Here it is:

Really???

So you believe a video on You Tube consisting of Europeans lotteries that was clearly edited to show the draws were rigged. Not to mention the grammar and spelling was done by someone that didn't graduate 3rd grade.

If you don't like to play, fine. But that wasn't anywhere near "proof".

      Both those links show computerized drawings. I can't think of how or why the officials would, or COULD, manipulate live draws using balls, unless video editing software was involved. Computer programs can be manipulated, but not live draws, again, unless editing software was in the mix.

      I've watched enough Florida replays of Fantasy Five drawings and I've never ever seen a ball twirl in the same slot it's sucked into, and then change the number. It's extremely transparent. They don't need to manipulate the game in their favor with air sucking machines and the sort,, they do it by pre tests and post tests. That does the job just fine.

        A live ball drawing was fixed years before RNG drawings.

            In my opinion, the live drawings are just for show. There's no need for video editing as that would make things suspicious. As far as the ball games goes, the computers chooses the winning numbers before the live drawings. Whose to say that they are not doing with the Florida Lottery? Most of the people who have won the Pick-6 games used the computerized Quick Pick option over picking their own numbers based on the history archive of the games winners.

              Stack47's link is about the time when the Pennsylvania ball drawing was fixed. After that the Pa. lottery made changes.

              On number 4 in the slide show it says this:

              Though the live drawing lasts 60 seconds, it takes hours to prepare. Lottery officials conduct nine pre-draws, three rehearsal draws, a verification drawing and two post-draws to ensure no statistical parameters have been violated.

              AMAZING!!!Thud

              The numbers will tell you what numbers to play. Pay attention to the numbers.

              Don't just think outside the box, crush it.

                But how could they manipulate the balls to match what the computer picked? The chamber blows air around inside and the machine sucks the nearest ball to the opening.

                    Read the article, "White latex paint was injected into eight of ten ping-pong balls".

                      Lots of people probably thought live ball drawings couldn't be rigged in 1980 and the reason for all the pre-drawing test today. Just today a clerk was telling me how 4 minute Keno games are rigged because she "heard" a lottery official say "those number were not suppose to be drawn. From there she determined all the results of daily Keno are known before the first drawing of the day.

                        With the micro chips Pa. (and who knows how many other states)  put in the balls, now we know how, "those numbers were not supposed to be drawn".

                          I think that the purpose of the lottery is to raise money as they legally can for education(aka. government projects). The way that the lottery games are set up(IMO) is that less than 10% will be winning tickets while around 2% will have the tickets with the big prize amounts. This is just for the scratch off tickets. The ball drawings are just for show.

                            I have been noticing American lotteries being rigged Your Mega Millions and Powerball as if you compare the Amount of jackpot winners with Australian or England lotteries you will see much more jackpot winners last Australian lotto 14 people have won a jackpot sharing a jackpot.Its sad to know you spend money on a lottery thats openly rigged i am sure allot of folks will feel the same.As if the odds are not already astronomically high the officials have their hands in the cookie jars.Shame on you American and African lotteries.My own countrys lotteries are also rigged and the Americans seems too openly rigged....sad for all us lottery players

                            Its not rigged, just that the odds are stacked against you, the player.
