Excellent reply. I know for a fact random number generators are rigged period. Least picked numbers are used and the profits roll in. Since coming online they have risen more money in 5yrs than prior yrs even though over all playing the Lottery is down. Now most states borrow from their state run lotteries. Go figure that out.

    English is my second language just for the record ;) Thanks for helping me out lol

    Mike show me a country that dont have their problems - Yes its a pity that corrupt and greed exist in this world and yes I have even mentioned I dont trust my own countries lottery with their funny patterns etc.I can bitch and moan but it will not change anything I agree. Every person will have their own view how they see lotteries worldwide. Not long ago you had  a huge trial going....oh sorry its still ongoing.Let me refresh your memory for you. This sort of thing can happen anywhere in the world FACT. Like I said I like to follow stats on lotteries....I am not bitching. I am sure we can put this to rest now -the point have been made. You have high odds with your matrix changes and that's why you don't see regular winners. Once again every country have its problems -America too

    I respect your statement that English is your second language. Sometimes reading between

    the lines, mentally deciphering and allowing some things to pass is polite when communicating

    with people from another country. They say English is one of the hardest languages to learn. I

    am impressed with your mastery of it so far. Most Americans will never learn any more than

    English and some of them fail on nuances and specific terms. I'm OK, you're OK in America

    exists one on one, never 10 or more on one, unless of course there is a cause. This subject

    matter seems to be a lost one.

    So, rigging...In the USA, everything is big. Big business, big spending, big corporate and big

    lottery.among other things. People want big, they want first and they want it all. Lottery here

    has to keep up with what people want. Someone above said 5 years ago it wasn't this way.

    Imagine what it will be like in 10.…billion dollar jackpots with most likely, one winner. They

    have to make money and they won't if they don't keep up...with bigger prizes. Somewhere

    along the way someone got the idea that one winner of a tremendous pot was much more

    enticing to players than multi winners of any pot. Matrix changes allowed growth to balloon

    but something else changed...even with basic state jp games, the outcome was 1 winner

    more often. I don't like the changes but it seems a lot don't care one way or the other. $2 or

    $3 for a shot at millions doesn't bother people and $2 or $3 times millions of people doesn't

    bother the lottery. If they have to change the game to keep the fantasy alive for players and 

    those players want to accept more ridiculous odds and not question why, just chalk it up to

    bigger is better. It still costs roughly the same but you have to spend longer to get it...or for

    someone else to get it and if that happens, there's always next time. The lottery doesn't care

    who gets it just so they get theirs and lots of it.

          What a nice guy and one word to you "RESPECT" Dr65 ....thank you for showing the world not all Americans have xenophobic tendencies.-Thanks Mike ;).Sadly I cannot say it from some of the responses here but hey I have only said what I see.  I fully agree with your statements as like I have mentioned earlier tampering rigging can happen world wide and greed is alive it can happen everywhere and no country are exempt of it sadly as we have seen with your recent pending court cases. I agree and I am sure  allot of you will agree there is no place for it in any lottery world wide.We have high odds and we don't need manipulation in games.We can only hope to get operators that are more transparent  running the lotteries.

          Best of luck to you Dr65 and may you get a big hit as you deserve it.

            Incorrect, the Italian Superstar (superenalotto + superstar ball) is hardest to win. You must first match 6 out of 90 numbers plus superstar, also 1 out of 90 numbers. The odds is 1 in 56.035.316.700! That's right, you read correct; 1 in 56 billion! Superenalotto itself is 1 in 622 million. Why do anyone even play these lotteries?

            I don't think the SuperEna odds are that horrible, I think it's 1:622 000 000 (http://www.sisal.it/superenalotto/quanto-si-vince) Still not great odds, but not as abysmal as 1:56B

            Sweden having joined Eurojackpot was news to me, completely slipped past me. LOL

            BTW which butler service do you use? thelotter?

              Correct spot on agree with you i underestimated the high odds. Like they say if you dont play -your not in it.Good luck with your games you play

              Ricklou, what all games do you guy's have in your country? do you have the pick 3

                Helpmewin we have 2 Powerball games 5/45 20/1 and then 2 lotteries 6/49. Sadly no pick 3 games -the pick 3 games seems very popular here in the States.

                      Yes you are right quite a few of my American friends play the pick 3. A nice way to make some extra moola on the side.
