The Powerball lottery has gotten new machines.  They look similar and behave the same as the old ones, but they are new. And if you watch the last drawing video, they are not installed too well, the machines shake when "puffing" up the balls. Compare that video to the previous drawing video and you will see what I mean. 

Expect a few wild gyrations in your Powerball statistics fo a while.

The old machines were numbered 9 - 12, the new ones appear to be numbered 5 - 8 (or 3 - 6 need more drawings results to find out).

      yes, you are right the machines seem to have a rumble that they didn't have before. I'm not sure if these are new machines or the same machines that weren't installed properly. In any case, I hope they fix this issue because I usually look at the last 25 drawings when I pick my numbers and the old draws won't mean anything if there is a new factor (rumbling) that wasn't there before.

        It's just a temporary one time switch. They used a slightly different machine when the drawing was held in CA. They went back to the old machine when the next drawing was held in its usual place in FL.

        By the way, both machines shook but the one in CA was more obvious because the camera was closer to the machine.

          To be honest it looks like the machine is going to blow up.

            Why is that? I didn't even notice that the machine was shaking until someone mentioned it. I think it's very subtle. Certainly not worse than the vibration in your car.

              True, it vibrates a lot! I Agree!

                  I like these new Powerball machines. My California Super Lotto Plus contract came to an end on Saturday April 6th, 2013 because they're joining the game Powerball too. I want to say good luck to California joining the game Powerball.
