California uses 3 draw machines and 6 ball sets randomly chosen for each draw, giving 18 possible machine/ball set combinations.  Is data re what machine/ball set was used for each draw available somewhere? Understanably, the lotto commission isn't volunteering this info, but is it available if requested or demanded?

      Mabey the accounting firm that audit's the draws  in Cali.

             I've e-mailed the powerball  accounting Firm before

                    and they were pretty quick and Straight- forward

        I've seen those types of machines online but they are under the BINGO catagory.

        Think I saw one for sale for about $3,000

         

        I bought me one of these for the 6/49 game.

        Don't know whyWhat? I don't really use it and always end up using Quick Picks for my ticket.

          In Texas they post what ball sets they use for each of the 4 pretests along with the pretest results about an hour prior to each draw. I do not know if or where they post that info for the actual draw. Maybe based on the pre draw sets a person could somehow figure out what ball set was going to be used for the live drawing?

              How does that work ?

              electric ?

              air pressure ?

              looks like a way to pick #s thats as good as any other.

                One or two batteries and press the button.
