    Good for you for signing in what you believe in, I just don't think it's going to

    change anything, its just cheaper for them go with computer picks.

        Hey Carvella,

        Go to Results on the Blue Bar up top and mash down on "Help Eliminate Computerized Drawings" at the bottom of the drop-down doohickey.

          How does one check if computerized drawings are random, or selective, like Russian Roulette? They will not have professor from Harvard inspecting, will they?

          That's a bad part. Everyone should sign the petition. The alternative is to try and crack computer pattern.

          In general such change means that the type of people who wins will be different from now on. Whomever did not win big before... oh, that's us. :)

          In general big prize winners pool will dwindle  thanks to computers.

                I signed the petiton.

                The thing that bothers me about computers picking the numbers is that they are ...... COMPUTERS!!!  Sure, supposedly the numbers are picked using RNGs, but how do we know FOR SURE what the computer is actually doing to spit out the numbers?  They can be programmed to do whatever ... they are computers!

                My paranoia is that they are tied to the lottery-purchasing terminals, and could be programmed to recognze things like various patterns, large sets of numbers that may be played from week to week, other things that people (such as from this forum) may post that could give a bit of advantage, etc., etc. ... then when the numbers are being drawn, if too many numbers fall on some of these patterns / etc., that computer could kick-out one of the numbers and replace it with something else.  Who would ever know ... except the programmer?  Paranoia?  Yes ... a bit.

                At least with televised ping-pong-ball machines, you can see what is happening.

                Of course, I'm preaching to the choir HERE ... right?

                  i agree, so who's to say they want the jackpot to get larger to build up there bank account and like you stated are the draw systems directly to the system that picks the numbers ,that means it would have to draw the same numbers 2 times in one day ...oh but wait ....it's all random...ya my as$$Thumbs Up

                    This is the best idea i have heard in a while no1 has had a gooder idea than this one.

                    I will tell u this there is no way they are saving money they are gaining more money by a computer.

                    And i will say this the powerball drawings are just a replica of the computer picking the numbers.

                    Once the computer picks the numbers the lottery go ahead and mock the numbers the computer picked.

                    Its true they use computers for a reason because the computer knows all the combinations and

                    it can pay out a balanced amount thats porfitable for the lotteries. bottom line.

                    No too pick on the powerball but i will say this,

                    The thing in the middle is never consistent it never picks the balls up the same amount of time.

                    U will get a day where is picks one ball up in 2 secs then the next one its takes 3 seconds

                    its never consistent.This play a important role in random drawings that u get a consistent machine

                    and not something that isnt consistent

                      I can't understand if you are saying you like the computer drawings or you prefer ball draws.

                       

                      Because remember, Tennessee had a MAJOR glitch with their computer drawing machine. That's after two separate entities said it was good to go. Because of the glitch, a large section of the players had ZERO chance in winning. Also look at lottery machines giving duplicated quick picks. I would take a faulty ping pong ball machine over a computer draw.

                       

                      I'll sign. I can trust a computer to pick my numbers, but I'd rather it have nothing to do with the draw.
