More or less inclined to play MM/PB if the numbers were picked by a Random Computer Generator?

Would not seeing the balls being spinned around change your impression or betting on the game?

Personally l say- let the spinning of the balls continue into " infinity and beyond"- Transparency matters, especially when money is involved, your money.

 Thoughts?

    I'll be through playing PB or MM if they ever go that route.

    I don't even play my own state's games cuz they're fake computer drawings, I drive to another state.

    If everything went to fake computer drawings, I would just quit playing the lottery completely.

          Would quit playing the lottery, even tho I barely play now if it turned into a computer drawing I wouldn't give them another penny.

            Does that mean everybody else wants fake computer drawings?

              Seems that way rdgrnr doesn't it. I can't see the MM/ PB lottery going that route.Imagine the # of investigations into " inside job wins". For instance:  The cousin of the manager of the lottery came away with a  $70 mil win, the half sister who was on foodstamps a month ago is now the sole winner of the $180 mil PB jackpot..

                  Less inclined to play.

                  As for:

                   Imagine the # of investigations into " inside job wins".

                  I don't know if the Massachusetts lottery is computerized or not but there have been quite a few 'wiseguys' (AHEM!) win it.

                  Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                  Lep

                  There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                      I also would stop playing if it was computer generated.  I happen to like the bouncing balls and I feel it is on a better playing field.  I very seldom play any of the Indiana state games for this same reason.

                        Yeah, Indiana'a got an "F" grade on the Lottery Post State Lottery Report Card.

                        You're lucky that you're not too far from Ohio though, which has an "A+" grade.

                              Cuz she can slide right over the border to Hicksville and get her some tickets on real ball drawing games.
