Hi folks,

This is Eugene from Seattle....

I have a very interesting questions for all of you

as far with knowlege into the lottery.

Could the lottery officials have seen your numbers

on your ticket by scanning through their computer

system from stores and "decides" which should

be the next winning numbers??

I have a few friends including my 17 years old

nephew who's smart, they thinks that whenever

you buy your lotto ticket from the lottery retailer,

by using their lottery machine, the lottery official

scans through their data to see your lottery numbers

on your ticket(s) whether it's a quick-pick or your own

numbers, to decide which ones will be the next winner.

My friends and my nephew, believes that when they

decided what winning numbers should be next,

they judge on the balls what to pop up for that

winning numbers.

I kind of skeptical on the other hand, because

when I buys my Powerball and Mega Millions tickets,

using my own creative numbers, usualy they're not

drawn.  HOWEVER!!! HOWEVER, everytime when I

DO NOT PLAY MM AND PB, SHOCKING, some of my

own numbers were drawn!!! That's only when I

don't play.  And when I do, they don't draw.

So, my question to you is, does the lottery officials

sees your lottery ticket by scanning through their

computer data from retailer stores???

The people that I know, thinks so.

I've seen my own numbers in PB & MM popped up

when I don't play.  But when I do, they don't pops up.

Only the Mega ball and Powerball part for $4 popped up

when I played.

It's hard to put myself into schedule by trying to

buy MM or PB ticket at the closest time before

the ticket sales ends, or before the drawings.

Rather at anytime of the day or week before

the drawing night.

What do you think??

Thank you,

Eugene

    That's certainly a possibility. They could use weighted balls so they can control what numbers are drawn.

      I honestly believe the lottery officials decide when they want to lose, it's a business, I really don't see it being 100% random.

        Are you serious do you think that every powerball and mega million state lottery directors are running a rigged game just for the sake of selling the winning ticket to some person whom they have decided months ago they want to win every time a jackpot is gets big.

        Lottery directors could care less who wins or loses. Their main interest is selling tickets and awarding checks to people who win. Neither the lottery directors nor the balls in the machine have a clue who bought the winning ticket or not.

        Every ticket no matter what numbers are on them has an equal chance at being drawn.

          Wouldn't everyone like to believe so, but certain things make me wonder. For an example, the big one.. Computerized drawings. Another example, didn't the MM jackpot get hit 2 times in a row recently? What if that happened often, I imagine they would start losing money faster than they are gaining it.

          I don't think they are selecting the winning number persay, but I do think there's more behind that computerized drawing than a random number generator.

            So suppose people bought advance ticket plays so they wouldn't have to run back to the store if the jackpot wasn't won.

            Most winning tickets are quick picks not self pick tickets for mega and powerball.

            mega millions and powerball have ball drawings.

              i dont think they do but they could if they wanted to, i am split half the time i think they can do it the other half i dont think they can do it but they could do it if they wanted to...The lottery is a cartel..YOu know what cartels can do...I think they could be the inventors of the UFO´s...They can do magic...

              The reason why i think they could do it is because i´ve seen discrepancies that makes me think that they do choose the winners but not all the time...dont ask me to explain the discrepancies...i think they have been doing it just every now and then...

              and something else i think they do is: like they can read predictions from this site, and do pretest and if they dont like you and one of the predictor´s numbers came on the pretest or actual drawing they will do an additional pre-test/drawing for spite just so you dont win...One of many reasons why if i could do predictions i will not do them...If i ever do predictions it will be for a foreign country...

              i am remembering the movie: Swordfish when the hacker says: What you only fantasicy he does, well those are cartels...You know who could win 80 pick3 drawings in a row? Cartels because they do what you fantasicy...There are so many theoretical theories out there in so many countries that a regular person dont know about, well cartels can get those books and stuff...the average person can not...Cartel can travel to different countries/states check out the latest, when the masses only read the latest 4 years after the first time they have appeared, cartels can read every book in a bookstore the average person cant not...

              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¨

                Small games have been rigged before.  The Pennsylvania Lottery's three digit numbers game was rigged many years ago... they weighted some of the balls.   Called the  "1980 Pennsylvania Lottery scandal"... well documented. 

                For a big game like Powerball, it's practically a license to print money for the operators.  I doubt they would risk killing the goose that lays the golden egg for a game like that. 

                But you never know.

                    If the game is a ball drop game, it is honest.

                    If its a computer generated game, run away as fast as your tiny legs will allow.

                        The people that I know, thinks so.

                        I've seen my own numbers in PB & MM popped up

                        when I don't play.  But when I do, they don't pops up.

                        Only the Mega ball and Powerball part for $4 popped up

                        when I played.

                        It's hard to put myself into schedule by trying to

                        buy MM or PB ticket at the closest time before

                        the ticket sales ends, or before the drawings.

                        Rather at anytime of the day or week before

                        the drawing night.

                        What do you think??

                        Thank you,

                        Eugene

                        MM and PB are ball draws, not computer draws.

                        They are rigged arleady.......

                        by virtue of the odds. They don't have to do any rigging or checking numbers before the draw, because at 195+ million to 1 odds for PB and 175+ million to 1 odds in MM, the chances of you or me or anyone winning is infintesimal.

                        Two wins in a row? Sure it's possible. It happens once in great while. Will it happen on a regular basis, such as once a month? It could, but that is a bet I wouldn't take.

                        CAN'T WIN IF YOU'RE NOT IN

                        A DOLLAR AND A DREAM (OR $2)

                            How could the officials decide who will be the next winner based just on the tickets? The purchaser's names aren't on the betslips or tickets. Stores sell hundreds if not more tickets a day. How could they pinpoint who bought what?

                            And like cointoss said, why would they even bother? They get their money no matter who wins.

                              I believe Tennessee does it. They have way to many repeats.

                              Especially on the cash 3.
