One more thought :

Wait til LottoMike hears this - he will blow a gasket too !!!!!

im sure lottomike will react as soon as he hears about it and he will also email them...

      I should have known something was up when they changed the draw break times. RNG draws always have earlier draw breaks than ball drawings.

        I just sent my email also and told them I would boycott and try to get everyone else to do the same.

          Haha, funny you posted the pic of Rebecca, JoshuaCloak. Just the other month I was looking up numbers and decided to visit the 'Winners' page. As I sat here looking at the pics, I was thinking to myself that if I ever won... I was NOT going to let her be in my pic. Just something about her screams "Homecoming Queen gone bad".

            This is from their website. 

            Upcoming developments include:
            •A new prize level in the popular game, Lotto 5, which will allow a player to win by matching two of five numbers in addition to three other prize levels in this game
            •An exciting new way to hold drawings using the latest in automated technology, joining numerous lotteries throughout the country that use similar computerization

            "•An exciting new way to hold drawings using the latest in automated technology, joining numerous lotteries throughout the country that use similar computerization "

            That's Marketing gibberish for It's exciting because it saves us money and we won't have to broadcast the drawings any more".

            If it goes like Wisconsin did, it will be a lot tougher to hit the P3 or P4 without spending the farm. Unfortunately, this is the future way of things.  Going to RNG doesn't seem to affect the Bottom Line in any state.  People still play it, and the lottery saves money in the six-figure range yearly from it.

                MO is another one of those states doing that Jimmy. It is really sad... The only bonus to it is you see the ball rolling end over end but when it starts getting down to the end of the chute the ball straightens itself out. No more having to read them upside down or sideways. lol.

                It is so lame. Sad 

                Check it out for yourself. MO drawing 

                I tried to view one myself but it kept kicking me out. You all may have better luck.

                  I finally got the video working. I had to change a setting. Choose Midday drawing after clicking the link to see all 3 fake drawings.

                    If we can't stop it I will simply drive to GA for Fantasy 5.  Plain and simple.  Oh yeah, I'll play Powerball in TN but good bye Cash 3 and 4 as well as Lotto 5.  I may even buy a scratchoff too but since I'm in GA I might just play theirs.  After all, they have a lot of the same games we have in TN. 

                    I actually kind of had a hint they would do this.  With million $ madness and the recent play it again drawings they used a computer to randomly pick the winners.  I guess it's easier on them that way and cost efficient because we all know Becca needs another face lift. 

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

                      you are right about million madness and play it again because i didnt win anything on either of those and i wasnt close on million madness. i won cash 4 years ago but i dont have a chance of winning at any game if they go to rng

                        There will still be winners with RNG but to me and a lot of other players that is a huge loss in integrity and takes all the fun out of the games.

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

                          TN knows where the money is - the die-hard players that'll play every game without regard for nuisance things like integrity.

                              I think they have flagged my email because they never reply anymore unless it's a good comment. 

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