Hi all, first post here, and this topic has always interested me. Although I lean more towards the "Not Rigged" side, mainly due to the massive # of combinations for Powerball & Mega Millions, but some food for thought.

 

How "out of the norm" would it be with the technology we have today, for within the 1 hour cutoff time, the possibility of a computer database processing all the tickets sold within that hour, and generating a "non-winning" combination? Thus translating to the video draw, where ping pong balls can easily be manipulated, ever so slightly, to favor not being picked or picked?

 

Again, I only bring this up to welcome your comments and thoughts, as I really believe its not rigged. Too many winners over the years, and winners in very random places.

 

Hey glad to be a part of the community now, looking forward to more lottery chat :)

    Welcome Raiden. Party

    Simply put : Its Impossible to tell how the spinning Balls will fall. If there was a method to foresee this event- mathematicians would have pounced on this loophole a long time ago. Pure Chance- nothing else.

    People who say it cannot be done should not interrupt those who are doing it- George Bernard Shaw.

        It would not be easy to manipulate the balls.

        You or anyone from the public can attend a live drawing, at least here in Va., and see how they do it live.

          That is what I wonder.  Considering how far  technology has come along,  I wouldn't be surprised if they were doing it.

            Unless the jackpot is huge, they don't even sell all the possible combinations. So there is a very good chance no one wins a jackpot. Of course, somebody will win a smaller jackpot periodically. That's why I play every draw. I'm happy with second prize.

            If someone doesn't want to play, it should be because of the astronomical odds, not because they think it's rigged. With the odds of MM and PB they don't need to bother trying to rig it. Not to mention trying to control all those ping pong balls so that certain ones don't play. Really???

                Im with you........these computers know the payouts...........they can't payout more than they take in........and with ball drops  payout is random.....

                tennessee wants to control this.  who is sitting at that computer?.......what time do they get there to perfom pre-test draws?........do they have time

                to call a loved one and say hey this is about to drop?.........yes it is possible.  we have to wait 20 minutes for restults.....and tennessee has a "F" on

                their rating.  They knew that people were frozen on those days, and they knew the plays were low on the ice days, and i said the same thing unless you

                played your numbers in advance for so many days .....bam triple......falls.  Cheaters is all i can say......and rigged for sure.

                You can't control the wind, but you can adjust your sails

                  So let me get this straight, publishing the names of the winners is supposed to be the one and only true way to keep those with overly suspicious minds from ever thinking the lotteries are rigged, but the names are being published and the lotteries are still being accused of being rigged by those with overly suspicious minds. Say it isn't so. Every week there's some new accusation of rigging. Publishing the names is working like a charm.

                    Shhhhhhh,don't tell anyone but these names and pictures that are supposed to be winners are actually lottery employees, they really don't keep the money, they funnel it back into the system which supports global warming.... If those conspiracy folks only knew !!!!

                      I agree CDanaT...I never believed there are true winners in Tennessee,never see them on line,in pictures and about 3 times a year there will be big big payouts on the pick 4,rest of the time it is around 4 to 10 thousand a payout,its always been this low,,,,this lottery hs been running 10 years.....I guess thats what our Goverment wants...Just stay home down waste gas playing because you wont win.
