      If MD goes computer I'll just play MM PB.  If they go computerized,  I'll go back to poker.

                What is the difference?Does it really matter if the games are played this way? or do this mean they are cheating the people?

                  delores it varies from state to state.in some it isn't too bad but in others like indiana the payouts are so pathetic that they have only ONE pick 4 straight hit in the whole state that day on average.could you imagine just one straight hit in the pick 4 in the whole state and only 900 dollars in total winnings the whole day.something is definitely fishy in indy.........

                    Thank you Lottomike for explaining this what a shame,You know even if there are quite a bit of winners in some games like Texas cash5 the pay is so poor,i can get 2 right each night and only get 2 dollars which i can accept but 3 right only nets about 9 or 10 bucks,then 4 is under 100 dollars,i guess you have to get 5 right to be on the ball,When the number format change the amount made a drastic dive because there use to not be any pay out for 2 numbers and when you got 3 right you at least was paid 18 sometimes 25 dollars and 4 right would net almost 500 and sometimes more,goodluck Mike

                      I've never played a lottery game with computerized drawings because Ohio has never had one and I've only played BigGame and PowerBall out of state.  Ohio will have a computerized drawing for "Ten-OH" a Keno style game starting next month and I probably won't play it because I'm not a fan of Keno style games, I didn't like "Lot'O Play" either.

                      I prefer live drawings with balls but I'm sure most players don't care either way because scratch-offs are even worse than computerized drawings and most players like them.  When you buy one you're at the mercy of the computerized printer and if there isn't a roll with a winner within fifty miles, there nothing you can do about it.  They tell you the overall odds of winning something but many time that something is a free play.  Winning a free ticket is not the same as winning the cost of the ticket to me, by that logic everybody could be a winner even if the state never pay back a penny.

                      I probably won't be playing a lottery with a computerized drawing in the near future unless MegaMillions or Rolling Cash5 goes that way.

                        Florida draws the balls. If they switched to a computerized draw I would still play, but just a couple of dollars per draw to be in the game, no big wheels. No point trying to predict what goes on in a computer's chips.  BobP

                          That is amazing one P4 straight hit in the whole state of Indiana, some one needs to call for an immediate audit, if that isn't rigging outcome I don't know what is.

                          Day before in MD. 5858 hit double/double 28 people hit straight 111 people hit box, ball drawn game, MD. is a small state.

                              I agree with you, I favor live draws. One good thing to say for the computerized draws, in D.C. they selected quads 3 times this year.
