Apparently there were two separate auditors to check the drawings — Smartplay International Inc. and Gaming Laboratories Inc., both of which are based in New Jersey (hmmmm....).  (Documented here: http://www.lotterypost.com/news/161364)

The type of auditor you are referring to, like KPMG, audit the financial side of things, like jackpots, other prizes, distribution of funds, balance sheet, etc.  The gaming auditors above are supposed to be able to determine if a drawing machine is operating properly.

Ultimately though, it is the Tennessee Lottery that is at fault.  They are supposed to be the experts at their games.  You can outsource the drawings, but you don't outsource your brain.

After a few drawings of no doubles they should have been more inquisitive.  I'll bet they didn't bother to even look at the numbers themselves until players brought it to their attention.  Then, I personally believe they told a tall tale when they told players that their people ran some sample drawings and saw doubles drawn.  How could they possibly have done that?  Why isn't the media reporting that??

This is very upsetting, because it is completely unnessesary.  Why the h*** did they switch the drawings in the first place?  They wrecked their relatively new lottery, as far as I'm concerned.  Not only are the drawings fake now, but their credibility is destroyed.

i agree.tennessee lost its credibility.

tennessee had a pretty good thing going.they had a pick 3 and pick 4 twice a day.a good pick 5 game that reaches up to half a million or sometimes a million that was drawn three times a week.they had powerball.plus we have some very good scratch offs plus a raffle recently.

 

pretty damn stupid of them to switch to RNG.i never ever would've thought this would happen.jimmysand9 had actually pointed it out first when he saw that part on the website about an exciting new way but i never thought they meant new draws and RNG.we have some very smart people here like him and toadschmode who catch these things.too damn bad we can't take the tennessee lottery to court.the players could raise so much hell that they would be forced to bring back ball drawings.

    who says you cant call your state Representatives and clue them into the news articles about this. Copy and paste the links and drop it in an email to them.

    Call or email the lieutenant Governor Ron Ramsey, or the attorney general office Robert E. Cooper, Jr. You can do all sorts of things to try and get this matter fixed. Just keep a level head and be persistent. Be prepared to show facts and figures. They wouldn't be the least bit interested if you go at it with a hot headed attitude.

      unfortunately all this has happened at a bad time for me.i'm going through a lot of health problems right now a lot of it brought on by me and i'm not in a good position to do anything.any other time i would've been the first person to reach out and help with the issue but i'm not mentally or physically able.i really do hate that though because i would be level headed and present our case and show the evidence we have.you were one of the first to discover this so you should be applauded for noticing it because i never would have in the way my state is right now.you are right though.i think we could get somewhere if we could present all this stuff and show it to interested people who could do something with it.
