ridge ole pal it's THIER game THIER rules..If you don't like THIER game and THIER rules don't play..That is tiggs rule to live by..Good luck ole pal ridge..

It's not a privately run game tiggs, this ain't no casino we're talking about. It's a state run game. The state belongs to us. Our elected officials are hired and paid as representatives to represent us. That means they should be responsive to our wishes.

I'm not saying they should take a vote from the public for every decision they make but at least take our concerns into consideration once in a while.

We're smashin the taters and they're takin all the gravy.

      I've shown many exmaples in the past revealing the flaws that balls have, not just computer draws.

        Well, I'd like to see some of those exmaples.

        What are they now, oaks or pines?

        Don't say lilacs either, I ain't goin for it.

          1. They don't release the pre-test results. If they do, you have to jump thru hoops to get them.

          2. They switch tubes around.

          3. They don't reveal the NEW tube positions.

          4. They claim the reason for pre-tests are to make sure the machine doesn't break down. The machine will break no matter how many pre-tests you do. It could break down right after a pre-test.

          5. They actually encourage a breakdown of the machine by having pre-tests done. There's no such thing as perpetual motion, so they are exasberating the issue. The more they run the machine, the more wear and tear, resulting in failure much sooner.....thus defeating their purpose.

                One thing I know the lottery hasn't figured out is........................................What dimension/s my socks go to when doing laundry.

                Think I found a couple of yours at the local laundromat!  I'll forward them to the Florida Lottery!

                  Well I finally got throught to them and they said they will send me the results as you saw under the FOI Act, however they will charge me for it!

                  I don't know how much!!!   I think is a small mailing fee  plus another fee of  some sort .. in any event I will have it!!!   

                  Tiggs as far as trying to explain the reason for the  test draw??!

                  It will take a personal small seminar with you the brain and rd will have to be around to take you through the steps..... and then you'll say you have to lay down... it could get ugly...LOL...LOL..Tiggs just keep doing what you are doing!!!

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

                  Now, does it count??

                    I do not understand the significance of pre-tests or any value to be obtained by knowing them. 

                    If you were to use only the fifth draw as a basis for your research, you are still on solid ground.  Much knowledge can be gained in this fasion.  In fact, many polls use this same technique to determine the general population.

                    Now the number of pre-tests might be a different story.  If they vary how many pre-tests they do before the actual draw, your field of research will be skewed.

                      That technique is called sampling.  You don't have to eat the whole bowl of soup to know what it tastes like when you can sample a spoon full of it and know the same thing.

                        Computerized drawings, in my opinion, are a lot less fun to watch than ball drawings. I like watching the balls fly up and down in the machines.

                        Today's winning 3-ball is going to be a number between 000 and 999.

                        In a lot of states, lotteries benefit education. That makes the REAL winners the only people who can't play!

                          I understand your pain, and i think you understand my pain too.

                          A certain combo that I may have been tracking shows up in a pre-test. You say that it's luck for the most part, and you are correct. However, You brought up the subject pertaining to why seasoned pros should win more often, and luck prevails.....well...........the reason we don't have the expected results, is because of the problems I pointed out. By doing the things they do, the officials purposely, or unwittingly, skew the outcome of the natural flow of draws. I can fill in the blanks if I knew what the pre-test results were.
