Are we all just supposed to assume that they are live just because the lottery organization says they are?  I wish they would show something in the lead in that would solidify that these drawings are happening in real time.  For all we know they could be recorded "live" an hour before and then edited and broadcast to us at the designated time.

      Worrying about whether they are lying about live draws is a waste.

      Your state is a RNG state. I would be more worried about that.

        enough said. Lottery is a system, whether you like it or not. When it is a system, it has to work in favor of those who created it.

        playing what can be afforded...spend half of what was reclaimed.

            If it's a system and not a straight up fair game regardless of where you are from then what is the point of playing?

              I think live televised does have a five second delay (check the fcc guidelines). 

              For my states evening draws are witnessed by citizens. So unless 365 witnesses are lying ... I'm apt to believe the five second delay time still shows the verified drawing. 

              For the major games: mega and pb, not sure even where they air it from and how the witness's are chosen .

              Whos to say that our post are time stamped correctly ? Seriously at some point these suspcions just fuel an unhealthy mindset.

                  Actually, its not even the Lottery organization who does the draw -- they have contracted it out to those people who faked the moon landing footage!

                    I recall watching on some videotape on either the NC or SC lottery websites, that both Midday and Evening drawings were drawn at the same time in advance of the actual scheduled "Live Drawings",and videotaped to be aired "Live" at the appropriate time.  Of course, I can't find that videotape on either of the NC or SC websites anymore.

                    Does this procedure sound familiar or plausible to anyone -  Videotaping both drawings in advance, to be aired "Live" at a later time ??? Can some states actually legally handle it this way ???

                    This would mean that the Evening Drawing can be handled in the morning after the Midday drawing, both videotaped, and aired "Live" at the appropriate Midday and Evening time slots [pre-recorded].

                    Do you really think that the 3rd party Lottery auditor [Thomas & Gibbs in NC]hangs out at the state lottery headquarters everyday waiting around for each "Live"  "on-air"drawing to take place on TV, just because they are required to be on the premises when the drawing happens ??? If this is the case, The auditor must have an office in the state lottery building.

                    I think that the auditor is there when the 2 drawings actually happen [Videotaped], but not necessarily present on the premises when the drawings are aired "Live" on TV, in which case each state should just say that the drawings are videotaped [pre-recorded] and not "Live" drawings. 

                    "Live Drawings" means taking place in the exact moment in time that the event is actually happening. Like the Oscars are Live, and not pre-recorded.

                    If the Evening drawing actually happens in the morning, then it is not a "future event", and intuitive type of people  and  remote viewers can more easily ascertain a winning number for the evening drawing, b/c the Evening numbers have already been drawn in the morning [it's a past event that has already occurred]. Does this Logic make sense ??  Blue Thinking

                        And a lot of people are quick to believe things to be true just because someone else tells you so.

                          Even "live" news broadcasts have delays.....thought everyone knew that......

                          Not sure the significance of numbers being broadcast at 10:00 vs. 10:01. The numbers that were drawn at 10:00 would still shown up when you see the video at 10:01, or 11:59 for that matter. An event is an event, the time that it occurs does not matter because the event has happened and is irreversible.

                          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?

                              Not sure if their contention is for the reason you state in your quote above. The concern is whether what they show the public is only the outcome they could have easily manipulated two hours prior. How do we know for sure that video wasn't one of ten simulated drawings chosen as the best one to fit their agenda?
