Louisiana for instance has not conducted live drawings since 1998 claiming live drawings cost too much money, and it is less secure.

Their official answer to why they did away with live drawings is "The Lottery's need to soundly manage its operating costs outweighs the entertainment value that live drawings provide"

They also don't publish their pre-tests.

What other states are like this?  Does anyone really think it matters whether they have live drawings or not?

    Go to results in the blue bar on top. On the drop down menu, click on state lottery report card, also click on help eliminate computerized drawings. Yes, it matters.

      I would think what they are saving in 'operating costs' (as if they couldn't afford to broadcast live dawings) they are losing in trust.

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

      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.

        The Kentucky Lottery came up with a unique way to cut operating costs and still show the live drawing. For security purposes they taped all the drawings so they simply offer that by live streaming via the Internet. After the numbers are drawn, two auditors holding clip boards will verify the results and one of them will announce and repeat the winning numbers.

        It turned out to be a low cost improvement because the Midday drawings are live streamed too.

            Oklahoma state games are all computer generated. It makes it hard to play the Cash 5 & Pick 3&4.

              So how does it work in a computerized state? No balls, no chambers, so what gives?

              Is there a guy or gal who pushes this big red button and the digital numbers pop up individually on some screen? lol

              "LIVE" Drawing must be correct, some LIVE person hit the button. Green laugh

               

               

              But back to the machines. lol 

              Ok, it's a wrap everyone, except that tonight is our turn to perform 9 post tests just to make sure the machine will work properly tomorrow.

              I say we have a county commissioner's meeting to elevate the number of times lottery officials do a pre test, just to make extra sure. How about 12?

              This way, when a machine does actually break during one of those 12 pre and post tests, we can proudly claim that our method served it's purpose. We caught the breakdown red handed people!!!!    SEE? It worked !   I'm fully aware of my decision, I admit I encouraged the breakdown of the machines, but let's not talk about that. Instead of the machine's intended rate of usage, I sped up the machine's demise by encouraging friction, wear and tear, and final breakdown. lol
