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

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

    No LV, actually I'm talkin' about a real town right across the border from her - Hicksville, Ohio.

    I bet the people who live there hate when people ask where they're from, lol.

        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'm wondering how many people that say they wouldn't play a computerized game buy raffle tickets.

                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 do.

                    Good point, CT.

                    It'd be nice if we could change that too.

                      That's a good point, but I participated in many reverse raffles and the usual format was each number was placed into a capsule and drawn one at a time. It took over an hour with just 100 entries. Some of these lottery raffles have 250,000 entries and over 1000 different prize winners so it would be difficult and time consuming if the same method was used.

                      While they were ball drawings, up until last year Kentucky's midday Pick-3 and Pick-4 drawings were not a live broadcast. Last year because of cost, the KY lottery could no longer televise the evening drawings, but came up with a unique way to now stream the midday and evening ball drawings live via the Internet.

                      IMO, in games where an RNG choose our numbers, drawing the winners by RNG makes no difference, but in the games where we can choose our own numbers, we should be able to see the drawing process.
