We have all been alarmed by Florida asking about computerized drawings, so I have a strong suggestion for a campaign slogan, if you want to call it that.

Florida, if you go R-N-G, my education dollars go B-Y-E.

      The best 'slogan' or campaign imaginable would be to not play, but you have to get a lot of people to not play, enough to let the lottery feel it.

      Unfortunately, if you asked any number of players about a mechanical ball drawing versus a computerized drawing, far too many wouyld ask you what you are talking about.

      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.

        I have to admit  - wild horses couldn't drag me away from the lottery terminal on Wed and Sat.  Yes, I am dead set against computerized drawings, but I won't stop playing.

          Good post  .....I  agree  All  lottery  drawings  should  be  live  and  transparent...

          A  good  example  of  what  a  lottery  should  look  like is  the 

          " VIRGINIA  lottery"

          because  (1)  all  drawings  are  real  and  you  can  view them  on  line ...

          (2) you  can  download  the  the  numbers  from  their  web  page  ...for  free  ,very  few  web  pages  or  state  lottery's  will  do  this ;

          (3) there  are  pick-3,pick-4  and  pick  5  drawings  Two  times  a  day  , very  few  if  any  has  a  match  for  the  same .

          But  do  more  people  win  with  non-computerized  drawings  than  with  a  computer  draw, I  would  say  no  ,  its  about  the  same..... 

          but  are  your  winnings  higher  without  a  computer    ,,..YES ....computers  are  programed  devices  and  can  be  compromised ,  the  state  can  control  the  payouts  and  control 

          prizes  amounts...

                Nope it's not. I will start a thread for ball-drawn games that aren't broadcast. Might be worth looking into.
