Mandate the use of ball machines.

Live Televised/streamed drawings.

Increase payout ratios (this one would problably end my tenure in the job quite quickly!)

Eliminate pre-tests.

Introduce parimutuel payouts (prize pool divided by number of winners) and thereby eliminate blocking of numbers.

Negotiate a huge salary, many perks, and a generous golden parachute for myself!

I agree with everything except the parimutuel payouts. You used to get $500 for a P3 straight, now you may get $236? No way.

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

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

    I would get rid of the pre and post tests, and lock the machines and ball sets in a vault with a live feed that records the rooms with a security guard monitoring the video feed.

    This would save tons of payroll employing dozens of people wasting 10 hours a day or more man handling machines for no good reason whatsoever. Also saves money for new machines since they wear out the machines before their time with all those dumb tests.

    The machines are already locked up in a vault. Google or go on you tube and type in "lottery drawing procedures for..." whatever state, and see what they go through. No way in the world can anyone tamper with anything.

      I don't remember the last time we did these.  I have already opened a Forum for Michigan.

      Feel free to either open a forum for your state or post here.

      I would start by adding every possible bet to pick-3 games, IE sums, pairs, any digit in any digit position, any digit in any position, etc. And if that works out, add the same options to pick-4 and pick-5 games. If the state has live ball drawings and TV cost was an issue, I live stream them on the Internet.

          I would transfer all the money into my off-shore bank account and hi-tail it to somewhere in South America.  Big Grin
