What states use computers to draw their numbers? It is still a relatively low number, correct? I want to follow the drawing pattern of a state that uses a computer to draw.

Thanks,

Bryan  :)

    Hi, Bryan,

    California uses computers for Daily 3, Daily Derby,( a rip-off joke, IMHO), and Fantasy Five, a 5/39 daily game.

    It still uses "Bingo Balls" for it's Super Lotto Plus, a twice weekly game of 5/47 with a bonus ball 1/27.

    Hope this helps, Good Luck with your research and your play.

    Ellie

            PA uses a computer for it's midday Pick 3 and Pick 4 draws. Ping pong balls for all other drawings.

            I believe DE uses a computer for all of its drawings.

              Thanks smd173,

              Cool, I started tracking eve PA P4 anyway. That will fit the bill.

              Thanks again,

              Bryan  :)

                      Hi hummer2 and Susan,

                      I wanted to follow a state that is computerized so I can see if there is any noticable difference between the two types of games. I wanted to see if the law of averages seems to apply to them too. If I have time this weekend I will do a 5 day drawing trial on the Delware Eve P4 game. The P4 games are the ones I am looking at now.

                      Hummer2, I would post for CA, but I just noticed you all don't have P4. Sorry...

                      Good Luck,

                      Bryan  :)
