What would you do if you checked the last pre-test drawings for your megamillions ticket and you hit it exactly in the pre draw.

        There's a better chance of that happening than matching the official drawing since there are more of them.  There's a good chance you could match the official PB drawing or one of its pre-test drawing too but the only one that count if you're playing MM is its official drawing for the date on your ticket according to the game rules.  As an adult I would accept the fact that  I didn't win and move on.

              RJOh, this is the most sensible and reasonable response to the OP's question...PERIOD!! Also, thanks for being str8 forward about it. I've mentioned several times already on how I won on Pick 3 during the pre-draws and ended up losing on the official draw. I'd be willing to bet that many others have as well but just haven't said anything, or, just aren't members here at LP. Hey, it HAS TO HAPPEN and this is why lotteries conduct those BS pre-draws!

              Pre-draws are a legal way of beating the player...that's it. There's no need to check a machine's function by drawing numbers up to (5) times before the next official draw. I can understand a CARD GAME requiring that the cards be shuffled to mix up all the cards before re-dealing because the winner's cards are probably all together upon gathering the last hand, okay. But, the minute they start that lottery machine, those balls are already being "shuffled", if you will, which doesn't necessitate any type of draw other than the official one.

              Look at Roulette. After they spin the table and let the ball land where it will, they don't spin the table and let it land again up to (5) times before the "Next Official Landing".....RIGHT???? Once that table is spinning, they drop the ball and whatever happens just happens. See what I mean here? This is why Lucky sticks to Roulette where the odds are much, much better and FAIR...and I do well. While I try to give others here advice on Pick 3 and how to possibly win, I don't play it much at all like I used to.

              They should just use the very first draw as the official draw and post the numbers. but that's just too much like RIGHT and FAIR to them. Good post, man!!

                L.L. 

                I can even one up this. Take a look at the Craps Game. Are there up to (5) "pre-rolls" before the actual official roll??? Nope...didn't think so. Once they leave the hand, that's it. Winners win and losers lose...and it's the way it should be with everything EXCEPT A CARD GAME. The states know this but, they crutch the process on Fairness and Machine Function. Yeah, okay...

                    It's called "pre-drawing tests" and how about posting the MM ticket so we all can see it.
