I probably can have any number they want come up those tubes. To have the the same number four days in a roll,thats simply not possible!

If you were as seasoned as I am You'd know that randomness can come in clumps, then go back. That's why it's random, anything can happen, no rhyme or reason. It doesn't have to make sense. Bottom line. lol

          I often wonder if State lotteries pay foreign exchange students to smile and hold fake checks.

            delaware is computer generated but they can still cheat  which they do  a lot

            Last year in one month Kentucky paid out 97% of their Pick-3 ticket sales in prizes and just last week, North Carolina paid out $7.4 million on one Pick-4 drawing. Both of those lotteries are ball drawn, but an RNG could be programmed not to draw heavily played combinations. Triples and Quads always have more than average play, but there are lots of other combos if drawn could cut into the profits.

            I'm not saying the RNGs are not programmed to be random, but how many people have seen those programs?

                  Absolutely not. If you're not winning it's because of the odds of the games...that's all. I don't understand it when I read people saying that "such and such state CHEATS." How do they cheat? Can you prove it? Just because a same number is drawn a few times in a row? What does that mean really? Same thing happens in roulette or video keno. I see some numbers come up quite a few times in a row and then they fall out and cycle back through later. Guess you can call all gambling games a cheat then. Or...is it just....randomness??

                      But why do they need to do 3 pretests and 3 post tests?

                      Is it to make sure the machine is working properly? Well, the more they use the machines, the sooner they will fail do to wear and tear. Like the other poster said, it's like going out to your car every 15 minutes to start it just to make sure it starts. That starter won't last as long as someone who doesn't do it, so what the lottery is doing makes no sense unless they're purposely trying to make sure patterns don't develop.

                      In their attempt to make sure the machines work properly, they are simultaneously defeating the whole purpose by expediting the wear and tear. Basically shooting themselves in the foot. And that's why i believe the reason is false, it's just an excuse. And If they think we're that stupid to believe such nonsense, they're the ones that must be dumb. BS

                        It's really very simple. If you know they do the tests (and that information is availale to anyone who wants t know) you know which drawing will be the one that matters.

                        As for patterns developing, how will more drawings keep patterns from developing? If you think that knowing what has happened in the past is going to help, the test draws means there's more information to use.

                          Please correct me, but I don't know which set is being used, and on what rotation schedule. They go out of their way to suppress information, keeping the masses at bay.

                            You're missing the point. I said they purposely disrupt the natural fllow of numbers by interrupting the flow with assumptions, whether those assumptions are right or not doesn't matter, the disruption to the flow was successfull. A ripple throwing a monkey wrench into the picture.
