It would be so nice if folks got their facts straight before posting this BS.

First, Powerball DID NOT 'choose' Universal Studios. I won't go into details here.

Second, what could they POSSIBLY gain by a 'deception' ?   The games are won (or not) at the same rate - have been for years, so get back to me if the Jackpot is won on, say, 10 nonsecutive drawings in-a-row, or if it goes 6 months or a year without getting hit.

Seriously - what would be the purpose of doing anything you are 'alleging' ?

 

And as far as this goes - 'We would not be surprised if Powerball and Universal Studios werealready using CGI and their Green Screen technique to plug-in a liveperson and play for the public a possible fake, realistic looking CGIdrawing machines. It's not beyond the realm of possibility.' -  I can tell you for absolute fact that this isn't the case.

You go right ahead and keep on telling us that.

We'll be right over here ignoring you.

    " First, Powerball DID NOT 'choose' Universal Studios. I won't go into details here."

    The only way possible for you to make that statement and have that knowledge is

    1. You are associated with Universal Studios

    or

    2. You are associated with Powerball

    or

    3. You are associated with the Florida Lottery.

    Could possibly be 2 & 3

    or you have a relative who works for either of them and they are passing along proprietary info.

      We guesser you're right.

      But here's something even more interesting. There would be no response if there wasn't even the sight possibility this could be true. After all, if they know the truth about it all, then this is just an insane rave about... nothing. The fact that they have some minor level minion replying for them is all too revealing.

          After watching a few drawings, we can see their choice of colors is well selected. Overall dark colors and mostly blues make it harder for the human eye to pick up any flaws in the video. The human eye is a keen instrument, but it can be fooled by choices in colors, contrast and brightness. Since our eyes have a more difficult time seeing blues and dark blues contrast, it makes good sense why those were used. Out of sight, out of mind. Hmm? Must be from a different lesson learned. We'll continue to watch.

            Computer graphics today are not realistic enough to fake that. It will either look too pixelated or too perfect.

            But within 5-10 year it will probably be possible.

              I'm not replying for anybody aside from the facts, you are the one throwing out speculation and innuendo with nothing to back it up.

              You are suggesting it is all smoke and mirrors, and you have not the slightest grounds for saying that, aside from the fact that the drawing has moved to an amusement park owned by a movie corporation.   I have done nothing to suggest anyone has done anything off-handed - you have, and it's not right.

              And to say 'There would be no response if there wasn't even the slightest possibility this could be true', that's a pretty profound statement, because it implies you or anyone can post anything they want, and if anyone replies for any reason, then it might be 'true'.

              Still, that said, nobody has given any bonifide reasons why anyone would want to skew the lottery - and I don't think they have any interest or reason to skew it because you can be assured that for as long as the lottery has been played, surely word would leak out, or someone a lot smarter than any of us would have it figured out by now.

              But alas, as you also said, you just keep on ignoring me, better yet - put me on your Ignore List, then you won't have to listen to the voice of reason.

                     I'm not one to even watch the drawings lately,   As a matter of fact any lottery draw I'm in, is like Christmas to me.

                           I'm all excited the next day opening my present from Santa,  wondering whats in it, (lottery ticket)

                  I was wondering though, Guesser says he's been to a few drawings,

                  How exactly do they determine the ball-set, and machines, for the up-coming draw, (powerball)

                   Is it a computer thing?  Mabey there's an old man in a Tower, and they yell up.......

                  "Hey old man,  which Ball-set do we use this time?"

                          Does anybody know?          Thanks in advance.

                    Woudn't it be cool if the Terminator picked the numbers?  Or maybe they could have a drawing in Jurassic Park with T-Rex eating 5 people with numbers on their white tee shirts and 1 wearing a red one.  Eek!

                      Well hopefully the fact that I've been to Universal and also read The Art of Deception by Kevin Mitnick several years ago means i'll be given some luck Big Smile

                        Putting two and two together is relatively easy. If you'd like to see if that kind of fakery can be made to look real, you don't have to look far. It's staring you right in the face almost every day. It can illustrate the level of perfection that has been achieved in a variety of applications from total CGI to CGI with live action embedded. It is the TELEVISION COMMERCIAL. Just watch carefully how the Unreal can be made to Look Real. This is just one example of an application in the Art of Deception.

                          I'm confused as to how it is fake if somebody actually wins???  Maybe you are trying to say they hold out on giving a winning jp number so the jackpot climbs higher? somebody will eventually win.  people definitely win the lower tier prizes so I don't see how you claim is valid.
