Here in Arizona, there is the Pick 6 (6/44), the Pick 5 (5/35), and the Pick 3 (3/10). I know that the Pick 6 and the Pick 5 are ball driven, not computer generated. And the Pick 6 and Pick 5 have 4 different ball sets, each, with a ball set picked at random at drawing time (I assume, but how exactly are they picked at random?). And are the balls weighed and measured? Do the balls have to met certain specs? I assume that the situation is similiar with the Pick 3, but then again I don't know.

Just wondering what the situation is with the Powerball and the Mega Millions concerning balls and ball sets. And I hear about test draws before and after the actual drawing.

      I like the jackpot games to be ball drawn in a random draw not computerized.
