Yup, that's why I said it is just like another big business. Also, yes, I know it can't be perfect, but looking at the track record for computers, a little human intervention shown at the end process (when the drawings take place) would go a long ways in easing sceptical minds.

I won't get into it here but I wrote a long winded semi-rant in response to the idea of Keno being started in CT a couple years ago on here, if you can find it you will understand why I don't trust those games. I haven't played Keno in years and I hardly ever see anyone here in MA play Keno anymore, probably for the exact same reason I explained in my response way back.

    Smells of a PR campaign if you ask me. Most members here are anti-RNG, he must not have seen the petitions page. RNG for the foreseeable future in Iowa. Did I miss anything?

    Sadly, I agree, although I'm glad Todd kept the door open, who knows what the future holds. Maybe Ball drawings will return despite what Mr. Rich said. I just signed the petition for that.

      We're down to the last couple questions here. Thank you for playing the lottery. We anticipate that RNGs are around to stay. We hope that by being as transparent as we have been throughout the investigation and with the proper oversight, we can gain your confidence that the games are safe. That's our responsibility and our job and it's something we take seriously.

      RNG's are around to stay? .......  Any high school geek can hack a COMPUTER PROGRAM!  How in the world can you guarantee us the games are safe?  I'll take a mechanical system over a computer system any day!

      Never give up.  Banana
