The GA lottery page says "Each on-line game has several ballsets which are individually sealed and bound and are assigned a number. There is a random selection for each drawing to determine which ballset will be used."

 

With all of these systems out there, how do you deal with random ballsets?

IT could be that one set is used twice in a row or that they alternate.

That certainly adds randomness to the equation.

    If the strategy for picking combinations was developed using draw history which includes the use of random ball sets then random ball sets shouldn't effect future results any differently than they did past results.  If the  strategy doesn't use draw history then it doesn't matter which ball set is used.

      Every night they drop 3 sets of ten numbered balls into 3 containers and mix them up using a mechanica device. As the balls are stirring, forced air is added, and we see chaos until one ball settles in the tube at the top of each container. There are many ways to have a random drawing but this seems to be best.

      Does it really matter if they use ball set #99, #14, or #67 when any of the ball sets will go through the same chaotic conditions?

      "That certainly adds randomness to the equation"

      I'm pretty sure each state lottery advertises the fact their drawings are random and every player has a chance of winning.

        08/08/2009 drawing, Powerball 11 drawn using Powerball Machine 10, Ballset 18
        08/26/2009 drawing, Powerball 11 drawn using Powerball Machine 10, Ballset 18
