I just saw the first lotto 5 drawing computerized...  OMG I'm going to the bathroom to throw up.  Guys don't watch if you didn't tonight.  It will break your heart.  (FYI I didn't buy a ticket for the first time since April)

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

    Don't be silly.  The new drawings are 'exciting'. Roll Eyes

            OMG - horrible is correct!

            What's the deal with the techno-dracula music in the background?  Is that the 'exciting' part?

              Interesting.  So Tennessee's first computerized drawing produced something that happens only 1% of the time in a typical lottery game.  Hmm...

              Someone mentioned how they think some senator's son will win right away.  I tend to think the opposite.  I think they'll hold off on winners more so the JP will grow larger.  Is this one of the ways they'll do it?

                Reminds me of an old TV series where the guy would get Tomorrow's Newspaper a day early and because of such, could prevent something bad from happening.

                Well, in one episode, it was regarding a computerized lottery that had been rigged by corrupt officials, that to insure that the pot would "be returned to the state" after so many games without a winner, they would make sure that the numbers drawn would NEVER match a winning ticket. Of course, as the story goes, the hero buys the winning ticket in like the last 5 seconds before the cutoff time, wins the lottery, thereby spoiling the crooks plans and deposits the winning ticket in the donations box of a local Catholic Church.

                Sad thing is, such an event could very possibly occur which is all the more reason why trust in a computerized system is so little. All it takes is the right "code" to insure who gets the big win. Remember the movie "Man of the Year" with Robin Williams. A story of how a man almost became the next President of the USA due to bad coding in the automated voting system. I recognize movies are for entertainment, but at the same time, I am one who believes there is always a hint of truth in every fantasy.

                Who knows, perhaps there are safegaurds in place to insure the computerized system doesn't deteriate the value of the game. But what safegaurds are in place to deter human greed?

                    WOW!  That really was exciting!  NOT!

                    Has anyone compared the payout information since they went to this exciting new procedure?  I'd be interested in seeing that information.

                    I sincerely hope that all of you from Tennessee have stopped buying tickets.  And I sincerely hope you are telling everyone you know about this and encouraging them to stop as well.  I'm not sure how much if any good it will do but it is the only way to get their attention.  Hit them where it counts!

                        Perhaps it is the video-stream, but it seemed to me that for the last digit of the cash 4 draw, being 8, that woman said "8" before it even showed up...

                        Even if this is recorded and the sound was added later on, it is a terrible job done, and will make many people suspicious...

                        OMG! <--> That is correct

                        But here in Belgium it is the same thing lol - NOT LOL ;-)

                          the voice over also doesnt say the date so it is definitely prerecorded because they used to give us the date on the live drawings so we wouldnt think it was fixed but of course now they could careless if we think the games are fixed they feel like they will continue to make money anyway.

                            Watching that I felt like I was at the casino playing the fake automated roulette or the keno machine. Somehow you always feel they deliberatly pick the numbers around YOUR chosen numbers.

                            Too bad, sorry Tennessee. That looked awful.

                              that show was called "early edition" i think it was on cbs i always liked it and playing the lottery and retiring would be a good benefit of getting the paper early.
