                If Indiana's legislature suffered an attack collective integrity and ordered the Hoosier Lottery to revert to real lottery drawings, I would begin playing again, provided the drawings were broadcast on live television across the ENTIRE state. If they failed to take this step, I would continue to avoid their games.

                    No change is my vote. I usually buy more when it reaches sudden death.

                          Actually when a lottery payoff hits a certain amount hordes of people flock to the register to buy their chance. It never ceases to amaze me. As if a million dollars is just not enough to wage a dollar on. lol... The sudden death dude is speaking of is that moment when everyone and their brother is buying up tickets, insuring a win for somebody. That's just my take. I'm often wrong.

                            I voted to spend more.  In my opinion, the fact is that mechanical is constent, unless the balls and or machine are in perfect condition in operation, everything will do it's job. People will win more, and systems will work too. 

                             

                            Computerized!!.... hmmmm..... just like Algebra... many variables, depending on what team of programming wizards are behind the curtain. People will win less, past systems will work less (maybe, that's a big if)  and I agree with a former post from Jim,  ("the states don't care"). What type of drawing device is used. Just as long as it's generating more money for the state. Of course, there will be winners, but i think..... less winners as before the switch.

                            Some say I won't play, but truly... after the storm blows over and people have no choice, they'll play, they'll play something! Only someone or a team of someone's that are creative in the development of a system that keeps up with the state's lottery computer will have better chances for players to win more.

                            Again, it's only my opinion
