all games going RNG. This game is replacing a RNG game that from what I've heard didn't fair very well.

          I love doubles and remember, it's just a game!!!!!!

            I voted "yes".  This is the future.  Like any "business" (and the lottery is in one aspect a business...it is one of the few govt-run venues where they actually expect to make a profit to stay valid, as opposed to just "tax and spend") they will know that cutting costs is one of the ways that you heighten the Bottom Line.  Not televising drawings -- because with RNG there is nothing to televise) saves hundreds of thousands of dollars each year.  Eventually, they won't be able to cut costs at some point, and they will have to trim payroll or come up with something that will increase revenues.

            Increasing payouts is the last resort.

              I agree with Badger, it is a business. As long as they can sell tickets they have every reason to cut cost. I believe most players do not know  nor care how the numbers are selected or what the odds are.

               I was in line yesterday, person in front of me saw the promo for the 3 line game. Knew nothing about it but wanted to play $10.00.  quick pick of course

              sales start today.

              I enjoy the chalenge of trying to pick #'s. I have no expectaction that I can really beat the odds. My reward is the chalenge. an ocassional win helps to keep me at it and trying new things. 

               Computer drawn vs ball machines I see no real difference.  someone intent on manipulating either could, but it will be quickly spotted.

                  I don't want to sound like a wise guy here but wouldn't an RNG make for a really crappy TV Drawing???Clown

                  How are you going to win if you don't play?

                    Yep. Kinda like asking for QP's, thank you very much.  May I have another?  Why don't they just RHG (random horsey generator)  the Kentucky Derby next year?  You know like the one MD. runs on-line like Keno, it's called RaceTrax.  I certainly would miss the hats and the mint juleps though.  jarasan

                    p.s. I hope not. And three line lotto is a joke. Assuming they pick lines 2 and 3.

                      I agree with the business fact of the lottery needing to find ways to make money, but if you don't increase the payouts you will lose players. Kentucky had a game a long time ago called "The Pick" it was phased out and when I asked a lottery rep. she couldn't tell me why. I believe it was because too many people were winning on it.

                       

                      My personal opinion is that the reason online gambling has done so well is .......

                      1. higher payouts

                      2. play just about any state and other countries

                      3. taxes

                        The Pick, how was that played? Was it anything like The Pick in Arizona?
