I was just going over some of my stuff. I got to noticing a few things and had a question.

I know they use so many hoppers. Some to test with i think and one that they show and do the actual draws with live.

I think they test with some. It may be that they test them to make sure they all work correctly. No balls get stuck, the air blows and such.

I was just curious to know if they had a certain amount for the 3 and 4 games and if anyone knew how many.

I know they swap out and use different ones each draw or something to that nature also.

Many thanks in advance!!!

    Maybe you could write you state lottery and find out, I am sure things vary from state to state.

      I dont think they use hoppers in the sense of a production facility where you just throw everything in the top.

      In NY, for the pick 5 games, they put the numbers in plastic or glass columns in a particular order that rotates from draw to draw.

      The pick 3 has all the numbers put in a round chamber, so i dont think they use 'hoppers' per se.

        Try doing a search for PRE DRAWS. This may answer your questions.

        The numbers will tell you what numbers to play. Pay attention to the numbers.

        Don't just think outside the box, crush it.

          Hi sully16,

          Thank you for the response. That's probably what I'll have to do. It's just for a little experiment.

          Thank you much!!!

            Im not sure what they're called. LOL. Just the machines they do the draws in. I was thinking they have multiple sets and run all of them. For backups and such. I don't know exactly.

            I know here, they have what looks like one large container for the 3 and 4 and each is separated with the balls 0-9 in each. I figure it out.

            Thank you though.

              Thank you also, grwurston.

              I'll do that also. If i can find anything it will be here I'm sure.

              Thanks again.

                If you go to the Texas lottery site and navigate to the pick3 section it will show the pre-draws, with the machine and ball sets used.  They are very specific on their testing procedures and what will constitute a failed test and the use of alternate machine and ball sets.

                Not sure if your looking for a specific state or any state to do your tests against.

                  Thanks a bunch jimjwright.

                  It doesn't matter which state neccessarily. I was basicly needing to know if they run the pre tests in separate hoppers at one after the other, or just used the same one. I found a page for pre-draws for here in NC, but would like to test other states also. So, that will work. I will find that also.

                  Thanks a bunch!!!!
