What does this "States Lotteries Report Card" on the site here mean; and what does it say about the lotteries? Are the numbers tampered with? How are the data arrived at? Curious...
This page is a work-in-progress, and will continue expand in scope and functionality over time. Although the title is "State Lottery Report Card", this report card includes Canada and United Kingdom lotteries, in addition to the United States.
States (jurisdictions) with a higher proportion of games using traditional lottery ball machines receive higher rankings in this report card than those using computer random number generators.
Lottery Post is a proponent of true lottery drawings using player-visible drawing methods. Even though states using computers claim that they are auditable and valid, Lottery Post believes the transparency and common sense approach of using mechanical drawing machines provides a more fun and confidence-inspiring experience for the lottery player, and therefore we recommend players seek out those games using real lottery drawing equipment.
If you want to help boost your state's rankings (or keep your state ranked high), we urge you to contact your state Lottery Director and government representatives, and let them know you don't want computerized lottery drawings.
