Rotate longer before the numbers are revealed? I realize that the collision between the balls makes it pretty * random , but a longer spin would satisfy my curiosity- Your thoughts? Suffucient rotation or not?

      Back in the day when they use three machines, there was a slight delay and it was almost like "sweating out" the third digit.

         The Lottery folks like Sam Arlen have to work in a certain time frame and limit. Due to televised air time.Rant  But, I do agree that the balls should be rotated longer.

            Aside from the limited timeframe they have to hold the draw, there is also a limit of when mixing the balls together longer has no improvement on the randomness of the draw. In other words, once the balls are mixed a certain amount of time and in a certain way (as prescribed by the machine's design), then mixing them longer is actually a waste of time and ball/machine life.

            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've watched some of the Québec Lottery's 3-ball/4-ball drawings. The whole thing is automated. No one is in the room when the drawing is taking place. The balls bounce up and down in the machine for about twenty seconds before all the numbers are pulled simultaneously. 

              Then you have the Mongolian national lottery. The balls are allowed to bounce around for about ten seconds before the first number is pulled, and it is 10-20 seconds between the pulling of the balls. There are three games - 4D (basically three Pick-4 drawings), 6D (like Ohio's Kicker), and a 6/42 game. The drawing show takes ten minutes, though.

              Today's winning 3-ball is going to be a number between 000 and 999.

              In a lot of states, lotteries benefit education. That makes the REAL winners the only people who can't play!

                I think Mr. Moose should be allowed to drop those ping pong balls on Captain Kangeroo.
