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

On the subject of manipulated drawings, Kansas uses computers to draw their 3-ball numbers. 

I remember 509 winning three consecutive drawings in Kansas in December 2005. 

Too bad that isn't my birthday.

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!

    The odds of that (three identical draws in a row) are in 1 million, despite a Youtube video where someone incorrectly calculates the odds and breathlessly compares it to the odds of winning at Powerball.  Just goes to show the depth of misunderstanding of probabilities. 

    Which were similar to the odds that you would win $50k in Powerball, something people spend a lot of money on trying to win prizes that are even more improbable to win.

    BTW, there are currently about 70 Pick-3 drawings a day in the US, so the expecation would be that happening once every 25 years in the US.

    Of course unusual things happen all the time, we would be equally amazed if the three drawings had been 123 321 123 or 123 456 789 or any of thousands of other odd sets of numbers.  So really the expectation should be that some interesting combinations should occur quite regularly even if individually they each are 1 in a million long shots.

     

    The three drawings that following those 509's were (later to earlier):

     

    484

    358

    442

     

    What are the odds that those three exactly numbers would show up in that order?  Exactly the same as three 509's in a row.

      Well, it hit last night and didn't make a new record.  Back to the reset!  It will be awhile before it gets back up there it does grow so slowly.
