I'm not sure what the odds of any of the games you listed are compared
to ours but PB & MM odds are huge. The bigwigs in charge like it that way.
Personally, I would like to see more winners split a jackpot rather than have
one person win more money than they'll ever spend. The attraction is an
enormous pot that has each player thinking it could be me! That thought is
fueled by an aggressive and highly effective ad campaign everytime the pot
reaches record amounts. It only takes one ticket is convincing and good for
sales when the frenzy is on. People that wouldn't normally play buy a ticket
and dream. Someone will win and that's the problem, someone.
I agree with you to a point, I wouldn't say fixed but definitely manipulated. I
think most use the qp option, me too if I play. But I only believe I have a chance
if I'm buying at the right time and the computer is selecting from the right pool
when I buy. If this were a truly random game, jp's wouldn't rise to insane levels
and there would be more winners. $20 million is a lot but $300 million sells a
lot more tickets. The balls can't be rigged but the odds of what can happen can
be examined and programed accordingly. I'll never buy the term truly random. Not
when people have a hand in setting any part of the game. There is a reason computers
are used. One ticket winning out of crazy amounts of tickets sold will never sit right
with me. If this whole Tipton fix was able to happen by tampering with the computers,
although he's in hot water now for programming his set of numbers to win..why can't
the lottery tamper legally with data, quick pick pools and winners? It's their game and
they don't want to lose. Where's the fun or profit in fair? Although they don't seem to
mind much if it's players profit otherwise they'd let random happen, no programming.
