Starting Feb 1 2014. The California Lottery will no longer post the videos of the drawing for Superlotto Plus. What do you think of this?

    Thumbs Down Bad move. I generally don't watch draw videos anyway, but the thing is to have them as part of the procedure for integrity and transparency.

    How hard is it to upload a youtube video? Geez.

    Maybe this is to get people used to other upcoming changes, like computer lotto draw. They don't post videos for the computer draws, like the guys running the draw machine for Fantasy 5, Daily 3, etc. That might be interesting to have or see once in a while.(but you unfortunately can't see the code running inside the machine...)

    But seems they are going backwards instead.

      Are they giving a reason why? Why cant they just post them on their website?

        "Starting February 1, 2014, the Lottery will no longer post videos of the SuperLotto Plus draw on our public website. But have no fear! Draws will still take place every Wednesday and Saturday night at 8 p.m. at Lottery Headquarters in Sacramento, and you’re more than welcome to come watch, as our draws remain open to the public. The winning SuperLotto Plus numbers will still be posted to calottery.com ASAP after the draw occurs every Wednesday and Saturday night, so you will have no trouble finding the winning numbers.
        Draw numbers are also available by calling 1-800-LOTTERY and press option 1."

          Yeah, like I'm gonna drive 6 hours (12 round trip) all the way to Sacramento to watch the draws in person.

          Tell you what calottery, instead of me coming there, why don't you put a camera where someone would be standing and observing the draws in the room, and record that and send it to me. Thanks. Anyone could do it with a smartphone even.

          In fact, better yet, why not create a free Youtube account and upload it there so others can see the video besides just me. Thanks. And do it every day for all ball and computer draws.

          Green laugh
