      Thank You so Much CW4, by the way where did you get this from?  Can I find out the same info for various different states?

          Thanks CarliG but I have the report card.  I don't think this have been updated and maybe a little bit outdated.  I will have to check with Todd.  As you know the Iowa Lottery are now conducting its own drawings and they are now random generated.  But if you were to go to the game information listed on this site like what CW4 posted for Iowa its still reading that they have mechanical drawings when this isn't true any longer.  So I don't know how reliable this information is here.  Thanks

            Can anyone confirm that this is the actual drawing for Illinois My 3 game because if this is it, it doesn't appear to be mechanical at all.

             

            Here is the link to what I believe is the drawing, can anyone again confirm this?

                Yes, the My3 drawings are mechanical.  I spoke with the Illinois Lottery on this when the game debuted.  It uses the same exact equipment as the regular Pick 3 draws.

                Can you tell me where you got the info about Iowa using computers for the Pick 3/4 drawings?  I will certainly contact them to ask about the drawings, but if you have a link that would be quicker.

                The info on this site (in the report card) is as accurate as can be.  I actually contact the lotteries directly about the drawings for any game I'm unsure about.  (To address your concern in another post.)

                 

                Check the State Lottery Report Card
                What grade did your lottery earn?

                  Nevermind on the Iowa drawing thing.  I found the info on their blog (in the comments at the bottom), and you're right they are now computerized.  (Ugh. No Nod)  I have updated the Game Information pages for the games as well as the Report Card.

                    Thanks, Todd was just getting ready to write you.  Yea I seen the Iowa drawing in their blog section as well in the comment section.  Are you certain the My 3 games are mechanical?  If its not to much can you check the link "here"  that I posted, because I am not sure if I am looking at the actual drawing or not.   It appears to be the drawing.  I click watch drawing and then numbers just fall down but if you are right then this is really good news for me.  I get to play the MY 3 and the Pick 3.

                      Like I said, I spoke with the lottery directly.  So unless they were lying to me, My3 is mechanical.  I understand the drawings are not televised and that link shows an animation, but the drawings are mechanical, according to the lottery.  I would encourage you to contact the lottery yourself if you have any doubts.

                          Thanks Todd, just wanted to be certain before I enter in a whole year worth of numbers in my database for the My3 game.
