I believe what pumpi76 was referring to is that in the construction, design, and use of the machines whether intentional or not they seem to fall into certain groves of number generation and picks.
When you look at this from a common sense perspective it does not seem possible, but if you looked at it from a science perspective, I am sure that if you had the exact same machines and balls and ran them in the exact same manner you would find that certain air, pressure, speed factors, temperature, electronics, ball weight, etc... will produce similar results more often than if all the factors were 100% random.
So considering that most of the equipment and materials for the games does not change then each lottery would have its own tendencies or “personality”. Not a personality in the emotional and self aware sense.
You must also consider that the lotteries use some of the best marketers and therefore would have thought to make the games different from each other without altering the results too much so that they could attract different players which they might have lost without the different models of the games.
