Occasionally the Florida Lottery site will have a poll.  I'm not sure if it's just a coincidence, but a few of them have been on subjects we were discussing on Lottery Post.

When I signed on last night, I saw that the new poll asks a few questions about ball drawings vs electronic drawings.  One of the questions is:

For you personally, which of these two methods do you feel is more fair and random?

Please check it out!

      Thanks, Jarasan.  I wasn't sure if I could post the link here, but I figured most people would be able to find it.  Yes, I voted too.  I haven't won much, but I still want them to continue with the ball drawings.

        I hope a lot of people vote. I emailed them a couple of weeks ago about this same subject. I hope I didn't open an hornets nest.

          Thanks for postng this.

          Everyone, please vote to let the Fla Lottery know that only ball drawings are fair!!

          Too bad they don't show the results.

            It's rather strange that they don't keep a tab on the people that have already voted. I saw that poll months ago, and I just clicked on the link, only to see that I have the option to vote again, using the same computer.

            Does that mean I can vote 20 times a day?...lol

              Isaw that on the FL site a couple of weeks ago and thought it was more than a coincidence.  Of course I voted for ball drawings.  If everybody on LP went to the site and voted it could make a big difference in any decision they are making.

              Good Luck!

                Pac, I don't know what is scarier - the thought that FL will go to computerized draws or that I was typing the same thing as you at the same time .....again! 

                Scared

                Anyway, I was about to say that, when I voted in the past on various FL polls, I noticed the same things (a) they never show results and (b) you can vote as many times as you want

                I believe it's because the company they use isn't as knowledgeable as Todd (and, NO, I am not kissing up) on designing a site and its features.

                  LOL...synchronicity at work. 

                  Then the poll would have erroneous readings when tallied up...no?

                    Especailly when all the Lottery employees have voted hundreds of times over for computerized drawings!

                      We already know about Florida's Election Process!

                          I'm wondering if this isn't just a poll by Florida or a marketing test of sorts to see if computerized drawings would go over or not- because they might be thinking of going to them.

                          Why else would they put such a poll up?

                          Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                          Lep

                          There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                            One of the benfits to the lottery bottom line is less lottery employees with computerized drawings, I doubt they would vote computerized.

                              I truly hope FL isn't testing the waters! Confused

                              Since TN went computerized, I've had to stop playing the Lotto 5. Friday's numbers cemented my decision 13-14-15-25-26.

                              In the words of Charlie Brown... "GOOD GRIEF!"
