So after reading this post, my question is:
In a state that uses a computer RNG for lotto games. Can the computer detect which numbers have been played and then select the daily numbers based on paying out the least amount? Or in other words cheat the players? Does my question make sense?
As if on any given day- 1000 tickets had a 3-6-5 selection and only 1 ticket had 3-6-4 could the computer generate the winning daily numbers 3-6-4 to ease the total payouts for that day? Or once again cheat the players. Is this probable or likely to happen?
I attempt to get a print out of the winners in each game each day. Try to compare them and see if anything stands out to me. In Idaho I noticed that rarely does someone hit the pick 3. Same in Washington state. The total payouts are usually consistent from day to day. I'd love to see some statistics about total money collected and total money paid out annually for a state RNG pick 3 game. Anyone know if this is available. Thanks.
