As a Lottery Player, I want to request an audit or attendance at my state  lottery drawings.  Does anyone know if this is allowed?  Should be since we the players are who pay for the lotteries, lottery office management, overhead, etc.  For the biggies MEGAm & POWERb,  player groups should be allowed to attend/witness the live draws at the state that manages these games, e.g. Iowa and Georgia.  What do you think?  In other words, I WANT TO SEE FOR MYSELF THOSE BALLS FALL FROM THE MACHINES.  Hyper

    I'm sure most states have some procedures to attend the live drawings.(if any)

    Check your state lottery website or contact customer service.

    Here is CA Lottery example:

        One of the Candians here on LP posted a few years back about witnessing the whole procedure from the pre test to the actual drawing a couple of times and said it was all legit.

        I'm sorry I can't remember their username.

        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.

          I'd be curious to see a MM/PB draw in person one of these days, to see what the man behind the curtain is really doing. Until then, this video is pretty good:

          But still, I can think of ways to rig it. Ever been to a magic show? Any top magician could pull off a trick with an apparatus like the MM/PB bouncing ball machines, guarantee it! Naughty
