Anything is possible.

The real question is, why do people who are convinced the lottery is rigged continue to play it?

I agree. Probably the similar reason people eat fast food inspite of the fact that not only is it bad for you but it supports modern slavery.

    "I agree. I dont think they are rigging the lottery but at the same time they dont make it easy either."

    Well, WHICH iz it?...it CAN'T be BOTH..

    If ,as you say, "at the same time they don't make it easier either", then you are REALLY saying , that deep down inside, you too believe itz rigged.. maybe cause you're afraid of being ridiculed here?... BE A PERSON THAT STANDS BEHIND YOUR CONVICTIONS..!!

    No forward Progress has ever been achieved by being afraid to be bold enough to be of a difference of opinion, held by most people of the Day..!!

    Most people are sheep, but very few are Shepherds! Wink

              Why do the people that think it's rigged assume it is with the balls.  Do you not realize you are watching a VIDEO of the draw.  It is not live , or at least not that I know of.

              Deep fakes are definitely a possibility. Are they likely though? Are they necessary? Every lottery has a liability limit that keeps them from going broke, and if they wanted to manipulate the distribution or frequency of winners because the marketing dept said it would increase sales, they could do it much cheaper just by changing the matrix.

                Only the lottery would know if it's likely.  As the saying goes "If there is a will , there is a way". I just think if they really wanted to rig it they can do it an easier way than manipulating  the balls.

                  Since the "Balls" are THE crucial components of the nature of THIS Sport?,.. how else might they rig it?

                  You think maybe they'd change the day of the week the drawing actually occurred on, tell us "Sorry it was No No Wednesday's results" , when it was really Saturday's?Thud

                  Yeah, THAT WOULD FOOL ALOT OF US..!! LOL

                    History shows that draws that have been rigged were rigged by individuals benefiting themselves, not the lottery agencies. 

                    The fact is, state lotteries want people to win. Why? It's good for business. If nobody ever won, why bother buying a ticket. The money paid for lottery wins is provided by ticket sales.

                    Lotteries don't have to rig draws, the odds and payouts of the games are another reason why. 

                    If a person truly believed a lottery game is rigged, why even buy a ticket?

                      Just for convo and not necessarily my opinion :  Perhaps they are rigged but not for any foul play .  Maybe it actually keeps someone from rigging their machines if they know what and when a jackpot is suppose to happen. ( This would have prevented Eddie Tipton from manipulating the machine ).Maybe they have to know the numbers before hand in order to code the tickets ?  Just a thought so you can say I'm wrong if you want to...lol

                        All I can say is folks that believe the lottery is fixed shouldn't be playing.

                        I also believe that such folks really have no concept of the odds of jackpot games, especially MM and  PB. 

                        MM 1 in 302,575,350

                        PB 1 in 292,201,338

                        "They" don't have to rig anything. Those odds do it for them. 

                        Again. Look hard at those numbers. They are HUGE. 

                        Even the Lotto in my state of Texas has pretty long odds. 1 in 25,827,165. You're just not going to see very many winners with odds like that. 

                        Amen to everything you said!   Like the casinos, the odds are overwhelmingly in the operation's favor.  I And when there is a hit on the Mega or Power,  the system has raked in so many more milions from all the losing draws before that hit.   Then they either pay out over time, which means investing what they don't pay the winners so that it makes MORE money over the time of the installments, OR they slash the amount if you choose lump sum.  They have a vested interest in it not being rigged.

                        Seems so simple: three digits, 168 to one odds when boxed... all you have to do is pick the right ones!

                              Aren't you worried the lottery corporation will find out you are warning us?
