If there was a bingo game where there were no balls but an electronic random number generator, would you play it?

(For all I know, there are such games, but for the purposes of this poll, bear with me):

NOW:

If you answered yes, do you play a computerized state lottery?

If you answered no, do you play a cpmp[uterized state lottery, and why would you, other than if it's the "only game in town" so to speak.  

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

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.

      There were several Online Bingo money sites and still is for non-US players, but to my knowledge none of them had a webcam showing a live ball drawing.

        CoinToss...hey !

         

        Good topic.   Over the past 15 years, our lottery corporation started running computerized bingo at bingo halls across the province. Known as Superstar Bingo in someplaces or the LINK here in Ontario, it's played three times daily, with varying jackpots.  You can win big money, up to $300,000 on LINK PLUS (the game) that grows each time it is played.   If a player bingos on their PLUS number they win the big pot.   It is computer generated from lottery offices in Sault Ste. Marie.  The computer system runs separately from the central computer system that generates the Link cards.  Cards are printed just hours before the game, and players can buy single or three wide strips.  The OLG's website has an extensive section on the LINK -- check it out. 

        Also, the OLG (Ont. Lottery Gaming) has now renovated four bingo halls for electronically run bingo, where players can sit and play on really cool electronic units and also dab if they still prefer the old way.  These state of the art bingo centres is the way Ontario will go in the future.   Any bingo hall that carries the LINK game (about 50 of them) will likely down the road be upgraded.

                I wouldn't play ANY kind of Bingo.  I've tried it.  It's more boring than watching paint dry !
