Personally, I think a number has to have a certain amount of money on it before it hits and that is the reason why it comes and by then people have lost hope.

    I personally agree with D_A, the randomness can be manipulated, intentional or unintentional with computers. The ball has a more truer randomness and the difference if any would be miniscule....!

      No body said anything about how they pull the numbers twice in one day, or the next day, or 3 times in one week! now that's Ironic, I still think they are rigged.

        Yes they are rigged!!!   If anyone thinks they're not,  then let them not do their home work, Complain that they are not winning, and wait for apple pies to fall from the sky!

            I understand your point Joker. But if balls were drawn the way you wanted them to I suppose you would win all the time, right? NOT. Whether the ball comes in the first tube or last why would you care if your winning? At the end of the day, each game is designed for its players to lose. Kinda like a casino but much worser. People are simply lucky when they win the PB or MM. But most people just dont know how to play pick 3 and 4. They get their relative's Bday number and run to the store to lose their hard-earned money. The game is 90% skill and 10% luck. Frankly, its just a scape-goat for people who want to win off of Divine guidance, and when they dont they blame it on the machine used, shameful.

            Who said I would win all the time? But I would win more often. The tube positions matter a lot.

            When I was living in New York, they used to publish the tube rotations, and then decided to stop. I wonder why....hmmmm. I wish I kept the article I read in the New York Daily news about a reply given by an official to a question that was posed by a lottery player. The question pertained to why the officials did the tube rotations. The official wrote that it was done to prevent any patterns from forming (paraphrasing, not verbatim).

              I don't know if all computer states use multiple hard drives, but some do, so not only do they have pseudo randomness going on, they don't even have the same hard drives doing it all. Each is started with a different seed. The hard drives are chosen at random. It may take a week for hard drive A, B, C to be in play again. Each with a predetermined seed to start from and pre-test thrown into the mix as well. And we won't even go into how easily they can be manipulated without even raising an elephant eyebrow. Naughty

              With the ball and blower system, the balls have to weigh within a certain amount and the difference can only be minuscule. The same with the blowers, they have to be within a very short tolerance of each other. Thus making the balls much more random with a much better flow, and in my experience much more predictable. (the part I do like)

              I personally had 3 times the wins with the Ball system, than I have ever had with a computer system.

              Computers have no place in the lottery except to print the tickets for the drawing.

              Ahhhhh....you know me well grasshoppah.....Elephant eyebrows......hee hee...ROFL

              I think my frustration lies in the fact that they don't need to shuffle tubes and do pretests under the guise of making sure the machines are working properly, in order to make tons of money off the unsuspecting public. The greed factor is too much for me to handle. It's hard enough to hit the p-3 straight or even worse, the p-4, that they don't need to throw in monkey wrenches on top of it all.

              I've been hitting less often ever since Florida introduced the mid drawing. It seems as though all those rotations and pre-tests now doubled throws the number patterns totally off and even less predictable. Not to mention that most folks can't afford to play both mid eve draws which leads to missed wins because of it.

              Even Steve Player wrote a side note in his catalog dealing with this whole issue of tube rotations and pretests. He wrote that one of his boxed p-3 systems was designed specifically to work around the tampering by the officials. It worked on predicting chaos, and no matter what the officials did, it was designed to hit. I bought the system years ago, and it looked like a stock market chart.

                    I've taken for granted that everyone hates computers in the lottery drawing process but recently saw someone say they prefer them.

                    What are your thoughts on them?

                    I prefer the ball method for one it is less easily manipulated, not that i really believe the computer drawings are, its just a matter of not leaving the option out there.

                          i prefer computerized games any day...I think i am a small minority here in LP who likes computerized games...the idea that they can be manipulated is something i like very much...

                          The idea that balls are colliding and your ticket could had been up but because of a last minute: 2/300th of a second collision cause your number not to come up i cant grasp that idea...Sincerely it makes no difference to me but because of the fact that computerized can be manipulated i like the idea i think if you are REALLY good it will make no difference....Lots of people dont like the idea of manipulation the way i see is what do you think someone who has a powerful system is, that person can win your jackpot (talking about jackpot games) and to me is almost the same thing as manipulation...

                          This reminds me of: RNG i´ve heard on the internet they talk about the latest technology on RNGs and their seed (or whatever is it that they call it) and this and that and to me it makes no difference is the range/matrix of the game that matters and how many pre-tests...The RNG computer program that i like the most is one i saw on the net that had computer drawings of balls, they were bigger but the container was bigger and they will collide in slow motion, the balls will hit on the walls of the container and bounce back it will take like 1 minute and then you will see the ball that was sucked up it could go on slow motion or faster it was called elottery but it was a free lotto but i saw the website for a short period (like a year) and then didnt see it again...It was very cool...

                          And the random you see in bonus ball is not random, is something was random it could spill 9 drawings all evens and it will still be random because you DONT KNOW what´s coming next to me the lottery the way they are set up, ball drawing or computer is more of a trap than it is random....

                          and if i had to prefer ball drawings i´ll go with the test tubes machine that they used to have (pick3 and Pick4)....Also i´ve seen discrepancies on Pick3 and Pick4 that has lead me to believe that you can also manipulate ball drawings, like i remember every 24 and 25 of december the sums of pick4 will be 24 or 25...

                          i prefer a computerized Pick3 or Pick4 game with no pre-test or played once a day than i prefer a ball drawing with 6 pretests or playing twice a day....

                          i feel if you was good enough it will not make a difference....

                          before they used to be pin pong balls now they are rubber like which makes them bounce more when they collide...i think is a speciall rubber also one that will have lots of bounding on it....

                          to me is the formula that matters anyway...

                          The Forex trades: 1.6 Trillion dollars EVERY day, that´s more than the GDP of the Carribbean Central America, COMBINED. Enough to feed every crook out there for centuries...To all Geniuses & Powers Countries of the World the Planet needs breakthroughs in all Medicine, Veterinary, Biology related fields, Psychology, Population Psychology/Sociology..They need to genetically ingeneer new plants species/types to give more variety of plants and thus have more resources for combating diseases¨
