I am a VIP member for my state game and this is what I got in my email:

Due to equipment issues we have been unable to do the draw for 7-30-09 for Pick 3 and Double Play Daily. We will announce the winning numbers when this gets resolved and we can complete the draw. Thanks for your patience.

I was wondering why there were no numbers drawn for those two games. I wished they would quit using computer drawings and go to ball drawings. I wonder what numbers they will pick to be the winning numbers. I am sure they will be numbers that very few people played. Roll Eyes

    I could never figure when states go to computerized drawings, they claim they save money by not having to show them on TV.  But if it was the cost of showing live ball drawings on TV that's the problem why can't they continue live ball drawings with out showing them on TV but allow a select group of the public to observe them where ever they happen?   Then when they had a problem, the problem and its fix would be transparent to the average person.

      I agree with you. I don't understand why they can't just use ball drawings. It just seems so fishy how things are handled with the computer drawings.

      I have sent emails about using ball drawings instead of RNG, but they say that there is nothing wrong with the computer drawings and that they have no plans to change anything. So my only option, is to not play their games.  No Nod
