I was hoping the person would come through.

If you created that phrase, you should patent it. lol

    So Texas removes the ballset if a number appears 5 or more times. Why? Wouldn't that be a completely random event?

    Numbers appear more times than that in the official drawings quite regularly. If they remove the ballset, aren't they trying

    to control the randomness of the drawings and prevent something that is supposed to be completely random from occurring?

    The numbers will tell you what numbers to play. Pay attention to the numbers.

    Don't just think outside the box, crush it.

        You said it, " removes".

        Have you ever woken up from a cool dream only to find yourself desperately trying to return where you left off?

        The natural flow was disturbed.

          I got this off the internet.

          You may have heard that you are more likely to be hit on the head by a meteorite than to win the lottery. This is certainly so. Assuming that the game is honest, the odds are roughly one in several hundred million. Even with these odds, lottery commissions are not satisfied. The lottery is rigged.

          The giant multi-state and individual state lotteries are more fixed than pro wrestling. The jackpots go up and up, with no winners. People get lottery fever. Millions nationwide are willing to wait in a line just like the ones for bread in the former Soviet Union for the pipe dream of striking it rich. The rigging works like this: super computers keep track of each combination sold, and then the ping-pong balls are weighted to assure that a losing combination comes up. On rare occasions, all possible combinations are sold, and they must let someone win. Only then is the game is honest.

          Why? The lottery, which is a state-run version of the Mafia's numbers racket, is a great money grab scam, as long as it brings in more than it pays out. In the past, lotteries were abolished because they lost money.The worst part of this is whom it hurts. The poor and desperate are the most common victims of lottery fever. Children go hungry and senior citizens go without their medication because of it. People prone to gambling addiction also blow huge sums.

          We spoke with an employee at a state lottery agency. We can not reveal his name or even which state, as some of the same gangsters who ran the numbers racket now run the lottery, and they would kill him. “Yes, I personally am involved in it. Lottery ping-pong balls have a small valve, like a basketball or soccer ball, only it’s very tiny, and nearly invisible. We use a hypodermic needle to inject heavier-than-air gasses such as radon into the balls we don’t want to come up. At first, we tried helium in the ones we did want to rise, but they jumped up so quickly that it was obvious. Lotteries are raking in much more than if the games were honest, and people don’t know they have literally no chance!”“If you think about it logically, you certainly don’t play anyway. You are betting that you can predict which six of 45 or more balls are going to come out of the hopper. In some games, the order even matters! It’s a sucker’s bet, and that’s when it’s honest! Most drawings are rigged, making the odds zero in infinity! The lottery is not only a tax on people who don’t understand math; it is an unfair and unjust tax. Didn’t we have the American Revolution over taxes like that?”

          Dang! Another troll.

          Why is it always a newbie that gets on here and starts with the lottery is rigged bs.

          Dude, nobody really is interested in what you think about the lottery. This is a forum about playing the lottery and sharing ideas.

            Pre-tests with Horse racing would be so cruel if it existed, and that's the only reason it's not being conducted. After 6 runs, those poor horses would be sooo tired. Not to mention three post-tests.

            It's much easier to shuffle machines on wheels. lol

                      I agree.  All they would have to do is maybe add more balls. (which indeed is a gamble on their part)

                      I would rather bet on dog racing, football, and boxing matches, all of which can never be rigged.  (Although sometimes I get the uneasy feeling the referee is thinking about the next lottery drawing)
