    If you have the technology and HD TV, you can record the drawings at very high resolution and play them back later in slow motion.  If there is hanky panky in the "Machine Room," it will be detectable this way.  Remembering what happened in Pittsburgh back in 1980 with the conspiracy to inject paint into certain balls, I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of Lottery Commissions do this routinely to keep their people honest!

      I like watching live drawings. I have seen both, and live drawings appeal to me much more. I was very confused when DC switched from live to computerized drawings in 2004. I thought they were still drawing with balls but they computerized the results. I found the ball drawings much more entertaining.

      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!

          That never happened again after PA had their Senior Citizens keep an eye on their drawings!

              I've said this not only once, but a hundred times.

              The damage done by a ball drawing is 100 times worse than worrying whether an isolated incident like PA, is going to happen again, Or whether some computer geek is in cahoots with a lottery official and is purposely rigging a computer program a certain way, then have the program self destruct with no trace so the illicit program will not remain.

              WOW ....Twilight Zone anyone?

              The damage done to the flow of numbers, multiple times on a daily basis, far outweighs unrealistic culprits that may only exist in the imaginative mind. Every single day, the ball officials go out of their way to rotate tubes without notifying the public of what the new tube locations are. They go out of their way to do pre-tests to even throw the flow of numbers even more skewed.

              I'm surprised they don't have a third hurdle for the ball to jump over.....

                joker17,

                Just what, specifically, is the "flow of numbers" you refer to?

                Some of the ways I routinely attempt to convert a repeatable Pseudo-Random sequence generator into a TRULY RANDOM sequence generator is to interrupt it and "kick it" forward a random number of times based on physical phenomena like low order ambient temperature or computer system clock changes.

                    Joker, how about clarifying that when the mushrooms wear off? Saying it once clearly is better than 101 times messed up zoning around in the twilight zone. I know you understand what you wrote, it’s the rest of us that weren’t along for the ride that wonder what you are trying to say.

                    Do you like,... man,.... really believe the balls do some kind of damage to the cosmic flow of things in upsetting some kind of system that is being defeated by pre-test Jinn? Do the tubes go to or from different dimensions of lotto karma? Do different tubes have different chakras and belong in only one place or order? Do you really believe what you said, because from the context it’s hard to tell if you like live draws, computer draws or just don’t care? Mind outlining what the first two hurdles are so we can follow along too? The flow of understanding is a bit skewed Shifty, but it is entertaining.
