Since lotteries are run by government, shouldn't the preparation process be publicly available as well?
I saw the video for Power ball and kept on thinking. Here are the facts that I can't get out of the head. It turns out to be, that they run 4 tests before the drawing and one test after the drawing. Besides that, there are 4 machines that they use. Fine, this is what they do, they might have their reasons for it, but since its run by the government, shouldn't that information be available somewhere?
Just think about it, knowing which machine produced which numbers gives you extra info. Knowing what other results were produced gives you extra info as well.
They are doing hundreds of recordings, but what use does it have, if nobody can see it?
It seems unfair that audit guys, who actually get paid for it, are exposed to this information and we are not.
Another thought, isn't it true that if you use 4 machines, your odds of getting your number decrees 4 times? so it should be 175mil x 4?
