      In Pennsylvania, in 2000, the daily number WAS in fact fixed?

      It's true...and was called the "Triple Six Fix" when the three digits "666" came up and CASHED in for 3.5 million dollars. But it turns out that the ping pong balls were WEIGHTED down, with the exception of 4's and 6's, making the outcome mathematically almost impossible to miss for players. 7 people were indicted....

        But that fix was done to benefit a group of players and not the lottery. The real fix was made by the Tennessee Lottery when their pick-3 and pick-4 RNG was programed not to include repeating digits. For over 6 weeks all the drawing results were 3 or 4 different digits and nobody playing doubles could have won.

        Charges of defrauding the public were never made against the Tennessee Lottery Commission.

          I discarded my vote.  At this point in time there is no smoking gun as to whether or not the computer games are fixed.  Mistakes are being made such as the denials Tennessee made when they switched to RNG.  Ocasssonal events where balls are weighted down are rare such as the episode in Kentucky and the one mentioned here (which I had not heard about). 

          Having said this, my thoughts are that RNG's are manipulated to an extent.  Just what that extent might be is still unknown.  Ball drops are still the preferred method if for no other reason than the players can see what is happening. This is not true with RNG's. 

          Why would any lottery program opt to deny the players an opportunity to witness the numbers as they dropped out?  There can be only one reaon: to manipulate the outcome.  If anyone can think of another reason, I would like to hear it.

                    The poll is somewhat loaded, given that you can only answer fixed or not fixed.(conspiracy theory is same as not fixed)

                    But is it possible that a very small part of the lottery could be fixed? To that I would answer yes.

                    That is precisely the reason they do all the pre-checks on the RNG and the bouncing balls, because of the potential for tampering/fraud. And who is the fox guarding the henhouse? The government is littered with cases of fraud and abuse, and the Lottery Commission is part of the government. Do you trust all those guys and their business friends, and the computer guy running the machines?

                    Simple mantra: Trust but verify.

                    I don't believe the whole lottery is fixed and thus I continue to play. Just like anything, just because there could be some fraud doens't mean you throw up your hands and walk away. You watch and monitor, always pushing for full disclosure and transparency.

                    They would have to wait the right time and the right accomplice, pick the right game or portion of a game, and just tilt the odds in their favor slightly. That's all it would take. And then walk away quietly.

                        Why do people who really believe it's fixed play it?

                        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.

                        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.

                          There are a few problems with calling that  an example of a lottery being fixed. First, there's absolutely no evidence that it was done intentionally, which means it was a "just" a flaw. Second, what did it do to the odds of winning? If everybody picked their numbers randomly it wouldn't have had any effect. Obviously some people would have had no chance of winning, but those who didn't use doubles or triples would have had a better chance of winning. In fact, IIRC, some players seemed to catch on and made a point of avoiding doubles and triples, thereby increasing their chances of winning.

                            When you say "why are some #s shut off?" what do you mean? Do you mean " off" as in a person cannot purchase a particular # some days?

                             

                            If that is what you mean, the reason is that the lottery sets a liability limit. I believe here in FL the limit s $5 Million per pick. In other words, they want the max payout on any given # to be $5 Million. Once the potential payout reaches that amount they stop sales on that # combination. That is completely understandable, the lottery is running a business & they cant lose money

                             

                            BTW - If there is a certain combo that you want (1111/1121) then buy it in the morning! That way you still have a chance. Its not some conspiracy against Mitch13 ;) you just have to get the pick early. Same goes for more popular combos like 7777 or 5050

                              There's the case of Tennessee with their RNG no allowing doubles/triples, but aside from that I believe it's definitely not fixed. Ball drawings go through many different tests to ensure the numbers are pure randomness.
