Thanks for your thoughts......I can tell you from talking to 100's of retailers here in Michigan that just about no one trusts the dailys. Many act like it's an automatic conclusion that the daily 3 & daily 4 games are rigged. Just the way the games are run in secret with zero oversight from either the legislative body or the govenors office is alarming Some very suspicous stories have been told. The process of having 10 sets of balls that come from a company in New Jersey and these ball are put in and out of the games without ...A) ..public knowledge..and..B)...wiithout any real reason or method as to why the balls are changed.....smells. They will tell you they change em "just to change em up"...so what they are saying is we really don't know if the balls we are taking out are faulty so we just change them. And keep in mind it's all done in private....It's bull. Why on earth do we need such an intricate system to pick 3 or 4 numbers. Why does a state thats going broke have to pay a company to pick a few numbers? There are thousands of lottery clubs....retirement groups...church clubs, etc, that would galdly help the state pick the daily numbers.....Lets take it out of the private room. With the right simple system of drawing numbers from a clear drum with differant people everyday the games could be managed to be fair, fun and trustworthy. This would create a tremendous sense of player involment and openness which for sure would bring excitement to the games and boost sales. In short the process now stinks and is without a doubt being manipulated. If you want want here are the numbers to the Govenors office...517 355 7858.....or the Lottery office...517 335 5600....Telling them that the drawing process needs some sunshine....and that it's hard to trust...it smells.....well it can't hurt to let them know.
