      Its a 2.5 hr process to set up machines

      If I can recall. They have 9 ball machines and about 15 sets of balls

      And 2 laptops for that All or nothing game

       

      I could touch and look at everything.  Except 1 thing the balls. 

       

      They would not let me touch the BALLS

        The Machines are all standalone machines

         

        The balls are rubber for daily games

        Except for Ga 5. They use ping pong balls

         

        They will be ending Ga 5 soon.

          They use 2 different auditing  companys. 

          1 for midday. And 1 for evening. 

           

          All winning results get called in to Gtech immediately. 

          They then  Determine if draw can be official. 

          Then they call Ga lottery headquarters to tell them it was officialized from gtech

            Sounds like you had a good time, congrats on the experience.

                2.5 hours? 

                I bet 2 of those hours were spent on pre-tests, like Florida probably does. Green laugh

                  I forgot all about pretest. 

                   3 for cash4. 3 for cash3

                  It was 6 in all. 

                  Balls were always put in in numerical order. 

                   

                  Live draw balls were put in anyorder.

                        I asked same question.

                        Basically durning pretest.  They open ball case.  And put them into tube. In order

                        0-1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9

                         

                        They say they do it so auditor can verify all balls are being used..

                          Very cool and very interesting. They seem to be pretty transparent in the process and it was nice to hear about your experience.

                          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?

                            I hope this is true. About Ga 5 ending soon.

                            Glad you were able to travel down from Portland, TN to WSB Atlanta to attend the live drawing, lol
