                  It's going to happen. Obviously lotteries that go computerized save more money than they lose from players supposedly not playing the games anymore, or else no lottery would be computerized today. I guess you players that say you'd stop if all games went computerized are in the very very very very very small minority.

                        There can be no question that, if this trend is allowed to continue (in other words, if WE allow it to continue), Florida and other states will embrace electronic drawing methods.

                        Once officials in other states begin to see how much money can simply vanish before the public's eyes, with no consequences or investigations, of course they'll make the switch. Not to do so would make them the laughingstock of their peers. Ethics violations, questionable spending and outright fraud or other criminal activity are not only condoned by the legislature, but they're willing to pass laws that protect the wrongdoers who practice them.

                        Very few attorneys are willing to jeopardize their practices to challenge the state. In Indiana, we shopped our evidence file around to various attorneys for over a year. Three different firms have told us that what we've collected is "probably sufficient to convict on at least three federal RICO predicates (Wire Fraud, Conspiracy to Commit Wire Fraud and Misappropriation/ Conversion of Public Funds)." None are willing to file our case in court, however, because, "the state house can make it very difficult for us to make a living." Read into that what you will, but the bottom line is that they're not willing to jeopardize their own careers and livelihoods by making powerful public officials answer for their crimes.

                        Those of you who reside in states that still use traditional drawing methods should enjoy your reverie while you can. For many of you, these issues are only real in the minds of those who continue protesting the use of RNG's in state lotteries. The reality of the situation won't settle in until your state lottery switches to electronic drawings, informing the public after the fact. By then, it will be too late, and you'll be back here trying to recruit help from the forum.  

                        Welcome to my little world ...

                      Come, Pinky; we must prepare for tomorrow night...

                        I feel I have to say it again, I will repeat my opinion in this issue until you all wakeup:

                         

                        These things happen and will continue happening because we lottery players, enthusiasts, experts, gurus, forum admin and so on are not ORGANIZED. Stop crying and complaining like babies. Grow up. Do something about it. Join me to create the NORTH AMERICAN LOTTERY PLAYERS ASSOCIATION. Then we will have a voice. Then we will have an official channel so the lottery industry will listen to us.

                         

                        We need t o unite under one organization to have an effect on the future of the lottery industry. We need one voice to speak on behalf of lottery players. A committee formed by Lottery Players from around the Country.

                         

                        Do you want to buy lottery tickets over the internet legally? Do you want the state lottery to conduct real drawings made by real people? Do you want to have more chances of winning a lottery jackpot? Would you like to have less taxation on lottery prizes? How about more lottery money driven to our Cities, to benefit education, roads, health and hospitals, public safety, etc.? Did you know that most cities and towns are in a serious fiscal crisis? Would you like to have a lottery in the State that you live?

                         

                        It all can be achieved and much more as long as we are ORGANIZED UNDER A NATIONAL ASSOCIATION. JOIN ME. DON’T DELAY. ACT NOW.

                          Yeah, they won't lose that many players.  And eventually they will get back some of those they did lose.  As long as it's "The only game in town", and it saves them money, they will eventually go RNG, as will all states. It's not about the players. It's about the profits.

                            I say yes -- Florida will go RNG.

                            In fact, all lottery drawings will be RNG one day. I wish I was wrong, but this terrible trend will not be stopped.

                              My vote is no. I hope Florida doesn't go computerized that drops their grade.
