No wonder Indiana Hoosier Lottery has a report grade of a "D"!!  I absolutely hate that draws for games like Cash5 and Quick Draw are computer generated.  WHY???  After the last 2 Cash5 draws, I among others are convinced that there is obviously some manipulating of the computerized draws going on and it's frustrating to see what is happening here with the Indiana Hoosier Lottery as they "continually" rape and rob the players.  This needs to STOP.  Better yet, we will.  Cash5 jackpot is up to $688,000 and no one has hit it.  Here is why:

January 18, 2016:  6 15 16 31 41

January 19, 2016:  6 14 16 35 40

Come on Hoosier Lottery, geez!  Even Stevie Wonder can see how bogus you are!  Convert to conduct "true" lottery game draws and more people would play!  This is disgusting and we are OVER your cheating ways here in Indiana! DO AWAY WITH COMPUTERIZED DRAWS! Argue

    I only play when the JP gets high but do not understand why the hoosier lottery is still using computerized drawings for C5. I just can't believe nobody has hit this JP yet and it's this high. I can relate to your frustration

      I don't normally play the Cash 5 and didn't realize it was this high.  I will grab a ticket or two today when I get my PB and Lotto ticket.  I do agree that they should go to ball drawings!

        I play the Pick 6. Do they use an RNG for that?

        May the balls bounce in your favor!

          Here's one example... look up Losing Jeff on a search.

          https://www.lotterypost.com/thread/126312

          Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

          Lep

          There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

            Yeah, what are the odds that a drawing of 6 15 16 31 41 would be followed by 6 14 16 35 40

            Everyone who isn't blind knows that it would have been more likely for the second one to be 18 21 25 36 38

             

            Oh wait, it isn't any more likely at all

             

            You are experiencing multiple misunderstandings, mostly the Law of Close Enough.

            But thanks for sharing that two consecutive draws had exactly two numbers in common.  That's got to be evidence of a fix!!!

            What are the odds?

             

            Easy answer, exactly the same odds that YOUR pick will match exactly two balls of a particular drawing.

            And we don't even have to compute the answer, they publish the odds.  1 in 7

              Odds of winning the Cash 5 are 1 in 749,398

              Here are the stats from the last drawing:

              There were 9223 winning tickets in the last drawing and the odds of a ticket winning are 1 in 9.8

              That suggests about 90,500 tickets were sold

              The probability of not winning the jackpot for a single random ticket is 749397/749398

              The probability of there not being a winner with 90,500 tickets is that to the 90500th power = 88.62%

              So the odds of a jackpot winner in the last drawing was only 11.38%

               

               

              In previous draws it would have been even less likely with fewer ticket sales

                  Odds of two consecutive Badger 5 drawings having three numbers in common is 1 in 53, exactly the same probability of your Badger 5 ticket matching 3 of the 5 numbers from a drawing.

                  BTW, the odds of a Badger 5 drawing matching all 5 numbers from the previous drawing is 1 in 169,911 which is also exactly the same odds that a ticket you buy has of matching all 5.

                    I would guess the odds of matching all 5 numbers from the previous drawing is much higher than 169,911.

                      Your guess would be incorrect, but a commonly held misunderstanding of probabilities.

                       

                      What are the odds that you purchase two quick pick tickets and they are exactly the same numbers?  Also 1 in 169,911

                       

                      While the odds of one PARTICULAR number being drawn twice in a row (for example 2 4 6 8 10) is 1 in 169,911 squared, there are 169,911 possible combinations of matching numbers  so the odds are 1 in 169,911 squared divided by 169,911 or 1 in 169,911

                       

                      You could think of the first drawing as the only drawing and the second drawing's numbers being the lottery buying a quick pick ticket for the first drawing.  Obviously their quick picket ticket would have a 1 in 169,911 chance of winning, just like everyone else's quick pick.

                          I play the Cash 5 daily and often post predictions for that game. I haven't seen it get this high in awhile.

                          Think amongst Chaos. Play in Order.
