Hello,

I'm new to the site, and before i came here I never thought about the lottery being fixed. The posts I've read here makes sense, and has me doubting the veracity of the lotteries. I also disagree with  having anonymous winners, if you take the opportunity to play, you should have to accept the fact that people will know who you are. The lotteries are too easy to corrupt with no major oversight. The 1980 pennsylvania lotto scam is an example how it's possible to fix the lotteries. Anyone knows who oversees these lotteries?

    Both Powerball and Mega Millions are supervised by the Multi-State Lottery Association aka "MUSL." Their website is a little outdated but has relevant information. Both the PB and MM websites also have information related to game security etc.

    If the chances of winning the jackpot are so slim, why play when the jackpot is so small? Your chances never change, but the potential payoff does.
    If a crystal ball showed you the future of the rest of your life, and in that future you will never win a jackpot, would you still play?

      They oversee themselves, although outside observers are also allowed. Integrity is everything. If lots of people doubt the authenticity of the drawings, sales will suffer.

        Also since all participating state lotteries are sending them more than 30% of their MM/PB sales dollars for the jackpots, they also have an interest in their drawings being on the level.
