    As a proud wearer of the Tin-Foil Hat, I wll also agree with your assesment that the lottery folks are lazy.  RNG are much easier to work than holding to a TV schedule, testing machines, loading the machines, loading the balls one does not want to come into play, loading the auditor with liquor 30 minutes before the "mouse click", and loading the bonus paycheck when payouts are minimized.

    I Agree!

    Good luck to everyone!

      Yes, however those "test draws" which they don't show the results of is reason for concern! 

      Pre and post test results are normally considered public information and are available for viewing.  Have been told that sometimes you have to go to lottery headquarters to see those results but they don't seem to be any big secret.

      Good luck to everyone!

            I just made a call to My NYC Lottery Office headquarters!!  and all I received was  an Automated System! With  the regular informations.

             And no human voice to speak to, about providing the results of the "test draw for the day" so it does seem to be a"secret" 

            forget what "they" say about youWhat you say about you?...

            Now, does it count??

                    Very interesting indeed!  I wonder if more signatures on Todds petition for True Lottery Drawings would put a damper on something like this?

                    Excellent post by the way.

                    I don't know, seeing they'd probably just say that "while 6,000 people don't like computerized drawings, 600,000 don't care, and hence we dont care." My solution, get 6,000,000 signatures. Maybe they'd care then.

                    Sometimes, I get discouraged.

                    (insert signature here)

                      It’s more than being lazy to run a RNG, think $.

                      Now when a live televised event is dropped , all that budgeted expense can be shifted elsewhere.

                      The people in the office cubes can get,…. More money for other things,…. Like raises. Or host a big USA/Canada conference with FUN, FUN, FUN at plush and swank resorts. Get first class executive passage on 'business' trips. How about expanding the fleet autos? There is lot’s of places this money can go and it will not be back to you. Some of the highest paid public jobs are at the lottery divisions.

                      It’s good to be the king! 

                      Especially when no one can look over your shoulder.

                        About playing the lottery --  You will lose more than you win. Until you hit a jackpot.  Then everything changes!

                            Good explanation.

                            Funny thing is.....the machine can still break down during the draw. In fact, the more pre-tests they perform, the more wear and tear they impose on the machine, therefore increasing the entropy of the product. It's self defeating, and not a good enough reason in my opinion.....

                            No such thing as perpetual motion.......At least not yet....
