I've never had a reason to believe or saw any evidence the drawings are rigged simply because of the odds of the game and the payoff structure. With 195 million possible combinations, PB would have to sell 20 million tickets for only 10% of the possible combos. With 5,138,133 possible white ball combination there should be about 4 five number matches. It doesn't mean the jackpot can't be hit, but the odds of a rollover greatly favors the house.

"HOWEVER!!! HOWEVER, everytime when I DO NOT PLAY MM AND PB, SHOCKING, some of myown numbers were drawn!!!"

So basically you're saying the lottery knows which numbers everybody plays and draw those numbers when when we don't play?

OK

        The bigger question is .......If people honestly believe the games are rigged THEN WHY DO THEY PLAY?

        5 + 1 balls out of how many balls? And your suprised that your numbers don't come up? HELLO?

        It's suprising that ANY tickets manage to match all the numbers.

        Think of ALL the states that play MM and/or PP times how many tickets are sold? DO you honestly think their system could check all those tickets to see what numbers have been played?

          Eugene,

          Welcome.

          I've said many times that dice, cards, roullette balls, and lotto balls have "eyes, ears, and no heart", that is they see what you bet, hear what you bet, and see to it that it doesn't hit.

          But even at that, I'm nominating your poast in the OP of this thread for the LP Tin Hat Post of the Week Award!

          With paranoia you'll never have to dine alone

          Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

          Lep

          There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

            Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men?

             

            Do I think the integrity of PB and MM have been compromised? No.

            Can I say that with absolute confidence? No. Why? Because how the hell would I know?

            What I do know is that wherever there are large amounts of money there are people devising schemes to obtain it surreptitiously.

            But I keep playing because I don't believe the games are fixed.

              BRAVO!!!!BRAVO!!!BRAVO!!! ENCORE!!!

              Thank you so much, ca-dreamin', for making such a response to this. It's one of the most educated, yet simple replies which makes all the sense in the world to people that understand the true concept of numbers. This is the reason why the big wins are so far and few between that it ain't even funny!!

              The games are not rigged!! If they were, we'd see more people winning the BIG money more often in all the games down to Pick3/4. Believe that! Somebody, somewhere would have the low down on the winning numbers so they could cash in spread the wealth to family...or something along these lines.

              When I spend my little $20 on the big games, I know it's just a drop in the bucket just like RJOh said it elsewhere in the forums. However, it's still a chance at it...a very minute chance. This is all that's required to win, though...a chance at it. But, to think that out of 49 balls or so plus another one to get the BIG WIN...STRAIGHT...in EXACT ORDER will happen???No Nod

              Let's be real here. The smaller games, with enough of the right combinations played, will easily yield consistent wins along with profit. Why?? LESS TOTAL NUMBERS INVOLVED allows these games to be better managed per dollar spent. End of story. Yeah, it costs money to play in such a way, but, it also COSTS MONEY TO MAKE MONEY. It's been this way since the beginning of time...and will never change.

              Spend wisely and live lively.

                  tiggs is smart enough to not trust either party or any politician and will never argue with a liberal they know it all so he will just pray for pepper..Good luck..

                    wasnt the 1st zimbabwe national lottery won by the president?

                    yeah its rigged and its doable.

                     

                    it rigged like casino's are rigged, the odds are in their favor. why go further when you have people apy in $1 and if lucky get 60c back? why go to further cheating when u have the best game in town. all working on your favor.

                     

                    sure they could do  it. especially with computerised draws. but do they, nah, they alkready have the odds rigged.

                    2014 = -1016; 2015= -1409; 2016 JAN = -106; FEB= -81; MAR= -131; APR= - 87: MAY= -91; JUN= -39; JUL=-134; AUG= -124; SEP = -123; OCT= -84  NOV=- 73 TOT= -3498

                    keno historic = -2291 ; 2015= -603; 2016= JAN=-32, FEB= +12 , MAR= -86, APR = -77. MAY= -48, JUN= -29, JUL=-71; AUG = -52; SEPT= -43; OCT = +56 NOV = -33 TOT= -3297

                              Think of ALL the states that play MM and/or PP times how many tickets are sold? DO you honestly think their system could check all those tickets to see what numbers have been played?

                              "Think of ALL the states that play MM and/or PP times how many tickets are sold? DO you honestly think their system could check all those tickets to see what numbers have been played?"

                              Absolutely! The numbers that are played are encoded in the bar code at the bottom of your ticket, it is how they can check to see if there is a winner in the tickets sold, they would have to know the numbers you chose, would they not? And they can have that info in a heart beat. The only reason it takes as long as an hour to post them is all the hoops they have to go through to make sure it is correct and all legit (legal hoopla).

                              Now, do I believe they do this in the MM or PB games, NO, not at all. They have no way to track who owns the tickets for the most part. But I didn't want you to underestimate their ability to track what is played. Because it is done and done easily.
