IMHO I think it's the terminal RNG's that should not be trusted, QP players don't know how easy
these machines can be tampered with. The firmware could be changed daily and they all use
RNG's. I find it funny that even those who claim they would stop playing if their lottery switched
they still buy QP's. They trust the terminal RNG but not the drawing RNG.
Over a series of games we can expect certain elements to appear and in my analysis I have found
that the draws meet the expected. There is no way that I know of to check the QP lines that are
sold for these qualities.
Let me explain. Lets say that most pick-5 number game have a certain percent of different digits
that hit in each draw. This is true although each matrix is a little different. I could design a RNG
that would produce more lines that had more or less total digits which would mean that the QP's
would win less often. The lower prizes would not be affected and because most people don't buy
enough QP's to run a analysis they would not be aware of anything. Most JP's are won playing QP
but that's because they make up most sales. If the percent of sales QP vs SP are equal then one
might conclude the game is fair. I am not saying that the lotteries do this but it is possible and how
would we be able to detect it. They could release a list of all combos that were sold showing if the
line was a QP or SP but so far I have not seen a lottery offer this data.
